Miller and Carter Steakhouse in Newcastle

Miller and Carter Steakhouse Newcastle Oct 17 14

I visited Miller and Carter Steakhouse in Newcastle last week with a group of friends. Good service and a first class meal, though not cheap. Despite being a a steakhouse, it also caters for vegetarians. Well worth a visit.

Harry Clasper in Whickham

Harry Clasper Whickham Oct 2017 (1)

The Harry Clasper is Wetherspoon's relatively recent addition to the crop of pubs in Whickham. I called there last Friday for a cheap lunch. Prices here are very competitive and I made the mistake of thinking the portions would be small. They weren't! I ordered a "small" plate of tortilla chips and to make up for the fact it was "small", I ordered a plate of potato chips. The small plate would have been sufficient.

Yak and Yeti in Crystal Palace

Yak and Yeti Crystal Palace Sept 17

Back in London in September and I needed an evening meal. The Yak and Yeti in Crystal Palace is usually quiet so getting a table was not a problem. The food is always good and competitively priced.

Valentino Italian Restaurant, Bournemouth

Valentino Bournemouth Sept 17

I was part of a group of 30 people when I visited this restaurant on Exeter Road when I was in Bournemouth last month. The restaurant had no problem catering for us, despite the rest of it being packed. Good food and reasonably priced with friendly and amusing staff.

Cumberland Hotel, Bournemouth

Cumberland Hotel Bournemouth Sept 17 5

I spent 3 days in Bournemouth last month and booked myself into the Cumberland Hotel for 2 nights. I had a single room, comfortable enough but I found nothing especially interesting or outstanding in the hotel. It was an okay stay. The only grumble I had was that when I returned to the hotel on my first evening, I needed a meal, but I found room services to be very unhelpful when I phoned them. My second call was a bit more successful. I got a sandwich and bag of crisps for a mere £13. I should have gone out to a chippie instead but there was nothing around.

Burger at the Marquis of Granby

Marquis of Granby Sept 17 3

The Marquis of Granby near Streetgate is less than 2km from where I live. I've had lunch there abut 3 or 4 times this year. The most recent was last Saturday when I attended a Sunniside History Society event at the pub to launch a local history DVD.

I had a burger for lunch. Competitively priced and good quality food. Helpful staff as well.

I recently got round to editing the video I filmed at the Glendale Show in August, so here it is.
