This week, we were kindly invited along to River Beat on Wednesday to try their Vegan Tapas menu. The venue is located on the Gateshead side of the river, just down from the Hilton hotel. We had walked past a few times on our Quayside explorations, but never went in. Since we both went vegan, we have been increasingly hesitant to try new places in town, unless they have been recommended to us by vegan friends or on the North East Vegan and Vegetarians Facebook Group. Up until now, we had no idea that River Beat not only catered to vegans, but had an entirely vegan page in their menu. In fact, they offer 3 for £10 on all vegan tapas on a Wednesday night – a midweek treat you’d be mad to miss.
