Julie Burniston has rounded up a selection of fun and frivolous gifts – plus we’ve thrown in a
couple of cool things to do and delicious places to eat. Dig in!

 

INDULGE HIM…

Father's Day Tomahawk

Head to Newcastle’s Quayside for the ultimate steak dinner.

Tomahawk serves the finest Himalayan salt dry-aged steaks, Wagyu and other great local meat, fish and vegetarian dishes, but for a real treat, opt for a mega Sunday lunch.

All mains are served with herb and pork stuffing, beef dripping roasties, cauliflower cheese, Yorkshire pudding, savoy cabbage, seasonal vegetables, roasted parsnips and carrots plus bottomless 24hr red wine gravy.

Push the boat out with a legendary Sunday Sharing Board with a choice of three types of meat (dry-aged roasted beef rump, roast chicken breast marinated in garlic and herbs, roast pork loin served with crispy crackling or roast minted lamb).

Finish off with the iconic Tomahawk Bombe, served with vanilla ice cream, toasted marshmallows and hot salted caramel sauce.

WHET HIS APPETITE…

Father's Day Panis

At Panis in High Bridge, Newcastle.

Opened in 1995 as the first true Italian/Sardinian café, Panis has served traditional Sardinian foods but has never stopped innovating and making exciting Sardinian-themed dishes.

Take your dad away from today’s hectic lifestyle and offer him the chance to linger over dishes that use the finest and freshest ingredients, imported directly from Italy or from locally-sourced suppliers.

The menu is to die for, with a plethora of amazing pasta, meat and fish dishes, not to mention a sweet trolley to thrill the sweetest tooth.
