Pubs and Bars with Restaurants
Located within the chic Caledonian Hotel in the heart of Newcastle’s leafy Jesmond suburb, Billabong Bistro is a fantastic restaurant that offers a hearty welcome to hotel residents and non-residents alike.
Thanks to its lively and informal atmosphere, Billabong Bistro is the ideal destination in which to unwind with friends after a hard day’s work and order a bite to eat from a great gastropub-inspired menu. Classics like fish and chips and the Knobbly Whopper hot dog mustn’t be ignored, and Billabong’s gourmet burger shouldn’t be either. The menu also boasts a range of familiar dishes with a difference, like deep-fried mac and cheese, grilled cheese toasties and the Mother Clucka – a succulent jerk chicken breast in a brioche bun served with skinny chips. The team has also introduced a bistro menu, which can be served in either the bar or the bistro and is sure to impress. If it’s a tipple you’re after, you’ll be pleased to find an extensive wine list with New and Old World wine, as well as an excellent cocktail list that features classics such as Mojitos alongside the team’s own creations.
When the sun comes out (or even when it doesn’t) you can head outside to the heated terrace area, sip your beverage of choice and watch the world go by in this cosmopolitan part of the city. Whichever nook you decide to settle down in, you’re sure to have a great time.
