It happened, I had my first Afternoon Tea. Yeah I know, it’s taken me 21 years to finally try one of the most insta-worthy experiences. It was worth the wait though, believe me! I visited The Joinery, a gorgeous but rather small tearoom in Newcastle Upon Tyne and I was booked in to try one of their Afternoon Tea’s. The tearoom is a beautiful place, full of light and swoon-worthy decor. I was in love pretty much as soon as I walked through the door! I took my Mum along with me as it was her birthday and we decided to celebrate it there, since she didn’t want anything too elaborate or fussy, it was a lovely low-key celebration for her and she had a wonderful day. Starting off with tea – naturally and unlimited pots, it was just what we needed after a busy and early morning. Tea always… View Post

It’s about time that Newcastle got a decent place to consume various forms of meat other than Longhorns (Sorry, Longhorns, you just don’t do it for me…) that have a cocktail menu and focus on slow cooked meats. I jumped at the chance to review Red’s and I shot them over an email asking if I could come along and tell you all what I thought. As soon as we arrived and walked in, we didn’t expect it to be what it was! It was huge, extending right to the back with another entrance out to the Grainger Market. With a huge bar, open kitchen and authentic American decor, I really loved the ambience of the place. The music they played was great, it went from Dolly Parton to my favourites… Foo Fighters. The music was a little loud, and my Mum isn’t really a fan of a lot of the music… View Post

With a new burger place seemingly popping up every week in Newcastle, and my devotion to The Fat Hippo, I have to admit, I hadn’t heard of The Grind. That was until late last year when the lovely Chiesh invited me to their Pop Up launch at the lovely No. 28. Not one to say no to trying a new burger, I hopped along. Spending an evening with both Mandy Charlton and Laura Dawson is always a treat, so it made this night even sweeter. Okay, before I get into the review. I have to admit something… The first time I went I forgot my camera and the pictures, well. I’m not going to embarrass myself by posting them on here! Obviously I decided that I must go back to get good photos, because I needed to do these burgers justice. There’s no weird toppings, odd concoctions or fancy names. They’re just good,… View Post

Hi there! Back again with another food review. What can I say? I love to eat. George’s is a place I’d had my eyes on before it even was announced that it’d be opening in Eldon Square. I’d seen the candy floss gin cocktail floating about on Instagram and immediately stalked their account – and sulked realising there was only one restaurant open in Nottingham. Fast forward a few months and it was announced that it was opening in Eldon Square. I was pretty damn excited and knew I had to attend. I sent a cheeky email and asked if I could come along to review and I took my foodie friend Gemma from Gemma’s Little World along with me. We always take each other along to food reviews, it’s kind of become our thing. George’s are known for their British dishes and sea-side spins on some classic food. Which… View Post

Bill’s is a restaurant founded on fresh produce and good food. Bill’s started off as a Green Grocer, selling fresh fruit and vegetables. The shop was hit by a flood, so when they decided that it was time to re-open, they added a cafe! Fast forward a few years and 70+ restaurants later, Bill’s is a chain with a great menu, great staff and great morals. Each restaurant has a shop attached, where you can buy the lemonade, jams, cookies and more. I was invited along to try the lunch/dinner menu after trying their breakfasts one morning. My dad told them about my blog and why I was taking 100’s of photos of pancakes, and they very kindly invited me back!  My pancakes were adorned with strawberries, blueberries and bananas which made me feel a little less guilty about drowning them in syrup! 🍓🍌Throwback to this amazing breakfast from @billsrestaurant… View Post
