    of course for a few quid more you could have nipped in to Shotley and had a nice quiet / still berth with access to water and power...

    Last year I moored on the inside and I think there was a reserved sign or similar there (like you say you can't book a place) but I never got away with it; a grumpy harbour staff bloke told me it was reserved for a disabled person. They did turn up later, nothing obvious in the way of disabilities but did seem to be a good friend of the aforementioned person.
    I managed to squeeze in nearby.

    Must admit I have always found the stalk there really pleasant and helpful. We all have good and bad days I suppose. If I plan to go I normally will check on the webcam to see how busy it is first.

    Fish and chips from the Pie-Seas (Church St?) is fantastic, the locals are queueing down the street at opening time!
    The Pier Cafe is fine as well. Also the Alma pub, (probably others) or even the big hotel opposite the lightship... so it's definitely an improvement!

    I know I am brilliant but walking on water to get to the Alma is beyond me.
    Life is too short to drink bad wine.

    Well, there’s more choice, but having eaten at most of those, I’m not certain they are an improvement... we made a special trip for the chippy one weekend, not impressed.


    The Thai place otoh was very good.
