Newmarket Street right here in Consett is the home to one of our town’s newest and exciting venues. Bar 1898 is a new establishment which aims to bring an upmarket drinking and dining experience to Consett. Alongside the great selection of classic cocktails on offer, Bar 1898 also have a fantastic selection of food to tickle the taste buds of even the most particular of pallets.
After finding a seat in the beautifully furnished venue, I started my night by having one of the expertly crafted cocktails from the bar. With classics such as the Long Island Ice Tea, Lynchburg Lemonade and the Cosmopolitan all available you can be sure there will be a refreshing mixed drink to quench your thirst.
The menu had a wide selection of regular and vegetarian starters which included the excellent mixed sharing platter with home-made chicken goujons, crispy onion rings, battered prawns, garlic bread and succulent chicken wings. This high quality platter was the perfect start for a group heading out for a few drinks and a bite to eat.
For your main course there are a whole host of different options for whatever mood you are in. There are gourmet choices such as the crispy battered prawns presented in a truly classy manner or if you are after something simpler, you can go for the pulled pork sandwich, a burger or even a pizza.
If you are looking for somewhere a bit different in Consett to grab a bite to eat and some drinks then you should definitely head to Bar 1898 and see what they have to offer.
