Eats form the Street Teesside Park

Back in the beginning when I first started this blog, my main goal was to share my love for my local community and document the lovely eating places I discover along the way. Although small, Middlesbrough is a fantastic area for events and one thing in particular that I’ve been loving over this past year is the monthly farmer’s markets taking place across the North East. Here I’ve been able to purchase homemade and locally grown produce right on my doorstep. I believe in supporting independent traders and much prefer the quality products they have to offer.  View Post

Sweet Potato Curry Turtle Bay

After popping along to the Turtle Bay taster evening before it opened its doors in Middlesbrough a couple of months ago, I was invited back down to the lively Caribbean restaurant to try the new summer menu. With plenty of rum-infused cocktails, mouthwatering jerk dishes and interesting combinations (curry goat anyone?), I couldn’t wait to tuck in.   View Post

Bacon sandwich at the alchemist newcastle

The Alchemist, one of my favourite cocktail bars of all time, is one of the newest additions to Newcastle’s Greys Quarter in Eldon Square. The new bar has understandably received a warm welcome since its opening earlier this year offering cocktails to replicate the sort of things you would see in a science lab and low lighting to create rustic ambience. Something you might not know about The Alchemist is that it is also a restaurant, serving up a cracking menu including a delectable breakfast. View Post

Cheese and Onion Waffle The Clubhouse Rockliffe Hall

Blog posts are few and far between at the moment and I apologise for that. I’ve been doing so much lately that I never actually have time to sit down at my laptop and tell you about all of the amazing things I’ve been up to! Today I’m telling you about my recent visit to Rockliffe Hall* in Hurworth, which is best known for being the home to the North East’s longest world-class golf course and its tranquil spa with impressive surroundings. Me and Adam were invited along to taste the new summer menu at The Clubhouse situated by the golf course. View Post

Turtle Bay Jerk Nibbles

Hello guys! I’m sorry for my lack of presence on the blog lately but life has taken over and I’ve been enjoying a short break away from it all. Today I’m getting back into the groove of things by sharing a review of an amazing new restaurant coming to Middlesbrough. For me, 2017 is all about trying new things, as you will know from my first encounter with Octopus last month. This week I had the pleasure of attending the VIP launch night of Turtle Bay on Corporation Road in Middlesbrough. A vibrant Caribbean restaurant boasting sensational flavours from their famous jerk chicken and steamed goat curry to their lethal cocktails. Caribbean food is something I’ve never delved into so this event was something I was really looking forward to.  View Post
