A welcome retreat away from the bustle of Newcastle City Centre for gourmands and those who enjoy the finer things in life, The Gentleman on Bigg Market serves up classic British cuisine and handcrafted cocktails. With wooden wall paneling and vintage-style furniture, The Gentleman is equal parts hip, cosy and unpretentious, with regular live music events taking place. Begin your meal with some Good Old Thyme Mushrooms (mushrooms stuffed with cumberland sausage and blue stilton) before moving on to some contemporary classics like the beer-battered fish and chips, beef and vegetable stew and steak & ale pie. The cocktail menu is equally as appetising, with options like The Gentleman’s signature the Old Fashioned, painstakingly crafted using Gentleman Jack whisky and citrus and the Ferrero Rocher (Frangelico, Absolut Vanilla, Creme de Cacao and cream served over ice with whipped cream and a Ferrero Rocher cherry on top).
This was our first visit on a voucher but we had a Fabulous steak, homemade chips & live music too, we will definitely return and pay full price too.
Can't fault the place.. friendly, attentive staff, great cocktails and top notch food all in gorgeous surroundings! It feels more Grey Street than Bigg Market. Highly recommended.
