Restaurant | "The Badger Country Pub"

Quote:
My partner fancied trying The Badger country pub as it had been recommended to him by friends. We have drove by it many times, and it may be familiar to anyone who has been to Newcastle Airport, but we had never been inside, and so decided to give it a try.Situated just half a mile from the airport, on Street Houses road, Ponteland, The Badger Country Pub, which is part of the Vintage Inns chain, looks quite large and welcoming from the outside.Built in the 1700's, The Badger was at first a gentleman's residence, which was later split into three houses occupied by various farmers, until it became The Badger Country Pub.We parked the car in the large car park and went insi...Read More

Premier Inn Newcastle City Centre (Millennium Bridge)

Hotel | "A decent budget hotel"

Quote:
I was recently attending a concert in Newcastle with my partner and although we live not that far away from the centre of Newcastle, it still meant we would incur travelling costs there and back. The journey home would have to be via taxi due to the fact we had agreed to meet up with friends for a drink after the concert, which is also why we were leaving the car at home.So when I spotted Premier Inn offering hotel rooms at £29 per night, I decided to take a look and see if they had any available in Newcastle city centre. I thought at that price we could make a proper night of it and not have to worry about getting a taxi home and it also meant we didn't have to use public transport to get...Read More

Attending a concert in the centre of Newcastle recently with friends, is what led us to us booking rooms at the Newcastle Central Travelodge. Although I live in the area, some friends were travelling from other parts of the country and therefore needed to stay overnight, so I decided that I also would book a room for myself and partner and make a night of it.At the time of booking there was a Travelodge sale on the website with rooms available at their hotels from just £10 per night and we managed to secure a number of rooms at just £12 per night. At this price, it was cheaper for myself and partner personally to stay over than pay for a taxi home and my friends were also delighted to secure roo...Read More

Hotel | "Premier Inn, Holystone"

Premier Inn Holystone in Newcastle is somewhere I have passed frequently as I only live a few miles away from it and therefore I have never had a need to stay there. However, whilst planning a recent evening out which involved a meal at the adjoining restaurant 'The Stonebrook', I discovered that it would only be £19 to book a room at this Premier Inn that evening, which worked out cheaper than travelling home via taxi and so we decided to book a room and make an evening of it.~~ Premier Inn Holystone ~~The hotel is situated a few miles out of the centre of Newcastle on the outskirts of the city. It lies very close to the A19 and Tyne Tunnel and the seaside town of Whitley Bay ...Read More

Although I had previously visited The Stonebrook a couple of times in recent years, I had not visited since it was refurbished and became part of the Table Table chain.So when a family meal was organised at The Stonebrook recently, I was looking forward to my visit and also this was going to be my first visit to a Table Table restaurant.The StoneBrook sits adjacent to the Premier Inn at Holystone, Newcastle which is on the outskirts of the city in North Tyneside and also within easy reach of Whitley Bay. The Tyne Tunnel and A19 run nearby, making this easily accessible by car as well as by public transport with bus links and a couple of Metro stations within easy reach.Although...Read More
