Although you love to travel, you’re also a massive advocate for the North East, so here are some quick-fire questions. During the lockdown what has been your favourite:
Takeaway meal? I couldn’t pick between three: From the coast, Allards on the Quay and Lobo Rojo. And from Newcastle, Blackfriars was excellent and so reasonable.
Takeaway drink? I really enjoyed a takeaway coffee and cake from Kiln in Ouseburn.
Sweet treat? The French Oven brownies were my favourite, which I bought as part of a Grainger Market delivery.
Walk? I’ve loved the promenade and beach at Whitley Bay, and a bit further afield when we could drive to places again – I did Craster to Dunstanburgh Castle which I really enjoyed.
Day? During the proper lockdown, it was a Saturday where we held our own bottomless brunch in the house whilst on Facetime with our friends. It was inspired by Jam Jar in Jesmond and was a lot of fun. However, once restrictions eased a bit, I’ve really enjoyed seeing friends and family again in the garden or on the beach.
