Rudolph's Restaurant at Fenwick Newcastle (Menu and Review) - a Christmas Pop-Up


Over the past few years, Fenwick has opened a pop-up Christmas cafe. I love visiting each year and it's a bit of a tradition. Sometimes, the theme links in with the Fenwick's Window theme and the Paddington Bear Pop-Up Cafe complete with Marmalade sandwiches had to be my favourite year. The theming was fab.

This year's Christmas cafe is called the 'Rudolph's Restaurant'. Cute! The themed restaurant has opened nice and early and is available to book now (tables should be pre-booked online here). Yes, it is a little early but I for one could do with a little Christmas cheer right now. You can of course, book a date closer to Christmas if you prefer. I would recommend planning ahead as it is likely to be popular. 

You do not need to input any card details or pay up front when you book, and it is via Open Table.

Rudolph's Restaurant is located on the lower ground floor in Fenwick Newcastle. I would imagine it is in the same location as the previous few years and in the middle of the Christmas department. 

This year, it is table service only and customers should book according to current Government guidelines (at time of print, this is with your own household/support bubble only with a maximum table size of 6 but obviously, this could change).

I love the variety on offer at the Christmas cafe - you can simply pop in for coffee and themed cake or maybe treat yourself to a Christmas cocktail. You can order Christmas lunch, sandwiches or even festive afternoon tea (which is what I will be going for). Their children's menu is nice too and I think it will be a lovely treat to enjoy for both children and grown ups this festive season.

Rudolph's Restaurant Fenwick : Breakfast Menu

Breakfast is served until 11:30am (see children's menu further down this post for children's options). I absolutely love the sound of a festive breakfast complete with pigs in blankets and think this would be perfect to set you up before a day's Christmas shopping.

The main menu features lots of Christmas classics including Parsnip and Chestnut Soup and Traditional Christmas Dinner alongside lighter sandwiches and some delicious sounding puddings.

Rudolph's Restaurant Fenwick : Festive Afternoon Tea Menu

The festive afternoon tea is what I have my eye on this year. Available from 12noon each day, it is priced at £14 per person which I think is really reasonable. I am looking forward to seeing the themed cakes as they are usually beautiful. There is a children's version too (see menu at the bottom of this post).

Rudolph's Restaurant Fenwick : Drinks Menu 

The drinks menu looks fantastic and I think I would struggle to choose just one. Mulled wine, spiced apple, toasted marshmallow hot chocolate, Christmas tree G+T, Champagne cocktails......they all sound divine.

The children's menu includes breakfast items, Christmas dinner, a nice veggie option and children's afternoon tea which can be served with hot chocolate.

Just a little note to say that I know my readers are lush and wouldn't do this but restaurants are having lots of issues with no shows lately. If you cannot make your booking, please make sure you let them know with as much notice as possible. 

I have booked a table in October Half Term. Call me crazy but I am going to go all out and order festive afternoon tea. I will add photos and my review to this post after our visit.
