Eating out in Newcastle and surrounding areas
Filled with wonderful pubs, café's, and restaurants, Newcastle relies heavily on their local industries to provide much of the beef, lamb, and ale that are served much to the great pleasure of their patrons. With its 80 year history, world famous Newcastle Brown Ale, with its sweet and nutty taste, is a staple at many a Newcastle eatery. Local dining establishments draw heavily on Northumberland lamb and beef; the best that money can buy. With brand names such as Cheviot and Hexham Blackface lamb and local breeds like Gallaway, Welsh Black, and Aberdeen Angus beef, only the best meats will hit your table when dining in Newcastle.
