Project Bond: Octopussy

"Mr Bond is indeed of a very rare breed... Soon to be Extinct."

1983 was the battle of the Bonds as there were two James Bond Films to choose from, resulting from a legal dispute between Producer Kevin Mclory and Eon Productions. Sean Connery had returned in Mclory's remake of Thunderball 'Never Say Never again' and Roger Moore was back as James Bond for a sixth time in the Eon produced Octopussy.

Thali Tray | Ouseburn | Review

This year we were travelling all day on our wedding anniversary so decided to delay our celebratory meal for a few days and tick a restaurant off Mrs. Cools foodie bucket list. Thali Tray is tucked away in Arch 2 in Ouseburn and serves incredible Indian Street Food.

Redhead's Mac 'n' Cheese | Newcastle | Review

Mac 'n' Cheese is right up there with my favourite comfort food and when Mrs. Cool told me there was a new Mac 'n' Cheese street food place opening in Newcastle I was really looking forward to it. Redhead's Mac 'n' Cheese have been going for while now as a pop up and mobile catering but have recently opened their new home in Newcastle's Grainger Market and this weekend I finally got to try it.

Project Bond: For Your Eyes Only

"The Chinese have a saying; Before setting off for revenge, first dig two graves".
For me Moonraker was the low point of the James Bond franchise and I went into For Your Eyes Only hoping it would be a return to the glory days. Roger Moore returned for his fifth Bond film in 1981 along with Desmond Llewellyn as Q and Lois Maxwell as Miss. Moneypenny. Joining the regulars were Carole Bouquet as Melina Havelock, Topol as Columbo, Lynn-Holly Johnson as Bibi Dahl and Julian Glover as Kristatos.

The Dining Room | Seaham Hall | Review

*This meal was provided free of charge as part of Sam's work. I was not obliged to write this review.

Me and Mrs. Cool recently visited Seaham Hall and tried out their spa and have a long overdue massage. We also stayed overnight and that included a meal at The Dining Room. The Dining Room is a restaurant with a relaxed atmosphere but still serves elegant food.

Shampan | Whitley Bay | Sunday Banquet Review

We love a good Indian Takeaway but we very rarely go out to an Indian Restaurant. I don't know why though as I don't think I've ever had a bad experience. We recently had a family meal out and decided to try Shampan, an Indian Restaurant in Whitley Bay.

The Rib Room | Ramside Hall | Review

Last month it was my birthday and to celebrate Mrs. Cool took me to Ramside Hall Spa. I love a spa day and the Spa here is great it was such a lush relaxing day. We also stayed over and went to The Rib Room Restaurant and our meal was something pretty special.
