From festive buffet menus to Newcastle Christmas party packages, Hancock has your festivities all wrapped up this season. Think offerings with a more traditional leaning, like oozing breaded brie wedges, accompanied by pulled pork bao buns and BBQ cauliflower bites.

Brandling Arms

A traditional boozer in Gosforth, Brandling Arms is always a top spot for festive meals. Whether you're searching for an intimate dinner with friends or a massive Christmas party alongside your colleagues, the venue's unique food and drink packages have something for every occasion.

The Gosforth Hotel, Newcastle

For a more off-piste Christmas offering, head to neighbourhood spot The Gosforth Hotel. They'll be sorting you out with festive vegan burgers, buttermilk pork belly alongside cranberry ketchup, or a signature pizza topped by cranberry and fig stuffing, cheddar cheese and pigs in blankets.

Fern Dining Room & Bar

Find a Newcastle Christmas Day lunch in 2023 at Jesmond Dene's Fern Dining Room. For £180 a person, you'll kick off with Champagne and canapes before moving to the main event - think duck liver parfait, beef Wellington, classic turkey, and a traditional pud alongside brandy cream and orange marmalade. There's also a festive menu for the rest of the season too.
