4 recommended places to eat in Newcastle upon Tyne

Just a week ago I returned from Newcastle, a city that I had been looking forward to visiting for some time and that has surprised me very pleasantly. If you are planning to visit it soon, I recommend you to read my guide to visit Newcastle in 2 days. But in this one, let’s focus on what’s important: what are the best places to eat in Newcastle?

I’m not going to kid you, I haven’t been in the city long enough to tell you that these are the best places, nor the only ones I would recommend. But they were some of the ones that were recommended to me and I’d say they’re a total hit.

🍴 restaurants to eat in Newcastle

📍Hugo Braserie 

This was the restaurant recommended by the Newcastle Tourist Board for our trip. A modern and elegant place, specialising in meats.

It is located between Tyne Bridge and St Nicholas Cathedral. It is a very cosy and intimate restaurant. I found it a good option if you are travelling as a couple. Also, the food is good quality. For dinner we ordered Slow Roasted Belly Pork and Corn Fed Chicken Supreme. Both dishes lived up to our expectations. Although I was left wanting to try their Sunday Roast.

The average price for the main course is around £20.

📍 Location: 15 Side, Newcastle upon Tyne NE1 3JE

💸 Price: The price of the menu can be around £35-40 per person.

🍴 Menu: You can take a look at the menu here.

Personal opinion: Ideal to go with your partner! Good quality and good location.

📍 The Botanist

This place is located right next to the famous Grey’s Monument. It’s not a typical Newcastle pub, it’s more like a chain of restaurants in the UK with locations in Bath, Birmingham or Reading to name a few cities.

I added it to my itinerary because I had read good recommendations and wanted a place with live music. What I didn’t know is that the live music is in one room and the restaurant in another. But despite that little detail, it was a place I really enjoyed.

It is well known for its famous ‘hangings kebabs’, although what really won me over was the dessert: biscuit dough with oreo and ice cream. I also ordered chicken wings, which I highly recommend. Although these were my choices, I think the whole menu is worth it.

📍 Location: Monument Mall, Newcastle upon Tyne NE1 7AL

💸 Price: The price for a full menu (starter, main course and dessert) is around £30.

🍴 Menu: You can check the full menu here.

Personal opinion: I liked it a lot, it’s a place I’ll be back!

📍Quayside Market 

Newcastle Quayside Market takes place every Sunday from 9:30am to 4pm. You’ll find stalls of all kinds. Traders from all over the region travel to Newcastle on this day of the week to sell their wares.

Hand-painted paintings, clothing, decorative items and jewellery are just some of the items on display. In addition, there are numerous food stalls from around the world and baking stalls – my favourite!

📍 Afternoon tea at Crowne Plaza Stephenson Quarter

During our trip we stayed at Crowne Plaza Stephenson Quarter and tried their afternoon tea. Before I jump into telling you all about the afternoon tea I want to comment that the quality of all the food in general is pretty good. breakfast was delicious too!

📍 Location: Hawthorn Sq, Forth St, Newcastle upon Tyne NE1 3SA

💸 Price: Afternoon tea is priced at around £20 per person and includes a hot drink (tea or coffee), a selection of sandwiches and cakes.

🍴Menu:

Our particular afternoon tea consisted of:

  • Sandwiches: tuna, ham and red onion chutney, egg with mayonnaise and rocket.
  • Scones with sultanas and cheese scones. Both with cream and strawberry jam.
  • British puddings: brownie, chocolate bread and butter and sticky toffee.

Personal opinion: I liked it very much! I think it is a very good value for money afternoon tea.
