The hardest thing was finding the restaurant it is really hidden away, well it is when you have not been before and did not want to get a taxi (more fun). An absolute pleasure from the greeting to leaving. Anybody looking for first class food at a very reasonable price while in Newcastle this is a must. The selection on drinks and all courses are amazing. We will go again when back in Newcastle.

Returned after visiting several weeks ago, really enjoyed our 1st visit and this did not disappoint! It was again beautifully cooked food, with the great knowledge at the front of house being a major help with the selection.
It was very relaxing, and Marcus even remembered when we had been! Probably had nothing to do with my crazy 4 yo! It is a real pleasure going here, nothing is too much trouble.
I tried a couple of different things on the menu than I had last time, this time was just as good if not better! Usually on the 2nd visit you find it's not as good as you remembered, this bucks the trend!
Thanks again to all the staff for a thoroughly entertaining evening and excellent food for us all. We will be returning as soon as we can!!

Visited on a friday night with five friends,the owner and staff very friendly and delivered an excellent service. The food went down very well especially the monk fish & king prawn skewers with chilli risotto. Some had puds which looked too good to eat but were devoured in an instant. I opted for the cheese board with chutney, beautifull selection of cheese and the sweet sticky chutney was the perfect accompanyment. however the only fault ,and it's only a tiny one was thecrackers were not crisp. The staff did apologize and refunded the cost ,promised they would sort it. Last but not least the wine was excellent so much so we had three bottles between us. Great night had by all and we will be back.

Visited with my partner on a GroupOn and we were really impressed with the welcome we received and the care and attention on a very busy Thursday evening.
The interior is smart and not too cramped. The staff were almost 'Disney-friendly' and the food and drinks were high quality and would be good value, even if not on a voucher - there appeared to be some excellent special offers on anyway.
