The cocktails here are rank, we ended up just leaving them as they tasted like dishwater. Why offer cocktails if you can not make them? The atmosphere in here is awful as well. Won’t be back

I found this place very friendly and welcoming though as other reviewers have said, I think there are places in town with more atmosphere. However, it is extremely convenient for the hotel next door and people in the Grey Street area of town. It is...More

Situated on Grey Street in Newcastle, The Living Room is a contemporary bar and restaurant with a laid-back vibe that keeps the locals coming back for more. During the day, it's the ideal place to do business over lunch or refuel after a day of shopping. In the evening, the modern eatery fills up with a lively post-work crowd catching up over cocktails. The fixed price menu is great value for money and there is plenty to choose from with all our dishes made with top quality seasonal ingredients. With dishes such as Thai fish cakes, Monkfish and Pork Blocks that not only taste great but look it too why not come and try?
