    Is that a serious offer? If so is Taste the Difference ok (2 bottles plus cheese)?

    It's a serious suggestion. Don't get taste the difference, sainsbury merlot will do you just fine

    My experience of premier inn is that the staff will direct you to a decent pub if they're 100% sure you're not a Mystery Shopper.

    Ramada in Gateshead is alright. 15 minute walk to Quayeeside. There’s your usual travel lodge just up the road from there as well.

    Cool, leave the key under the mat. PM me address; I'll try not to wake you but I can't promise, I'll bring a sleeping bag. Can I shave in the downstairs sink?

    Pick any house and look under the mat for the key. Sooner or later you'll find one you can crash in. I live in London.

    London? That's remarkably selfish of you.


    The metropolitan mindset; me, me, me.... t'choh.

    There’s no decent pubs near that one (there’s only two and they both close at 11) :D

    Maybe try the County Hotel in the city centre or one of the Travelodges on the Quayside.

    If you go to a late bar you might not find auld lenny henry or even lenny murphy but I'm sure you'll find someone to share your bed

    Hey, thanks; booked. 24hr reception if I arrive late.


    Much appreciated.

    You're clearly a much better person than Pickman. Much better.

    I'm open to ideas about late bars though. Interview is only at 1000.

    You won’t find much going on near the Ramada, you’ll need to go into Newcastle. Plenty of places are open until 1, Head of Steam opposite the station is open until 2 I think. Geordie Shore type places are open until 3, but they’re awful :D

    not-bono-ever Not what they want but what is good for them

    bridge hotel on the other side of the high level bridge is a decent pub. Crown posada down the hill towards the quayside also.maybe the bacchus as well. do not go to the black garter under any circumstances unless you fancy a kicking and/ or scoring some retro diesel soaked hash from rather questionable charachters

    there are a few around there that a good pubs

    the bigg market is a mess now and full of shitty retro 70s pubs and EDL hangouts- avoid anywhere that doesnt have seats inside- seriously they exist - they are stag and hen power drinking establishments with sticky floors and shitty local DJ's playingh bastard black lace. cheap drinks though.

    Hmmm.... kind of.

    Ended up sharing some red, some white and some crappy lager from a supermarket run in a room down the corridor from me with some guys/girls from Estonia. And a Spaniard who wanted to discuss Gibraltar... hmmm... a thread on here about that i think...

    Bizarre night; interview wasn't until 1000 though so no drama.
