Newcastle Restaurant Week Deals

Posted on:

Commencing on the 27th January, NE1 Restaurant Week hits Newcastle, which means that many eateries from big name chains to popular independents are offering great deals for their customers. The promotion runs through this week, and ends on 2nd February, however to make sure you check out, take a look at our top five below if you’re in the city for a short break.

El Coto

If you’re a fan of tapas, but want to avoid the typical high street chains, El Coto offers delicious authentic home cooked food in a spacious Spanish themed location.

Their offering, as part of the NE1 Restaurant Week, allows guests to enjoy any three set menu tapas with a glass of wine for just £15 per person.
