The Best January Deals in Newcastle

4 January 2018 | Jasmine Lee Kennedy

2018 is here and people are starting to rid themselves of last year’s sins – ‘new year, new me’ and all that. No more 8 mince pies in one go, no more liberal flowing of bubbly or ‘just one more chocolate’. Well, for some. If you’re like us, and nothing could get in the way of you stuffing your face, January is a fantastic month in which restaurants and bars offer delicious deals to entice you in at this tame time of year. Here are some to get you started…

The Launderette

The Launderette is not, as the name suggests, a launderette. In fact, it is a quirky restaurant/bar located in the heart of Newcastle which is offering a tantalizing 50% off food throughout January, except for Saturdays, when you book online. Although the offer excludes steak dishes, there’s plenty more to choose from; pizzas, burgers, salads, as well as sea bass, mac ‘n’ cheese, fish and chips and a wide selection of nibbles are all included in the deal. If you’re feeling extra naughty this new year grab yourself one of their unusual cocktails which are in line with their quirky nature – try their Big Banana Batida (Velho Barrerio Cachaca, lime, coconut, banana puree and custard syrup).

The Launderette is located at 48 Westgate Rd, NE1 1TT.
 
Gusto

For affordable but delectable Italian cuisine, make a visit to Gusto where they are offering 50% off food from their a la carte menu, which is valid throughout January if you book online, except on Saturdays from 4pm. Share a board peppered with a selection of delicious meats, olives, cheese and ciabatta coupled with a few of glasses of wine, or tuck in to something more substantial – maybe a burger, pizza or hearty pasta dish will take your fancy. This is the perfect place to warm up this blustery January, as they have an elegant yet cosy atmosphere for you to relax in. The only dish excluded in this offer is their lobster risotto, but everything else is at your mercy.

Gusto is located at 106 Quayside, NE1 3DX. For bookings of 6 or more please call the restaurant directly.
 
Chaophraya

Overlooking the Greys Monument, the beautifully located Chaophraya is an excellent spot to enjoy a touch of Thai food and this January they’re offering 241 on all their mains if you book at least 24 hours in advance. They’re home to classic Thai curries, stir fried dishes and salads, as well as a delicious ‘steamed and grilled’ selection which includes bass fillets and a sirloin steak served with a panang sauce. Thai people love sharing food, and this restaurant encourages that ethos by also offering a list of smaller plates, such as various tempura, fish cakes and ribs, although these are not included in the deal.
 
Chaophraya is located at 15 Upper level, Grey's Quarter, intu Eldon Square, NE1 7AP. Click here to read their T&Cs.

The Waiting Rooms

January offers aren’t exclusive to food, and The Waiting Rooms are offering some incredible boozy deals this month – for £5 you can get two beers, two gin and tonics, or two glasses of wine, and a bottle of prosecco is just £9.95. Although their January deal does not extend to their food menu, they are host to award-winning pie connoisseurs Pieminister who make delicious, hearty pies which you can buy for £6. However, if it’s your first Pieminister experience, go for the Mothership as it includes pie, mash, mushy mint peas, gravy, shallots and cheddar all for £11.50. Head here for a pint and a pie and a proper pub experience.

Update: If you sign up to their newsletter you will also receive 50% off your total bill (which means pies aswell), although you cannot use this in conjunction with any other offers.

The Waiting Rooms is located at 39-47 Westgate Road, NE1 5SG. I

BrewDog

While all your mates are stuffing salads down their throats, we know that all they really want to be doing is eating pizza. Brewdog is primarily a craft beer bar, which showcases some of their Scottish brewery’s own brew as well as regular guest beers, but they also possess a luring sourdough pizza menu. This January, until the 26, if you buy a drink at BrewDog you’ll receive a 20% off food card. Take advantage of this and grab a slice of the ‘spicy meaty’ which is covered in nduja, spicy pepperoni, and chilli flakes, or one topped with halloumi, red peppers, aubergine and a balsamic glaze. They even have a vegan option!
 
BrewDog is located at 6 Dean St, NE1 1PG.
