I eat here often,and whether its early bird,lunchtime,a la carte,or Sunday lunch, the menus are that bit different to anything offered elsewhere in Whitley Bay/Tynemouth area. Food always of excellent quality and attractively presented. Its a gentle,peaceful place and I find it easy to relax there. Most surprising of all is that it offers VERY GOOD VALUE FOR MONEY, and...

My wife and I and another couple share the same wedding anniversary date and for the last few years have gone as a foursome to the Grapevine to celebrate. We went again last night and had an excellent meal, good service in very pleasant atmosphere.

My partner and I ate here for a birthday celebration on a weeknight. We ordered from the a la carte menu. Restaurant interior was lovely and cosy. Staff were attentive and service was very quick. The food was excellent - very tasty and good portion sizes. We even got given a candle in our dessert! Top quality restaurant. We hope... More

If you want to find a restaurant that looks after you and pulls out every stop to make you welcome this is the place to go. Comfortable sitting area for your drinks while you look at the menu and then spacious dinning area. Food and presentation excellent.t Had friends up from London and they were well impressed by the friendly... More

We were a group of 9 for the early bird offer. The service was very friendly and efficient despite the large group, and the early bird menu was varied and good. Very pleasant house wine too! With 2 or 3 courses each, coffee, wine and service the bill came in at under £20 a head which I would consider great... More

Superb value for money two course menu. We went as a party of eight and service was very good. I would recommend all the starters except ham hock which was the only disappointing starter. Mains were excellent - seafood linguine was delicious packed with a great portion of king prawns. Plenty of choice on the set menu. Surroundings are comfortable... More

First visit since Shaun and Joanne left. Found the atmosphere in the place was very strange. A large arm chair placed in front of the bar/ reception area and our drinks while looking at the menu delivered 10 minutes later from the kitchen! The owner tried very hard to be chatty but quite frankly I found him irritating as we... More

We have been visiting this location over the years under different previous owners and restaurant names so it was good to visit the grapevine with a group of friends recently and find that the food on offer remains consistently good. We thoroughly enjoyed our meal and service provided. The only disappointment and surprise, given the new name of the restaurant,... More

Went here today for the Sunday lunch.. lovely atmosphere, lovely staff.. great choice of food on the menu and a good range of drinks available. Impressed with the cloakroom service as soon as we walked in our coats were hung up. The food was lovely, vegetables cooked perfectly and puddings were scrummy.

We like this place a lot. The only reservation I have in publishing this "review" is that I'd selfishly prefer the cat to stay in the bag thus increasing the possibility of me getting a table last minute, which I just have. I would like maybe a few more people to turn up though, that's the only reason I've given... More
