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….

Riverview Kitchen Durham

Usually I hear about somewhere new because I have seen it advertised on social media and they have created an account themselves and posting loads of content. With the Riverview Kitchen in Durham it was different, although they have a Facebook page, they don’t have a website or instagram page so the only way I…

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…

Caffe 1901 Deli

This weekend I finally got the chance to try out the newest addition to the 1901 family, over on New Bridge Street, the ever so pretty Caffe 1901 Deli. If you are a regular reader of my blog you will know two things, one that I am an avid lover of brunch and two that…

HWKR Street Food Market

Yesterday I was invited along by the lovely PR and marketing manager from Lola Jeans, Lorna, to her blogging event which she ran over at the HWKR street food market. Although this quirky recycled shipping container-turned food and drink hangout has been around for a few years now, I had yet to check this place…

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…

Revolution Newcastle

Revolution Newcastle is a renowned cocktail bar in the centre of Newcastle just down from the station. Housed in the opulent former bank on Collingwood Street, this bar and kitchen styles 30ft ceilings, marble pillars and classic wood decor. We were lucky enough to be invited along to try out their new spring-summer menu. We…

Aidan’s Kitchen

On a sunny Saturday morning a friend and I went down to Aidan’s kitchen in Sandyford for a weekend brunch. We arrived around 10.30am and luckily got a table by the window where other tables had been reserved (probably best for the weekend rush). The simplistic decor of white and grey compliments the kitchen well…

The Dispensary Coffee House

If you haven’t seen or heard about the brand new opening of The Dispensary near St. James Park Stadium, then where the heck have you been!? Posted weeks in advance on their instagram account, were special previews of what they were bringing to the toon and what they were bringing, looked mighty fine! Getting extremely…

Proven Goods Co. Doughnuts

Proven Goods Co. doughnuts are possibly the best sweet treats in the Toon. No seriously! For a gal who isn’t into doughnuts as much as brownies or cake etc. I would choose this place time and time again. The spectacular doughnut company has quite literally taken Newcastle by storm when it started out on the…
