Just visited this establishment for the very first time and it was great. Very generous portions, good price and quality service, exactly what you want when dining out. Will definitely be returning for future celebrations. We enjoyed an afternoon being part of a group celebrating not only a 10th wedding anniversary but also an 80th Birthday, beautiful pub and a...

My father and I came to have lunch here on Wednesday 2nd April before going to see my mother in hospital. Going by past experience, I thought we would have a quick, delicious meal and be on our way in good time. Unfortunately, this was not the case. You could not have called the place full. There were 3 small... More

The Northumbrian Piper is a great venue located a few miles out of Newcastle city centre. The surroundings are lovely and the venue has a relaxed 'country pub' feel to it. We visited on a Monday night to sample the food and the quiz!!! We weren't disappointed, the service was great, the food was lovely (good portion size) and it... More

Decided to visit here for Sunday lunch after reading good reviews. The place was easy to find and well signposted. Looked nice as we pulled up and headed in.

Fantastic home cooked food. Everything is fresh and amazing flavours from every dish we tried. Think this place will now become a regular for evening meals and Sunday roast.
