North East Associates
mid-year Pub Lunches

- July - August - September - October -



Twenty-four Associates made the trip to The Border Minstrel next to the racecourse in High Gosforth Park.  The Shipyard Ale was OK but the food service was slow.  However the food, when it appeared was very good, with Fish & Chips the popular choice.



The Ridley Arms at Stannington was the venue for the August lunch.  Thirty-one turned up and tried the beers of Timothy Taylor Bolt Maker and Tyneside Blonde – both very nice.

The food standard at this Sir John Fitzgerald pub was excellent with Fish & Chips, Sausage & Mash, Thai Chicken Green Curry and Salmon Fishcakes all excellent.



The Swan at Choppington always provides good food and service.  Twenty-two sampled the food and beers.
It was a lovely day and we were allocated the conservatory for our get-together.  Most went for the Mince & Dumplings off the lunchtime menu - excellent value as part of the two courses for £9.95.

The steak was also well received, and the desserts were lovely too with ‘Swan Meringue’ getting the best plaudits.



The Duke of Wellington at Newton near Corbridge was the venue for this month’s lunch.  Twenty enjoyed their meals which were served quickly.  The weather was fine too, which made driving on the narrow roads to reach the pub relatively easy.

The Gregorys as usual arrived about 12:30 by which time several had finished their meal.

Traditional pub lunches like Steak Pie, Fish 'n' Chips and Scampi were popular.

From the specials board Fried Sea Bass, Lambs' Liver and Gammon & Pineapple with a Duck-egg appeared on many plates.  All were favourably received.
