  • Colonel Cuts the Mustard - Colonel Porter's Emporium Review

    Ever heard of Colonel Porter? Apparently he invented Newcastle Brown Ale in the 1920’s and travelled around the world distributing it. We paid a visit to the “Tavern, Botanical Garden and Rhum Bar” named after him to check out the grub on offer.

  • Greed is Good - Rub Smokehouse Review

    Rub Smokehouse is one of the latest contenders in the ‘dude food’ battle – basically the bigger the portion, the better. Think double cheeseburgers INSIDE calzone pizzas, towering mountains of belgian waffles and fried chicken and every man versus food (#foodporn) dish imaginable. Greed is good here people! The restaurant is in The Gate complex, […]

  • Meet Me Here For Meat And Beer - Bierex Review

    Meeting up with my friend GG we blew away the Monday blues with a trip to Bierrex. Having heard good things about the self proclaimed ‘finest BBQ spot in Newcastle,’ it was time to investigate if this was true… Bierrex hangs its hat on two things – beer (duh), and the best quality meat, aged in Europe’s only himalayan […]

  • Alchemy and Gastronomy - The Botanist Review

    We thought it high time we checked out the bar and restaurant that everyone in the Toon is talking about to see if it lived up to the hype. With a name like ‘The Botanist‘ we were looking forward to lots of fresh herbs and other plant-based ingredients. My friend SK and I turned up for dinner […]
