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….

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…

NE1 Restaurant Week: The Muddler

I think a lot of us Newcastle foodies will all agree, NE1 restaurant Week is without a doubt one of our favourite weeks of the year. It comes around twice, occurring in winter and summer with the latter falling on the week August 5th till 11th and I had to get involved. With offers typically…

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

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…

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…
