I have visited only during the day, never in the evening so I cannot speak of its place in the evening scene in Newcastle.
It is a bright cheerful welcoming place. One big plus for me is that , unlike most Bars in the Northeast, one can sit down and someone will come to take an order.
There is a separate dining area overlooking the main ground floor area. The menu is quite interesting and caters for a wide range of tastes from snack to three courses. Prices reflect its situation, just a short walk from the Monument and the Theatre Royal.
