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! It was Easter Monday. The sun was shining, and we’d just finished a long walk from our home to Newcastle Quayside when we hopped […]
