Christmas dinner is a huge part of the big day, but those tasked with crafting and cooking the meal would rather it be left to someone else.

There are plenty of restaurants across Newcastle which are taking bookings for Christmas dinners on 25 December and although some have already filled their availability, there is still a good range of places to eat out if you don’t want to make your own meal for the big day.
