I like to participate in life rather than be a spectator. Music, dancing, theatre, travelling, food, cycling and walking are some of my passions. Writing is an enjoyable pastime that allows me to share my experiences.

Formerly known as The Hamilton Hotel when built by Tooth & Co in 1936, this hotel has long been known by locals as The Greenroof. It is a true local pub that offers entertainment, food, drinks and accommodation.

The food of Greenroof Kitchen is by Newcastle catering legends Ron & Raf. The menu contains the usual steak, schnitzel and battered fish but also has interesting tasting plates of cured kingfish, Japanese popcorn chicken, fish tacos and dumplings.
