The secret is already out on Canteen & Cocktails, so it’s a good idea to book in advance. What is not such a good idea is passing on the chance to enjoy genuine, quality American fare right on Norton High Street. Whether you’re craving a carnivorous hit from southern barbecue, in the market for a quick lunchtime diner, looking for hip vegetarian bites or simply seeking a casual space with great ambience and superb drinks for a get-together with pals, Canteen & Cocktails is very hard to beat in Stockton-on-Tees.
An old co-operative building in Stockton-on-Tees has been given a new lease of life by Canteen & Cocktails. The brick venue on High Street in Norton has wide street-view windowpanes to give a real American diner feel, while panelled walls, low-hanging lamps and industrial beer taps help create a grungy-chic atmosphere that has made Canteen & Cocktails one of the city’s most popular eateries and watering holes come nightfall. Canteen & Cocktails and its fantastic menu provide the backdrop for romantic meals, banterous group gatherings and leisurely lunches any day of the week, as well as weekend breakfast.
Anybody anywhere near Stockton-on-Tees with so much as a passing interest in authentic American barbecue needs to come to Norton High Street. Immediately. Canteen & Cocktails smoke high quality meat the old-fashioned way, over embers of hickory wood and fragrant herbs for over 12 hours. Along with classic sides like beans, creamed potatoes, corn on the cob and mac ‘n’ cheese there are also steaks and seafood sizzling on the char-grill, creative meaty and vegetarian burgers and a mouth-watering list of desserts just like mama makes (the pecan bread and butter pudding with banana ice cream is particularly unforgettable). This is without mentioning their cocktails, a superb selection of showcasing their own housemade berry-infused vodkas.
We came here last night for a meal and drinks and had such a lovely time; I unfortunately can’t drink due to a health issue and our waitress was amazing making me different mocktails she really looked after us! I didn’t catch her name but she was little, dark haired with glasses; she was so lovely and deserves recognition for her caring nature! The food was also lovely and we had a really nice time! Thanks so much!
Good service, really nice Sunday lunch. Very friendly staff, was made to feel very welcome. Not long to wait for food to arrive, table cleared efficiently.
The food was very very very very very very good and the cocktails and other drinks were equally very very very very very very good.
