“Favourite of the group”
Reviewed June 1, 2014

Bistro 23 only opens a couple of evenings and is full so be sure to book. We were a party of 4 and all had different choices from the menu. Everyone was very pleased with their meal and we couldn't fault it at all. The atmosphere was friendly and chatty but not noisy. A lovely night out.

“Good value honest food”
Reviewed May 22, 2014

We were lucky to get a table for dinner in Bistro 23 as they only open for dinner twice a week - it was full which reflects the value of the offering! Limited menu but most dishes were clearly local produce and freshly cooked (although I agree with another reviewer that the scallops were probably native to North America rather than Northumbria!). Had some lovely Halibut, good quality and good value wine all served by friendly and knowledgable people. Would certainly visit again

“Nice and nice friendly staff ”
Reviewed May 17, 2014 via mobile

Stopped for coffee and cake. Generally it's pretty full, but they managed to find us a space at a very nice table by the window. Cakes good, lots of types of tea.
Family friendly

“Service and food good”
Reviewed May 14, 2014 via mobile

I had a starter of duck leg which was exactly that - a duck leg on some salad leaves. My wife had scallops which were obviously those tiny frozen farmed ones. Bit disappointing , but mains were better, although the sauce with the chicken was far too sweet. Service very good and a warm welcome. We enjoyed our evening and would go back again.
