Route in Newcastle extend a warm welcome and a sumptuous, fine-dining take on Sunday Lunching in this stunning European bistro.
It has a part urban-industrial, part modern luxury aesthetic with exposed piping and rough cement walls contrasting with the lime green velvet banquettes and fine wines lining the shelves. In warmer months the spindly bistro-style seating in the outdoor terrace is covered by a canopy and make for a perfect people-watching spot.
Menus are dictated according to the seasons so expect the freshest of produce, sourced locally where possible. Begin with nibbles – we recommend the Lindisfarne oysters or smoked cods roe for seafood lovers – before starters of burrata, a rich chicken terrine with artichoke crisps or a steaming bowl of mussel chowder.
Roasts include sirloin of beef or roast leg of Simonburn lamb with mint sauce, served with all the trimmings, plus spicy pumpkin and breaded lemon sole for non-carnivores. To finish, their mouth-watering selection of desserts celebrate classic British flavours including a lime a caramelised apple and ginger mess and homemade sticky toffee doughnuts.
