The The Broad Chare in Newcastle is again offering an Oktoberfest menu from 29 to 5 October. I have booked a table for 14 for next week Thursday (2nd October) from 7pm (meet in the bar from 6.30pm). If you would like to join us, let me know. If we have more guests, we’ll get another table. Please let me know if you’re coming as soon as you know.
If you are travelling a little further south, you may also want to pop into the Buck Inn in Chop Gate for a bit of ‘Buergerliche Kueche’. You’ll find the Buck Inn near Stokesley in North Yorkshire, ideal for cycling or walking and if you bring along your four legged friends, they’re also welcome.
The Kaffeehaus Amadeus in Lanchester has also expanded, with the upstairs Constanze Suite opening recently. A Kaffeehausmusik Series will launch soon on Sunday, 5 October. Click here for the new website, which offers more information on forthcoming events, etc.
Now that the new term has started, maybe you fancy learning a new language? Since the closure of the language courses at the University of Lifelong Learning, two companies have spun off that offer courses in popular languages. Check out Blah Blah Blah and The Language Centre for their new timetables.
I recently read online that there’s a new film out in German – ‘Die Biene Maja‘ – this may mean absolutely nothing to our British Stammtisch friends, but I’m sure many of you will remember the programme from your childhood. And as it’s about bees, I thought I send you a few links to local honeymakers: there’s the Chainbridge Honey Farm in Berwick, which also features a visitor centre, Richmond’s Honey B Company, Honey Store in Ponteland or Tynemouth Honey -> check out stockists such as the Deli around the Corner in Tynemouth or Country Whey in Jesmond.
I look forward to seeing you next week!
