WEEKENDER

Phil Hase, Head Chef at Hotel du Vin Newcastle. Hotel du Vin will be serving up a special menu for Newcastle Restaurant Week 8 – 14 August

Friday night gladrags or a night on the sofa?
Got to be a night on the sofa for me, after a long working week I actually look forward to watching some trash TV with a glass of my favourite tipple.

A super Saturday?
A home match at my beloved White Hart Lane with three points in the bag of course!

We can whisk you away for two dream days. Where would you go?
Anywhere with white sandy beaches and beaming sunshine, when I go on holiday that’s where I spend all my time, so relaxing.

Memorable mini-break?
I went on a fantastic trip to Budapest last year; there are some beautiful churches and historic buildings. Not to mention all the interesting new food I tried, I would highly recommend it!

Sunday best?
You can’t beat going out to a country pub for a delicious homely Sunday roast with friends or family. I just love the buzz about the place on a Sunday.
