Dominating the former Finbarr’s restaurant, Kingslodge Inn have arrived and made their mark in a sleepy corner of Durham city centre.
Hidden in a little oasis of calm, backed with woodland of Flass Vale, the pub is only 10 minute walk from both the bus station, train station and student accommodation.
We tried out the newest member of the Inn Collection family to put it through its paces.
Have you visited the Metrocentre since it revamped and expanded the eateries available in the Qube? There’s plenty of choice from the big chains and usual suspects but our favourite is Thaikhun which offers a taste of Thai street food right here in the North East.
On a gloriously sunny day, we found ourselves at the Seaside hunting out lunch that wasn’t fish and chips. The queues were horrendous and with 2 hungry souls to be fed after a long walk, we needed a new plan! The all new Fat Buddha Sunderland at Seaburn has opened up in the prime seafront location. With views out over the sands and the sea, we headed in for a Thai lunch.
Hiding out in the first floor of Liberty Browns in Sunderland, Saucy Burger has slipped under a lot of peoples radars and arrived on the NE dining scene without too much fuss.
Conveniently located off Wessington Way on the outskirts of the city, we fought through the Saturday crowds to try out the burgers.
Tucked away on Newcastle’s most revived street – High Bridge, Pleased To Meet You has carved a name for itself on both the dining and drinking scene.
With an impressive food menu and an even more impressive Gin list, I visited to check out their summer menu.
