A lovely visit to @thestarinnthecityyork for my Mum’s birthday. We went for the daily menu which included a ham terrine for starter and a pheasant and mushroom vol au vant for main.
Both the food and service were great. It was a great setting too, next to the river and park (it was sad to see the river so high but 🤞🏻 it starts to go down soon). We even saw a squirrel run past the window. 😁
Okay, there’s a new #AccessibleYork post up on the blog today, highlighting some wheelchair-accessible pubs and bars in the city centre. Fancying a bar crawl as a mobility aids user? I’ve got your back, gang. Link's in my bio!⠀
It always amazes me just how difficult it can be to find comprehensive access information online. Having to thoroughly research and plan in advance is definitely one of the most frustrating and time-consuming elements of this disability life, and it’s almost unbelievable that businesses and organisations haven’t really realised how much additional custom they could gain from having a single page of useful access information online. Yours sincerely, a gal who’s spent 40 minutes chasing up a simple link to allergen information from a well-known chain this week. 💆🏼♀️🙋🏼♀️⠀
Luckily there are some brilliant apps and organisations out there these days (looking at you, @accessableuk!), but there’s a long old way to go. How do you think we can encourage more businesses and organisations to take the initiative and provide this info online? Do you know of any who do it particularly well at the moment? 👩🏼🦼💛
Anyone else can’t wait for Summer? Feels like January and February have lasted at least 300 decades and I, for one, am looking forward to pootling about in a vest top and shorts moaning about how hot it is and how I can’t wait for Autumn. A bit like when I took this photo last year, in case anyone is wondering why no-one is wearing a coat in this photo (the real answer being because we’re Northern and we can stand the cold 💪 Coats are for wusses).
