Been in here a few times over the last year. Nice little quirky pub. Very friendly and welcoming. Different from the other bars on Gosforth High Street

Early NYE visit and it was great to see it busier. The Purity Mad Goose was still on tap and was very good. Gents toilets also seem to have had the much needed refresh. Keep working hard and it could become busy often.

I thought I'd give the Barca another visit today for Sunday roast. It was very good, beautifully roasted beef and home made gravy. The portion was too much, and with a great range of imaginatively prepared vegetables. It actually has a bit of a feel of Granny's traditional cooking to it. I just got home, and now I need a...

Popped into Barca for a roast this afternoon and I have to say, I was really impressed. I chose the beef which was seasoned really well, cooked just right and there was plenty of it too. The dinner arrived at the table with the vegetables on separate serving dishes which makes the experience feel a bit more special. I was... More

Fancied Sunday lunch and remembered seeing the board outside over the year boasting about theirs at £9.99 each or 2 for £16.99. We were told there would be a wait of 30 minutes and it was at least that as they had to cook some more Yorkshires! Settled down with a very good pint of Purity Mad Goose and my... More

I headed to Gosforth High Street for a Sunday Roast. I checked with Trip Advisor who rated several places highly. I went into the Barca with some trepidation I have to admit. I've never been in there before, it's quite dark inside and nothing in the decor to make me comfortable. I got a beer, ordered a Sunday Roast loin... More

Hadn't been for a while so decided to give it a go. That's the last time for me. Tabbouleh on outside menu but not inside menu. Wrong one printed apparently. Anyway I ordered that with some Halloumi. Tabbouleh was too dry and too he you on the Bulghar Wheat and I'm Friday the Halloumi was flaccid and I think not... More

Had a really good time for food and drinks at Barca. The food was really delicious - lots of vegetarian choices on the menu. Staff including the chef were really friendly. Would definitely do back :)

Took ages to be acknowledged even though it was fairly quiet. They don't sell prosecco which seemed strange. We keep giving this place the benefit of the doubt but it's consistently awful! Little atmosphere with miserable staff.

We have enjoyed a number of meals at Barca over the past few months. The food is delicious- particularly the Sunday lunch. The portions are generous and the price is reasonable. The staff are always friendly including the chef! Barca can be busy on the evenings and there is entertainment some nights of the week. We would recommend Barca for... More
