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

Tapas Revolution Bar Eldon Square

Last week I was invited along to an exclusive event at Tapas Revolution* in Eldon Square, Newcastle, for a pairing dinner hosted by Spanish celebrity chef, Omar Allibhoy. Celebrating the opening of his seventh restaurant in the UK, Omar is the mastermind behind the Spanish restaurant chain and is passionate about bringing a real taste of Spain to the UK. Although classed as a chain restaurant, Tapas Revolution is unlike other restaurants that have other branches scattered around the country. Omar prides his business on using the finest Spanish ingredients, there’s no ordering from catalogues each week. It’s all about fresh produce which he orders from his contacts directly from Spain itself and it doesn’t get more authentic than that.  View Post

Little Doves KU Bar

I’ve been really enjoying checking out local bands recently, as you’ll know from my post about Two Blue Band the other week. Last weekend I went to watch another one of my friend’s boyfriend’s bands play at KU Bar in Stockton. Little Doves is a new band on the block made up of four talented musicians – Dan, Luke, Jonny and Ian. With a combination of guitars, drums and vocals, the band channels an indie/rock and roll sound that makes you want to sing and dance along with them.  View Post

Blowout Ibiza Takeover Glam Squad Express

Ibiza has arrived in Newcastle and it’s making these miserable winter days a little more bareable. Last Sunday I was invited along to an exciting event in Jesmond, Newcastle to be pampered by the talented team at Glam Squad Express. BLOWOUT Ibiza has taken over the boutique salon to offer a pampering experience like no other. From the hottest DJ’s and artists to the most influential models and celebrities, BLOWOUT Ibiza has been pampering party people for the past three years and now it’s time to do the same for the people of the North East.
