Newcastle Restaurant Week returns August 7-13

NE1’s Newcastle Restaurant Week is set to return August 7-13 with more than 110 restaurants signed up to take part in one of the busiest and most popular weeks in the city’s hospitality calendar.

Diners will be able to enjoy meals at participating restaurants all week for only £10, £15 or £20 per person.

The popular event injects a special vibrancy into the city twice a year, in January and August, filling restaurants with diners and having a positive knock-on effect for other hospitality venues and public transport providers. January’s event attracted more than 58,000 diners and generated over £1million for participating restaurants. The aim is for this year’s events to surpass the record-breaking achievements of the previous two events in August 2022 and January 2023, which boosted the city’s restaurant industry and local economy by over £1.8 million.

The city’s top restaurants are signed up to take part in August’s event alongside newcomers Gaucho and Trap Food House, as well as the welcome return of St Vincent and The French Quarter.

David Taylor, general manager at Gaucho Newcastle, said: “We were thrilled by the response and warm welcome we received from the North East when opening our Gaucho Newcastle restaurant earlier this year, proudly bringing our distinctive flavour of modern Argentinian dining and some of the finest sustainable steak in the world to Newcastle. We opened our doors in March 2023, so missed January’s NE1 Newcastle Restaurant Week, but we are delighted to be getting involved in August’s event.”

Rachel Barlow, marketing and events manager at NE1 Ltd, added: “We’re thrilled to host NE1 Newcastle Restaurant Week again this August. After a record-breaking event in January we’re hoping to once again fill the city with diners who can’t wait to enjoy delicious dishes at some of the city’s best restaurants. We have so many wonderful venues for people to enjoy this year which really adds to the excitement before the event and vibrant atmosphere during the week. Restaurants love the event, the interest it generates and the attention it draws to showcase their venues, their menus and highlight what they do best. Many also use the week to shine the spotlight on rising stars within their in-house chef teams. All venues pull out all the stops to put on a great week in celebration of Newcastle’s vibrant restaurant scene. As always, we hope the event will be a huge success, and will break records in terms of number of diners, and the income boost delivered for the city.”
