    There's a good one just outside of Morpeth. ( @Duc de Pommfrit will no doubt know The Char Mausum)

    Two in Morpeth itself though one has been a bit hit and miss lately.

    The third one was great but it closed and is now a Turkish restaurant.

    There are loads in Newcastle but it's a while since I've had a curry through in Newcastle so would have to do some research.

    Didn't realise it had closed but there was The Rupali in Newcastle that was always mentioned in Viz:

    Rupali indian restaurant closes after three decades on Newcastle's Bigg Market - Chronicle Live

    Never fancied trying the "Curry Hell" though even if you did get it free if you could eat it all.

    We went to the Manzil on New Year's Day night and one of the lads said his curry wasn't very good I thought mine was good though.

    Went back again in April and I had a Jalfrezi which was perfectly ok the only thing wrong and it wasn't a massive problem was it had no spice in it at all. Perfectly fine apart from that though.

    Tandoor Mahal has always been good when I've been.

    Saffron was good but now a Turkish restaurant.

    Never been there @chris2982 but I've heard a couple of good reports about it.

    It is definitely time we had some more car shows in general and particular a Honda/Japanese car show or meet up here. All we seem to get is dubfest

    Home - Mighty Dub Fest Alnwick Castle

    Could walk in fields any time to see turds don't need to fill them with VWs for that.
    Was looking forward to Japfest 2 at Donnington was gonna try and make it but Rockingham is too far.

    We had a little car show in Morpeth on Sunday for the fair day but the only Japanese car there was an '81 Datsun Cherry N10 there always used to be a couple of Z cars and a 120Y coupe and 100A estate but nothing like that this time.

    They did have an example of the days when Germany made decent cars though an NSU RO80 That was advancement through technology never mind this Vorsprung Durch Technik cack we get now
