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

We went to this restaurant today (21st Dec 2013) to celebrate my husbands birthday.I cannot fault anything at all. The food was just perfect and the service was superb. The staff are so friendly and welcoming and I loved the fact that at no point did we feel rushed. I noticed repeat customers coming in and the staff remembered their... More

Our annual pre christmas outing with a group of 10 friends. The first group visit since the change of name, although several meals there as a couple have also been great. The new decor was suitably enhanced for the festive season creating a warm and friendly atmosphere. Our window seating allowed us to change places between courses without disturbing fellow... More

We have now visited this restaurant several times since its change of name to the Grapevine.The food and service and ambience are second to none. An extensive a la Carte menu is reasonably priced and the two course early bird menu (£9-95) is varied and excellent value for money. An ideal choice for special occasions, family celebrations, business lunches and... More

Should have listened to friends who had been the night before and gave a guarded and rather lukewarm account of their experience. The fact is that if you walk through Whitley Bay town centre looking for a decent restaurant you are rather relieved when you see the Grapevine, as it is now called. It looks good and the decor is...

This is the second review I'm submitting for this restaurant, now called Grapevine. Feel I got to say that it just seems to get better. Love the choices on the menu and the 'early bird' price option is excellent. Food have been very tasty and the staff are great. Believe they have another chef newly appointed, we used to go... More
