Neal’s Yard and Hennart in line-up at revamped Fenwick food hall
Department store chain Fenwick has officially re-opened its flagship Newcastle food hall after a multi-million revamp that has seen it boost both its retail and foodservice offering.
Food Hall buyer Adam Barber said the team has worked on assembling an interesting range of foods across the world for the new food hall, alongside a selection of regional suppliers.
“The food hall has a long and rich history of providing quality food and our revitalised ranges will provide our customers with the fresh, tasty produce and specialist cook provisions that they are looking for,” he said.
The deli has taken on new suppliers, including Neal’s Yard Dairy, French cheese affineur and distributor Hennart, Italian olive oils, balsamic vinegars and pasta brand Cipriani, local artisan coffee roaster Ouseburn Coffee Co and loose-leaf tea company Kusmi Tea. London-based Sous Chef, which specialises in rare ingredients from around the world, will supply 30 products, including Persian blue salt, black lava sea salt and cep powder.
The food hall revamp, which took two years to plan and started in June, includes a new speciality chocolatier alongside a seafood counter, meat and game specialist, artisan bakery and boutique coffee roaster.
Fenwick has also added a Mediterranean wine and charcuterie bar, Fuego, alongside its revamped wine shop, and two restaurants from chef Terry Laybourne: the Saltwater Fish Co and South East Asian street food outlet Ko Sai.
