What is it?
Run by three brothers from Wylam Village in Northumberland, this is a jewel in the city centre’s cuppa crown which was inspired by the tea houses of Budapest.
Boasting ‘Newcastle’s largest range of loose tea’ – you’ll find 60 varieties stacked in tins behind the counter – you’d do well to also sample the food menu, which features an array of delights including soups, stotties and salads – the contents of which depend on the season. Oh, and for god’s sake, don’t forget to eat some cake.
Why is it smashing?
As my old grandad used to say, there’s not much that a cup of tea can’t fix – or at least improve immeasurably – and you’re going to be pushed to find somewhere better to enjoy tea in all its glory than here. The staff are delightful, and the tea house is simply a lovely place to spend some time.
Not only that, but if you’re the kind of of person who likes to treat their eyes as well as their tastebuds, Quilliam Brothers also has its very own cinema space – which offers many-a free film night – and a gallery space too. A feast for the senses indeed.
