The staff here are really helpful. Excellent food. Large portions! 2 options on their 3 course menus. I had the 9.99 menu , 3 course ! The garlic mushroom starter is a very large and tasty portion. Lasagne was really tasty too. I can't comment on dessert as I couldn't eat it! Really good place to eat and well worth... More

Had dinner on the Sunday night of our stay in Seaburn. Could not believe the value and excellent quality of the set menu... 3 course for less than £10! And a bottle of very good house wine for about £12. Excellent service too

Used to go here years ago, decided to give it a try, can't recall why we stopped going to be fair. Happy hour was on and it was 3 course for either £9.99 or £14.99. I opted for the more expensive of the two and the ball and chain opted for the £9.99. The choice was excellent, great value and... More

This restaurant is normally very good. However last Saturday evening was disappointing on two or three counts. The bottles of beer were advertised at a larger volume than they were but the same price. Two of our four meals were not as good as usual . I'm hoping that this was a one off as we have not had cause... More

We visited on a Sunday evening, our table was booked for 5:30. when we arrived there was only 1 other table in the restaurant, so not busy at all, despite this we waited over 20 minutes for anyone to take a drinks order, and even then someone had to go and ask for someone to take it. We waited about... More

Had a reservation for 6pm last night, I thought it wouldn't be busy, how wrong we were as it was packed. I think this may of been due to the happy hour finishing at 6pm. My husband was disappointed that they did not serve beer on draught, so he just got a bottle of peroni, I got the bottle of... More

Myself, my Wife and 2 children with a friend were having trouble finding a last minute reservation on a Saturday evening but were able to get one here. Having read reviews about expensive drinks I was careful to check the prices before ordering and found them to be around average when compared to other restaurants and no way excessive. We... More

We first visited this restaurant about 2 years ago now and since then we have been about 5 or 6 times. It's not extremely local to us as we travel from the other side of the river Tyne but we do like to pop over now and then. I've noticed mixed reviews on here in the past but I can... More
