Took a trip to our local Ikea store in Gateshead yesterday.

Don't normally bother with their restaurant, but they're currently doing a mean Chickpea Biryani for 1.25!

It was well tasty!

Just thought I'd mention it. Good place to stop off if you can't be bothered to cook and has the benefit of a lovely big car park for the campers http://images.proboards.com/v5/images/smiley/wink.png

Also, for those who don't know already (sorry if I'm teaching granny to suck eggs), if you get one of their free IKEA Family cards you can go in anytime and have as much free tea and coffee as you want.

They also do a cheap breakfast and their meals are reasonably priced. When I was at work I used to go there to kill a couple of hours if I had an evening meeting. They do, however, have a poor sense of location finding, as 'IKEA Birmingham', is actually in Wednesbury, where I grew up, about ten miles from and very definitely not part of Birmingham. At least IKEA Bristol is in the right place. :D

No height limits at the Gateshead IKEA :)
Might have something to do with the fact there's a public bus service running right through their car park and out the other side ;)

Personally I'm really fond of their cheap hotdogs.

If you are in a long queue to pay & have a chum with you they can fetch & carry & keep you fed with them whilst waiting. :cool:

Do you have to be a member/have a card? They are building a new Waitrose in the middle of Hereford. Mind you, you'll probably have to pay to park.

We only have 3 Waitrose up here (being poor, downtrodden and ignored by the wealthy south - there's noffink norf of Watford Services I believe... :lol-049: :lol-053: )

Jesmond, Ponteland and Hexham. I don't think any of them are big enough to have an in-store cafe :(

:idea-007: That's because it's closer to Sweden, saves on transport costs. :)

Bet it was still cold though...

Our nearest Ikea is 70+mls away, but have joined anyway just in case we are passing at some time, so thanks for the heads up.

Used to live near the Leeds store (7 miles from Leeds) would often see truckers having breakfast for 1 instead of 8 in the services 2 miles away

Was just about to post that our local Ikea hasn't got an eating bit when I realised it was actually an Aldi! :confused:

Talk about being thick etc! :hammer:

We live in Redditch, I thought that was the middle of Birmingham when I moved here.

Still too close for my liking!!
