The Woodman’s Arms Xmas Fayre

I don’t know about you, but my favourite meal of all time has to be Christmas dinner, (mum’s is the best of course) and I often find that a festive meal out can be quite bland. Don’t get me wrong, I am particularly biased because nothing will taste better than a home cooked meal, but…

All Bar One- Newcastle Launch night

Once home to banking and finance companies, Grey Street has developed into one of the most iconic streets in Newcastle City Centre for a bit of fine dining and classy wine bars. The Victorian style buildings which now occupy the likes of Las Iguanas, Zizi and more recently Pizza Punks have always attracted my eye….

The Impeccable Pig

For a lot of us Geordies, Sunday roasts are the Holy Grail of food. Yummy Yorkshire puddings, lashings of gravy and a great cut of meat. I personally love a homemade roast dinner, can’t beat my mums (I know everyone says this) but when it comes to dining out, Newcastle has a vast selection of…

My top 3 Breakfast Spots in Newcastle

I don’t know about you but I would much prefer to get up, get dressed and go for breakfast than go out for dinner. Yeah, it is kind of nice to maybe dress up fancy and have a glass of bubbly (*cough cough, bottomless brunch anyone?) but there is something truly satisfying about starting your…

Best Cake on Brentwood

  As a student myself I am in the current stages of exam time and in need of a little something to light my spirits and refuel my mind. Along what may be described as one of Newcastle’s most glamorous streets is Cake Stories. For a long time Brentwood Avenue’s ‘place to go’ was Arlo’s….
