2 for 1 at As You Like It

An all-in-one venue offering four bars, a garden terrace and an unmissable restaurant, there’s no doubt that As You Like It is one of the best places to dine out in Newcastle.

There’s no reason for locals seeking restaurants in Newcastle to venture outside of Jesmond as one of their top bars, As You Like It, serves some of the best international dishes around.

Just north of the city centre, lies one of the best places to eat in Newcastle. While the affluent suburb makes for a worthy alternative to the Newcastle nightlife scene, it’s places like As You Like It that are putting it on the map for culinary delights. And best of all, the three-storey venue offers it all under one roof, with multiple bars and their charming restaurant.

Newcastle restaurants don’t get much better than As You Like It. The eclectic space might be easily missed when walking past the grey exterior of Jesmond Three Sixty, but that would be an unfortunate mistake indeed. The impressive venue’s restaurant has bags of character, with mood lighting and cosy booths that make it more than perfect for a romantic meal or a catch-up with friends.

Dining out in Newcastle has never been easier as As You Like It’s eclectic menu takes inspiration from all over the world. Diners will find all manners of deliciousness, from tempura king prawns and Thai red curry to fish and chips and their gloriously messy dirty burgers. Vegan and coeliac diners aren’t left out either as the menu features plenty of options such chicken wings and pasta.

For those looking for something a little different to shake things up, As You Like It won’t disappoint. And in addition to tasty international delights, savvy tastecard members can take advantage of restaurant savings too when they call to book ahead and present their cards. With extra money back in their pockets, they can treat themselves to an extra side, pudding or another round at the bar.

Important Information

    The food is no longer adventurous and creative. We love coming here for special occasions but we felt tonight we could have got the same experience at the local pub. I told the waitress it was my birthday and there was no additional service. We will be finding somewhere else to spend our events after tonight's experience as it no longer worth the money. "

    The food was great, my partner did get ill from the fish but I believe this is because he's recently found out he has some sort of allergy.
    The cocktails were that amazing I actually took pictures, something I normally tell others off for. "

    I had the misfortune of being brought to this restaurant on my hen weekend. I was really looking forward to the food as the drink that i had ordered (spicy tomato juice) was divine (like a virgin Mary) and i expected that to set the tone for the rest of the meal. Unfortunately, what followed was a cascade of culinary nightmares. The chicken wings were tasteless and the thai chicken curry was just awful (imagine boiled rice swimming in a sea of yucky, watery curry with a bit of chilli and the sweet taste of tomatoes, coriander)! It has got to be the worst Thai curry i have ever tasted. My friend ordered the goats cheese, which arrived cold and not char-grilled (she had to ask for this to be done twice, and even then it was mediocre). Would definitely not recommend!! "

    On our anniversary one of the starters was so good my boyfriend ordered it again for pudding!
