Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Reviewed 3 December 2023

Went for Sunday 'roast dinner' - the veggie/vegan option was very disappointing. Three vegan sausages with about a heaped serving spoon of mash and 2 small roasties, 2 sprouts and some undercooked carrots and parsnips. The gravy was gloopy and clearly from a packet of...granules. The veg option is an afterthought with no real thought put in - at least do a nut roast or a pie rather than some frozen sausages. Probably the most underwhelming sunday lunch I've had in NewcastleMore

We were looking forward to the Sunday meal - but what a disappointment. Very cold food, almost raw veg, really long wait - the mains had to be sent back for reheating, as did the desserts. The toilets were really dirty. The waiting staff were...nice though but we won't be backMore

Loved the decor and the servers were so friendly-they could obviously see me and my friends were hanging! We all ordered roasts, I ordered the vegetarian one. Mine came out 5/10 minutes later than everyone else’s. The gravy was globby and lukewarm, and the portion...wasn’t massive compared to others-it felt a bit cheeky to charge the same price when certain things were excluded-just lob on a bit more mash to replace the Yorkshire pudding or something idk. One of my friends also thought the portions weren’t all equal, but we were probably just being hungry ill greedy hungover pigs. It was also quite late so maybe limited stock? Despite this I’d say we had a great time, the food tasted really good apart from the gravy and the vibes were chill. Would for sure go back, maybe go earlier and opt for something other than a vegan roast, didn’t really feel like a roast without a Yorkshire, the hangover really impacted my decision making there.More

Had a great Sunday dinner experience. Cool location plus a chilled vibe, along with great customer service and staff! Had a yummy beef diner with some sneaky pigs in blankets! Will definitely go back :-)!

Found this bar purely by chance as we were staying in a hotel nearby . The decor is decent and the prices for a beer were very good , there was a mix of age groups and a nice atmosphere . The thing that stood...out was the service at the bar . They were very welcoming and friendly especially the tall girl with dark hair I should have got her name . There is a large tv showing sports and we will Definetly visit here again the next time we are in Newcastle .More

The Sunday roast lunch was really tasty. It was a good portion with fresh quality ingredients. Definitely value for money. Nice atmosphere and really friendly staff. Service charge was added to the bill ( I prefer leaving cash tips) but the waitress pointed the service...charge out on the bill multiple times for full transparency which we really liked. Only improvement would be the cauliflower cheese as it was a little watery.More

Came for Sunday lunch after seeing great reviews but left feeling very disappointed. Food was below par, the beef especially was tasteless and very tough. Toilets were also in a very poor condition. Definitely wouldn’t recommend.
