New Bond Street, Weymouth, Dorset DT4 8LY
This is a lovely pub right in the centre of town, hidden behind the main shopping street and right next door to Debenhams and the Cineworld cinema - so very convenient for a swift half while you’re out shopping (or if the wife is out shopping!) or before your film starts. This is a lovely cosy pub with a pleasant family atmosphere. It is child friendly, but this can mean that sometimes in the holiday season it can get packed out so that there is nowhere to sit. It has a nice outdoor seating area that is popular in summer, which is in a pedestrianised zone so it has nice clean sea air. A nice clean family pub.
15 Bigg Market, Newcastle upon tyne NE1 1UN
Typical Bigg Market fare this pub. Situation right on the main pub crawl route through the city centre, this pub is in the heart of the drinking district and is not in the most salubrious location. On a busy Friday or Saturday night, this joint, like all the others around it, will be packed out with drunk teenagers and lager louts, swearing and falling over. I know - I’ve done it myself! Located in a perilous area of cobblestone paving - beware if you’re wearing vertiginous heels! The pub itself is of the sticky floor variety, the toilets are best avoided and the drinks are quite pricey - however the do sometimes have promotions and a press the buzzer gimmick, where sometimes you can get a free or cheap drink. Often by the time you get here, you’re quite drunk anyway, and thats the best way to experience this pub! Close to the rest of the nightlife and close to the nightclubs of the Bigg Market.
14 St. Marys Place, Newcastle upon tyne NE1 7PG
This pub is well located in town, close to Haymarket metro station and bus interchange. It is also close to the Civic Centre car park for those non-drinkers who are the designated driver! The main selling point for this pub is that it is very convenient for the City Hall, so ideal if you are attending an event there, or at the Civic Centre. Wedding parties attending at the Civic Centre often pop in here for a pint before the service! As a bar it is fairly average, although it does have a pleasant outdoor seating area. As it is close to the University, it does have a fair bit of student trade and can get quite busy so it can be hard to find a seat. The outside area is better than the inside which can be a hit and miss. The toilets aren’t great, and often the tables aren’t particularly clean. It can also be quite dark inside.
176 High Street, Newcastle upon tyne NE3 1HD
This pub has a bit of a poor local reputation and although it has been renovated and cleaned up a lot in recent years it has never managed to quite shake the reputation off. It is located right on the High Street and so is in a great place for a pub crawl as there are a number of other bars in walking distance, however, that just makes it even more likely that you would choose somewhere else over this pub. It has a bit of a tacky atmosphere and drinks are fairly expensive. Outside there is a seating area which is nice in warmer weather, and is much nicer than sitting inside, however, you are right on the pavement, so during the day, you do have local shoppers staring at you. If I was drinking on the High Street, I would choose the Job Bulman, a few doors down which is much nicer in atmosphere and the prices are a lot cheaper.
Whitley Road, Newcastle upon tyne NE12 9SZ
My son went to a birthday party here and it was ok. What can I say?! A standard bowling alley on a small retail park. It has plenty of free parking, which is a bonus and is its main selling point. The alley itself is quite large and when we went it was fairly uncrowded, although I can imagine it gets quite crowded at peak periods. It has a rather shabby air and feels like it has seen better days. It could do with a good clean up, although its nothing too horrendous. The prices are about average for the area, although I would say that bowling as a hobby is overpriced anyway. They do have special offers during weekdays which are good value for money, but obviously no good for anyone with kids at school. They serve food, which is standard take away greasy chips and burgers, and there are a few slot machines and amusements to keep the kids occupied. Fairly average on the whole.
373 Benton Road, Newcastle upon tyne NE7 7EE
A very popular branch of the frozen food emporium! Conveniently located on Benton Road, close to the Four Lane Ends Metro Interchange, close to local bus services and within walking distance of the Fairways and Benton estates it also has a very small amount of parking in front of the shop, however it shares this with a number of other premises and there is very limited on street parking nearby due to parking restrictions. It is very much a local store, and useful for making top up purchases. Although the range is primarily frozen, it does sell some fresh items such as bread and milk. The shop is quite small but the aisles are wide enough to negotiate however on a busy day there can be quite a wait at the check out. The frozen food is in general good value and there is a good range of ready meals and cakes at lower prices. Ideal for catering for a buffet or dinner party!

A average branch of Greggs located very conveniently on Gosforth High Street. It has level flat access and so is convenient for those who have disabilities or those with pushchairs. The shop itself is quite small and can get quite busy at lunchtimes and busy periods. The shop itself has no parking, but there is on street parking nearby, which is very difficult to find during the day, and 2 car parks over the road, which often have spaces. It sells a good range of bakery products, excelling in their delicious cakes and biscuits. They also sell a range of sandwiches, which are often included in a meal deal with crisps and drinks - some of these are quite healthy, however Greggs do have a large number of unhealthy options such as sausage rolls and pasties which are delicious and are often on promotion.
Newcastle International Airpor Woolsington, Newcastle upon tyne NE13 8BZ
One of the few eating places that isn’t airside at Newcastle International Airport, Greggs is often quite busy. Situated near the check in desks at the front of the airport it is immediately obvious upon entering the building and has little competition in the way of other food providers before you check in, therefore it is one of the few places that those waiting for passengers can grab a bite to eat. It serves standard Greggs fare - pasties, cakes, sausage rolls and this branch also serves drinks. There is often a meal deal, which is good value, and sometimes there are promotions on pasties or sausage rolls. The food isnt exactly healthy, although there are healthier sandwich options. However, this outlet is a lot cheaper than the other food and beverage choice before check in, which is Costa coffee, and Greggs has the advantage that you can get hot food. Very accessible to those with disabilities and near toilets and seating areas.
65 Great North Road, Newcastle upon tyne NE3 2DQ
A very handy local off licence serving the local Gosforth community. Situated just off the Great North Road, it does have limited parking in front of the store, but it shares this with a number of other premises so it is sometimes difficult to find a space. There is plentiful on street parking around the corner however. This shop is mainly an off licence selling a range of alcohol as well as snacks - crisps, nuts and chocolate and a small range of other foods. Prices are about average, and it is a useful place to go to if dropping into the nearby fish and chip shop for a takeaway. For prices however, they cannot really compete with Asda, which is about 5 minutes walk away and have longer opening hours.
701 West Road, Newcastle upon tyne NE15 7QQ
This is a very useful branch of the Co Op serving the local community well. My grandmother lives near this branch and it is her local lifeline! It is well situation on the Denton Burn end of the West Road right next to a bus stop and a flyover to connect both sides of the road. It sells a good range of produce to enable a limited weekly shop. It is particularly good for top up shopping and is ideal for bread, milk and those little treats that you find you want to get in at the weekend! There is limited parking as the store itself has no car park and there is only limited on street parking in the local area.
