Head over to High Street East and pull up a chair at the newly-refurbished Boars Head Bistro.
Most famous for their breathtaking views over the River Wear, the bistro first opened in 1724 as a watering hole for passing sailors.
Fast forward a little while, and it has been fully transformed into a modern restaurant with an enticing atmosphere. Go here for all kinds of fabulous seafood dishes.
Don’t be fooled by D’Acqua’s fine Italian menu – they also know a thing or two when it comes to cooking up the nation’s favourite dish!
A much-loved foodie hangout in the city centre, we’re usually drooling over their pasta and risotto, but it’s the Samson Ale battered fresh cod, chunky chips, mushy peas and tartare sauce combination that has really got our hearts beating this September!
