Hopping Across The North East From Hub To Hub

Dads can enjoy a pitch perfect Father’s day


May 26, 2017

The stadium’s events and catering partner, Sodexo Prestige Venues & Events, is holding its annual Father’s Day lunch on Sunday 18 June.

And families can choose either a two or three course table d’hôte meal, prepared by the Newcastle United ground’s award-winning team of chefs.

Starters include carrot and coriander soup, cod and pancetta fishcakes, mini steak pie with mushy peas and hand-made onion bhaji with a yoghurt dressing and seasonal leaves.

These are followed by main courses of Northumbrian beef or slow roasted breast of chicken with Yorkshire pudding, steamed salmon steak with herb cream, or a vegetarian option of deep fried arancini balls with a tomato and a basil sauce.

Lunch will be rounded off with desserts such as chocolate fudge cake, sticky toffee pudding, fresh fruit salad or ice cream, with a cheeseboard available for a £2 surcharge followed by a mini taster tour of the stadium and a gift for all dads as a memento of their special day.

The Father’s Day Lunch at St James’ Park is priced at £18.95 per person for three courses or £15.95 for two, with children aged under 12 dining at half price. Or, for an additional £10 per person, diners can opt for a private executive box overlooking the pitch.

For more information, or to make a reservation, contact St James’s Park on 0191 201 8525 or e-mail candb@nufc.co.uk
