“Good value for familys and meals out”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 15, 2013

Absolutely love Taybarn's. Sometimes can be a hit or miss (due to business) but food is always hot, staff are always polite and it has a nice atmosphere.
I enjoy coming here on occasion as not only am i a fussy eater but so is my partner and my daughter but we always manage to find something that we'll enjoy that's served up by the chefs.
Its great value for money and will be looking forward to my next visit.

This great for the family as kids can eat what they like and also gives an opportunity for them to try new things. Lots of choice and variety.

“Clean, good food, well run”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 26, 2013

Have been told about the Taybarns chain by friends who have used them before with mixed results so we decided to try it for ourselves. Staff are very friendly, helpful and welcoming. All the food is laid out in areas, and very easy to see. Food is not just piled up, staff are continually cooking fresh food and replenishing it as people eat, in doing so nothing is left for hours on end and this includes the salad bar. Fresh plates, knives, forks and spoons every time and the used ones are removed straight away, staff are continually cleaning. We would recommend this Taybarns, it is good, well cooked food, very clean, and well presented, and unusual for this type of restaurant you are not rushed, in fact you are encouraged to take your time and enjoy your meal(s)

“Value for money at Swalwell Taybarns.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 17, 2013

As a visitor to Gateshead this restaurant was just across the road from where we were staying so decided to give it a go rather than getting lost late at night. So glad we did. Warm friendly greeting on our entrance to the restaurant and after ordering our drinks we were shown the huge choice of food on offer. Everything from Chinese, Indian and pizza's to salads, carvery and barbecue, all freshly cooked in front of you. Restaurant was clean and bright, staff very efficient and eager to help. Food was hot and great value for money maybe not the best food we've ever had but for £20.00 for two courses each plus drinks you cannot go wrong. Just wish Taybarns had a branch here in the south........

“Cheap tasteless food ....”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed September 16, 2013

Visited taybarns ... Just to see what the fuss is about,
I know it's cheap ... But I thought the food would have been a little more appetising ...

When we first went in , the staff were awesome . .. Very attentive ... We paid £5.99 for our food and nearly £3 for a glass that you could refill your pop ...

Good value !! Couldn't believe the price ...

We could sit where we wanted,

We started with the soup... Had tomatoe , not nice at all ...
Had to leave it ... Then I went back & tried different things ...

The Chinese dishes were very greasy and tasted dreadful..

My partner said the meats / grill was lovely .. He had burger, bacon steaks and sausages ... The corn on the cobs were nice.. Overall ....

I tried a few things ..... Which I didn't like much ... BUT
I can't fault the Sunday lunch & the sweet area ....

There were 2 different meats ... Gammon & turkey ... The staff gave me a generous amount when carving it ....
Meat , puddings , mash , peas , stuffing , carrots , cabbage , roast pots , gravy and mint sauce and cranberry ...

I really enjoyed it x x x x x

Then the sweet area .. Mmm the apple pie & custard ... Beautiful and warm ... Next to the pop area was an ice cream machine ... This was nice to ...

I don't mean to be a downer on taybarns ... But you can pay a little extra and other all you can eats are much much better ...

To pay £17 for 2 people to only eat a little bit and fill up on things you don't fancy isn't my cup of tea ...

But at least we tried it ....

I say .... Try it yourself , each to there own taste buds ....

I just would rather pay that little bit extra for taste ...

I normally up load pics from my journeys to places ... But we didn't stay long enough & I wasn't that excited to take any ... :(
