A couple of weeks ago my friend and I headed to the Woodmans Arms for a catch up over some food on a Saturday night. Situated just out of Whickham, the site had been a pub owned by a chain for many years until it was taken over and transformed into the Woodmans Arms last … Continue reading The Woodmans Arms, Whickham

On the Saturday night we visited Scran, a restaurant which is part of the Yorkshire Hotel but unlike any hotel restaurant I'd visited before.
