Maddisons – A family affair!

Back in 2006 Paul and Heather noticed a gap in the market for something a little bit different……a few months later Maddison’s was born. Against all the odds the good citizens of Consett showed a huge interest in the wide selection of drinks and the eclectic menu, voting with their feet as well as their stomachs and beating a path to Maddison’s, making it what it is today!

Paul and Heather weren’t the first to establish an eatery at this location and many people will remember Dimambros that was present from the 1920’s to 1980’s. Since the refurbishment in 2014 they have uncovered many hidden memories that have now been made a feature including four fantastic fireplaces.

Head chef Paul delights in putting his own twist on all styles of eating. Whether it be scones, cakes, burgers, sandwiches, soups or salads, the menu reflects this with quirky little twists. The menu is also put together with a conscious effort to cater for all dietary requirements, meaning there’s something for everyone!

Heather and her front of house team are dedicated to providing a great experience at Maddison’s. You can always count on the best drinks from the bespoke range of coffees, teas, homemade Belgian hot chocolate, ice cream milkshakes, hand made cocktails, wines and craft beers. Paul and Heather’s passion for things a little bit different also reflects in Maddison’s decor where you will find anything from recycled pallet art in the toilets to coffee sacking on the walls upstairs.

With all this said, Maddison’s truly is one of Consett’s finest independent drinks house and eatery!
