We have been along to Cookhouse and Pub in Holystone, Newcastle again, and we’ve not only sampled the new Autumn menu, but also have a discount code to share with you so that you can have a massive 40% off your visit. This code is valid at any Cookhouse & Pub location around the country, not just the Newcastle venue.
This was our review of the 2018 menu; click here to read about the new autumn menu for 2019.
The new menu has halloumi fries, brekkie flatbreads, tasty pub classics and a ‘crownie’ – a cookie/brownie hybrid!
To start Rob picked a classic prawn cocktail. He had it last time and thought he wouldn’t be able to beat such an enjoyable dish with anything else on the menu! There were loads of options to choose from, including a very delicious, beautifully cooked scallops with bacon, which I enjoyed. My starter was served with two warm, fresh sticks of bread, which worked wonderfully for mopping up the oil.
Autumn menu main courses in Cookhouse and Pub
I tried one of the 11-inch flatbreads (£5.99 – £8.49), which are long-time favourites from Cookhouse & Pub. The toppings I went for were part of the new Autumn menu – succulently pulled lamb with roasted vegetables. It has little blobs of hummus, mozzarella and loads of veggies heaped on the flatbread. The flatbreads are cooked to order in the flaming oven. It’s tricky to eat since it’s got a lot of “wet” ingredients, but you get a pizza wheel so you can cut it as big or as small as you like to manage the flatbread!
Rob ate a classic mixed grill (£12.49), but “poshed it up a bit” by adding the 8oz sirloin steak, which is an option on the menu for an extra £2.99. It arrived cooked exactly how he’d asked for it, and the sauce he’d picked was much too good for our gravy-loving son to share any!
Desserts in Cookhouse Pub
To finish, we decided to treat ourselves with a chocolate orange sundae for Rob, and a chocolate cherry crownie for me. The crownie (£4.89) was a little rich for me, and the cherry flavour really lovely and strong, but it was no match for Rob – he made short work of his and mine!
Deals at Cookhouse Pub
During the week, Monday – Thursday from 12pm – 5.30pm, Cookhouse and Pub’s ‘daytime deal’ includes two courses for £8.99 or £9.99. There are loads of meals included in this offer, and it’s such good value.
There is also a range of new drinks, such as a mojito with a twist including flavours of strawberry, peach or passionfruit. If you wish, you can sip on gins like Gordon’s Pink and Tanqueray Seville orange served with Fever Tree’s Mediterranean tonic (one of my favourite drinks) or unwind with chilled brews including Brewdog Punk IPA, Wychwood’s Hobgoblin Gold and Hop House. Alas, I didn’t try any of these (good excuse to go back, I think) since I stuck to a good old glass of Rioja.
