Helpful and friendly staff, efficient service together with a beautiful and interesting building made an excellent meal. The house red was of particular note, great value and a fabulous drink. Would not hesitate to go back however will be trying a few different choices on our next visit to Newcastle.

Have been here many times stretching back over the last 8 years or so. We went back again and it was as good as ever. Really delicious food, polite and attentive staff and a great building. All in all an easy recommendation.

Restaurant was packed when we arrived and the nosie was simiar to that of a busy train station at rush hour. Seating wasnt great but it was extremely busy. Servcie however was excellent and very quick consideirng how busy it was. Food was lovely with plenty choices staff were friendly and polite would go again.

This restaurant is located in what was a bank and the setting is different to most restaurants. It has high ceilings, green tiles and it has a very nice feel to it. There is a happy hour menu (low cost but reasonable selection), a standard menu (good selection at reasonable cost) and a specials board. The food is very nice... More

Value for money this restaurant, I went here with 2 friends and 2 courses for £8.95 a bargain. We could have had the 3 courses but all we wanted at the end was a coffee and that's only 50p. The service is good and the food is amazing and plenty of it. They don't rush you out which is a... More

Our first visit and would return. Bit of a mixed experience but it was a busy Friday night. Garlic bread for starter was excellent, tasted great, huge and very good value but the olives weren't warm as expected and not that special for the price. A bit disappointed with the pizza and really not what you would expect from an... More

Hi leazes Thanks for taking the time to leave a review. Our olives are not supposed to be served warm, maybe your server explained the dish wrong?
