I first heard about this adorable little café after reading Cloud In A Teacup’s post, and knew that when I next had an opportunity for lunch in Newcastle city centre that this would be at the top of my list. It’s a tiny little place (just behind Barker and Stonehouse, near St James’ Park, on Leazes […]


Now, I’m going to be honest with you here. Man Vs Food in South Shields (they also have a branch in Heaton as well) is not somewhere that I would ever choose to visit. I’m not into huge portions of meat smothered in BBQ sauces which is impossible to finish. However, I was not making […]


It was my birthday a few weeks ago, and what is a birthday without cake? Well, nothing (in my books!), so a friend and I booked to go and have afternoon tea at The Great British Cupcakery in Newcastle, which is just by the Quayside. I’d never visited before, but I follow them on Instagram […]

We were kindly invited to visit River Bar in Washington which has just had a major refurbishment. However, as always, are thoughts are completely our own about the experience we had!
