Date night is something my Hubby and I always try to make time for. Normally it will be a simple ready meal for 2 at home in front of the TV before we go and curl up in bed. (I know the exciting lives of parents)
But every so often our date nights become special. We will switch things up and instead of staying at home and watching another film that I know my Hubby will just fall asleep half way through. We will get dressed up and actually leave the house, the kids and actually Go Out.
The Leisure Exchange has always been one of our favourite spots for going out as my Hubby loves Frankie & Benny’s. He actually took me there on our second date and let me order as many pitchers of cocktails as I wanted. (To say I ended that date tipsy is an understatement!).
So when I was invited on The Leisure Exchange Bloggers Night Out, I knew straight away who my plus one would be.
We started our night in Pizza Hut, As some people may know from the ads on TV that Pizza Hut have made some changes to the menu by adding some new and exciting toppings like Texas Meat Melt Down, Philly Cheese Steak and Heavenly Veg. To go with these new pizza’s they have also created some luxuriously thick ice cream milkshakes that come in a range of mouth-watering flavours.
It isn’t just the menu that has had a bit of shake up, the restaurant has had a new makeover and is now sporting bright lights, funky art work and a fun designed ice cream factory, that makes eating in the new and improved Pizza hut more of an experience then just a meal out.
We choose the New Orleans Cajun Sizzler with stuffed crust that is bruised with garlic butter. This new pizza topping is made up of highly seasoned chicken, mixed pepper, red onions and Roquito chillies that give it a lovely kick and leaves your lips tingling. We opted to share an individual pizza as it was more than enough for us 2, when you add in the unlimited salad bowls.
After a great meal we moved on to Hollywood bowl to have a “friendly” game of bowling. Any one who know me will tell you have a competitive streak, so when it came to bowling losing wasn’t an option and in my pursuit of winning I managed to get 3 strike in a row, which is called a Turkey so the staff at Hollywood bowl decided to do the Turkey Dance.
Which you can watch HERE.
We then moved on the Frankie and Benny’s to try out their new dessert menu. I was not prepared for all the new delicious puddings that were brought out but the one that stood out to me the most was The Can’t Decider was great for someone like me because when it comes to puddings I find it so difficult to choose just one.
It made up of 4 small pieces of cakes, tarts and pies such as Smooth and rich chocolate fudge cake, a deliciously moreish Oreo cheesecake, a delicate Pecan pie and a mouth-watering Citrus tart all served with a bowl of vanilla ice-cream. If you choose this dessert you are bound you find something you will love and again there is more than enough for you to share.
We ended our date night in the Cineworld. Which I know it is a bit of a date night cliché but nothing really beats snuggling up in a dark cinema and having a smooch while watching Captain America : Civil War, which is the prefect sort of film for me and my hubby to enjoy together as he loves all the fighting, action and things blowing up, while I get to have a cheeky prev at the super heroes on the big screen.
It was the ultimate date night.
