14 Best Cafes in Newcastle

Coffee and Brunch. Two of my favourite things. I am now a fully fledged coffee lover so I’ve been spending a lot of time searching for the best cafes in Newcastle and this right here is the ultimate guide to my favourites.

Pizza Punks Has Arrived In Durham

The latest addition to the Riverwalk in Durham is possibly the best yet; Pizza Punks has finally arrived in Durham and I am super excited about it!

Following the opening of Pizza Punks latest venue in Durham, I was very kindly invited down to grab a pizza, a few drinks and, of course, a few photos. Let me take you through what’s on offer.

A Quest To Find The Best Burgers In The North East

No, this is not a drill. I’m finally ready to set off on probably the most insanely brilliant quest of all time; a quest to find the best burgers in the North East of England. This is where it all comes together; a post that will never quite be finished. There will never be a time when I’m not searching for the next best burger in the North East of England.

Turtle Bay: Welcome to Durham

With the arrival of Turtle Bay alongside the River Wear, Durham has immediately upped it’s game. I love Durham so it’s great to see a national powerhouse setting up for Durham’s revival. With the additions of the Riverwalk and the under-construction Milburngate, Durham is the perfect place to visit. No more admiring the beautiful city from a train window as you pass through to Newcastle or York.

For those not in the know, Turtle Bay is a Caribbean bar and restaurant serving up soul food alongside their infamous 2 for 1 (not from 7pm to 9:30pm/10pm on Fridays and Saturdays) cocktails. We’re talking jerk chicken, baby back ribs, curried goat and sweet plantain plus plenty of options for vegetarians/vegans too. I’ve been a few times previously when I lived in York so I’m really excited for this to be on my doorstep.
