We have now eaten here twice and each time we have been disappointed. The price that they charge per portion does not meet the quality or quantity of the food and they dress the plate with an large amount of green leaves, definitely could do better.

Surprisingly good steak - one of the best in a (younger) lifetime, and very well prepared and good dishes in small portions, with a few good draft beers and many wines - that's upstairs.

Downstairs you can have the simplest of the dishes, the same drinks, and what tonight was a very, very good comedy show - to the extent we non-natives got it, which is around 50%. Much better than anything I got to watch live in my own country and Language.

Value for money is ok for food, very good for the show.

The stand is the best comedy venue in Newcastle by far! Small and intimate, good priced drinks, nice staff and good food. The acts are Hallarious. One point- dont rearrange the chairs or the staff get ragey and arrive in plenty of time. :)
