Went to this restaurant as it was so high in the Tripadvisor rankings. Number 1 when I chose it, number 2 today. I ordered the special burger from the chalkboard while my partner had beef soup from the daily menu. My partner’s soup was more like a thick wallpaper paste than a soup though it tasted OK, my burger was tiny. It was only after I checked with the chalkboard again that I realised I had potato wedges not fries as in the menu and the promised onion rings were just that. Promised but missing.
So I’m unsure how this place gets its Tripadvisor rating. If you want a burger you could do much better at the Forth pub in town and either the Brandling Arms or Bistro 95 in the nearby suburb of Gosforth. And that’s ignoring the excellent and long-standing staple restaurants of the Newcastle scene such as the reliable and excellent value Francesca’s.
