Restaurants in Newcastle upon Tyne
With exceptional food and drink served in often beautiful surroundings, you'll find cafés, bars and restaurants in Newcastle upon Tyne to satisfy even the most discerning appetites. They don't mess about with our food here. Zapatista may not be breaking new ground – San Francisco’s Mission District-style assembly line burrito bars are now commonplace in the UK – but it is a reminder of how welcome a development that is. A good burrito is about as much on-the-run, food fun as you can have for a fiver, and this is a very good burrito. Chef Simon Snowball’s cafe is pretty swish – Chesterfield sofas, clean white tiling, attractive counter-top cake displays – but it’s a place where there is no standing on ceremony. Tightly-packed tables give it a nice, cosy buzz; the welcome is warm and you can hear the radio competing with the sound of sizzling bacon in the open kitchen. Gems don’t come much more hidden than Cook House, two converted shipping containers tucked behind Hotel du Vin in Ouseburn. There, Anna Hedworth, aka the Grazer, hosts supperclubs and food-related events and, on weekdays, serves breakfast and lunch until 3.30pm. Considering the lush, open countryside and clear coastal waters just minutes from the city, it's no wonder we have such a wealth of fine local produce.
The Marco Polo Restaurant is just a two minute walk from The Quayside or alternatively a 5 minute walk from both Newcastle Central Station and Monument Metro Station. They have activity sheets and crayons to entertain them until their food arrives, they also have high chairs. Children are welcome at any time of the day and night.
Newcastle's Quayside has seen some dramatic changes over the last 25 years, now providing cosmopolitan living, dining and leisure in the heart of Tyneside. A familiar fixture throughout has been Uno's Trattoria, a place which has forged its name in the hearts and minds of all lovers of Italian food. Its ambience and menus have been enjoyed by many well known faces as well as countless regular visitors and guests to the region.
