Gusto Newcastle | Sunday Lunch Review

*AD - we worked with Gusto on an Instagram campaign for North East Family Fun in Autumn 2022 but were not asked to write this post.  This post has been published by Steve. 

Who doesn't love a Sunday Roast? The Meat, the Gravy, the Yorkshire puds, so good. We took the boys to Gusto on Newcastles Quayside to try their new Sunday Roast Menu. The menu has lots to choose from with both classics roasts and some altenative dishes.

We are all about the classics so the boys both went for the kids Beef Sunday Roast while Sam and myself had the Sunday Sharing Roast. The portion sizes are plentyful and even the kids dishes were pretty good but its not somehwere to come for quick meal as we had to wait 40 mins for our meals to arrive. 

The Kids meals come with a good helping of beef (served pink), a big yorkshire pudding, Chantanay Carrots, Roast Potatoes, red cabbage and savoy cabbage. The kids roast is only £8..95 and includes an Ice Cream dessert which i think is pretty good value. 

The Sharing Sunday Roast is £42.95 for two and can can add extra portions for £21.95 so it is quite pricey but you do get a massive portion. You get a decent helping of meat with a selection of Sirloin of Beef, Roast Chicken, Pancetta Style Pork, Crackling and a 3-Meat Ragu Shepards pie.

Along with the meat you also get two Yorkshire Puddings, Chantanay Carrots, Red Cabbage, Winter Greens, Roast Potates and Parsnips as well as Cauliflower Carbonara and a big jug of gravy.

The Veggies were all as you would expect but the Cauliflower Carbonara was a great twist on Cauliflower Cheese delicious melting cheese and pancetta.

I was dispponited with the crackling, this is usually my favoirite part of a roast but this crackling was not crunchy it was just hard and almost inedible but the meats more than made up for this with the beef being particularly good.

The highlights though were the Cauliflower Carbonara and the 3-Meat Ragu Shepards Pie which was so rich and flavoursome with very creamy mash on top and offered something a little different to other Sunday Sharing Boards we have tried in the past. 

The good thing about Gusto being on the Quayside is after a big Sunday meal like this you can then walk it off with a wander around the Quayside Market or you could cross over to the BALTIC and check out their current exhibitions (it's free).
