McKenna's at Northern Stage is the theatre's award-winning restaurant and bar.

Depending on the time of day, you can drink coffee and read the paper, join the busy lunchtime crowd or enjoy a pre-show meal and drink while you socialise with thespians. Breakfast can be picked up between 10am and 12noon if you fancy a bacon sandwich or a full vegetarian breakfast and McKennas wide range of coffee and teas are all fair trade.

During the day, the foyer area serves wholesome lunchtime sandwiches, with Cajun Chicken with Mozarella & Chilli, and Lemon Roasted Sicilian Vegetables & Rocket proving most popular amongst the Northern Stage staff. There's also a huge tapas menu (which caters brilliantly for vegetarians) with everything from calamari, patata bravas and chorizo, to potato skins, hummus and stuffed roasted aubergines.

On most evenings from 5.30pm the upstairs restaurant deck is opened to the public and the Bistro Menu becomes available. Revised weekly, the food has won the Bistro critical acclaim from various publications. Starters vary from homemade soups to Grilled Black Pudding. For mains you can find anything from Pan Fried Sea Bass and Wilted Greens, to Vegetable Thai Green Curry or Chargrilled Ribeye Steak. Deserts have included Cre Brulee, Lemon Meringue Pie and Apple and Pear Crumble with Custard.

Northern Stage drinking establishment has always been famed for its friendly atmosphere. Many regulars of Newcastle Playhouse have returned to the improved bar to find that they can still talk to actors after a show and carry on drinking into the small hours. McKenna's provides a selection of draught and bottled lagers and bitters, as well as a host of spirits and wines.
