Working lunch Launched For Newcastle businesses

Working lunch Launched For Newcastle businesses 

Office workers in Newcastle are being encouraged to take a working lunch thanks to a new menu being launched by Blackfriars Restaurant.

Blackfriars’ Working Lunch is designed around the busy executive with a speedy one course, complimentary WIFI, notes and pens, plus free use of the meeting room when a minimum of six people book lunch in advance.

From just £8 for an award-winning dish and drink, workers will have the choice of a specially designed lunch menu that includes North Sea fishcakes, wilted spinach and parsley sauce, Northumberland corned-beef Panacalty with seasonal vegetables, Roast butternut and sage risotto and Roast chicken salad with roast squash, broccoli, shoots and seeds.

With a hectic schedule there is a temptation to work behind the desk with a sandwich but going out to eat can help business people to benefit from exercise, gain perspective on difficult problems, boost creativity, build team morale and enhance business with clients or suppliers.

Ruth Hall, general manager of Blackfriars said: “We know that as a business person, there is little time to relax whilst in the work place but workers can be much more productive in a relaxed environment.  Having lunch out of the office is good for business and we hope to facilitate this process with great food, atmosphere and service.

The deal costs £8 for a one course lunch and soft drink or £10 for a one course lunch or glass of house wine or beer.
