Gluten Free Dining in Newcastle/Gateshead/Durham

This has been a labour of love (and still is a work in progress), but on the blog is now an up-to-date gluten free guide for dining in Newcastle/Gateshead/Durham areas for 2019! This is one of the most popular pages on my blog, and it was woefully out of date (I apologise!). So, I’ve went […]

BALTIC Kitchen

One of my favourite things to do when it’s sunny is to go for a walk along the Quayside. Pair that with stopping for lunch somewhere and that’s the icing on the cake! We hadn’t been to the BALTIC in actual years, so decided to be cultured and view some of the exhibitions (and go […]

Ramada Encore Gateshead

We were so lucky to be invited to Ramada Encore Gateshead for a gorgeous dinner date. Just what we needed! This week has been so busy, for both of us, and we’ve felt like we’ve barely said anything other than a “hello” and “goodbye” as we ran out of the house on a morning/returned home […]
