Ouseburn Cafe

Our personal favourite is their Ultimate Burger which consists of a beef burger, bacon, lettuce and onion, all sandwiched between two cheese toasties. If you’re feeling extra brave you can even make it a double. Good prices, good food but not for the faint-hearted.

Artisan is still relatively new to the Ouseburn Valley, and their mantra, ‘where food is art’ may seem a touch too high-brow for some. At Artisan they pride themselves on the best locally sourced ingredients, producing fresh seasonal dishes, and it goes without saying that the presentation is exquisite. Perfect for a date-night or special occasion.

Star & Shadow Cinema

More than a cinema, the Star & Shadow Cinema is an alternative social, cultural, arts and community hub run by a collective of volunteers.
