Description: A lovingly restored bar and eatery in the heart of Tynemouth. You’ll find us midway down Tynemouth’s bustling Front Street just through the sleepy arches of the old arcade. Nestled amongst the boutique shops, restaurants, old pubs, surf shops and deli’s that make up the fabric that is Tynemouth Village, Lola Jeans bar & kitchen has taken over the former space of one of the towns longest standing drinking holes dating all the way back to early Victorian times. We have stripped back decades of misuse and unearthed some period features helping us to create a space combining classic décor, reclaimed furnishings along with some modern additions to compliment the building. The styling concept was the product of many years exploring established watering holes in every place we’ve ever been lucky enough to visit. Taking in everything from continental wine bars to New York roadside deli’s and Parisian pavement café’s to East London’s chic basement bars. The outcome is something that would surely be the envy of many of the above. Enlisting the help of local specialists we have lovingly devised a menu featuring as much regionally sourced produce as we could possibly muster, constantly communicating with the producers at a grass roots level we have put together a selection of fresh food we are very proud of. Our top bartenders with more than 16 years experience between them, on bars from Australia to London, have compiled a list of tried and tested mixed drinks using only the best spirits and finest liqueurs from the timeless Mojito to fun modern classics like the NY Cosmo. We have also collated some of the best beers from around the world along with some firm favourites from wine suppliers across the UK ensuring there is something for every pallet.Please pop in and say hi, whether for some hearty post-surf food or to put our bar staff to the test with one of our fine drinks. Our eclectic playlist will be providing the backdrop for your visit to Lola Jeans, open throughout the day and long into the night. See you at the bar!Love Lj xx

“Cracking Bar & Restaurant !!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 20, 2014

My wife and I had not been for quite a while so decided on an early evening meal & drinks last Saturday. Very helpful staff and good choice on menu. Not to expensive, and good size portions. Presentation and quality was as usual very good indeed. Nice atmosphere and location tucked away in Tynemouth. Will definitely return again, and would recommend.

“You Can't Go Wrong With Lola Jeans”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 13, 2014

I've been here so many times, after a long walk with the dogs, various parties, quiet afternoon lunches and catch ups with long lost mates, and I can honestly say it's been great every time. The staff are fantastic without being to "in your face pally". The food, on the times I've had it, has been of a quality you'd pay double for in Newcastle. The atmosphere is great, whether you want it quiet or at the parties I've been too, it's perfect. This place is so good my daughter, who has emigrated to Australia, is desperately searching for the Aussie equivalent, but having no luck. A great place tucked away, but worth the time to waste some time... give it a shot, you won't be sorry.

“Awesome afternoon in the best bar in Tynemouth”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 4, 2014 via mobile

Visited Lola's on Saturday 3rd May for afternoon eats. Although there were plenty of people in the pub we found a table no problem. My friend and I had a sharing platter of steak and chicken with all the trimmings! We only waited 10 - 15mins or so before the food arrived!! The chef certainly isn't shy on filling the food boards as there was plenty of everything we had ordered. The salad was lovely and fresh and the steak was medium rare (which we'd asked for) the flat breads were lovely and hot as well! The flavours of the roasted veg were devine (green beans, peppers, mushrooms) the chicken and the steak were piping hot as well as the thrice fried chips (which are to die for!)

The atmosphere was great! Just enough background music not to drown out your conversation. The place was full of different groups of people - families, couples, groups of friends - all made for a great ambience - and it's dog friendly too! What's not to like!?

But for me what gave it the edge over the other places in Tynemouth is the staff! They could not of been more attentive. Nothing was a bother for them and the service was faultless.

It ticked every box for me so I'll be going back for sure. Well done Lola's I can't say more than that!

“Must go in … cool and good.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 1, 2014

The name does not portraits the cool ambiance and creative food you’ll find inside. It is not a long list of dishes and sandwiches but enough satisfying for ones party. Good selection of wines and beers (I had a marvelous Viru, from Estonia). It was not a crowdy day and saw only one barman and one waiter, but service was nice, fast and effective.

“Best food in Tynemouth, without a doubt”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 29, 2014

Visit Tynemouth on a regular basis and this is by far the best food, have never had a bad meal. The surroundings are relaxed and the staff really friendly and nothing is too much trouble. The side doors fold out in the summer to open the whole place up which is nice. If you only go to one place in Tynemouth make it Lola Jeans you won't be disappointed.
