Go to town in the Toon

Welcome to Newcastle, a vibrant and lively city in the northeast of England! It's the home of Lumo but, is also renowned for its warm hospitality and rich history. As you explore our home city, here are a few Geordie slang terms that can add some local flair to your visit:

Canny - You might hear this one a lot. This word means "good" or "nice."
Pet - Don't be surprised if someone calls you "pet." It's a friendly term, similar to "dear" or "love".
 Howay - It's like saying "Come on!" or "Let's go!" You might hear it if you go to a Newcastle football match when fans cheer, "Howay the lads!"




The Tanners Arms

Also famously “Scranners” Arms, this local pub based in Ouseburn serves up the best “scran”, slang for food, for a Sunday lunch. Book up a table because this find is a popular one, with a huge roast dinner, vegan options available, to enjoy along with a selection of real ale and craft beers.

Khai Khai

Khai Khai is a restaurant that offers a taste of Indian comfort food all prepared over wood-fire or tandoor. You can expect high-quality dishes created by a Michelin-star chef, but also a keen focus on sustainable and locally sourced ingredients with many vegan options.
