Thanks for stopping by my little slice of the internet. I blog here about Newcastle restaurants, North East food & drinks producers, and food-based events in my favourite city, and sometimes beyond…
❓ Why Newcastle Eats
I’m just here to share my experiences of eating out in Newcastle restaurants with you. The standard of the offerings in the region has gone up in the past few years, and it’s rewarding to see people try somewhere independent that they might not have otherwise off the back of 500 words and some photos.
I try to be a bit different from your typical-demographic-food-blogger. It’s not won me any friends, but people usually respect that 💅🏼
After to-ing and fro-ing with paid content for many years, it’s time to give in.
I’m just not wealthy enough to be able to eat every meal, or go to every event that I’ve ever wanted, otherwise you’d just see Michelin star restaurant reviews from all over the world here. It’s extremely difficult to turn down some honestly fantastic opportunities which I would have otherwise missed out on, so I will endeavour to clearly denote these posts with a star in the title, like this*, and tag them with “ad” or “sponsored”.
Integrity is really fucking important to me, so if you want to question it, say hi and I’m more than happy to voice my opinions on that.
🤔 Bit About Me
Current likes: bigger portions of non-fussy food, (not calling it craft) beer, more relaxed dining options.
Current dislikes: the copy/paste nature of high street chains in NCL, jumping on food trends, a lack of plates.
I’m just a blogger, so don’t expect Marina O’Laughlin standard here, and my photos are always just from an iPhone. Sorry, not sorry. Finally, “if you don’t like what’s being said, then change the conversation.”
