As a big fan of Junipers Pantry in Sunderland, I was very keen to visit their new venture at Nectar Bar in Newcastle.
I've been twice in a fortnight, once for the lunchtime menu and once for the 2 courses for £15 a la carte menu.
The bar is done out well and the staff friendly. You can see into the kitchen from the bar which is always a welcome sight.
On my first visit I had duck and black pudding burger and on the second I had beef feather blade followed by Apple and elderflower crumble. All dishes were excellent and good value as I have come to expect from junipers pantry.
The only reason I've given 4 stars instead of 5 is that there have been problems with the draft beers and soft drinks on both visits. The bottled selection is good and this is hopefully a temporary problem
