Bonfire Night Bites in Newcastle this November
Tuck in to hearty, flavour-packed pies before a chilly night of fireworks...
MONDAY 5 NOVEMBER 2018
If a cosy pub, complete with log fires and plenty of character, is your idea of heaven, then Redhouse is the place to be. Add award-winning pies, mash, peas and craft ale to the mix and you have yourself the perfect, comforting hang-out on a cold night. Amble Butchers in Northumberland make the pies, which stretch from good old steak and ale, to sausage, apple and cider, chicken and chorizo and spinach, goats cheese and sweet potato. Pick your favourite, add your mash, peas and gravy, then you’re good to go. Foodie-heaven in four simple steps.
You’d be forgiven for thinking The Botanist’s talents stop at creative cocktails, but take a seat in the restaurant and you’ll soon discover the delights of its kitchen. Alongside the famous hanging kebabs, burgers and mouthwatering salads, you’ll also discover a handful of rustic, flavour-packed pies to fill and warm you up ahead of a night out in the cold. Go for chicken, ham and leek, steak and ale, or butternut squash, goat’s cheese and mushroom. All served with gravy and mash - or chunky chips!
THE WAITING ROOMS
We love The Waiting Rooms for its chilled-out ‘proper pub’ vibes. Kick-back as the kitchen team serve up plenty of comfort, showcasing Pieminister pies in all their glory. Start with free-range pork scratchings and pigs in blankets, followed by a ‘Moo’ pie (steak and ale), a ‘Free Ranger’ (chicken, ham and leek) or perhaps a ‘Captain Nemo’ (hake, salmon, prawns and pollock). The sides and toppings are out of this world - everything from smoky baked beans and red wine gravy, to minty mash and mac ’n’ cheese.
