As students prepare to celebrate their graduation day in Newcastle, several city bars and restaurants will have an added treat in store for them.

There will be free drinks on offer to mark students' exam success and prosecco and cocktails are the tipples of choice to toast those results. Below are just a few of the places across Newcastle with freebies on offer to those making a booking for a graduation meal.

They include new restaurants offering graduates a glass of fizz to popular party bars which will be serving up complimentary cocktails alongside glamorous surroundings for celebratory selfies. And it's worth keeping an eye out for other venues across the city as there no doubt will be plenty more popular bars and restaurants joining in with special offers.

The following free offers apply during graduation weeks from July 8-19. The first two are redeemable against any food or drink bought in the bar or restaurant and are limited - respectively - to one mini bottle or one glass per person.

Dakwala - the city centre's recently-opened old-Bombay-style restaurant in Grainger Street is offering a complimentary mini bottle of prosecco to all graduates who reserve a table for a meal there. Graduates can claim their free fizz between Monday, July 8 and Friday, July 19: see here
