The Quayside caters for all tastes whether for a stroll and a coffee. Or drinks and a quick bite to eat. To a more upmarket fine dining experience. The choices are amazing. With views to match of the river Tyne's iconic bridges.

Down for a wedding this was our first visit to Newcastle. From our hotel window we had a great view of the Tyne Bridge, Armadillo and Swing Bridge so, on a beautiful warm sunny Saturday morning, we walked down to and along the front at the river. Families, tourists and that afternoon's football supporters ambled along in a relaxed holiday... More

Imaginatively restored and developed quayside. Pleasant, quiet and pedestrian only area with great views of the iconic Tyne and Millennium Bridges.

The Quayside has improved immensely over the years and is now a good place to wine and dine both at lunchtime and in the evenings. It is a good place for a walk and National Cycle Route 72 travels alongside. There is also the option of crossing the Millennium Bridge to Gateshead

The Quayside should not be missed when visiting Newcastle. It offers some fantastic views of the Sage and the Baltic and of course the famous bridges. You can have a pleasant stroll alongside the river, there are even sundecks for relaxing near the Millennium Bridge. I saw a lot of cyclists too. Some nice places for a coffee during the... More

I've always had a nice meal here and I love stowford press cider and its one of the few places in Newcastle to serve it so that will always get a plus off me

Excellent for a leisurely stroll or a jog with a magnificent view of the many bridges in Newcastle. Go to the pitcher and piano for a quick drink or just walk across the bridge to to visit the sage. Check out the Sunday market too.

I work quite close to The Quayside, and on the odd busy day, i'll take a stroll down and walk along. The fresh air, the noise, the view and the serenity add to a fantastic place and just leaning against the bars and looking out can really give one peace. There are some fabulous restaurants, a few bars and pubs,... More
