Unique Outdoor Dining Pods Set to Return to Newcastle’s Quayside this Winter


The Dining Society Presents... Christmas Tyne

The popular festive dining experience, Christmas Tyne, will be returning to Wesley Square on Newcastle’s Quayside this winter, offering customers a safe haven from the cold nights where they can enjoy seasonal food and drink with family and friends.


Looking out over the stunning views of Newcastle’s iconic bridges, the custom-made transparent dining pods - complete with indoor heating, a personal speaker system and free Wi-Fi - will be pitching up on the 27th November on the former site of the ‘Quayside Seaside’, opposite the Newcastle Law Courts.


The Pods, which allow groups to dine in their own private restaurant for the evening, will be a welcome retreat for friends and families who have missed parties and special occasions due to the COVID-19 pandemic.


Hosting up to ten guests per pod, diners will have the chance to enjoy a seasonal three-course meal over an hour and a half, with prices starting from £29 per person.


Organised by event promotion company, The Dining Society, Christmas Tyne has established itself as a mainstay on Newcastle’s Christmas calendar since its launch in 2018, which attracted over 50,000 people.


Steve Davis, founder of The Dining Society, said: “We’re making Christmas Tyne 2021 bigger and better than ever and we’re confident that everyone will love what we have in store. 2020 has been an incredibly difficult year for everyone, so hopefully this will allow family and friends to end things on a high.”

“We were thrilled by the reception that last year’s Christmas Tyne received, and it was amazing to see people travelling from across the region and further afield to enjoy the experience.

“Dining while looking out on the iconic views of the Tyne and Millennium Bridge was a highlight for so many of our customers last year so we’re really happy to have secured Wesley Square on Newcastle Quayside once more.

“We want to create the perfect Christmas day out for families, couples and work parties. We’re really excited to offer this unique experience for the third year running.”


Bookings will be on sale from Friday 19th June from 10 am.
