HOP & CLEAVER








Just before Christmas I took a short break from life and popped on a train to Newcastle. I stayed for a few days with my girl Emma, and those few days consisted of sleeping, pampering, shopping and eating. Did you expect anything else from me? Didn't think so lol.

On one evening Emma suggested that we visit a local place called Hop & Cleaver and after looking at the menu online and seeing mac n cheese, ribs and milkshakes - I was sold. Obviously.

For starters I had the Hop & Cleaver way of doing potato skins. I kinda loved it, kinda hated it too. It was tasty and all but a little too much. It was ridiculously rich and quite sickly because of the insane amount of cheese, but the crunch of spring onions and the fluffy potatoes sort of made me finish it? Im obviously just a pig who doesn't like wasting money HAHAHA.

For my main course I had the bbq ribs with chips, mac n cheese & coleslaw. Honest to God these ribs were probably one of the best ribs I've ever had. They were juicy and meaty - not a fan of ribs with very little meat on & there were as meaty as they come. I actually couldn't finish them but they were so so so sooooo good. Full of flavour and cooked to perfection. The meat literally fell off the bone. Chips are chips but I love chips (everyone knows this) and they get a thumbs up from me. I was little disappointed with the mac n cheese, WHERE IS THE CRUSTY, DRY, GRILLED CHEESE ON TOP? I was genuinely devastated but in all honesty, the flavour made up for it. The mac n cheese had green chillies in it so the kick and flavour was outstanding - I cleared the bowl, obviously. The coleslaw was pretty good too!

Like I said, I didn't finish my meal but that did not stop me from ordering an Oreo milkshake. Sadly, this looked better than it tasted. It was alrite, but numerous times I've definitely had a lot better!

If you're ever in Newcastle give this place a go. I heard the chicken & waffles are superb!
