Eating in the NE - Pleased to meet you

Another day, another restaurant review and this time, I'm talking about Pleased To Meet You, in Newcastle city centre.

You could be forgiven for never having come across this gin and draft bar, tucked away down a small side street within the centre. With it always being somewhere I wanted to try, on an evening where my friend and I were aimlessly walking, seeing which restaurant took our fancy this time, we took the opportunity to try it out.

The menu is modern, with a traditional twist. From fancy burgers to pub favourites, you'd have to be pretty lucky to narrow your possible options to even three - so much amazing choice! I couldn't take the heat personally, so decided on getting a platter of fabulous treats, from fish sticks and prawns, to gourmet sausage pastries and simply the best scotch egg I have ever tried. I was very jealous of the mini burgers my friend decided to get but obviously it just means that I'll have to visit again, to sample them for myself... These platters are actually called 'Sharing boards' but when it comes to food, sharing is simply not in my vocabulary so let's move on...swiftly!

The cocktail menu is very very very good and I would say it is a 'go to' place for all your alcohol needs. We decided on a bottle of Rose because, well, wine makes me happy but even the nice little touch of serving the bottle in a bucket of ice was just lovely. Our waitress was attentive and super speedy, without being too much and making you feel rushed and unwanted. 

With a chilled out atmosphere, great quality food and really nice decor, Pleased To Meet You lived up to all of my expectations, and more.

Where have you eaten recently?
