First as Le Provencal ,then as Bays Bistro ,and then The Grapevine, I can honestly say that I was never served a sub standard meal over many years. What is wrong with diners who don't appreciate a varied menu,good quality food, friendly atmosphere, and overall a civilised experience? Where can I eat locally now that this gem is no longer...

Just heard via email that Grapevine is ceasing trading and it will be a great loss to Whitley Bay. The reasons I know not but it was an excellent restaurant having homemade food, excellent service and a very nice ambience.

This was one of my favourite eating places. Beautiful food and lovely management and staff. I'm guessing that one of the reasons it has closed is due to location - not many people seemed to know it was there! I hope they will open up another restaurant somewhere locally as I will miss it's unique menu very much - perhaps... More

Amazing hidden gem of a place in Whitley Bay. We came up from London to visit family only to have an amazing authentic Italian meal. Great wine and all at a great price. I cannot recemend this place enough.

If you’re looking for delicious food, friendly efficient service and a lovely room - where you can talk to each other and actually hear what is being said without people having to shout at the top of their voice - then the Grapevine is definitely worth a visit. I’ve been here a few times now, for evening meals and Sunday... More

As always, everything cooked to perfection, a relaxed, unhurried atmosphere and attentive but un-intrusive staff who cannot do enough to please. Highly recommended for a laid back, enjoyable, unhurried and excellent Sunday Lunch ! I just wished Inhadn't eaten the delicious bread which curbed my appetite! Thank you and will come back again!

Prebooked a table for a family lunch - 6 adults and 2 toddlers. The food was really good although as it was a Sunday, a limited menu of one fish dish and traditional Sunday lunch was available. Starters and desserts were limited on choice but all of the party agreed they were very good - one of the best tiramisu... More

I visited the Grapevine mid-week and thoroughly enjoyed the evening from start to finish. The restaurant is tastefully decorated with a charming ambience and, although I usually dine alone, I always feel totally comfortable in the Grapevine. I received a very warm welcome from Peter the owner and was looked after very well by the staff throughout my meal. The... More
