���Tyne and dine��� at Newcastle���s Bridge Restaurant, with its spectacular views over the River Tyne and the soaring arc of the Tyne Bridge. The restaurant is in the Vermont Hotel, a Manhattan-style 1930s tower right next to the remains of the city���s medieval castle and close to the revitalised Quayside area. Start with marinated herring with crisp pancetta and honey-mustard vinaigrette or the more substantial confit duck and red onion tart tatin. Then dig in to baked lamp rump with minted lentils and garlic potatoes, or pan-seared wild salmon, braised spring cabbage and clam casserole.You may think you���ll be able to resist the milk chocolate cr��me br��l��e with Bailey���s ice-cream, but that���s only because you���ll fall for the steamed lemon sponge with vanilla cr��me fra��che instead.

Thanks Mum!

This has been here for a good few years and the lack of reviews suggests it is either not that popular or people review it under "Vermont Hotel". We were here as my Mum had bought us a voucher for the £69 wine and dine last Christmas. (3 courses for 2 people plus a bottle of French wine). And... read more

That was our first visit but will certainly not be the last. We went to celebrate our engagement and when we were shown to our table they had decorated it which was such a special touch. We both had three courses and all the dishes were presented beautifully and tasted amazing. Again a special touch for our pudding they had... More

As per my review of the hotel, the Bridge restaurant is highly recommended. Dinner menu choice very good. They do a 3 course meal for 2 including a bottle of good French wine for £69.

Good value for money and huge portions. Staff were very friendly and helpful. The selection of food on the menu was great. The duck salad to start should have been warm but all other food was fab. I can recommend the Sea Breem or Beef. We'll be returning.

Took my nephew for Sunday lunch and was very impressed, from the wonderful décor, to friendly and efficient staff, to the lovely food and tremendous value for money. We had a drink in the lounge while perusing the menu, we were eating quite late and afternoon tea was being served, I will definitely return to try an afternoon tea. The... More
