One of my favourite things to do on a Saturday morning is get brunch. Usually that brunch is at Allard’s Lounge in Tynemouth. However, there is a new contender for the top spot now, after we went to Post Box in Ponteland. This lovely cafe can be found on Ponteland high street and serves breakfast […]

We were kindly invited to visit St Mary’s Inn for afternoon tea. It sounded like the perfect excuse for a girly get-together, so I invited my wonderful friend Christine to come along. Here’s how we got on… St Mary’s Inn is the second venture of Jesmond Dene House, and is a pub and B&B in […]

Quilliam Brothers has been at the top of my ‘must-visit’ places for some time now. It’s a teahouse with a very European, continental feel, and a home cinema in the basement.
