Newcastle and Gateshead are at the centre of a foodie revolution, and boast a packed food events calendar to satisfy taste-chasing tourists from near and far.
With a well-established restaurant scene, a blossoming street food culture and a legendary reputation for nightlife thanks to our proper Geordie pubs and stylish bars the North East is the place to be if you’re looking for a good meal - so much so, that food events in Newcastle and Gateshead are making days, and even weekends of it!
Newcastle Restaurant Week has long been a key date in the foodie calendar, where you can head to any of the region’s top restaurants to sample their menus at fantastic discounted prices.
You don’t have to venture far for something with more of a party vibe; the Newcastle Gin Festival is ideal for those who enjoy a tipple whilst the Tynemouth Food Festival gives visitors a chance to pick up fresh, local produce whilst admiring the beautiful north east coast. There are also plenty of opportunities to sample sweet treats and savoury eats at the weekly Quayside Market which takes place every Sunday, or the Newcastle Christmas Market which visits during the holidays to offer up seasonal treats and gifts.
NE1 Newcastle Restaurant Week is one of the North East’s most popular leading food events, which celebrates some of the very best restaurants in Newcastle.
With several stylish gin bars in the city, Newcastle certainly loves its gin, so it's no surprise that the spirit is now celebrated with its very own annual festival
