the hudson

4/5

What’s better on a gorgeous day than going for a cocktail with a mate? Nothing. And The Hudson is now one of my favourite places to do that.

Located just opposite Newcastle Central Station with both indoor and outdoor seating, you can really take in the beauty of our city at The Hudson – while having some very nice cocktails to match. Newcastle Castle is just up the road and some of the oldest buildings in the Toon surround you. Perfect.

Then there are the cocktails. All day long you can get two for £9.95 – and they’re wonderful. From espresso martinis to fruit fizz-style ones and mojitos, there is plenty of choices and much to enjoy. You might say too much if you sat there all day…

Service at The Hudson was impeccable and the interior is gorgeous. A smooth and swanky monochrome theme runs throughout, with huge comfy chairs and fancy tables lining the downstairs seating area.

The only thing that stops The Hudson getting 5/5 is the fact I haven’t tried the food… yet. On the menu there are all kinds of gorgeous brunch items – and I will absolutely be back to try them. It was one of those moments when you were jealous of the food others were getting served. It looked absolutely divine.
