Arrived on a Sunday so we are from the £25ish a head Sunday menu (3 courses). Excellent black pudding and terrine starters followed by one of the best salmon mains we've had. Lovely crispy skin and a subtle Thai chilli sauce. Puds were a rice pudding with pear and sultanas and cheese with pickles. All washed down with a nice... More

Had a lovely meal on a previous occasion but the special on our last visit was a little disappointing especially as this was Xmas menu but the company and the staff were most attentive.

I had the lamb and I never had one so tender. The aubergine was well cooked and matched the lamb perfectly.

I took my Mum for a little treat after shopping in Newcastle this morning. We booked for noon and were the first customers. Everything was very relaxed from a drink at the bar, to choosing food and wine then taking our table. A lovely dining room with a relaxing atmosphere. We opted for the set lunch and had 2 courses...

Lovely set lunch menu. Really excellent choice and the portion size was perfect. Managed the starter of braised venison with polenta followed by confit duck and Ouefs a la neige to finish. Both me and my girlfriend throughly enjoyed it. Highly recommended.

We praise this restaurant in every respect. The food, drink, ambience and staff were all perfect. The clientele was a nice mix too. It was reasonably busy and buzzy for a Monday night. We last visited 5-10 years ago (we live down south) and it's just as good.

For our 7.30 table we arrived at 7.20 and were told our table wasn't ready which is fair enough. However we were then told to just go and get yourselves a chair at the bar. No one asked if the could take our coats or even helped getting chairs together for us. After 5 minutes some menus were provided. 15... More

Took a very important client here at short notice when I discovered he wasn't flying back to the US until Saturday. Finding a table at a reasonable time was a proper chore. Came to 21 for the first time in a while. Normally I find this place very good but occasionally the standard dips. Well on Friday night they were... More

Had a Sunday Roast this evening.. The medium cooked beef I ordered was cooked to perfection. Cauliflower-cheese and veg were spot on also. Finished off with Apple and Raspberry crumble for dessert. All in all, I'd highly recommend. Beautiful. 👌🏻
