My wife and I have just lunch here and it was an absolute joy.
The restaurants decor is simple and uncluttered, the tables are not on top of one and other, very nice.
The food was wonderful. The warm smoked haddock starter was delightful. The blade of beef main course was wonderful, tender and full of taste. The sticky toffee pudding was light and very, very nice.
The staff are all pleasant, cheerful and attentive.
We certainly will be returning but next time for dinner with friends.

A bit of research online led me to book at the Biscuit Factory and to sample the quisine at Food Social. It's a fantastic setting for a restaurant, and was very classy without being stuffy. While the tables have lots of space, there is still quite a lively atmosphere, helped by the artistic installations that are displayed throughout the room. The real highlight is the food. Well presented and wonderfully well prepared, the whole meal was excellent and utterly delicious. The venison is particular is sublime. David Kennedy's is very highly recommended.

Spending a couple of days in Newcastle, tried Food Social on spec and very glad to have done so. Early evening menu deal remarkable value, great ingredients treated with respect and imagination, elegant setting if a little out of the city centre. Best place we ate in the city by some distance, highly recommended.

revisited the Biscuit Factory for our Thusday gentleman's night out. Attracted by the Gourmet card 25% price reduction on all food and drink. Four of us chose different starters and mains from the a la carte menu and a bottle of the house red from the wine list. The food was originally presented and the food was delicious. Some of the best we have experienced in the twenty years we have been dining together as a group. Tap water was amply supplied to accompany our second bottle of red which was proving very quaffable. Ambience was was warm and friendly with polite attentiveness from the staff. When the bill arrived we were pleasantly surprised to find the 25% gourmet card reduction already applied so that the bill for four was a pleasing £25 per head .
A measure of how much we enjoyed David Kennedy's was that two of us revisited it with our wives to sample the lunch time menu. We booked with the Gourmet Card but found that when the bill was presented it did not qualify for a reduction as we had chosen from the lunchtime special menu. Perhaps we may have drunk less if we had Known but nevertheless found the food exquisite once more and a bill of around £20 per head very reasonable. If you like fine dining in comfortable and arty surroundings we can all recommend David Kennedy's @ The Biscuit Factory as the answer to appetites that don't judge by the amount served but require taste sensations instead

We went here as it was close to a bike shop we'd been to! Thankfully we chose this restaurant! We went early and had the set early evening menu. The food was delicious and fantastic value. The staff were very welcoming and the place soon had a nice buzz.
