I was so happy here and as the name suggests, very cosy at The Cosy Club in Derby. The surroundings were amazing, fabulously decorated venue and plenty of space. They had separate menus for different tastes and needs! I was in some kind of Free From Heavenly place. There is a good little mix when us girls get together (no not that little mix), one of us is gluten free, one vegan and one, well how shall we describe her? A non free from foodie?
It was just great to have our own menus. I wanted to show mine off and show it to the world, saying 'look at me, I have my own menu, to myself, MINE!! I felt sorry for the girl who wanted to take our order as we were so wrapped up in the excitement of menu proudness we were then spoilt for choice and took ages to decide. Well you can take your time when you have a choice. Great selection of food and the menus are available to view online, I will pop the link on at the end of this post and you can also view the venue, it really is beautiful.
After another millennium had passed I opted for a classic burger and upgraded my fries to sweet potato fries. That got me thinking, do sweet potatoes have a better status over conventional potatoes? Are they more important? Special in some way? I don't know but I had them anyway. Everything tasted sensational. A burger with a gluten free cob, YES!!! Great tasting sweet potato fries and a lovely coleslaw on the side. I also went for the extra slice of cheese on my burger, I know.......pushed the boat out in big style.
Get a look at that dessert though eh? A warm gluten free chocolate brownie with vanilla ice cream and yes it tasted as good as it looked. I accompanied it with a latte coffee including a dash of Bailey's too, talk about a treat. I then wondered on the Monday morning why I hadn't lost any weight that week. I looked at the scales in dismay, thinking about how many miles I'd walked with the new Fitbit. I felt as though I had walked to China and back and with no result and then I remembered that I had overloaded the calories slightly for which I am not going to feel any guilt. Not one bit!
So can I recommend the Cosy Club? Oh yes and I think you should try it if you haven't already. It's the kind of place you could throw on a vintage style dress and dance like you have won Strictly but that's just my fantasy. I was just dressed in my cropped jeans and t shirt, no dancing took place, only in my head obviously. The staff are so friendly, very patient and if you have a restricted diet I am sure you will find something to please. They are situated at Royal Building, Victoria St, Derby DE1 1ES and the website is:
they also have a Facebook page at:
Take a look and see what you think. I would advise to book as it can get busy which doesn't surprise me. Thank you for reading today. Please join me again tomorrow as I will be having a little chat about Autism on Autism Support Saturday.
Take care for now........
