The Tanners Arms has unveiled its new summer offering, which includes an enticing combo of brunch, burgers and banging street art on its new rooftop terrace. Here’s the lowdown.

You could call The Tanners Arms a gateway to the Ouseburn valley (known as Newcastle’s hip cultural quarter) with the pub situated atop Stepney Bank, on Byker Bridge.

Its Sunday lunches are regularly touted as the best in Newcastle. Just check Insta, Facebook and Google for the rave reviews.

And, in case you didn’t know, its sister company The Scranners Arms has also made a name for itself at the infamous Battle of the Burger events at Wylam Brewery – winning two years in a row!

New rooftop terrace

So, let’s start with the pub’s new roof terrace. It’s located up a flight of stairs to the rear of The Tanners Arms and it’s both heated and covered – essentials for any UK outdoor space!

It’s small but oozes ultra-cool vibes. A vibrant mural with punchy purples and orange hues is strewn across the walls (created by local street artist Sune), offset by lightsaber-style lighting.

The terrace is available for private bookings too, ideal for small celebrations and get-togethers.

The award-winning Radgie Burger

The new summer menu has a bumper offering, including the new Radgie Box and Byker Brunch.

The Radgie Box is crammed with all kinds of tasty, ‘picky’ food coated in a crisp Japanese-style batter, made from a top secret recipe crafted by head chef, Stuart Hann.

When the lid pops open, you’re greeted by a mound of chicken wings, crunchy pork belly bites, salt and chilli fries, and the centrepiece: the award-winning Radgie Chicken Burger served in a squishy bun. Oh, and a dinky pot of thick curry sauce for all your dipping desires!

Ridge Box

The team from The Scranners Arms served more than 3000 miniature Radgie sliders at this year’s Battle of the Burger contest, averaging 2.6 burgers prepared, cooked and sold every minute.

If you were lucky enough to scran this naughty but nice creation over the Easter weekend – now’s your chance to devour a full-sized version!

It’s messy. It’s moreish. It’s drizzled in all kinds of deliciousness. And the Radgie Box is only £15. You can even order it on Uber Eats.

The Byker Brunch

The pub’s new Byker Brunch, as you might expect, is different from the brunch menus you’ll find elsewhere in the Toon.

Keen to put their own edgy, street food-inspired spin on traditional brunch dishes, you’ll find ‘posh trays‘ (think the Full English and Full Veggie), greasy spoon fry ups and buns, and all things toast such as the Ham Hock Monsieur. Plus, a variety of loaded hash browns for something extra on the side. It all sounds delish, and I can’t wait to give it a try on my next visit.

Boozy cocktails

Fancy a boozy brunch? Choose from four Bloody Mary’s, including the Ploughman’s, garnished with a slice of Scotch egg, pickled apple, cheddar cheese, and pickles. Definitely one for the ‘gram!

You can also sip on a Breakfast Marg, Aperol Spritz or, my personal highlight, the Megamosa – a refreshing blend of fizz, orange juice, lime and a dash of grenadine.

Their regular cocktail menu also features popular drinks such as the Honey & Lemon Whiskey Sour, Negroni and Gin Ting.
