Rare Lounge Bar & Steakhouse

For serious carnivores, Rare Lounge Bar & Steakhouse is a must-visit this weekend.

Bill says:

“Both the Dresden and the Newcastle locations offer the perfect mix of subtle ambience, quality service and top-notch steaks. There are good options for vegetarians too. Get yourself down there.”

The Exchange Bar & Kitchen

Tapas-style sharing platters, a hearty menu, craft beer, fine wines & spirits, cool music and premium entertainment, all under one roof.

Bill says:

“What can I say? This place is cool. The music and the interiors are second to none - there’s barely ever a bad track on the speakers - I had a great meal here, topped off with and a couple of tasty beers.”

The Quarter

A deli, bistro, cafe, gin bar and live piano joint in the heart of Hanley’s thriving Cultural Quarter.

Bill says:

The Quarter is a real gem and the piano accompaniment adds an extra element of atmos while you’re drinking and dining. I had something from the tapas menu and it was excellent. A must-try.”

Windmill Cafe Bistro

110% authentic Portuguese food and hospitality, nestled in the heart of Newcastle-under-Lyme town centre.

Bill says:

“I’d never had genuine Portuguese fayre before visiting here but I must say, it’s delicious. You have to try the legendary Windmill Cafe Portuguese tart.”
