Food Friday Review – Gusto, Newcastle

Gusto Review 3

I have one of those hit and miss relationships with Gusto, I have to admit. It’s been about 50:50 for visits that I have actually been able to get in and get a seat, often being turned away for being full despite empty abundant tables.

Thankfully, towards the end of April I hit lucky! The lovely Vicky from Describe the Sky and I had a lady date and went for dinner.

After having a drink outside on a mild spring evening, we moved upstairs to our table. The dimly light restaurant feels magical with the abundance of twinkly fairy lights and mirrors to reflect the lights. We quickly settled on our choices and placed our order.

St Marys Inn Stay Review

If you can remember our first visit to St Mary’s Inn back at the end of 2014, you’ll remember us saying how much we wanted to stay over. Given the creepy nature of the property and fact the rooms look beautiful, we booked up to stay in February as a very much needed relaxing weekend.

Our room, Sweethope Loughs, was £90 for bed and breakfast for us both. When booking, I specifically asked for a view of the now derelict hospital. Pretty odd, yes, but we do love Urbex sites like 28dayslater.co.uk.
