I used to live in Newcastle and recently returned to visit friends,I researched on trip advisor and decided that the Northumbrian piper sounded good and booked it for dinner,after all the food was described as excellent.
There were 3 of us, on a Tuesday night, it was dead, with only one other table occupied.
The decor was tired. The menu was not bad with a reasonable choice.
I ordered salmon and my other 2 guests ordered ribeye steak.
The service was slow, but we were not in a rush so that was ok.
My salmon was ok it came with a nice salad but the chips were blackened and limp.
My guests told me that the steaks were tough and not good, again their chips were blackened
One of us had dessert which he said was good.
We were disappointed and would not return.
I was disappointed bearing in mind the reviews I had read.
