Where To Eat In Newcastle: Hawthorns Brasserie

As any Northerner will know, Newcastle is known for it's food scene and it offers hundreds of different types of food for all budgets, tastes and occasions so you're literally always spoilt for choice. I'll admit that I haven't tried as many places in Newcastle as I'd like to and I have a list as long as my arm full of places on my "to eat" agenda but recently I was invited along to try Hawthorns Brasserie, a restaurant serving locally sourced, authentic food and I after reading their menu online, I couldn't wait to get my teeth into their food!

The Brasserie is located inside the Crowne Plaza hotel in Newcastle so it's really central and easy to find and not only hat but the decor is lovely. The restaurant is warm and welcoming with huge windows, wine glasses on the table and comfy, squashy seats. The design of the restaurant is really modern with a chilled out, laid back atmosphere and of course, we got to ordering cocktails straight away (I can never resist okay!) and I could have drank them like pop to be honest! It was such a lovely atmosphere to sit back and just have a drink in while we waited for our food to arrive and they went down way too easily!

I know you're probably drooling already at the food photos because I'm hungry again just looking at it! We skipped the starters but Hawthorns Brasserie has an amazing selection on the a la carte menu, including crab, mussels and soup (I was so tempted by the mussels but I'd never have had room for my dessert!) and for the mains I went for the burger whilst my friend went for fillet steak and as you can see they were delicious. Like I mentioned above, much of the food is locally sourced for the Brasserie and my burger came from Turnbull's of Alnwick, a family butchers in Northumberland and it was one of the best burgers I've had in my life, with onion rings, bacon and a lush tomato relish. The steak was absolutely beautiful as well and both of our mains were served with the nicest hand cut chips I've ever had in my life. In the words of my friend, they were the biggest, fluffiest chips that we've ever seen in our lives and they were honestly amazing. I think I could have eaten just an entire bowl of the chips, I can't even describe how much I loved them - you probably guessed that you have to get chips when you go to Hawthorns - it would be a crime not to!

Obviously we had room for dessert and despite the fact that the menu had some choices that sounds bloody amazing, I went for what I always go for - sticky toffee pudding. I know, I know this blog is just going to end up a hundred different reviews of sticky toffee pudding but I can never resist and this one lived up to my high expectations. My friend went for the cheesecake and oh. my. god. This was cheesecake heaven. The god of all cheesecakes. The absolute mothership of cheesecakes. Cheesecake prom king and queen. We couldn't work out how the chef got the texture so thick, creamy and rich but if you're a cheesecake lover, or even a dessert lover, you will not regret ordering this. It is literally divine. 

Price wise, the Brasserie has got it bang on. It's not expensive at all and for the amazing food quality and chefs that work there, I'd in fact pay more. The service is absolutely amazing too and every single person who served us was chatty, smily and basically, they made our evening even better - it's always lovely to have amazing service from friendly people isn't it?

All in all, I'd highly recommend Hawthrons Brasserie if you want great quality food in a relaxed setting in central Newcastle. I will certainly be going back (and may or may not order ten portions of chips....).

You'll find Hawthorns Brasserie inside the Crowne Plaza Hotel in Central Newcastle, right by the Centre for Life. You can check out their menus on their website and book a table online too.
