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 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…
