Well hello there! Welcome to Scran on the Tyne!

Scran on the Tyne is an award-winning, independent North East and Newcastle food blog.

Thanks for visiting my site! Scran on the Tyne was founded by me, Lauren Archer, in 2013. The site is primarily run and written by myself, with the occasional guest post from other North East foodies. I’ve collaborated with a wide range of brands, including French Connection, Hungry House and a huge number of food businesses across the region and beyond.

I’m all about celebrating everything food, drink and hospitality related throughout our wonderful region and always provide honest, unique feedback on restaurants, bars, cafés and hotels across the North East. I’m no Jay Rayner, but I know a canny plate of food when I eat one, and you’ll find plenty of insightful reviews on this site.

The North East has experienced something of a food revolution, so it’s my aim to share with you the best of the burgeoning culinary circuit and help you take full advantage of the foodie treats our region has to offer.

If you’d like to get in touch to discuss a collaboration, you can do so via my CONTACT page. You’ll also find details there about my sponsored post policy.

If you’re looking for something more than a review to promote your venue or brand, I can help! As an experienced Marketing & PR professional by day, I’m able to offer a range of expert marketing, PR and digital services for the hospitality industry. Find out more about the services I offer, right HERE.

Lastly, thanks so much for checking out my little slice of the internet – I hope you enjoy reading.
