Try something new; there’s something for everyone in Morpeth
The Auction House
63 Bridge Street, Morpeth NE61 1PQ
After the final hammer fell, The Auction House has been given a new life as a quirky bar and eatery, serving up cocktails, street food and plenty of Instagrammable interiors. Food is served from noon each day, with brunch available at weekends, and the menus here feature everything from small plates and posh sandwiches to loaded fries, burgers, salads, curries and bao buns.
40 Bridge Street, Morpeth NE61 1NL
This stylish Italian restaurant is one Morpeth’s most popular dining destinations. Booking a table over the weekend is essential, but well worth it to enjoy Lollo Rosso’s freshly-prepared authentic Italian dishes, buzzing atmosphere and live entertainment.
Niko’s Greek Taberna
61 Bridge Street, Morpeth NE61 1PQ
This modern Greek restaurant opened in Morpeth on Christmas Eve 2018 and has secured a good reputation with local diners. Serving fresh Greek cuisine, you’ll want to keep going back to try more dishes from Niko’s menu.
Pleased to Meet You
Bridge Street, Morpeth NE61 1NB
Following a major redevelopment, Morpeth’s iconic Queen’s Head is now home to Pleased To Meet You. Function spaces and hotel rooms will follow, but for now you can stop into the tea room or restaurant to eat, or head to the buzzing bar for a cocktail (they do good espresso martinis).
Elm House, Wellway, Morpeth NE61 1BJ
This new Morpeth brasserie has gone down a storm since it opened, quickly building a reputation for good quality food and efficient service. The purpose-built space is contemporary and smart, and the menus include seasonal set menus, a la carte options and even a small kids’ menu. Sunday lunch is a highlight here.
St Mary’s Inn
St Mary’s Lane, St Mary’s Park, Morpeth NE61 6BL
You’ll find pub staples alongside more adventurous options on the menu at this relaxed pub – think black pudding and haggis Scotch egg, pie of the day with triple cooked chips and vegetables, or rosemary and goats’ cheese tortellini. There are 11 airy bedrooms here too, and dogs are welcome.
17 Bridge Street, Morpeth NE61 1NL
With an extensive range of traditional Bangladeshi and Indian dishes, the chefs at Tandoor Mahal are trained in ‘home-style’ cooking methods, creating authentic and distinctive dishes that vary from region to region. Oh – and they serve the best naan bread around.
