Pleased to Meet You, 41-45 High Bridge, Newcastle upon Tyne, NE1 1EW – Visit Now
Just off Grey Street in the centre of Newcastle is High Bridge Street, famous for its restaurants, such as Pleased to Meet You. One of the first things you’ll notice is the Georgian frontage of the building with the venue’s logo – PTMY, but with a monkey hanging from the Y. This should set you up to expect something a little bit different – classic British food but with a twist.
Starting at its bar – which was also where Pleased to Meet You’s story began – you can enjoy some of the best drinks available in Newcastle. From locally produced gins, provided by the glass or bucket depending on the occasion, to real ales, the bar has everything you could ask for before you sit down to your meal.
Expect something a little bit different – classic British food but with a twist
Moving on to the restaurant, Pleased to Meet You takes the idea of classic British foods and improves and develops them. Modern culinary skills and exciting new takes provide an enjoyable surprise while you enjoy traditional food. All of their food is seasonal, using the flavours that can be attained with what’s available. These fresh products are locally sourced from farms in the North East of England. The catches supplied by local fishing and the game from the woodlands of the northeast mean that this truly is a taste of the region. Lindisfarne Oysters, North Sea Lobsters, Northumbrian Beef and Lamb and mushrooms and truffles can all be expected on the menu during their season.
After your meal, you may be ready to start your night out, and PTMY is more than happy to help. Downstairs is the Viceroy, as they describe it – their late-night affair. Enjoying cocktails inspired by the wide-ranging colonial empire of Britain and exotic climates, you’ll enjoy a truly unique drink while the in-house DJ sets the music for your evening enjoyment. Pleased to Meet You can meet many requirements, from after-work drink right the way through to evening spectacular.
