All of our Greggs favourites are being taken to new heights with the launch of a new pop-up restaurant, Bistro Greggs at Fenwick Newcastle this December.

Launching on Friday 1st December, and running to New Year’s Eve, Bistro Greggs will be an all-day dining destination serving breakfast, brunch and lunch dishes from 9am – 8pm.

Drawing interior inspo from the traditional bistros of Saint-Germain, expect white-clothed tables, velvet banquette seating and marble countertops, with dishes served under silver cloches by waiters in Bistro Greggs aprons and traditional white shirts and ties.

But this isn’t just Greggs served on a fancy plate.

The fine dining menu has been specially created by Fenwick Executive Head Chef, Mark Reid, and sees interpretations of our much-loved Greggs items reimagined into gastronomic masterpieces.

All dishes are paired with Fenwick Food Hall wines and a signature cocktail created by award winning bar, Mother Mercy – The Pink Jammie Fizz inspired by Greggs’ hard to resist iconic Pink Jammie doughnut.
