McKenna's at the Northern Stage
Turning 21 years old this year, McKenna’s is the family-run bar and restaurant at Newcastle’s Northern Stage theatre. Alongside pre-show meals, McKenna’s offers breakfast, lunch, dinner, snacks, cocktails, coffee and their famous tapas dishes in a relaxed and friendly atmosphere. With a firm belief in serving high-quality dishes using locally sourced ingredients, McKenna’s has an excellent personal relationship with all of their suppliers.
Serving honest food with Northern charm, the menu at McKenna’s is varied. A daily selection of fresh specials showcases their carefully sourced seasonal produce. Try the Moroccan-spiced chickpeas with spinach and potatoes, or sample a few of the delicious small plates such as tempura black pudding with curried mayo, or the pork belly with chilli, garlic and ginger – perfect for sharing. The selection of drinks behind the bar celebrates the very best of local and international drinks, offering a wide array of beer, wine, gins and an enticing cocktail menu that changes weekly.
A true hidden gem, McKenna’s is situated in the heart of Newcastle, just two minutes from Haymarket. It has a secluded and relaxed ambience with views of the historic Newcastle University and a large lawn where you can bask in the sunshine; not to mention the additional appeal of having the theatre on-site.
