After much success in previous years, Newcastle’s Restaurant Week is returning for January 2024! Every year, the city’s best restaurants create a bespoke menu for either £10, £15 or £20 per person. This is a great incentive to sample the wide selection of cuisine on offer, from fine dining to Japanese dishes, vegan food and more. The challenge? Try a different restaurant for each of the seven days. Find out more: NE1 Restaurant Week
