We ate at this restaurant early evening last week and can't recommend it enough. The food was just incredible, we had three courses and throughly enjoyed every single one. The quality of the food was outstanding and some of the best we've ever tasted. The...staff were so attentive and friendly and helped to make it a 5 star experience. They had done everything possible to make it COVID safe and the measures they put in place didn't deter anything from what a great evening it was! Thank you to all the staff, we can't wait to return!More

We have visited this establishment a number of times over recent years and this will be our last, each time my experience has been worse than the one before. A visit with family and food was bland, staff inexperienced with a distinct lack of customer...attention. There was no atmosphere, no buzz and the staff inc what appeared to be management just lounging around with miserable faces. A trip to the toilet with our little boy was an awful experience, dirty, wet floors, certainly not clean or hygienic for adults let alone a child. A huge shame that it has got to this stage as we had our engagement party here earlier in the year so it should be a place we have found memories of. We’ve also brought our kids each year to events they’ve had on. Sadly the current regime is not what it used to be and we won’t be back.More

We did arrive a little early for our table so we checked at the front if this was alright, there was only one other group in so we where ok to sit. The first thing that really grabbed my attention was the size of the...food menu, it's really small now. I understand that there may be some limitations at the moment but the menu reduction seemed really drastic. There where a couple of options unavailable when we visited so there where only 7 mains to choose from. Nevertheless, we ordered our food and drinks (which at £5.60 for a pint of moretti and £14.50 for fish and chips is quite expensive). The starters came, we chose the sausage roll and duck parfait. They where ok nothing special but not bad. For mains we had both chosen fish and chips. The fish had oil around it and the bottom of the batter was mushy. At £14.50 for fish and chips youd expect it to be fried properly, it wasnt busy when we visited so youd expect that the food had been taken care of when cooking. Before we visited we had called twice to see if it was alright to use a voucher that we had. Both times by different people we got told that it would be fine to use the voucher along side there current discount scheme and that we 'would be having a cheap night out". When we came to pay we where told that we in fact couldn't actually use it. A female manager came over to our table to explain this and she was quite rude, speaking really loudly (we werent angry at all, just wanting to understand the conflicting information) and not really understanding of the situation. She drew everyone that was in the restaurants attention to our table which made my partner feel really anxious so she had to leave. We did get our bill discounted by £20 after when felt like a tough negotiation and they offered to give us back the voucher too. We denied the voucher because of the way the manager handled our issue, it wasnt very professional and put us off coming ever back. After all the hassle the manager discounted our bill anyway, so why make an issue in the first place? I must say that the lady who took our food order and served us was attentive and nice. It's a shame that all of the staff werent, infact the the manager was quite the opposite to her. I wouldn't reccomend a visit here. There are plenty of wonderful restaurants within Newcastle that offer way more than what this place does.More

My sister and i booked a table at as you like it for sunday lunch as i had my meerkat 2 for 1 to use, as always ive used many times before sunday to thursday, on arrival was told i cant use voucher with no...explanation what so ever, so still deciding to stay we were given a menu which was not the menu i picked out online which was two course for £15.95 or 3 course for £18.95 and was informed they aren't doing that either, just a main for £15.95 or more, we could not believe this so did ask to spk to the manager we were told he would be 10 minutes so waited he never came so asked a waiter he said the manager was sorting out another problem and would be with us shortly waited further still havent seen him yet, waiter was very rude we left starving and disgusted at the treatment and no customer service whatsoever.More

Me and my boyfriend went here on an eat out to help out evening, it was busy but very well spaced out and great social distancing measures making us feel very at ease. Kieran our server was so friendly and kept us well informed on...any waits from the kitchen. Food was 10/10 (especially the vegan fish and chips- a welcome change from the usual veggie/ vegan options most restaurants offer)!More
