As someone who is used to eating out a lot, it’s safe to say I’m REALLY missing it during lockdown. Luckily some places that I love near me are still open for business (House of Zen I’m looking at you), as are places that I’ve yet to try like Kogarashi.
I don’t know about you but I can be so stuck in my ways when it comes to eating out. I’m so indecisive that I find myself just going back to the same places for easiness unless someone else has organised the outing!
One thing I love about blogging though is that I’m lucky enough to be given the opportunity to eat at restaurants I possibly wouldn’t usually go to or know about, and it’s helping me get better at trying new places.
My most recent jaunt was to Beamish after being invited along to try food at the wonderful Stables Bar and Restaurant.
Back in July, Adam and I were invited along to the opening night of Cosy Club in Durham. The bar and restaurant has opened in the city as part of the new Riverwalk development and is the first branch to open in the North East! I visited Cosy Club in Liverpool last year with my friend Vic and we had a wonderful afternoon drinking cocktails, sharing a platter and playing Scrabble, so I was really excited to have one opening just up the road and to have been invited along!
