James Picton, managing director of Tapas Revolution says: “We have had ambitions to open within the Metrocentre for a while now and with the North East having such a rich historic culture and a diverse food scene, we feel the Tapas Revolution brand, culture and flavours will sit perfectly here.

"It’s so important to us that we take time to search for the right location, and I’m delighted that our new restaurant within the Qube at the Metrocentre fits the bill perfectly.

“We pride ourselves in creating a menu full of flavours and Mediterranean culture, serving dishes that taste like tapas you experience in Spain, alongside our authentic Spanish hospitality, the relaxed vibe at Tapas Revolution centres around Spain’s culinary culture of sharing, socialising and eating.

An array of cocktails and sangria will be on offer.An array of cocktails and sangria will be on offer.
