Unlimited prosecco and defrosted desserts.
From one of the best patisseries in Newcastle 🍰
Sniffing barley malt and taking tea while the sun shines 🥃
My favourite afternoon tea in the North-East.
After years of people moaning for one, Newcastle’s very own Patisserie Valerie (NE1 5AE) opened up last month, one of some 90+ stores in the UK.
Another afternoon tea!
Another tale of blogging woe. And cake.
Afternoon tea 2.0
So…Christmas 2014 has been and gone. It’s been a good one, but I’m definitely already looking forward to properly getting cracking in 2015 and getting “back on the wagon” – in both actually writing on here, and trying out a meat-free and alcohol-free January given that the festive bloat is at 7lbs and rising…oh boy.
Reflecting on the last few months, and the end of 2014.
If I had a quid for every time I’ve been asked, “where is the best afternoon tea in Newcastle”…I’d have a few quid to spend on another afternoon tea, of course. Can’t get enough!
You know what this is going to say, right?
Did you get the idea that we quite like a bit of afternoon tea?
As we’ve said before, everything Terry Laybourne touches seems to turn to gold, and before even clicking on this, you’ve probably already guessed that afternoon tea at Cafè 21 in Fenwicks is nigh on perfect.
**UPDATE – Fisherman’s Lodge closed not long after and has not reopened**
We are big advocates for the abandonment of Tripadvisor – in fact that’s why we started Newcastle Eats in the first place. If more people would look up some decent reviews of a place before going, rather than a quick browse on TA, we’d be happy. But sometimes you can’t ignore it – especially with classic management replies like this:
“your ingratitude…demonstrates typical bad manners of some people in this region”.
“your(sic) obviously another Egon Ronay – which seeing as he has gone is good to hear”
“we could not put (fish) on the menu for anything less than £30-£40 a dish”.
“i was told (my car) would be clamped…the manager threatened to set his german shepard(sic) on me”.
