Beautiful food

Great place to eat especially if you are a vegetarian or vegan, great atmosphere and lovely staff. Reasonably priced as well perfect for special occasions plus it has the benefit of the comedy club below which makes for a great night out.

Visited The Strand with a group of work colleagues on the back of good reviews. Service couldn't be faulted - polite, attentive and personable. The food, though, didn't quite live up to our high expectations- all a bit dry and bland - the duck needed a sauce (could we have ordered one, not sure?) and the fish was, well,... Just... More

We decided to eat here before a comedy show downstairs - the evening menu is quite small, and I was a little disappointed that the sandwich menu only runs until 5pm. The staff were very attentive and friendly, and didn't hassle us even though our whole party hadn't arrived straight away. I ordered the fish and chips, which was nice... More

Great food but If you are in a hurry probably not the best place to go. We sat outside in the back garden and it was really lovely. We ordered sandwiches which were delicious but it took 50 minutes for them to arrive. I will most definitely be going back just not on my lunch break!

I must admit I have yet to tryout the comedy club but always have time for the bistro. I came upon The Stand when I first arrived in Newcastle and decided to find somewhere to eat. I often see what the daily specials are but with a menu that offers plenty of variety I have yet to be disappointed. Friendly... More

Attended the comedy club this evening and ate burgers and chips in the club downstairs. Really nice and excellent value for money. Loads of French fries in dish, in fact shared out as couldn't eat them all! Others had veggie dish with wedges which they said was delicious. Been going her now since it opened, both in the club and... More

Each was excellent clearly locally sourced and delicious. The vibe is great here really friendly and helpful staff. I shall eat here as soon... More

My partner decided we would do something different on this day, so we got two tickets to 'The Bright Club' event at The Stand. This was supposed to be comedy for the more intellectual. It was, but this review is not about how funny The comedians were or how smart I am, it's about the food upstairs. After roaming around... More

I've eaten at The Stand about 5 times for dinner over the past 3 years or so and have been really impressed every time. This weekend was no exception- really friendly, attentive staff, an interesting menu and a great atmosphere. A really nice change from the carnage going on in the surrounding streets on a Saturday night! The four of... More

We had an amazing meal - all the starters, mains and desserts were delicious. The Vietnamese Pho had layer upon layer of flavour. The jus (or gravy to us ordinary folk) on the Ox Cheek was ridiculously tasty. And as for the Banoffee Pie, well it had us in raptures - even though we only shared one between four because... More
