Gino D’Acampo has introduced afternoon tea at his Quayside restaurant at INNSiDE Newcastle.
Beautifully presented and served with impressive views of the River Tyne, the afternoon treat combines the best of British tradition with a taste of Italy.
Available from 12pm to 5pm Sunday to Friday and 12pm to 3pm every Saturday, there are three options to choose from – Afternoon Tea (£29pp), Franciacorta Rosé Afternoon Tea, served with a glass of Ferghettina Rosé Brut (£35pp), and Champagne Afternoon Tea, served with a glass of Lallier Grand Cru Brut NV (£37pp).
Presented on a stylish gold tiered platter, the Italian chef’s take on afternoon tea delivers the perfect balance of savoury and sweet, including a deli selection, freshly baked scones, and four picture-worthy sweet treats.
A pot of loose-leaf tea completes the menu with guests invited to choose from English breakfast, earl grey, camomile, green and peppermint.
Advance reservations are required, with guests kindly asked to book a minimum of 24 hours in advance. Reservations can be placed by emailing [email protected] or calling the restaurant on 0191 933 6994.
For those looking to extend the occasion and let the day slip into night, guests are invited to take a seat at the bar where they can enjoy an extensive selection of premium Italian and international wines, cocktails, spirits and beers.
Pull up a seat between 5pm and 7pm, aperitivo time, and guests can enjoy a wonderful selection of complimentary cicchetti to accompany the view. Local resident DJs further add to the atmosphere and make it a destination in its own right.
