WELCOME BACK: Pubs, cafes and restaurants re-opening in Newcastle

Ohhh how we’ve missed you. Don’t get us wrong, we have absolutely loved the ingenious and super speedy response from Newcastle operators to offer takeaway, delivery and on-line ordering.

But, there is something special about visiting a restaurant, sipping coffee from a ceramic cup and drinking a frothy schooner poured straight from the tap.

So here’s a list of pubs, cafes and restaurants who have let us know they are open and ready for business. If you would like a business included on this list send us an email with all the info:

Due to restrictions on customer numbers and social distancing we recommend checking directly with the operators to avoid disappointment.

Thanks for supporting local Newy, we hope you enjoy!
