The Best Spots for Takeaway Mulled Wine and Festive Hot Chocolates
Broadley’s Bistro, Ilkley
With mini, Christmas treats to go – including fried halloumi bites with sweet chilli and pigs in blankets – alongside mulled wine by the (takeaway) glass and bottle, Broadley’s are ensuring you can still indulge in all things festive this year.
Hawksworth Street, Ilkley LS29 9LB
Brew Bar, Haltwhistle
The duo behind this former blacksmiths, Ashleigh and Sam Jackson, have transformed the spot into quirky bar with an around-the-world twist, serving up quality takeaway cocktails in the most unlikely of locations. Look out for when they play host to some of the North East’s most established street foodies, from Acropolis to Fat Hippo, too.

Social Café Bar, Newcastle
Not your average Christmas combo, but still one of our favourites nonetheless, head here for a slice of festive pizza – from chicken, sausage and stuffing to veggie nut roast, parsnip and potato – then wash it all down with a classic mulled wine to go.

Grön Kafé, York, Harrogate and Leeds
This vegan-friendly food and drink spot recently opened its doors in Harrogate. To celebrate raise a glass of mulled wine and get your Gron Kafe fix (to takeaway, or sit-in if you’re in York or Harrogate). If you’re looking for something a little more luxe, their boozy hot chocolates won’t disappoint. Choose white or milk chocolate spiked with baileys, whiskey, amaretto or raspberry liquor. Try the white chocolate with raspberry and thank us later.

Serving one of the best line ups of festive hot chocolates we’ve seen – think black forest gateaux, Biscoff, ginger bread, Terrys chocolate orange, as well as heart-warming mulled wine – this one is a sure bet to warm up after a brisk winter walk along the coast.

Hibou Blanc, Newcastle
If you’ve been looking for ways to get in the festive swing, chances are you’ll already have stumbled across Hibou Blanc’s hot cocoa bar. Stop by for guaranteed Christmas cheer, expect a magical window to marvel at, Bublé on repeat, and spiced mulled wine, Bailey’s hot chocolate with toasted marshmallows and a dusting of golden shimmer, and a range of festive savoury treats too.
13 High Bridge, Newcastle NE1 1UW
This Jesmond favourite have turned to tacos for takeout – from breakfast chorizo and halloumi tacos, to seared steak, Korean chicken and Baja fish tacos too. What’s best? Whilst you wait for your order, huddle outside under a heater and enjoy their ‘soup of the day’ – warm, hearty and spicy mulled wine.

The Mockingbird Deli, Yarm
Christmas is synonymous with festive feasts – cheeseboards we’re looking at you. This year, we’re making no exceptions, and thanks to The Mockingbird Deli, we don’t have to. Pick up one of their deli platter sharing boxes to go, something sweet to follow (there’s toasted panettone, and a range of home-made cakes) and wash it all down with mulled wine – or one of their famous orange hot chocolates.
