Travel Guide

Howard’s (pub) guide:

‘The Drop’ My David Blake Books are all set in Newcastle. David likes a pint and coincidentally drinks in my favourite pub ‘The Strawberry’ next to Newcastle United’s ground. If he is on a pub crawl he also likes ‘Rosie’s Bar’, ‘The Newcastle Arms’, ‘City Vaults,’ ‘Akenside Traders’ and a variety of other watering holes in the Bigg Market and the Quayside. My research was arduous I can tell you.
