From a rooftop terrace to a Rodizio style restaurant

Here's where to head to...

Out on Top

At the top of Newcastle’s Monument Mall, The Botanist has long been a firm favourite for many, and now with their newly refurbished rooftop there is even more reason to go. The refurbishment adds a new outdoor bar and DJ booth, plus patio heating and soft lounge seating, making it the perfect place to hang out with a cocktail in hand even when the sun goes down.

High Steaks

In the heart of Durham, Rio Brazilian Steakhouse has opened the doors to it’s newest restaurant serving delicious cuts of meat which are carved at your table in traditional Rodizio style. You’ll find a variety of salads, cheeses, cured meats and authentic Brazilian dishes at the salad bar to accompany your choice of chicken, pork, lamb or prime steak.

Home from Home

After a brisk stroll along the beach, head to Dil & The Bear on Tynemouth’s Front Street to refuel – if you’re near Whitley Bay there’s also an outpost at the station. Taking inspiration from flavours from around the world, the menu here is filled with brunch dishes such as New York-style bagels, hash bowls and breakfast sandwiches, plus there are tasty salads, soups and sandwiches for lunchtime, as well as bite-sized treats and towering tiered cakes, all to be washed down with a delicious hot coffee.

Cut above the rest

For your go-to butcher, baker and sausage roll maker, look no further than Nicholsons Butchers who have been supplying the North East for more than 100 years. For everything from beef burgers, lamb legs and pork chops, to brioche buns, cooked meats, pies and local jams and chutneys, visit the Park View shop in Whitley Bay. Locals can also order online and get everything delivered straight to their door.
