Regardless of what time of day you live your life, it isn’t half getting darker.
However, autumn is a season for looking forward and there’s an awful lot to be confident about – and that can be found in our pubs.
Confidence and enterprise topped with a heady layer of positivity and customer satisfaction are whatchanging seasons are about.
We’re fortunate in this part of the world to have a region full of great pubs that range from coastal idylls like the Ship Inn at Low Newton-by-the-Sea and the King’s Arms in Seaton Sluice in Northumberland plus Poetic License in Sunderland, to the country comforts of The Rat Inn, Anick, Northumberland, and the Black Bull at Frosterley in County Durham.
And what a set of town-centre pubs to be proud of – Hop & Cleaver in Newcastle, the Dun Cow in Sunderland, and the Victoria in Durham to name three that come immediately to mind. Oh, we are spoiled.
Cheers North East celebrates the pub and all it stands for; its fine home-grown beer, its burgeoning menus and its social interaction, so let’s support what we’ve got in spades – and not retreat to our living rooms away from this season’s shortening days.
And as usual, we have a cracking issue for you this month. See you in the pub!
