Tour thrown in whilst on a course at NUFC. The guide was very knowledgable and took the banter very well from the group. Interesting to see the contrast of the luxurious home dressing room compared to the austere away teams. We were taken from the pitch side to the top seats. Whilst NUFC have a great history its a shame... More

I've been fortunate to attend two business events at St James'. Both events were well organised, had excellent acoustics for the speakers and the buffet lunches were superb. Neither event included a tour of the grounds / stadium but attendees still welcomed the unique venue rather than a a bland hotel.

Food and drink so ridiculously priced its a blatant rip off. The product served up on the pitch is woeful. Really not worth bothering unless you are an opposition fan

Went on the stadium tour with a granny, son and myself and we all throughly enjoyed the tour. Richard was our guide for the hour and forty five minutes, he was so knowledgeable and injected some humour in there as well. None of use are massive football fans but it was still brilliant. You get a real look behind the... More

Visited the stadium to see Olympics football and was not impressed, went back to see Newcastle play and still not impressed. It was extremely difficult both times to find which part of the stadium our seats were in. I suppose if you're a regular visitor this would become easier but for an irregular visitor there needs to be better signage.... More

The food was lovely, my lamb was beautifully tender and tasty, but I think the service could (and should) be much better. We were a large group of around 25 people seated over 4 tables. Although we were all seated at the same time one table was being served their starters before another had even placed their order. My table's... More

Did stadium tour on 8.4.15.. Would really recommend this. Tour last 90 minutes, our tour guide Richard was excellent showing us the stadium from top tier right through to dressing rooms and dug outs. Great for kids being able to have photos taking in dressing room next to the players shirts and Richard let them walk down the tunnel to... More
