See Fenwick Newcastle’s beautiful new bakery Mason + Rye

Whether you’re hoping to take a shopping break and grab some lunch or catch up with friends over afternoon tea, Fenwick Newcastle’s new bakery-patisserie-café, Mason + Rye, caters to all. 

Focusing on fine patisserie and artisan baking, Mason + Rye has been built with gorgeous contemporary interiors, including timber-clad walls and chalkboard menus.

The star of the show is the theatre bakery (above). Based at the centre of the café, this fun element will allow diners to watch the patisserie team through glass walls as they work hard to create the highest quality vienoiserie cakes, scones and biscuits from a vast menu serving up a wide range of delectable sweet and savoury options.

Mason + Rye’s concept and menu have been created by Fenwick Executive Chef Kelly Richardson, with support from prominent restaurateur Terry Laybourne of the 21 Hospitality Group 

Fenwick Executive Chef Kelly says: “At Fenwick, we have a strong ethos on fresh and premium produce so it’s really important to us that Mason + Rye offers exactly that – a wide variety of top quality goods with a home-baked feel. It’s another exciting venture that we think our customers will love.”
