Greggs teams up with Fenwick on first fine dining bistro

Greggs is collaborating with the Fenwick department store in Newcastle to launch a bistro serving a multi-course menu of fine-dining interpretations of its bakes and sweet treats.

Due to open from 1 December through to New Year’s Eve, Bistro Greggs will be an all-day dining destination that offers brunch and lunch dishes in a Parisian-inspired space on the shop’s first floor.

Tables can be booked in advance, although some will be available for walk-ins. To make sure guests have a fine dining experience, dishes will be served under silver cloches by waiters in Bistro Greggs aprons and traditional white shirts and ties.

Created by Fenwick executive head chef Mark Reid in collaboration with Greggs, the lunch menu will feature duck-fat roasties, smoked pancetta, chestnuts and sprouts, while Greggs’ popular Steak Bake will be taken to new culinary heights by being accompanied by truffled dauphinoise potatoes, green beans and almonds.

Highlights of the breakfast and brunch menu will include “Greggs Benedict” – a Greggs Sausage, Bean and Cheese Melt reimagined with smoked ham, poached Cacklebean eggs and a Hollandaise sauce. In addition, a full English breakfast will include Greggs’ best-selling Sausage Roll as well as bacon, mushroom, tomato, baked beans and a choice of eggs. There will also be vegetarian and vegan versions of the dish.

Meanwhile a “High Tea” for two will offer guests a three-tier sharing brunch featuring Peach Melba, Yum Yum Bites paired with chocolate sauce and banana together with a Greggs Croissant, Pain au Chocolat, Sausage Roll and Sausage, Bean & Cheese Melt. 

Leo Fenwick, strategic partnerships director at Fenwick, said: “Fenwick and Greggs are two brands at the heart of the local community with a commitment to doing good and we are thrilled to be partnering with a much-loved brand, bringing a unique and delicious twist to the everyday Greggs experience at Fenwick.”

Hannah Squirrell, customer director at Greggs, added: “The launch of Bistro Greggs marks a watershed moment as we take our first step with Fenwick into classic French-inspired fine dining. Showcasing popular favourites across our menu, we’ve created an accessible menu featuring eloquent dishes with a Parisian twist, elevated through Fenwick’s gastronomic excellence and expertise.”
