Arlo Bistro Cafe, Jesmond

Arlo Bistro cafe in Jesmond is a must if you live in Newcastle, love quirky and eclectic interior design and fresh, creative tasty menus. The super nice owners Susan and Lucas were portrait clients of mine a few years ago and came back to me with a well received request to capture atmospheric shots of their amazing new family run Bistro Cafe.

The interior design was completely up my street as you can see from my interiors page, I even spotted a few things on display I have in my own home, so it was really a creative treat to photograph! The sun shone for the outside regulars and the chefs were non stop! This is a busy, buzzy, friendly place that I would really recommend.

I am heading back this week to capture the gorgeous staff and some twinkly night time shots too, so look out for these and yummy food photography coming too! For more information on Arlo opening times, offers and menus please follow the link

Aiden Byrne’s Church Green, Cheshire

Nestled in Lymm, a gorgeous little village in Cheshire there is a fantastic award winning AA Restaurant of the Year Heineken pub which boasts the fantastic menus created by Aiden Byrne. You may have been watching The Great British Menu series on BBC2 recently and this week it has seen competing chef Aiden making it though to the Comic Relief finals. For more information on the programme here is a link to the Radio Times:–series-8—45-thebanquet

These shots were taken for a Heineken article highlighting this particular pub and the success of Aiden and his lovely wife Sarah as the lessees. They have won countless awards for the food at the Church Green and now Aiden has gone on to open a new restaurant in Manchester that will be televised on the BBC later this year. Here are few from the shoot;

The Northumberland Arms, Newcastle City

The Northumberland Arms recently asked me to capture imagery for a future advertising campaign. As Eldon Square is on the cusp of a refurbishment to help draw larger numbers of shoppers off Northumberland Street and into the shopping centre, it’s going to have a big effect on the local cosy pub thats situated underground. Whist the maintenance is underway my images will be used to inform shoppers the Northumberland Arms is still open for business.

Below I’ve selected a few photographs that I feel reflect the warm interior, friendly staff and their fantastic locally sourced & hearty food offering. Next time you’re in town get down there and treat yourself to a refreshing beverage and some home cooked treats!

Although The Northumberland Arms don’t as yet have a private website set up they are still featured on a few different online review sites, such as View Newcastle.
