Barluga Gosforth

With branches not on Grey Street, Morpeth and Gosforth High Street, Barluga is the new place to be. The gastro-pub style menu with a mix of comfort foods, modern British classics and an a la carte menu what more could we ask for.

Banyan Newcastle

I had the pleasure of checking out the newest member of Newcastle’s bar and restaurant club, Banyan. Taking over the old Jamie Italian’s near Greys monument, the Indian fig tree named restaurant follows the message of its brand meaning, spreading wide ranging aerial roots.

Chaia Tea Bar

Featured numerous times on my Instagram stories, Chaia Tea Bar became one of my favourite coffee and tea spots very quickly. Situated opposite Have To Love on Gosforth High Street, this tea emporium is an extremely cosy spot. My favourite is the window seat where giant cushions and throws engulf you as you watch the...

Flat Caps Coffee

Subtle interior, potted plants and cracking coffee. Priding themselves as being coffee connoisseurs, the guys at Flat Caps offer coffee three ways. The fairly traditional filtered coffee which most of your regular coffee houses will produce, aeropressed which brews coffee under pressure creating a strong flavour or syphon.
