Went here on Vday and it was a last minute booking. Surprisingly it was very empty on the day given its Vday. Service was superb, good was great and atmosphere was so romantic. Food r reasonably priced. Will be back again

We went here on a Sunday evening for dinner as we had the Tastecard with 2 for 1 on all courses. While the service was impeccable the food sadly wasn't. The starters weren't special at all, some sort of vegetable panna cota that had nice decorations, but not much taste whatsoever and we also had a vegetable tart which had... More

Me and my boyfriend recently came here for a relaxing dinner and we certainly got that. The service, the food. Everything about the place is just excellent. It's absolutely great value too. It was £69 per couple for any starter, any main and any dessert on the menu. It also included a bottle of wine, bread and a lovely Amuse... More

The night we ate here there had been a fire on a lower floor and the hotel had been evacuated. We were not sure what the service would be like as we had been informed that the gas had been turned off and it had not long been turned back on. We did not need to have worried as the... More

On their first evening they had dinner in the Bridge Restaurant while on their second day they took afternoon tea. On both occasions the food was excellent. For dinner on the first evening they started with an 'Amuse-bouche'. The starters were a plate of Chargrilled Flatbread,... More

Our visit got off to an odd, surprising start with no menus available in the restaurant "until they had got some back". Even then the delay from receiving menus to actually taking our order was over 1 hour after the time the table was booked for. Food service was very slow, with some of the serving staff appearing to have... More

We went for afternoon tea which didn't disappoint. There's tons of good food and the cocktails are amazing but very strong. Service is excellent too

Very pleasant staff. Our waiter was great and very helpful. Would recommend the 3-course menu with bottle of wine. You can choose anything from the regular menu and pay a supplement if you choose more expensive items. Very good prawn cocktail and steaks.

  • This restaurant is at The Vermont Hotel
���Tyne and dine��� at Newcastle���s Bridge Restaurant, with its spectacular views over the River Tyne and the soaring arc of the Tyne Bridge. The restaurant is in the Vermont Hotel, a Manhattan-style 1930s tower right next to the remains of the city���s medieval castle and close to the revitalised Quayside area. Start with marinated herring with crisp pancetta and honey-mustard vinaigrette or the more substantial confit duck and red onion tart tatin. Then dig in to baked lamp rump with minted lentils and garlic potatoes, or pan-seared wild salmon, braised spring cabbage and clam casserole.You may think you���ll be able to resist the milk chocolate cr��me br��l��e with Bailey���s ice-cream, but that���s only because you���ll fall for the steamed lemon sponge with vanilla cr��me fra��che instead.
