Catch Seafood Ponteland is the third Catch site, the others being located in West Vale and Holmfirth, West Yorkshire. Sarah Stuttle (Managing Director) said “I am originally from Newcastle and opening a site close to where I grew up has been a dream come true. We have had a fantastic first year in Ponteland and experienced a real Geordie welcome! We are honoured to have won Hotel Restaurant of the Year at The Food Awards 2018. This is great recognition for the site and down to the hard work of all our team, producing delicious food and exceptional customer service.”
