Newcastle Restaurant Week

It’s that time again - NE1 Restaurant Week starts tomorrow (Monday 7th August) and runs until Sunday 13th August. Twice a year Newcastle’s best restaurants offer up special fixed price menus, with the idea being that you try somewhere new or make the most of an excuse to visit an old favourite!

We’ve rounded up our favourites from the long list of participating restaurants (the full list can be viewed here).

It’s always a good idea to phone ahead during restaurant week, as some of the more popular restaurants do get booked up.


2 courses £15, 3 courses £20

There is no getting away from it, even with the increasing competition 21 is still the holy grail of Newcastle dining.

Confit of duck at 21

With the average cost of an a la carte main course being £20, getting two courses for this £15 is a great deal.  Why not try the Roast Peppered Sirloin of Beef with Duck Fat Sautéed Potatoes and Watercress followed by Chocolate and Espresso Mousse with Cocoa Nib Ice Cream?

The Broad Chare

2 courses £10, 3 courses for £15

The Broad Chare

Another one that always delivers in the Broad Chare. This cool and cosy gastro pub is part of the same group as 21, so the quality of the dishes coming out of the kitchen is always top notch. Why not try the Smoked Haddock Croquettes with Saffron Mayonnaise to start and the Blackened Mackerel, Fennel, Capers & Herb Relish main course?

This glamorous Thai restaurant has one of the best views in Newcastle, looking out over Grey’s Monument.
