Sunderland Restaurant Week 8th – 16th September 2018

Over the past year or so, there have been a number of great new restaurants opening across Sunderland city centre and if you’re like me and still haven’t got round to trying a lot of them, then Restaurant Week is your perfect opportunity!

Organised by Sunderland BID, Sunderland Restaurant Week takes place from the 8th to the 16th September and sees over 30 restaurants and cafes take part, with dining deals on offer for as little as £5pp.

Cooking Up A (Pizza)Storm!

PizzaStorm is one of my favourite spots to visit in Newcastle for scran. Residing in Intu Eldon Square, the restaurant is super affordable (and fast!) with pizza’s starting from £6.55! You can choose one of their signature pizza’s from the menu, like Loaded Cheese Feast or Smokey BBQ Chicken, or you can create your own.

A Stay at Hotel Indigo, Durham

Set in the former university offices at Old Shire Hall, Hotel Indigo Durham has recently opened following a £15 million transformation. I was lucky enough to be invited along to check out the hotel, and was overwhelmed by just how wonderful it is!

The stunning red brick building is ideally situated on Old Elvet, which makes it the perfect base to explore the city centre. It is also the home to Tinderbox Espresso Bar, Marco Pierre White Steakhouse Bar and Grill and the Rotunda Bar – which I’ll get onto later.

Tapas Revolution Bar – Newcastle

I’ve heard so many good things about Tapas Revolution, so when I was invited along to the launch of their new bar I was super excited!

Friday 8th December saw the opening of the new lounge on Blackett Street, which is inspired by the lively bars of Spain, and it was like Christmas came early! It features an extensive new Sangria menu, which is full of innovative and exciting fruity combos.
