CHOCOLATE CAKE TO DIE FOR

I don't know what to say, how to describe it but The Stand Bistro just popped up as I was leaving a review for somewhere else and I recalled the chocolate dessert I had in here with some coffee on meeting a friend. The staff are really nice, and I think I may have had a hangover, but they were... read more

Lunched with a fellow former PricewaterhouseCoopers partner at this bistro - we both have exacting standards and were bowled over with the quality of the food and its presentation. It punches way above what you might expect from looking through the window, which has the appearance of a good coffee shop. Don't be fooled - come inside and one look... More

The sheer quality of the food draws me back. An ideal night was had by opting for more Christmas fare this time.....beef Wellington and Turkey with just about everything... Melting pastry, hunks of beef and vegetables to die were my choice. After such loveliness I also opted for sticky toffee pudding. Price around £25 all in. Comedy to follow capped... More

Went here for drinks with a couple of friends this last Thursday and was struck with the place. Firstly - we didn't have to eat. Secondly - the bar offered a tab for drinks. How refreshingly trusting and rightly so. Thirdly - the atmosphere in the place. Fourthly - the outside space. I hear that the food is excellent and... More

I love this place. Back again a couple of times recently for their winter offerings and was knocked out the first time by the absolutely beautiful teriyaki salmon with sticky rice and stir fried broccoli. A really healthy size piece of salmon cooked to perfection with crisped up skin (just how I like it!), delicately infused with teriyaki and sitting... More

Pleasantly surprised with how good the food was, best chicken pesto pasta I've ever tasted. Had a nice chilled vibe and even though quite busy service was very quick. I work in Newcastle often, I'll definitely be back.

We popped into the stand on the off chance they had a spare table as it was a Saturday evening and their Bistro was quite busy. Luckily they did and the food did not disappoint! We both went for the Beef Wellington from their Christmas specials...WOW. The food was beautifully cooked and the red wine jus that came with it... More
