Introducing the Parlour Plank!

Wed 7th Mar

Fancy a quick bite to eat in the oldest bar in Newcastle?  Well, now you can, thanks to our new 'Parlour Plank' consisting of slow-cooked ham, charcuterie, cheese, pickles and freshly made sourdough bread.
It's available from Monday to Saturday 12-10pm in our new Parlour Bar and costs just £9 per board - ideal for a break from shopping or from the office, low-key business meetings, a pre-theatre show or for visitors to the city! A vegetarian option is also available which features beans/mushrooms on toast, crispy hens egg, cheese, pickles and sourdough.
The Parlour Bar dates back to 1239 when it was used by the Dominican Friars to welcome guests to the city until they left Blackfriars in the 1539.  It was then used by the city's Craft Guilds as almhouses for the poor, old and distressed.  For the past 18 years the Parlour was a gift shop called Pheonix Antiques until 2017 when we took over its occupancy.  Today we run the Parlour as a bar which is open from 11-11pm serving cocktails, wine and local ales including wood-conditioned beer on wood.
