Poor food and incredibly overpriced

The décor is really sweet but unfortunately it's style over substance. I found the food really poor; my bolognese had the taste of a microwave meal and my partner had a very small portion of chicken that tasted like fish - one of the other members of our party had ordered fish and they'd clearly... read more

This place is more about the bar in its downstairs portion so be warned it isn't a quiet place necessarily. Once us past that it is good, especially for groups. The food is in the money and the place has a pleasant feel. Once you're done with your meal this is one of Newcastle's nicer bars and has a great... More

I booked the terrace bar VIP area for a party which was brilliant. Great staff, own bar and fab view of the stage for the live band. A great time was had by all. Thank you.

Me and two friends came here for a birthday meal and it was absolutely beautiful. The cocktails were just how I like them (strong) and the food was mouth watering. Beautiful restaurant. The only criticism is that the service was quite slow, we ordered drinks as soon as we sat down and we're halfway through starters when the drinks finally... More

My wife and I had supper a couple of weeks ago and whilst the food was very good the portions were small. The steaks were cooked to order, flavoursome and tender but the much vaunted home made chips were very disappointing. The starter of tempura prawns was good but the serving size (three) for the best part of £10 we... More

The food here is great, a wide range to choose from and cooked well. Sadly, the service wasn't so good. There seemed to be only 3 staff working the downstairs area, 2 of which were covering the quiet bar area leaving one person to serve the tables. Whilst it wasn't too busy, there were enough customers there to keep the... More

I love the decor and space here but the food is very overrated. I ordered Cajun crayfish salad. Five little gem leaves in a bowl with two tablespoons of a tasteless mix which was really bland and pretty much absent of crayfish. That was it for £7.95. (My daughter really had a far better and more substantial salad on the... More

Visited the restaurant one Saturday evening with my husband and daughter age 12. good service and really tasty food. The only down side I would say is the restaurant was very drafty and cold, we kept our jackets on. Other than that everything else great. Just make sure wrapped warm before visiting.

Pre booked for a meal during restaurant week. On arrival were taken straight to our table despite It being really busy. All the staff were very friendly, we were served with great food and were made to feel very welcome. Cocktails were class too. From the initial booking to the great value bill, I could fault the place. Recommend 100%
