Perched high atop the BALTIC Centre for Contemporary Art, Six provides an unique dining experience in Newcastle. Not only does this sleek, modern restaurant serve up mouthwatering modern British bistro fare, but it also offers staggering panoramic views of Newcastle’s vibrant quayside and beyond.
As you step into Six, you can’t help but be captivated by the mesmerising cityscape before you. It’s an atmosphere that invites conversation, contemplation, and of course, indulgence in the finest, sustainably-sourced local ingredients that the region has to offer.
The team behind the restaurant, Newcastle-based Fresh Element, has a deep-rooted commitment to sustainability. This commitment is evident in the carefully crafted menu that revolves around sustainable, locally sourced ingredients. Each dish is a testament to the dedication and passion of the team behind the scenes, who work tirelessly to ensure that the flavours of the season are perfectly captured and showcased. The menu at Six is ever-evolving, ensuring that diners are consistently treated to fresh and innovative culinary delights.
Previous highlights on the menu have included dishes that celebrate the best of British cuisine, while also paying homage to the rich agricultural heritage of the North East. By sourcing ingredients directly from local suppliers such as Hepple Gin, Allendale Brewery, Broomhouse Farm, Herb Fed Poultry, Acorn Dairy, and Northumberland Horticultural Training Unit, the restaurant is able to guarantee unparalleled quality and flavour, all while minimising its ecological footprint and supporting the local economy.
In addition to its commitment to sustainability, Six has also embraced the ‘Eat Local’ campaign, an initiative designed to raise awareness of the benefits of buying locally sourced ingredients and encouraging people to consider where their food comes from. By offering seasonal dishes in various portion sizes, the restaurant aims to reduce food waste and further promote the idea of responsible dining. As part of this commitment, information on the sources of the ingredients used in each dish is readily available for customers who are curious about the origins of their meal.
This dedication to sustainability extends to every aspect of the business, from the investment in a new, environmentally friendly kitchen to the promotion of sustainable practices such as minimising food waste and recycling. The team believes that businesses should contribute positively to their environment and strives to find creative solutions to the challenges of balancing profit with long-term good.
Six’s offerings are not limited to its exceptional dinner menu. The restaurant also features a fantastic value lunch and early evening menu, perfect for those looking for a quick bite, a post-work catch-up, or a pre-show meal. The selection of dishes is carefully curated, with the same attention to detail and focus on quality as the main menu.
