The Dining Society is back this Christmas with ‘Dine On The Tyne’

Unique outdoor dining pods set to return to Newcastle’s Quayside this winter

The popular festive dining experience, The Dining Society, will be returning to Urban Garden on Newcastle’s Quayside this winter, offering customers a cosy escape where they can enjoy food from award winning restaurant Fusion with family, friends and colleagues.

Looking out over the stunning views of Newcastle’s iconic bridges, the custom-made transparent dining pods – complete with indoor heating, a personal speaker system and free Wi-Fi – will be pitching up on the 17th November on the former site of the ‘Quayside Seaside’, opposite the Newcastle Law Courts. 

The pods, which allow groups to dine in their own private restaurant for the evening, will be a welcome retreat and offer a unique experience as people celebrate the festive season.

Hosting up to ten guests per pod, diners will have the chance to enjoy a banquet over an hour and a half with the price of £45 per person with one of the most amazing vistas in the UK.

Organised by The Dining Society which has established itself as a mainstay on Newcastle’s Christmas calendar since its launch in 2018, since attracting over 50,000 diners to enjoy its varying menus.

Augusta Gilchrist, of The Dining Society, said: “We’re making Christmas 2022 bigger and better than ever and we’re confident that everyone will love what we have in store. It has been an incredibly difficult year for everyone, so hopefully this will allow family and friends to end 2022 on a high

In previous years we have gone with a more traditional Christmas menu but we want to keep developing and evolving the experience so pairing up with Fusion who people will know from Ramside Hall will step up the food offering and offer something different for our regular customers this Christmas.

Dining while looking out on the iconic views of the Tyne and Millennium Bridge was a highlight for so many last year so we’re really happy to be back.

We want to create the perfect Christmas night out for families, friends, and colleagues. We’re really excited to offer this unique experience and look forward to opening on Thursday 17th November.”

Bookings will be on sale from Wednesday 26th October from 5pm.
