Last week I headed through to Fenwick, Newcastle for their official launch event, celebrating the new and improved food hall within the department store. For me, Fenwick is a store I’ve grown up with; seeing the Christmas window display every year and walking around the boxing day sales with my parents. Plus, do I really need to say anything about that beauty hall? It’s safe to say I was pretty excited to see the refreshed look.
Local vendors are clearly celebrated with The Naked Deli juice bar and OCC coffee bar within the entrance and plenty of local suppliers found on the shelves too. Alongside them, lots of other well known brands making Fenwick Food Hall the perfect place to stock up on everything from meat, to cheese, olives, bread and all your sweet treats, especially just before Christmas.
Fancy cake, fish or a pizza? There Mason & Rye for all things patisserie (and believe me, those cakes speak for themselves) and bread related, Saltwater Fish Company if you’re looking for post-work oysters and champagne and Fuego if you’re fancying something Mediterranean inspired. All three look great and whilst I’m not sure I fancy trying oysters, it’s great to see somewhere central to fill the void. Perhaps you just want a glass of wine or cocktail during your shopping trip; there’s a bar beside Fuego or an extensive drinks section so you can pick up some fizz for later.
Fenwick, thank you for inviting me along, I thoroughly enjoyed the selection of canapes and sipping my rose lemonade. I’m already looking forward to my next visit, particularly for cake or chocolate, or maybe both!
