newcastle fings to do

pls give me ideas for a weekend in the Toon

so far I have the Jesmond Dene petting zoo

the no coat thing is to avoid the faff with a coatroom check

I have never understood why southerners find this bemusing

centre for life sposed to be alright and right by station

house of tides good for dinner

is the fossilised tree still in the foyer of the hancock museum? Haven’t been for 30yrs

go and hang out on the uni campus (right in the centre) for coffee and some dark academia people watching

also like chimp’s suggestion re getting out to the coast - good fish and chips

have u ever dined at Long Friday?
 

no actually though I’ve been to the place next door a few times

is the fossilised tree still in the foyer of the hancock museum?
 

good q, haven’t been for a while myself and I can’t remember tbh

House of Tides is very good but depends if you’re alone or not - long tasting menu, might be a bit much to do on your own

Long Friday is really good - if you like the whole small plates thing. Otherwise try Cookhouse down in Ouseburn which is the same woman (Anna Hedworth)

I think the place next to Long Friday (Bistro 46) has closed

Peace & Loaf also good for a tasting menu if you are in Jesmond

Northern Rye in Ouseburn for the best baked goods

Not House of Tides - too much fannying about with the tasting menu. Trakol on the Gateshead side is a good shout and you get a view of the Toon. For a curry go Sachins. Stowell Street is great for Chinese food and there is the odd Korean and Japanese restaurant.

For a pub crawl wander over to Ouseburn for the Free Trade, the Tyne Bar and the Cumberland Arms

Is the no coat thing up North and in Scotland a class thing or are the middle classes equally like to freeze their nuts off?
