The new Bar Café at Tyneside Cinema (open 22 August 2014) is a welcome addition to the city centre not only for cinema goers but for those shopping, working and socialising in town. The venue aims to create a flexible and relaxed experience, offering customers everything from a place to stop for a drink or a quick snack to somewhere to enjoy breakfast, brunch, lunch or dinner with friends.
As well as the food and drink on offer, the Bar Café will also present a range of film screenings and events in a cabaret-style space within the bar. Entertainment planned includes a free weekly screening of a cult film, DJ nights, live music, a regular quiz night and other film and music related events.
Head Chef Tom Adlam, who has devised the menus and will be heading up the kitchen, cut his chef’s teeth in Michelin-starred establishments including Chewton Glen.
For the last 9 years he’s been a fixture in Terry Laybourne’s Café 21 kitchen and now will be letting loose his own signature style in the kitchen of the new Tyneside Bar Café. His fantastic menu is based on his love of simple, fresh food, creating a range of classic dishes with his own twist and some soon-to-be-legendary film snacks.
There is a terrific range of beers and wines as well as the Bar Café's own unique coffee blend and a range of delicious and original freshly made smoothies and soft drinks.
Tom has been meeting with local suppliers (including Charlotte’s Butchery, French Oven, Hodgson Fish and Ken Holland to name a few) to get his hands on the best quality ingredients for the new menu.
The menu that Tom has been devising for the Bar Café offers something for everyone, and every budget, from house-made savoury popcorn to soups and salads, a house burger and the Tyneside’s own cinema hot dog (created in collaboration with Charlotte’s Butchery of Gosforth) with average prices ranging from £7 - £12.
