With students on their final year of their degrees, graduation is a day which is looming around the corner. Unfortunately, I still have another year at University, but despite this I still believe that I can inform all graduates on the best place to have a meal, being the foodie that I am.
The first place I would like to suggest is a little-known restaurant called “Burger King”. As advertised in the title, Burger King does the best burgers. Be it a single whopper, a double whopper, a double whopper with cheese or a double whopper with cheese and bacon, you cannot be disappointed with such fine and rich cuisine. What makes this restaurant even better though is the one on Northumberland Street has a drinks dispenser in which you can pour unlimited drinks (if you don’t get caught) as well as featuring so many different flavours of Coca Cola. This is definitely a place to go eat at with mummy and daddy who’ve made the long trip up to Newcastle from Berkshire.

My second suggested place is a little bit more up market. In the hollow lands between Newcastle University and Newcastle Zoo (also known as Northumbria University), there lies a fine restaurant where the kings and queens of the North East eat. This a little place called “The Five Swans”. The best thing about this restaurant? Despite being the drinking hole of the elite, you don’t need to reserve a table! You can just walk in and sit at the nearest beer soaked table. Even better though, there’s no annoying waiters who come by and keep on asking you questions about if you want more drinks, what food you want to order and so on. No, no, The Five Swans treats its customers with respect, allowing them to independently order their own food and drinks at the bar. What says “I’m an independent adult who will no longer use daddy’s money” more than independently ordering your own food at a bar!
Don’t forget about the amazing deserts too, a sprinkle filled sugar strand donut, a gingerbread man or even the ever so famous spikey mikey biscuit!
Lastly though, I decided to go for my personal favourite, the Greggs on the big market. Does this Greggs have the biggest seating area in Newcastle? You’re damn right, meaning you can fit all your family and friends in to sit down and feast upon many fine dining options. Maybe you’re a corn beef pasty person, a stake bake gal or a baguette boy, the options for cuisine are never ending. Don’t forget about the amazing deserts too, a sprinkle filled sugar strand donut, a gingerbread man or even the ever so famous spikey mikey biscuit! Either way, no matter what you get, you’re going to have a fine meal whilst you reminisce on all of the times you puked up on the Big Market during your time at Uni because your middle class liver couldn’t handle the harsh drinking environment of Newcastle.
There are many more restaurants worth going to for your graduation meal, I mean there’s two McDonald’s and we’ve had a KFC here for a year now, but I feel that these three places stand above the rest.
