An ideal first stop when visiting Newcastle, the Gin Bar features a myriad mouth-watering dishes to perfectly complement a few exemplary drinks, which, given the name, diners can expect to find in spades at the Crowne Plaza Hotel Stephenson Quarter.
Having seen a recent renaissance, it seems that gin has become the alcoholic drink du jour right now; therefore it comes as no surprise to learn that The Gin Bar at Newcastle’s Crowne Plaza Hotel in the Stephenson Quarter is a popular destination in the city right now.
However, it isn’t all down to the fabulous gin menu on offer here; the food is a star attraction too. Award winning Head Chef Chris Wood has devised a brilliant small plates menu to accompany the drinks at this chic city centre bar, and his use of ingredients from the local area certainly has people excited.
It’s all about the small plates at The Gin Bar, filled with flavour and showcasing some of the north’s finest produce. Tuck into tasty sticky chilli and ginger chicken wings with a lime and coriander sour cream, a Turnbull’s of Alnwick pork pie with a hunk of Cuddy’s Cave, gin and a juniper and red onion chutney, or the delicious mac and cheese bon bons with smoked Doddington’s cheese and tomato chutney. Other highlights include the mouth-watering pulled pork flatbread with BBQ sauce, sour cream and Northumberland smoked cheese.
Found just behind the main train station in Newcastle, the Crowne Plaza Stephenson Quarter is a fashionable city haunt, popular amongst both visitors and locals looking for somewhere chic to drink and dine.
