Triple A Food Tours

This food tour really is a tour like no other. You begin the day with a private tour of the 19th Century Victoria Tunnel previously a waggonway under the city, that leads to the River Tyne. After the tour, you will begin the food safari around the valley, sampling food and drinks from around the Ouseburn. Dining styles change up as you go, including a stop at a Michelin Guide restaurant so you will be sure to experience all that the area has to offer!

  • Day two details..

    Day two - "The Ouseburn Food Tour"! South Causey Inn will provide your transport to Newcastle where you will meet the group tour on Ouse Street for 12 pm. On the tour, you will visit all of the amazing restaurants listed below. Full-size alcoholic/non-alcoholic drinks will be included.

    After the tour, your complimentary transport to South Causey Inn will await you. Alternatively, you may decide to explore more of the city and organise your own way back. Breakfast can be enjoyed again in our Shafto Restaurant from 7:30 am until 10 am.

    • The Cookhouse Ouseburn

    Cook House is an award winning restaurant who were also added to the 2021 Michelin Guide. Located in the Ouseburn, run by ‘The Grazer’ Anna Hedworth. This is such an exciting restaurant to work with because their menu changes up almost daily. Our guests get to sample something different each time we visit!

    • Kiln Ouseburn

    An industrial Mediterranean streetfood cafe with contemporary ceramic studio. Great craft beers, great artisan coffee and fantastic people. Here we sample Mezze platters, including their own homemade hummus!

    • Miso, Ouseburn

    If Japanese dining is your thing, then Miso will have just the thing for you! This former music practice room is now owned by an ex-DJ turned chef who has been inspired by his trips to Asia and Japan. First this started as a food van, and was so successful that Ouseburn is now it's home - and, as a pretty cool and swanky part of Newcastle, it makes sense to have a hipster Japanese restaurant at your right here!

A Three Day Trip

You can't visit Beamish without a trip to the world-famous Museum... After a busy few days of indulging in glorious food, you may decide to add on a third night's stay where you can make the most of Beamish Museum which is just a five-minute drive from South Causey Inn. We can provide you with discounted tickets, transport to and from and even a packed lunch for the day, freshly prepared by our Chefs.

    This doesn't have to be the only option for your third day, you could explore Durham City Centre (just a 15-minute drive from South Causey Inn) or make a full day of visiting the amazing coastlines the North East has to offer.

    Or stuff all that and have a well-deserved 'feet up on the sofa' day...
