Best Gastropubs In Newcastle
For restaurant-quality grub within the classic British surrounds of a local boozer, these venues come out on top. Whether you're after somewhere that's made it into the Michelin Guide or a recommendation that also has its own microbrewery, check out our guide to the best Newcastle gastropubs.
While not strictly a pub, As You Like It's food menu and Sunday roasts have all the gastro leanings you could ask for. Think chicken breast with black truffle, wild mushroom and rosemary tatties, confit duck leg, or a roast shallot tarte tatin covered in smoked Northumberland cheese and cider caramel.
One of the best gastro pubs in Newcastle city centre, The Forth has many different kitchen residents for you to get stuck into. From a Southern-fried chicken twist on a gravy-soaked dinner to Ruby Jean's burgers and poke bowls or plant-based curries courtesy of Veg Heads, there's something for everyone.
From the city centre YOLO Townhouse to the Ponteland venue, this drinking and dining destination has your need for elevated pub grub covered. Think grill dishes, bottomless brunches with small plates, pies, kebabs and more across a characterful setting.
As the longest-standing pub in the city, The Old George Inn has most certainly picked up a thing or two across its years. Expect typical gastro dishes like fish 'n' chips whipped up alongside loaded fries, gourmet burgers and BBQ ranch chicken.
For the best gastro pubs in Newcastle Quayside, look no further than The Bridge Tavern. Not only does it have an extensive menu of small plates at the bar, from game bon bons to beer-battered onion rings, but the mains cover classics like sausage 'n' mash or veg-packed allotment pies and are washed down by pints brewed on-site.
Listed among the top 50 gastro pubs nationwide, The Broad Chare Newcastle is a solid choice when it comes to glowing reviews and Michelin Guide recommendations. Settle down in the dining room here to munch through slow-cooked lamb shoulder, red legged partridge with foraged mushrooms, and Lindisfarne oysters.
