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.

Me and my Mam often visit the Skiff on a Monday night. Neither of us have had a bad meal here. The staff are all absolutely brilliant so friendly and nothing is ever a problem. The odd time we go with my sister and her 3 little ones the staff always have time for the kids. 10/10 Skiff will be visiting again soon 😀

Travelled all the way from Reading to Newcastle, staying in the nearby Holiday Inn and wanted a bite to eat …. this place exceeded all expectations. Really friendly staff, sensible prices and most importantly awesome food - we had a spread of things (starters, pasta and pizzas) but the star of the show for me was the bolognese pizza … just yum!

I took my family for a meal today 16/3/2024. What a wonderful experience it was. I had visited before, a long time ago. The staff were very friendly and helpful. Food was a delight. I couldn't have had a better night. Will make a return visit very soon.

The food was wonderful. Home cooked and delicious. Great for vegetarians and meat eaters. Very good value. The service was spot on. Amazed that we were served such obviously fresh food so quickly in such a packed restaurant. I would recommend that you book.

Unbelievable value. I was actually booked in at a major chain restaurant nearby however would have required to remortgage my house for the privilege. So off I wandered. My journey lead me next door to Skiffs Inn and it was absolutely from start to finish. Delicious food, great portion sizes. Very friendly staff. Absolutely delighted with that. Thanks "The Skiff Inn"

Second visit here to this busy restaurant and bar. Good range of drinks and lovely food. Portions are very big and reasonably priced Staff helpful and polite Plenty of seats but suggest booking a table as it is very popular Close to metro centre and Newcastle Ample parking

Was working away for 3 nights and spent every night in here. Food is probably the best Iv ever had. Different meal every night. Fajitas are the best around. Staff amazing. Just need to work out a excuse to travel up from Manchester to visit again

Visited by chance. Was originally at the TGI Friday restaurant opposite but the prices were really expensive and the menu choice was poor. Had a look on tripadvisor and found this pub/restaurant nearby and wow I'm so glad I did. Although busy service were was great. The menu choice was great and the food we had was lovely.

we called here after some stressful Christmas shopping and this establishment was an oasis of calm ,friendliness and relaxation . Staff were friendly and chatty and were just what we needed .Drinks arrived swiftly . Soon after the meals arrived an excellent mixed grill ,perfectly cooked and good value. My companion ordered a lasagne which was also good . We both chose desserts chocolate brownie with ice cream and these did not dissapoint, sweet chocolatey ,soft and warm. There was also plenty of parking.

For the first time ever at christmas we ordered the takeaway christmas day lunch for 5 people as I was working till 1.30 christmas day and thought it would be lovely to have my lunch cooked for me christmas day. I must say the lunch was absolutely amazing, we had 3 courses each course so well thought out with all the garnishes, prawn and crayfish with iceberg lettuce garnished with paprika and homemade marie sauce, it was delicious, we then had roast turkey will all the trimming and I mean all the trimmings, followed by homemade christmas pudding and brandy sauce garnished with fresh cranberries and mint, to die for, we even got a small bottle of prosecco each and a xmas cracker, the food was cooked to perfection., we even got an instruction booklet as the best way to heat it all up. The staff were sp helpful and friendly when my husband picked it up. I would like to give our compliments to the chef and a huge thankyou for making our christmas day special, hope you are doing the same for next year, The Pearsons
