Recommend me a good restaurant in Newcastle


Recommended Posts

Anyone of our Sweaty contingent familiar with Edinburgh?

Going up next month with Mrs.F. to celebrate not dying before 50, and looking for somewhere quality serving classic haute cuisine style-( i.e. I want to eat my food off a plate, not some ”pea foam infused with depression” that’s been piped in to a stuffed raccoon’s anus). 

Bonus points if I can eat some locally killed deer/seafood/cow.

Tom Kitchens place in leith is class, also has a pub style place in town called castle terrace which is a bit more laid back

Cheers Strawb, looked at his place and The Castle Terrace. 

I know Leith isn’t far, but I’d prefer somewhere within staggering of our hotel on Charlotte Square, so I might try the Castle Terrace. 

Also looking at a place called 21212, which looks great but has potential for pea foam embuggarances… it’s just such a 1st world problem :D

You're in the wrong thread.

 

Anyway, my recommendation is the maison bleue which is about as central as you can get. Best dead Bambi I've ever had. Mind, this was more than 5 years ago.

Think I've been to the castle terrace and didn't like it, it was much less casual and relaxed.

 

Congratulations on hopefully not dying before your half century BTW. :nufc:

Need a good coffee shop to recommend. Preferably not a Costa/Starbucks. The closer to Grey St Hotel the better. 

Also some mates are heading up for the Bournemouth game and asked for pub/bar advice.

Suggested the Forth/Town Wall, Tilleys before the match then Fat Hippo for food and Alvinos for drinks after. Are they all still good or have I given my mates a bum steer?

I still like Alvinos so that should carry all the weight you need
