The Finest Food in the North at Fenwicks Food Hall, Newcastle

With the arrival of the Great Exhibition of the North, Newcastle is the place to be this Summer and has given us all the best excuse to shout from the roof tops about how great life in the North really is. Our beautiful scenery, inspiring people, rich heritage and, of course, our wonderful food and drink. This Summer you can celebrate the very finest food in the North at Fenwick's Food Hall in Newcastle.

Starting this weekend, Fenwick's Food Hall are waving the flag high for the region's best producers and chefs with a series of events that are guaranteed to leave your belly very happy.

The Finest Food in the North at Fenwicks Food Hall, Newcastle
Fenwick x Hepple Gin Window Experience

Last night I was very lucky to be one of the first to attend the Fenwick x Hepple Gin Window Experience.

Over the next three days Fenwick will be hosting a unique four-stage gin experience along their famous Northumberland Street Window (I have to say I never thought I'd ever have the opportunity to step inside the Fenwick's window and it's pretty special)!

Hepple Gin showcases the very best in northern craft with their special gin created in the untouched Northumberland Moors. The event offers a rare opportunity to enjoy gin cocktails whilst learning about the Hepple Estate - from gathering wild ingredients to the techniques used to create Hepple Gin.

A live demonstration takes you through the process of how green junpier is vacuum distilled to draw out the fresnhess of the berries to create Hepple Gin before learning how to create and enjoy a Marrtini and a White Lady at the Hepple Gin Masterclass.

The event ends with the chance to sit back and relax in the bar with your Hepple Gin cocktail in the pop up bar in Fenwick's Window - let me tell you, it's the best people watching in the Toon!

There's something quite special about being let loose in a shop at night and this Summer Fenwick's Food Hall will be hosting a pop up night market where you can enjoy live music as you browse food stalls and pop up bars showcasing the finest food and drink.

Tokens can be spent at the gin, wine, champagne bars or at the selection of food stalls including oysters, tapas, cheese and charcuterie or, my personal favourite, the eclair bar.

Last entry to the night market is at 9:00 pm and all of the restaurants in the Food Hall will remain open until 10:00 pm so you can enjoy the special opportunity to indulge in some late night dining in Fenwick.
