We love driving to Newcastle just to have dinner at Percy french, its right on the sea front, lovely when the fire is lit, could be a bit expensive for some but its worth every penny spent, love sitting outside in the summer with a glass of wine, you feel like youre on holiday!

We visited Percy French last night and the food was excellent. I also ordered an impressive cocktail and the wine list was good. Our food was delicious and the service was exceptional. The staff are a credit to the Slieve Donard hotel. We would highly recommend the restaurant and will definitely be back upon our return to Newcastle.
