Newcastle Restaurant Week II

If you have read the first part of my Newcastle Restaurant Week Review, then you already know how my week started.

There are only three restaurants left for me to review.

Newcastle Restaurant Week – Day 5 – Friday – Blackfriars

I have to start by saying that Blackfriars was a must on my list. Blackfriars is a traditional British restaurant, located on a 13th century friary. Some people claim that this is the oldest dining room in the UK.

Luckily enough I was able to book it for 14.30, just in time for me to get off work and have brunch.

This is the menu that I went for:

  • Starters – Honey glazed smoked salmon, beetroot, horseradish, creme fraiche.
  • Main – Pan Haggerty, greens, soft poached hen’s egg, mushroom & sorrel sauce
  • Drinks: Carrot Juice

The atmosphere at Blackfriars is amazing. If you like castles, knights stories, this is the place to go for eating out.

I really enjoyed the food and the staff were helpful and nice.

Chances of me coming back: 100%

Newcastle Restaurant Week – Day 6 – Saturday – As You Like It

I have heard about As You Like It from a few friends and acquaintances, a few weeks ago, but I have never really found the time to go and check it out. Again, Newcastle Restaurant Week was the perfect excuse to visit this restaurant as well – and I am so glad I did!

This is the menu that I went for:

  • Starters – Harissa spiced halloumi cheese, macho peas and warm pitta with peri-peri dressing.
  • Main – Pumpkin tortellini with root vegetable and Parmesan cream.
  • Drinks: Cappuccino

The place is lovely. The food is great. The starter was delicious and so were the tortellini.

I had a great experience at As You Like It.

Chances of me going back: 100%

Newcastle Restaurant Week – Day 7 – Sunday – Pitcher and Piano

Ok, if you have been to the Quayside in Newcastle you must have seen Pitcher and Piano. The location is great, right next to the Millennium Bridge and the restaurant has a lovely decor. I have been here for coffee before, but never tried to food. It was time.

This is the menu that I went for:

  • Starters – Cheesy Leek, Spinach & Chestnut Fritters.
  • Main – Milk chicken breast and skinny fries
  • Dessert – Caramel Brownie
  • Drinks: Cappuccino

Location, location, location. Great location, good coffee but I have to admit that I did not fancy the food that much, as it felt quite plain and basic.

Except the desert. The desert was amazing!

Chances of me going back: 50% – for coffee and dessert

Newcastle Restaurant Week was an amazing experience.

I have visited 7 restaurants, tried delicious dishes and had lots of fun.

I will definitely visit again most of the restaurants. As a matter of fact, I have already booked two tables for February.

Can you guess which were the ones I booked and decided to visit again?
