Eat, drink and be merry!

    For the festive season our chefs have specially designed three mouthwatering courses to evoke the Yuletide spirit. For the more traditional tastes we offer our take on all of the classics: from fail-safe turkey ballotine, to stone bass fillet or herb crusted cannon of lamb. Veggies need not fret, as we've got you covered. Try the wild mushroom and asparagus soup starter followed by squash and spelt 'risotto'. All mains come with scrumptious trimmings of seasonal veg and saffron potatoes. What would Christmas be without a bit of indulgence? Our home-made dark chocolate ganache satisfy a sweet tooth, or try the winter fruit pudding for a true taste of Christmas. So kick back, relax, put the novelty pinny down and let us do the hard work, and wash it all down with a complimentary gin and tonic.

    It might seem a while to Christmas yet, but the tables are sure to be booked up sharpish, so call us to book a table on 0191 340 5137

    The end of Summer marks the beginning of Autumn and with this new season comes cosy sweaters, pumpkin spiced lattes and an abundance of delicious cocktails. At Pleased to Meet You, our mixologists have been grafting through the night to make the transition into Autumn that little bit easier with the creation of an all new Autumnal cocktail menu.

    Inspired by an array of seasonal produce, we have welcomed in a multitude of heart-warming flavours such as pomegranate, pumpkin, apple and cinnamon to bring you eight new seasonal cocktails. For an authentic taste of Autumn, Pleased to Meet You is the place to be.... Now let’s get shaking.

    Shaken not stirred!

    From the Manhattan to the Martini, cocktails ooze elegance and sophistication in every direction. Their uniqueness gives a sense of class and exclusivity, with Bond’s ever famous “shaken, not stirred” forever on the lips of Vesper drinkers everywhere. Cocktails have always been a stylish, swanky beverage that create and sense of excitement and grandeur amongst even the most pessimistic of us, especially on a warm afternoon as you watch the world go by.

    Highbridge Gin Club offers the perfect location for a chic afternoon of high class drinking at a low cost, as we invite you to sample our wide range of cocktails at a special rate of two for £10 between 4pm and 7pm, from Sunday to Thursday. With a host of expert mixologists and a plethora of classic, modern and in-house favourites, we are sure to have something to suit everyone.

    A Joy to behold!

    When it comes to lunchtime cocktails, there’s nothing like a warm spring day with rays of afternoon sunshine beaming through our open French doors. Add a sharing platter to the occasion and you find yourself in a sense of grandeur, forgetting you’re in the north of England, and not a high end Spanish gin bar faced with a plate of tapas. Our martini lunch is a play on the Three-martini lunch, once the cornerstone of the American business sector, where businessmen would knock back a few martinis whilst conducting a business lunch, before heading back to the office to carry on a day at the desk.

    Our lunch however takes on a slightly different spin to the one that caused so much controversy in the 80s, as we offer lunchtime diners a pub platter and two cocktails for just £20. Our beautifully crafted pub platter comes with Northumberland pulled pork; spinach and goats cheese croquettes, a yolky Scotch egg, homemade fries, vintage cheddar, making for a delightfully sophisticated English style lunch, washed down by two cocktail’s of your choice.

  • ISH!

    A new addition to PTMY.

    Styling itself as Britain’s best kept secret, this traditionally pot stilled gin is produced right at the heart of London. Distilled no fewer than five times, the spirit brings you some of the highest quality British ingredients in each of its twelve botanicals. Whilst this beautifully packaged product take on a modern presentation, the gin itself takes a much more traditional London Dry approach, with its twelve botanicals not straying too far from the norm. With bursts of coriander, angelica root and lemon peel, Ish seems like a fairly standard number, but throw in a double measure of juniper and you’ve got yourself a punchy, powerful gin, with a real gin taste.


    "Only connoisseurs can appreciate beers like mine".

    Anyone who has ever made the bold venture to Belgium will be well aware of the importance of beer within the tiny nation. Like cheese to the Swiss, beer is looked at as a delicacy, with high strength, flavorsome beer the norm, meaning noses are turned at anything less. With these standards wavering for no one, even Guiness had to adapt, meaning in 1944, John Martin crossed the Channel, requesting for a unique, export strength brand of the black stuff to be brewed for the Belgian market. Abiding by his wish, the Irishmen wrestled up Guinness Export Strength, an 8% bottled gem, which proudly boasts the same full bodied creaminess, and settles in a dark, ruby, red colour. While the taste is very similar to their traditional stout, this export brand gives an explosive taste of roasted malt, smoked wood and liquorish, to give a long lasting aftertaste.

    We love Sunday!

    When it comes to Sunday, it’s all about the Sunday roast, the cornerstone of the British week and the one thing that remains constant in the ever-changing, modern diet. There’s nothing like good company and a wholesome, tender roast in a tranquil setting on the day of rest. Using only the finest of local ingredients, our Sunday roast boasts a mouth watering selection of Northumberland lamb, Hamsterley Forest ‘Welsh white’ pork loin and locally sourced beef. Each dish is served with the freshest produce, with an accompaniment of creamed potatoes, buttered green beans, honey glazed carrots and red wine gravy, complimenting our succulent cuts and adding a touch of colour to our substantial feed. When it comes to red meats, nothing ignites the flavours more than an intense blackberry infused merlot. For those really looking to treat themselves, our Velvet Devil Merlot by Charles Smith makes for an impeccable pairing.

    Join us every Sunday from midday
