Redhouse- Newcastle

On our recent trip to Newcastle we stopped at The Redhouse for one of their special pies.
Firstle, the exterior of the building is very cute. The Redhouse is indeed red (or pink at the least) and quite an old building. Inside the original features have remained so it is like a warren, be fore warned this means it’s quite dark due to low ceilings, small nooks, and low lighting levels.redhouse.jpg

Paper menus are on each table, and I ordered at the bar. The ordering process is reasonably simple; chose your pie filling, chose the type of mash potato, chose how you want your peas, and chose your gravy (they confusingly call it liquor). I was pleased that they have a couple of nice sounding vegetarian options (neither were vegan).

I got the sweet potato, spinach, goats cheese and onion pie which was nice although the pastry was a little tough. When the pie split open it did seem that the filling was essentially a slice of goats cheese, but it taste nice. The dijion mustard and honey mash was pretty perfect, the peas pudding was good (never had it before so can’t really compare it but it tasted like peas!), and the parsley ‘liquor’ was nice.  My mum got the chicken and chorizo pie and loved it, she very much enjoyed her meal.

I was impressed by the restaurant options I found online when researching Newcastle.  In the end I’m glad we went for pies.  It was a lovely old building, and the food was tasty.  On a cold November day it was just the ticket.
