I kicked off my pledge to go plant-based with a visit to Newcastle’s only fully-vegan pub, The Ship Inn. Located opposite Ouseburn Farm, The Ship Inn seems like any other trendy pub. Branding itself as a ‘superfood pub’, this place serves exclusively vegan food – but without the label. To me, this is pretty cool as sometimes the label ‘vegan’ can turn people off or make people think of bland, tasteless food – The Ship Inn is anything but!
Last weekend, we headed to Edinburgh to see Ben Howard at the Usher Hall. We decided to take this opportunity to say a couple of nights and explore to city during the festive period. Rather than thoroughly researching bars and restaurants and making a few reservations, like any sane person would, we decided to leave it all up to chance. We stumbled into a few interesting places over the weekend, and here are our highlights:
Pet Lamb is quite possibly the most addictive, enchanting and winsome sweet treat vendor I have ever laid my lips on. Purveyors of all things sweet (and sometimes salty), the Pet Lamb girls are running Newcastle’s best kept secret from within the walls of our beloved Grainger Market.
