Went to Newcastle recently on a work trip, was recommended this place by a taxi driver. Staff are really friendly, pizza is decent. Good value for money.

Great restaurant in the old part of the city with a great atmosphere and great freshly cooked food. Friendly staff, sea bass so light and refreshing and the meatball pasta was full of flavour, highly recommended.

Been for our get together. We enjoyed it. We had some pasta and pizza. I love my seafood pasta and my friend live her pizza. A bit disappointed with the crispy chicken and potato skins. Not crispy. Staffs are nice. Prices are reasonable. Thumbs up.

This is a really nice restaurant, built into the supports of the bridge across the Tyne so quirky interior and layout. Staff were interactive and humorous without being intrusive, attentive and basically very good. Hence the big tip. Food was nice, rich but festive and...More
