A Sunny Day at Bishop Auckland Food Festival | Bishop Auckland

Scream for Pizza

On the 21st of this month Adam and I went to the Bishop Auckland Food Festival for the second year running in hope to see our favourite pizza van as well as sample food from other local traders. We were praying for the freakish warm weather we’ve been having to stick around for us as we all know the sun makes a day out 100% better! The Bishop Auckland Food Festival is such a fun annual event especially if you’re a foodie like me so I thought I’d share my day with you from how we travelled there from Middlesbrough, what we ate and what we bought to take home with us.

Dinner for Two: The Clubhouse at Rockliffe Hall, Hurworth

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
