  • Colmans Seafood Temple South Shields

    Colmans Seafood Temple South Shields

    We have been itching to go to Colmans Seafood Temple since it opened last Summer.  Located in the iconic Ghandi’s temple (a former bandstand come public toilet!) near to Gypsy’s Green stadium, the finish line for the Great North Run. The Colmans’ brand is strong in South Shields dishing up fish and chips to South Shields […]

  • Northumbrian Piper Under New Management

    Northumbrian Piper under New Management

    We’d heard that the Northumbrian Piper had changed hands and were making changes. This was great news as we used to visit quite often, then it started to go downhill. It had got to a point that we used to visit mainly because of its handy location, not because of anything else. The food had […]

  • Zucchini Pasta Bar Newcastle

    Zucchini Pasta Bar Newcastle | Pasta Takeaway Near Me

    I’d wanted to visit Zucchini Pasta Bar a few times since it first opened a year ago, but I never found the opportunity. The Newcastle Pasta Bar is located on what I call the Magic Roundabout, previously Swan House Roundabout, but also known as 55 degrees north. You will have driven past it 100 times. Zucchini […]

  • Chilli Padi Newcastle

    Chilli Padi Newcastle

    A Friday night in Newcastle without our kids is a rare treat. It’s not that often that Cat and I get to have a date night and tonight was it. Our venue of choice was Chilli Padi. We wanted to try out somewhere new, but relatively close to the Haymarket as we were going to […]

  • Butterfly Cabinet Heaton

    Butterfly Cabinet, Heaton Review

    For what seems to be 10 years we’ve driven past the Butterfly Cabinet and previously Belle and Herbs. Every time we went be there was a huge queue and we said: “we must try there one day”. It’s daft that it has taken so long to eventually getting around to it. Friends that have been had mentioned that […]

  • Scalinis Gosforth Review

    Scalini’s Gosforth Review

    The last time we visited Scalini’s, Gosforth we had an… entertaining experience! As a result, it’s taken us nearly 2 years to return to give it another go. It’s a shame as it is literally 10 minutes walk from our house. I’ll explain our previous visit after our review Scalini’s Gosforth Review As part of […]

  • Chinese Gosforth Palace

    Gosforth Palace / Poons Gosforth Review

    Gosforth High Street offers a wealth of different restaurants. We’ve created a list and we’re trying to visit all Gosforth restaurants this year as a 2018 goal, starting with Gosforth Palace.. Gosforth Palace Located just up off Gosforth High Street on Salters Road, Gosforth Palace is hard to miss. Previously called Poons Gosforth, in the […]

  • The Bryherstones Country Inn Sunday Lunch

    The Bryherstones Sunday Lunch, Burniston

    On our recent weekend in Scarborough, we headed to the Brytherstones Country Inn for Sunday lunch.  My parents and Nana had come down to spend the day with us, so thought I’d better book somewhere in advance.  Our first goto site was TripAdvisor and we were swamped with options. We’re always looking for somewhere new […]

  • Hadrian's Tipi Newcastle 2017

    Hadrians Tipi, Newcastle 2017

    Always looking for a new adventure we thought it would be fun to try out Hadrian’s Tipi, Newcastle on its opening weekend. Sure, if it’s just opened not many people will know about it! If we go around 5 pm on a Saturday night there’ll be loads of space and plenty of atmospheres! Or as it turned […]
