The Herb Garden Pizza Kitchen


The Herb Garden Pizza Kitchen is an offbeat gem regularly ranked as serving the best pizza in NewcastleGateshead, located on Westgate Road between Central Station and Newcastle Castle.

A unique experience for lovers of rustic Mediterranean cuisine, The Herb Garden was founded with a strong DIY ethos, with the entirety of its warm and inviting interior designed and hand built by the owners. This includes an impressive hydroponic rig (The Herb Garden of the name), created with the intention of growing all leafy produce within the restaurant itself.

This commitment to bespoke quality extends crucially, to The Herb Garden’s delicious menu. Everything is made in house, from scratch, in small batches. Pizzas are stone baked to perfection in the restaurant's specially designed pizza ovens, and the salads are arguably the freshest in town, being hand picked daily from within the restaurant itself.

A revamped menu launched in early 2019 sees many of the much loved pizzas and tasty combinations joined by new flavours and a wider selection of Mediterranean dishes, calzones, salads, breads, vegan options, starters and sides all prepared in a distinctive offbeat style. Here are just a sample of what you could be sampling from The Herb Garden's new menu:

​New salad mains include an imaginative ‘Roasted Carrots, Feta, Lentils, Red Onion, Mixed Leaves, Honey, Lemon and Mint’ combo.

The sides menu welcomes the highest number of new dishes including a ‘Celeriac Gratin’, ‘Herby Potatoes’ and ‘Pizzasallad’, a Swedish slaw that complements pizza perfectly.

New mouthwatering pizza ‘Lamb Shawarma, Cherry Tomatoes, Red Onion, Chilli, Harissa, Garlic, Dill and Parsley Sauce’.

A new ‘Rhubarb and Vanilla Cheesecake’ tops off an already extensive and imaginative dessert menu.

The restaurant doesn't take bookings, making it an ideal location for casual, impromptu dinners, and as it opens from 11:30am daily, The Herb Garden is also the perfect lunchtime spot. The weekday lunch menu is available to sit-in and takeaway, and includes an unbeatable £5 Pizza and Pudding deal, along with freshly made wraps and salads. Better still, if you pre-order lunch by phone or email, they'll have your order ready to collect.

For those seeking something a bit special, look no further than The Herb Garden's private dining experience. Situated in a secluded area high above the restaurant, with seating for up to 14 and a private waiter catering to your every whim; this is the perfect location for your next party, function, or business lunch.

Weekends at The Herb Garden are all about recuperation. Brunch is taken very seriously, and the breakfast pizzas are a delicious twist on The Herb Garden's acclaimed recipe. On Sundays they also have exclusive deals for industry members.

And last but not least, for those poor souls sick of value frozen pizzas, The Herb Garden has regularly updated student deals to help that loan stretch that little bit further.
