North Tyneside’s first Restaurant Week unveils dates with over 40 restaurants

Food-lovers are invited to partake of some great food and special offers during North Tyneside’s first Restaurant Week.

More than 40 restaurants have signed up for a week-long celebration of North Tyneside’s food scene from Monday October 2 to Sunday October 8. Venues will offer specially priced set menus to entice hungry locals and visitors through their doors.

As well as giving a boost to local businesses, the festival aims to give people the opportunity to try new restaurants or cuisines, with menus priced between £15 and £25.

North Tyneside’s Elected Mayor, Dame Norma Redfearn DBE, commented: “North Tyneside has some of the best restaurants in the North East, from well-established favourites and award-winners to exciting newcomers.

“This an opportunity to highlight our local eateries, celebrate the food scene in North Tyneside, and give our restaurants, pubs, and diners the chance to shine.”

Mark Deakin of Proper Food & Drinks Festivals, who are working with North Tyneside Council to deliver the week-long event, and owner of Salthouse tapas restaurant in Cullercoats, added: “Hospitality went through a rough few years and we are now starting to climb out of that.

“Restaurant Week is successful everywhere, we’ve got a great hospitality sector in North Tyneside to rival anywhere, and it’s only right that we bring back Restaurant Week to North Tyneside, giving people a chance to support the sector during the quieter month of October.”
