My husband and I had the Sunday roast menu. I cannot fault a thing, the service is professional yet friendly, the food is delicious (although my husband did say his beef was a little chewy). This wasn't enough to marr a wonderful experience.

Just wow. The most perfect evening. Loved the food, atmosphere, decor, service, price. It really was the best meal/experience we've had in a long while. Congratulations to the team who are obviously well trained and extremely hard working.

Met up with a couple we met on holiday in Tenerife last year who live in Gateshead and left the choice of establishment to their local knowledge. Got to say what an inspired choice. First impression was of a quiet spotless upmarket restaurant. We went...More

Excellent food and excellent service. But... 1) When we say "that was a REALLY lovely meal", the response "no problem" is utterly inappropriate. Why is this now the standard reply to everything? 2) A personal thing...I hate truffle oil and this restaurant smelt strongly of...More
