Newcastle Quayside revival

Newcastle Quayside wine-bar and restaurant St Vincent will re-open next week – three years after closing down when the Covid pandemic struck. Owner Terry Laybourne (pictured centre, with Martin Malinowski, left, and Matt Clarkson), has already reopened the other venues in his 21 Hospitality Group.

He said: “It feels wonderful to be finally re-opening St Vincent after such a long break. The hospitality sector has gone through a rollercoaster period these last two to three years. We haven’t stood still though during that period – opening Café 21 in Fenwick York and establishing the beer garden at The Broad Chare, as well as continuing our 21@Home collection service. We have been carefully managing and building our resources – St Vincent is the final piece of the jigsaw. 

“We are re-opening St Vincent with a super-strong core team of familiar faces along with some lovely, enthusiastic new recruits. Customers will be able to enjoy some old favourites they may remember from previous visits; plus, we’ve used the preparation time to freshen things and create some new, less familiar options. 

“We will have a concise, ever-changing menu with a seasonal focus, quite often influenced by the punchy flavours of southern France and Italy that we all seem to love so much.”

St Vincent is next door to Newcastle’s Live Theatre, and will reintroduce pre-theatre drinks and fixed-priced meals on evenings when there is a show.
