Tucked away in the George Washington Hotel, Carter & Fitch is a new heavy hitter on the South of Tyne dining scene. Given the size of Washington and the captive audience of hotel guests, restaurants have always been lacking in the area.
This is where the £500,000 investment in the dining venue starts to earn its keep.
85ft under the oh so cool Ouseburn lies the Victoria Tunnel.
Built and opened in 1842, the former wagon way is now a volunteer led tourist attraction and we visited on Halloween for a spooky tour.
It’s not often I ask my lovely readers for anything but it would mean the world if you could nominate my little corner of the interweb for an NE Blogger Awards.
If you have 2 minutes to spare, you can nominate me over at www.nebloggerawards.co.uk at the bottom of the page. Feel free to add me to which ever category you think is best.
I have been blogging for 6yr in this current guise and I have seen many wonderful things happen, change and develop in this time and I have met some incredible people during this time.
Thank you and much love!
When asked what my number 1 fear is, I say boats. Without shadow of a doubt. Does it stop me from experiencing new things? No, I have rode speedboats in Cuba, traversed the Rhine in a boathotel, Gondola’s in the Grand Canal and sailed around Manhattan – and hated every single minute of it. DFDS challenged me on my fear.
Taking the bull by the horns, the Sunderland Air Show sailing would be the perfect time to beat my fear once and for all. At 32 years old, if I can manage a day at sea, imagine the places I could go!
It’s that time of year. Once again Newcastle Restaurant Week is upon us for a summery appearance!
