Advice for studying abroad Paleo in Newcastle, UK!?

HI! So I am planning on studying abroad this coming Spring Semester in Newcastle upon Tyne, UK. I am unsure of the meal plan that I will be on. I believe there is a catered option and a self-catered option (I am leaning towards the self-catered option so I can cook).

My question for you, is there any great paleo restaurants around or is Paleo a known thing around the UK? how hard is it going to be for me to eat well?

Thanks for your help!!

I would definitely agree with the advice already given, cooking for yourself will always give you the chance to get the best nutrition. The markets are great, and you can source Paleo staples like virgin coconut oil in lots of places around the city.

There is a great café called The Naked Deli in Heaton that serves high quality protein (grass-fed/pastured/sustainably sourced) and great salads plus Bulletproof coffee and Paleo 'treats'. They serve until 7pm.

Other than that you can always do some crafty ordering, look for places that serve well-sourced protein, leave the grains, and ask about ingredients you're not sure of. Good luck with your studies!

Do not go for the catered if you are sticking to paleo as their choices aren't that paleo friendly. Usually with pastas and potatoes. I am currently self catered and find no problem sticking to paleo, and like andrew said, the market is your best bet! In terms of restaurants, I haven't found any!! which is depressing

If you are self catering, then you can go to the market in Newcastle - excellent source of cheap and good veg and meat. Also, there are some very good butchers in the area selling local, grass fed free range meat.
