Blackfriars Restaurant, dating back to 1239, is the oldest public dining room in Britain. With the main restaurant originally built to house the refectory for the Dominican Black Friars, and as a working inner-city former monastery, it's unique, certainly Newcastle has nowhere of its ilk elsewhere there. Blackfriars, with its horseshoe of buildings, also houses a number of craft shops, shelters a medieval courtyard used for al fresco dining in the summer, and is time-enduring, for long one of the city's most recognised restaurants and regarded as a Newcastle icon.

As well as the award of 'Best restaurant in the North East/Newcastle' by readers of The Observer, Metro Newspaper, and Hi-Life Dining Club, Blackfriars has also gained an AA Rosette, and inclusion in the Which Good Food Guide, Hardens and Michelin Guides.

The main candle-lit dining room holds up to 70 covers and lends itself to both intimate and romantic dining, with small inglenooks and hideaway corners, and was voted the 6th most romantic restaurant in the UK. It also serves well for larger dining parties with the dining room split into two levels.

Sourcing seasonal produce from local farms and markets, the award-winning team produces gutsy traditional-British menus including an à la carte, a well-priced set menu, a canapés and buffet menu, accompanied by a large award-winning wine list. The restaurant is served by friendly and professional waiting staff.

Blackfriars is so passionate about local produce that diners only have to glance down at the place mats to glimpse a map of the north east, showing exactly which farm each component of their meal comes from - an original and well-liked feature.

Typical starters might include potted Northumbrian beef with onion jam, rye sourdough and home-made brown sauce; hot smoked Scottish salmon, pea purée and salad of edible flowers, or North Sea scallops with langoustine soup, wilted lettuce and crispy bacon. Main courses also use local, seasonal produce, with rolled Durham belly pork with crackling, duck fat potatoes, girolles and lumbard mustard; risotto of home-smoked North Sea haddock, cockles and bacon and pea spume, or a Hadrian Heritage rib-eye steak, bone marrow butter, roast tomatoes and hand-cut chips. To round off a memorable meal try their Duke Humphrey of Gloucester's custard tart with orange ice cream, or their ever-popular plate of North of England cheeses, celery, grapes, water biscuits and chutney.

The splendour of Blackfriar's ornate medieval Banquet Hall has recently been brought back to life following a year of painstaking and meticulous research and restoration. The celebrated venue, that King Edward III used for receiving royal Scot, Edward Balliol, in 1334, boasts authentic and bespoke banners, chandeliers, wall coverings, stained-glass windows, reclaimed wooden screens, large oak communal dining tables and matching chairs, all created by local craftsmen.

It makes ample provision for their famous Medieval Banquets where suckling pig with all the trimmings, personally introduced by the Chef, is served with honey roast vegetables, complemented by fine wines or strong Benedictine ale, served by buxom wenches and 'monks' at a 30 foot oak table. The hall, which also has its own kitchens, bar and toilet, accommodates 50 guests on large communal tables and is the perfect venue for corporate events, networking groups, functions, wine tastings, educational visits, private parties, anniversaries and weddings.

Although the main restaurant offers a full à la carte service, dining in the communal Banquet Hall and Old Dormitory Rooms lends itself to bespoke menus and full advanced pre-orders.

Whilst quality cuisine and good design features play a significant part in the success of a restaurant such as Blackfriars, this is not to overlook the cellar and wine list, regarded as one of the best to be found in Newcastle. Excellent French wine from Georges Dubeouf starts at £15 or £4 a glass, with over ten more wines by the glass. Carafes remain popular whilst further down the list keep an eye for the Chapel Hill's Shiraz/Grenache, McLaren Vale, a super-heavyweight at a very reasonable £26. Blackfriars also stocks the largest range of bottled local beers and Scottish whiskies in Newcastle.

'Blackfriars' offers working one-course lunch for busy executives with complimentary wi-fi and other business stationary. Choose from a selection of tasty lunch dishes that include North Sea fishcakes, wilted spinach and parsley sauce, Northumberland corned-beef panacalty with seasonal vegetables, roast butternut and sage risotto or roast chicken salad with roast squash, broccoli, shoots and seeds. Book in advance and use the meeting room for free for a minimum of 6 people.

Newcastle has changed, in some places almost beyond recognition, and it is not just the physical aspects of this vibrant city. Down on the riverfront within easy reach of the millennium bridge, Tate of the North, the Sage Music Centre and Baltic Mills contemporary Arts Centre is another major conversion, the award-winning Malmaison. This one-time cooperative warehouse was formerly a storage facility for grain and cotton from the bustling river trade of the Tyne.

The Malmaison group of hotels has established throughout Britain a collection of centres of excellence where nothing but the best will do. As a concept alone this is exciting, but the reality is brilliant, so that at last there is a hotel group where uniformity of standards is of the same high calibre.

Their 122 bedrooms, which include 14 lavish suites, are exactly what one would expect from a hotel that has genuine regard for its guests and is concerned with every aspect of their wellbeing. Most of them have fantastic views of the River Tyne and the spacious suites on the Chateau floor have personal lounges and little touches like wine and nibbles. The Ark Royal suite, named after the famous WW2 aircraft carrier, exemplifies sheer indulgence with twin baths and two flat screen TVs.

At the hotel's heart is a lively brasserie with strong French influences at play and a widely spread menu that delivers something for everybody. This brasserie is striking and moody with innovative designs and the use of bold colours and decadent fabrics - seductive and alluring rich leather banquettes and chairs are both comfortable and indulgent, while the solid wood table tops and leather place settings are positioned within discreet bays.

Hand tailored paint work of gold and purple curve theatrically toward the candle lit stairway, the top steps of which lead through a heavy velvet drape of rich crimson and once beyond that you enter the intimate and inviting atmosphere, which is the Brasserie. Amidst these elegant surroundings, with spotless gleaming glassware and shining cutlery, an essentially, but not exclusively, brasserie menu is offered by Head Chef Drew Heron and his team.

Lovers of seafood will be delighted to note that their particular needs are well heeded, starting with a delightful halibut with herb crust and creamed leeks or papillotes of sole salmon. Brasserie dishes such as monkfish with chorizo and butter beans rarely fails to please, and a terrine of pheasant is topped with a wild mushroom dressing.

An inspired choice is the chicken Kiev, with roast loin of venison for those seeking by this time a slightly more carnivorous approach. Which leads us neatly to the - wait for it - Mal burger, a 250 gram burger made from ground beef tucked into a floured bap to join bacon and Gruyère, served with homemade relish and some fries.

Over the years the number of outriders surrounding a good honest steak on the plate has grown to unacceptable dimensions. At Malmaison the thought and care is centred on the dry-aged on-the-bone rump and that's it - except for the chips. If you want all the rest go for the side dishes, but steak and real chips on its own takes some beating. Vegetarians are well looked after - the pumpkin and gorgonzola filled gnocchi sounds appealing.

Heading the puddings is the sticky toffee pudding with butterscotch sauce, a triumph of timing and co-ordination, supported by other choices amongst which expect to find a citrus pannacotta, spicy berry compote or splendid chocolate financiers with Clementine sorbet.

The wine list is a symphony of its kind, clearly compiled by an enthusiast who knows his wines well enough not to disappear into a world of hyperbole when describing them.

Their Website is a wealth of information that will, I predict, only serve to increase your resolve to make Malmaison your next stop in Newcastle. It is worth noting that you can also make reservations Online on their Website.

Number 21 Queen Street, Newcastle has been home to some pretty exciting culinary experiences over the last few years, but longevity has tended not to be amongst their qualities.

Number 21 Queen Street, Newcastle has been home to some pretty exciting culinary experiences over the last few years, but longevity has tended not to be amongst their qualities. However, those with a taste for a bet on the side might well be considering that Pan Haggerty is all set to reverse this trend.

What is so special about this restaurant in the burgeoning Newcastle eating out experience? A catering business professional once said 'there are only so many permutations to what you can do with a restaurant - the skill lies in picking the right ones'. One of the most basic of these is that you don't wish to emerge from having a meal, particularly if it has left your wallet with hunger pangs, suffering from those same pangs yourself.

Not everybody wants 'a reet good blow-out' as the saying goes, but most of us want to feel adequately fed, which is where Pan Haggerty really ticks the box. After all it's named after a traditional Northumberland recipe for a good, robust no-nonsense dish of pan-fried layered potatoes and onions topped with cheese. Basic it may be, satisfying and well presented it most certainly is.

Head Chef Simon Wood, formerly of McCoy's at The Baltic and The Grainger Rooms, believes in offering dishes that bring pleasant memories of home cooking at the hands of your Mum, dishes such as braised pork belly, pan-fried duck breast and other British contributions to the well-being of mankind. Food is about enjoyment, not suffering misunderstood anguish about health and personal weight.

Grilled Seahouses kipper with herbed potato salad, lemon and shallot dressing lay the foundation for things to come. Soup nowadays has moved into the realms of the sublime, often, as here, using ingredients such as spiced crab and prawn dumpling to make an exceptionally tasty starter.

Black pudding enjoys a warm reception up north - and increasingly in the south let it be noted. Take Doreen's black pudding and then add a helping of crisp bacon, fried bread, apple compote and homemade brown sauce and what do you have? Total satisfaction and lots of happy customers.

Sit and enjoy beer battered fish and chips, secure in the knowledge that the sea from whence its ingredients came is only a few miles away, properly served with minted mushy peas and tartare sauce. Thoughts of Peach Melba with pistachio and chocolate biscotti could by this time be having a punch-up with the enterprising selection of cheeses gathered from both afar and close to home.

And just in case you're thinking all this is going to cost the earth, think again. For Sunday lunch you will be asked to part with £12.50 for two courses, £15 for three. For more details log on to their Website.

We hear a great deal about recycling these days -du Vin recycles attractive but sometimes un-loved buildings to restore real gems in the best tradition of British understated style.

Complement that with all that is best in the French bistro ethos, bars that reach out to please, and you have a setting that provides an inspirational background for people to meet, do business, get married, provide a base for golf or fishing, somewhere you can call your own for a private celebration, a spa or - most engagingly - a wine school that breaks the mould.

Think quintessential British style, elegant and unpretentious. Combine this with a great spirit, wit, and an unquestionable devotion to wine, and you have captured the essence of Hotel du Vin.

In Newcastle-on-Tyne du Vin has looked to the Merchant Navy for its location. Shipping Lines rarely used to stint on HQ's and The Tyne Tees Shipping Company long ago had built an impressive Head Office on the heart of Newcastle's historic quayside. Hotel du Vin have maximised this into one of the most luxurious and outstanding hotels in Newcastle.

The hotel has 42 stylish bedrooms and stunning suites. Every room has handsprung mattresses, fine Egyptian linen, deep baths, monsoon showers, plasma TVs, DVDs, air conditioning and high speed wireless internet access. Life's little pleasures are by no mean neglected so there's a cigar shack and a Laroche tasting room where you can take a bibulous journey round the world's finest vineyards with minimal effort, even if you miss out on the airmiles.

In the 2 AA Rosette bistro a choice of nine starters might include braised risotto primavera, smoked salmon, tuna carpaccio with horseradish, and chicken liver parfait and toasted brioche. Main courses pursue much the same line, with wild sea trout with braised peas, and lettuce, new season lamb with garlic, aubergine and samphire, and the shin of beef cooked with carrots, oyster mushrooms, tarragon,

Whilst one might argue that the whole point of being in a du Vin is to snuggle up to the wine list, this list is designed to march with the food and can only be described as superb. With a team who look after the bar and the cigars, there is no room for anything but the best. Service is telepathic in the best possible sense.

One of Newcastle's most popular Chinese restaurants, Mandarin operates on the banquet basis, starting at £10.80 for the happy hour banquet, and working up to the climax of the imperial at £32 each for a party of six or more.

Enter the restaurant and you are immediately conscious of the mini Chinatown atmosphere with red and gold as prominent colours, pleasantly shaded areas for those seeking an air of intimacy, and smartly dressed staff. Table settings are tastefully presented, and the restaurant is very handy for pre- or post-theatre suppers.

The Chef's banquet, at £25, starts with won ton soup prawn crackers, going on to two appetisers, prawn toast with ribs, and satay chicken skewers, and aromatic duck with pancakes and salad and chef's hoi sin sauce. For main course there are seven choices, including sizzling beef and black bean sauce, sweet and sour pork, or fish with ginger and spring onion. Seasonal fresh fruit provide a refreshing finish.

To those for whom nothing but the best will do there is only one answer, the Imperial banquet, starting with seafood soup and prawn crackers, followed by lobster with ginger and spring onion with seafood platter. Amongst the main courses look for the fillet steak Cantonese, kung bo prawn and cashew nuts, and Mandarin fried rice, before finishing with fresh fruit and liqueur coffee.

The subject of Chinese cuisine linked to wine has frequently been the cause of often heated debate, but here at Mandarin the approach is fairly uncompromising, indeed positive, in that it is assumed you accept food as much steeped in history as that served here, is well able to have a satisfactory liaison with decent wine. Sparklers start with Asti DOCG San Silvestro, going on to Moutard Grande Cuvée.

In the view of many, white wine is an especially good match with Chinese dishes, so think of a Pinot Grigio IGT Cielo e Terra, or a Tuatara Bay Sauvignon Blanc, both of which carry a dryness that seems to bring out the best in the often delicate flavours. Two house wines are listed, II Saporito Chardonnay Garganega and II Saporito Merlot Raboso.

Although Chinese menus tend to change less than European, it is always worth a click on their Website to see the latest listings, or if you are looking for an excellent location for a group or conference venue. Their private room seats up to forty people and is available for a variety of uses.

Should you feel an American moment coming on, get straight into the mood at a TGI Friday's. First thought of in New York in 1965, introduced to Birmingham, UK in 1986, they now, like so many other American concepts, are to be found on a global basis and have 48 outlets in the UK alone. Learn more

Should you feel an American moment coming on, get straight into the mood at a TGI Friday's. First thought of in New York in 1965, introduced to Birmingham, UK in 1986, they now, like so many other American concepts, are to be found on a global basis and have 48 outlets in the UK alone. According to Newsweek and The Saturday Evening Post, the opening of the first Friday's restaurant heralded the dawn of the singles age.

In many ways, TGIs are more representative of the American approach to eating out than some of their imitators. Their food is fresh, the portions generous and the cocktail list exhaustive. They also tend to represent the all-American classlessness that can produce a meal at any time, for any social group, for any reason, under the same roof, without a problem.

So what's on offer? The quick answer is, it depends rather on where you are, as menus do vary from one restaurant to another, but the essential message stays the same - American grub, fella! Appetizers - no starters please - could include Jack Daniel's wings, chicken wings coated in Jack Daniel's sweet 'n' smoky glaze, or spinach and artichoke hearts coated in a rich and creamy cheese sauce, served with crisp corn tortillas.

For a group assault try the Times Square big share, more of Jack Daniel's wings, cheese and bacon skins to the very brim, with crispy breaded mozzarella dippers and served with a battery of accoutrements.

The steaks are awesome, topping out with a 12oz rib eye. A range of burgers, ribs, chicken, fish, sandwiches, fajitas, salads and pasta embraces virtually every known twist in the repertoire of American cuisine. Chocolate fudge fixation perhaps sums up best, but by no means exclusively, the TGI approach to desserts.

From a list of over 500 cocktails, all mixed with exuberant charm, let's take just one. You thought Long Island Iced Tea was something polite Americans sipped after some gentle sailing? Think again. Vodka, gin, rum and orange liqueur, topped up with Coke, spin and pour. The popular drink was in fact, invented by TGIF. As with all cocktails you can choose between regular or ultimate, no questions asked. Beer, wine and soft drinks cover enormous range and they also offer good coffee.

It is not important which outlet of TGIF you visit, for if you enjoy the American style of eating, just look out for red and white stripes and you are likely to be happy.

Strada describes itself as 'a group of stylish, contemporary Italian restaurants, serving good quality, simple and freshly prepared dishes'. The statement sums up what this group of around seventy restaurants offers to people looking for good Italian food. The first outlet opened in Battersea in 1999 and their clientele has been increasing steadily ever since.

Though Strada has grown into a fair sized group, each outlet retains the feel of being a local neighbourhood Italian restaurant. The menu includes pastas, risottos, salads, and fish dishes, but they are best known for their quality pizzas.

They present authentic Italian dishes in contemporary surroundings and aim to use only the freshest and finest ingredients, such as Luganica sausages, Parma ham and buffalo mozzarella, imported from Italy to provide exactly the kind of rustic, traditional dishes one would expect to find travelling around its regions.

A meal could kick off with zuppa vongole e fregola, a traditional clam soup with Sardinian fregola pasta grains, wine, chilli and parsley, served with bread, or the delicious sautéed king prawns with garlic, white wine, chilli, and lemon butter served with your choice of bread.

Move on to their creamy risotto verdure, freshly grilled asparagus, broad beans, peas, spring onions, zucchini, green beans, white wine and mint, finished with baby spinach leaves. Or you could opt for the healthier, tagliolini nero granchio, black cuttlefish ink pasta with crab, courgette, red and yellow peppers, spring onion, and a hint of chilli and parsley. A real treat for the taste buds comes in the form of the bistecca manzo, a 10oz rosemary-marinated char-grilled, rib-eye steak with fries and fresh rocket.

A range of pizzas, all spun by hand, is an integral feature of each restaurant. They include the rossa, with spicy southern Italian salami, roasted red peppers, chilli, caramelised onion, garlic, fresh oregano, tomato and mozzarella. Nor are vegetarians are overlooked, and can be found tucking into dishes such as fiorentina, made of spinach cooked with garlic, nutmeg and black pepper with mozzarella, parmesan, tomato and an egg.

For those wanting to satisfy their sweet tooth, there is torroncino affogato, an iced nougat semi freddo with a shot of espresso to pour over, or a classic Italian tiramisu and, as you might expect coffee to round off the meal.

A wine list consisting of purely regional Italian wines, beers and liqueurs, all carefully chosen to complement the menu comes as no surprise and in addition, every table receives a complimentary bottle of purified water.

For further details including their latest news, menus and deals, and to find a Strada nearest to you, their Website certainly warrants a visit.

With quality food, friendly staff, quick service and excellent value for money, Nando's is a great place to eat. Don't expect identikit, pre-fab restaurant interiors which are usually a staple of the larger chains; each restaurant is tailored to its local surroundings and customers, offering up a unique restaurant experience to go with the equally unique taste of legendary, Portuguese, Peri-Peri chicken.

Your peri-peri chicken, when the chips are down so to speak, is a fresh A grade chicken that has never seen the inside of a freezer, but having made the supreme sacrifice is butterfly-cut, marinated for 24 hours in a secret brew called - you've guessed - peri-peri, and is then cooked to your choice over an open flame.

There are, of course, many variations on this broad theme, numerous plays on words such as Nando's experi-perience, peri-peri good reasons why you should eat at a Nando's' and all one hopes is that for their sake chicken never goes out of fashion. New Nando's are opening all the time, peri-peri quickly in fact, the spicy bastes become hotter and more daring, and the full platter offers a whole chicken, large chips or spicy rice and Nando's salad or coleslaw.

Since chickens are vegetarian it seems logical you can order veggie or bean burgers and patties, and still feel the heat from the peppers. All in all, Nando's is hotly recommended for those occasions when you have a large following of permanently hungry children, or adults even, to keep happy - the only thing taken really seriously is the quality of those peri-peri good chickens.

Nando's is a place for bright people who love to laugh and love to eat, and is guaranteed to spice up your taste buds. Their fun approach to life means that when you visit Nando's you can fully relax without the airs and graces associated with more starchy dining out.
