A Guide to Newcastle Restaurant Week - August 2017

It's that time again! When those of us living in Newcastle can justify eating out every night of the week. Yes, Restaurant Week has been announced and, although it's not until 7 August, the list of restaurants and deals have been released (check out the full list here) and believe me it pays to be organised and get your table booked now. The popular restaurants will fill up fast.

As I'm busy researching where we're going to book (this involves a lot of menu studying!) I thought I'd pick out some of my favourites to share with you. I just wish I could book a table at all of them!

Guide to Newcastle Restaurant Week - August 2017

Dobson & Parnell

The Deal: 2 courses for £10 or 3 courses for £15

My favourite new restaurant in Newcastle, the food at Dobson & Parnell is beautiful and Restaurant Week is an ideal time to visit with a delicious 5 dishes per menu to choose from. The Rope-grown Mussels with chips sound fantastic and I know that Simon will be all over the sticky toffee pudding served with vanilla ice cream and salt caramel.

The Deal: £10 Beer and Burger

There are definitely more chain restaurants involved in Newcastle Restaurant Week than there used to be and Byron is one of our favourites from the selection. Their burgers are lush (pink and juicy!) and if you're yet to give them a go then this is a great excuse. Unfortunately the Restaurant Week menu is a little limited (come on Byron, give us some more choices!) but if you like a classic cheese burger you are in luck!

Chaophraya definitely isn't the cheapest place in Newcastle to eat so we save it for special occasions. So it's great that they have a good deal for Restaurant Week for those that want to give the Thai restaurant a try without breaking the bank. Theres a choice of three dishes on each course including my favourite Steamed Pork Dumplings.

Chez Mal 

The Deal: 2 courses for £15 or Burger and Drink for £10

If you are yet to visit the Chez Mal at the Malmaision since the beautiful refurbishment then Restaurant Week presents you with the perfect opportunity. The Restaurant Week menu offers some delicious Summer dishes and the Banoffee cheesecake for desert sounds heavenly. If you prefer something a little more casual then why not enjoy a Mal Burger and drink in the Bar?

Colonel Porters

The Deal: 2 courses for £10 or 3 courses for £15

One of the newest places to open in Newcastle, make your first visit to Colonel Porters during Restaurant Week for a pretty large menu of options including what's probably my favourite dessert menu of the week.  Jam Roly Poly and Black Forest Brownie? Yes please!

La Yuan

The Deal: A Hot Dish for £10 or Appetiser and Hot Dish for £15

I had the pleasure of trying La Yuan for the first time a few months ago and they serve the most delicious Chinese food you'll find in Newcastle. The Restaurant Week menu is extensive and includes my favourite, Yu Shiang Pork!  All dishes are served with a bowl of rice (which are huge!)

Marco Pierre White

The Deal: 2 courses for £15

Wear baggy trousers! Whenever I eat at Marco Pierre White I end up having to roll myself home, the food is so good! The Restaurant Week deal offers a choice of four dishes per course including my favourite Lightly Curried Smoked Haddock Risotto served with a Free Range Poached Egg and Chocolate and Salted Caramel Tarte served with Pistachio ice cream.

Believe me that is only a very small taster! With over 100 restaurants taking part it's worth having a good long look through everything on offer before making your decision.
