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….

Aveika Sunday Roast

I think we can all agree that a good cooked Sunday Roast is the ideal way to spend the last day of the weekend. There is nothing quite like a homecooked roast and we all can say our mum’s own are the best. But when it comes to eating out it can be rather difficult…

Las Iguanas Newcastle

I was lucky enough to be invited down to Las Iguanas Newcastle this week to try out their amazing Latin American food. If you aren’t familiar with the franchise, Las Iguanas, was founded back in 1991 in Bristol and if you’ve ever been you will know why it has become such a success. Newcastle is…

Ghetto Golf Newcastle

Ghetto Golf has taken over Newcastle and it is so far living up to its slogan- it is quite literally ‘sicker than your average’ mini golf course. If you haven’t heard about this new crazy golf venue that has taken over The Clay Shed in Hoult’s Yard, then where have you been!? This neon, spray…

The Alchemist Newcastle

Recently I was very lucky to be invited along to the Newcastle venue of The Alchemist to try out their food and drink menus. The Newcastle location is situated in the heart of the city in the Intu Eldon Square food Hall near the Grey’s Monument entrance. I had booked a table on a Monday…

A Day in Edinburgh

Scotland may be known for being a bit damp and cold but there is a hell of a lot on offer further up north. From luxury shopping to historic castles Edinburgh has the lot and that is exactly why I went on a day trip with my housemates this week. We stepped off the train…

My Delhi Newcastle

Step straight into Delhi right off one of Newcastle’s busiest streets. My Delhi is the newest Indian street-food restaurant to take Newcastle by storm. Located on Clayton Street, this streetery is inspired by the vendors of Delhi with an all round authentic vibe from the interior to the dishes.   On arrival we walked into…

The Woodman’s Arms

I get asked so much where is good to eat in the North East, and more recently where is good outside Newcastle. Well, I am more than delighted to say that my recent visit to The Woodman’s Arms in Whickham has firmly answered that question. I was lucky enough to be invited along one evening…

Lola Jeans

Lola Jeans in Newcastle is the second location of the Newcastle based bar and restaurant chain. The original Tynemouth hot spot boasts a quirky set up, yet fulfilling the beachy relaxed vibe. I was lucky enough to be invited along to the Newcastle venue located on Market Street right in the heart of the city…
