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…

Seaham Hall- The Dining Room

On Wednesday I was super excited to travel a little bit down south towards County Durham for dinner at Seaham Hall. I was lucky enough to be invited along to try out their Dining Room restaurant which overlooks the stunning entrance to the Hall and giant whirl pool water fountain. Seaham Hall is an award-winning…

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…

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…

Housed in the opulent former bank on Collingwood Street, this bar and kitchen styles 30ft ceilings, marble pillars and classic wood decor.

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…

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. The opening of the Gosforth branch was the Friday before Mothers Day….

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. I love the idea behind this story of building great standing…

The Alchemist Newcastle

Right at the heart of the city, The Alchemist came to spread some scientific magic across the city of Newcastle back in March 2017. The Instagram worthy attractive and stylish cocktails were already renowned to some of us Geordies so you can image the excitement when The Alchemist opened up its own branch in Eldon…
