No doubt it is a nice looking, tastefully decorated restaraunt. We went about 7.00 on a Friday night and it was surprisingly quiet. We had intended to go for some time as we had heard it was nice, but I have subsequently read the reviews and wish I had done this beforehand. It seems that other people have had very... More

Spring day, long afternoon walk, perfect place for coffees 24.03.17. Great service, so friendly, table overlooking the Tyne. Nice chat about a shared interest in upcycling furniture with our barista. Highly recommended will definitely return for food. Fish looked and smelled amazing!

Went for Sunday lunch and expected quality as the prices weren't the cheapest on the quayside. Took twenty mins for our starter to arrive but another hour later and still no main. Asked twice to see manager but did not come to see us until we were standing for fifteen minutes to pay for the bill. At this stage he... More

Had a lovely (unreserved) lunch here, the delicious food was all freshly prepared and cooked. Everything was spotlessly clean and the staff were very pleasant. We asked about buying the bread to take home, as what we were given during the meal was so delicious. The waiter asked in the kitchen and we were duly supplied with a loaf to... More

Awful from start to finish.....arrived for a coffee.....dirty uncleared table (cleared and cleaned myself). Grabbed waitress after 5 minute wait......asked for 2 x coffees......walked out after a further 20 minute wait and still no coffee on the horizon. Three staff at bar.....service really the poorest I have ever experienced.

Called in unreserved and was quickly found a suitable table. Down a very good and different menu. Lots of fish which is great also other dishes of course. The staff were ultra attentive and chatty. The food was exquisite. Some excellent flavours. There is also on sale many deli products. Location in Tynemouth is so good absolutely great place. Menu... More

Terrible service but no fault of the servers themselves. Clearly short staffed, we decided to leave before ordering after sitting around for 10-15 minutes which is a shame because food looked lovely.
