WEEKENDER

Simon Walsh is owner of - and chef at - Longsands Fish Kitchen in Tynemouth, which has made it on to the UK's list of top three fledging fish and chip shops just 15 months after opening. Simon and the team will find out this month if they've done enough to win Best Newcomer Award at the Fish and Chip Awards 2017.

Friday night – gladrags or sofa?
A night on the sofa with one of my favourite films, Goodfellas, and a nice glass of Pinot Noir.

A super Saturday?
An early morning bike ride up the Tyne Valley, followed by breakfast with the family at Ernest in Ouseburn, Newcastle. I’d then catch Newcastle United winning (hopefully) at St James’ Park, before enjoying dinner at Caffe Vivo on the Quayside with my wife, Jo.

We can whisk you away for two dream days. Where would you go?
The F1 in Monaco followed by a quick flight over to Ibiza for a night at one of the island’s oldest and most glamorous clubs, Pacha.

Memorable mini-break?
Barcelona, for its incredible culture, architecture and amazing markets and restaurants.

Sunday best?
A lazy morning reading the newspapers, Sunday roast lunch with the family at the Rat Inn in Anick near Hexham, and a leisurely walk along the River Tyne at Corbridge. Bliss.
