I love pubs. Not gastro pubs – real pubs. With real pub food. Especially in the countryside. So when my husband suggested a weekend visit to Chatsworth House I immediately googled ‘traditional pubs Baslow/Beeley/Pilsley’ (the nearest villages) and discovered The Devonshire Arms in Pilsley, which is a pub with rooms! Double whammy. We ambled up there yesterday afternoon, arriving just in time to see the sun go down over the Derbyshire Dales and revel in the magnificent autumn colours of the trees.
Louisa Walters highlights where to eat out on Christmas DayTraditionally I cook a full turkey roast lunch with all the ‘allowable’ trimmings but last year the extended family were away. As there were only four of us it seemed like a good excuse to go out! I discovered that lots of restaurants are in fact open on Christmas Day and if you steer away from the top London hotels and the gourmet restaurants, it doesn’t have to cost the earth either.
Who knew that afternoon tea was invented and introduced to Victorian Society by The Duchess of Bedford (a friend of Queen Victoria) in 1840 to fill the gap between light luncheon and dinner?! I certainly didn’t. Keen to capture this tradition, St James’s Hotel and Club’s Michelin-starred chef William Drabble has recently created a selection of sweet treats and sandwiches based on authentic recipes and favourites of Queen Victoria with a modern-day twist.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
