The food was fresh, homemade and really tasty. The steak on the special menu was fantastic value for money. There was a good atmosphere and the staff were friendly and helpful. I would definitely return.

We had a lovely family meal here. Pizza were fantastic and pasta dishes very tasty. Great kids menu too. Small and cosy, seemed very popular with the locals and had a great atmosphere. We will definitely go here again when we return to Newcastle.

Lasagne was superb and decent chunky chips. Quick service and very pleasant staff. It was pretty busy when I was there but still fast service. Popular with the locals so a good guide in my books

Price: reasonable. Service: not bad, not good*. Food: terrible. Carbonara tasted like off dairy (whether it was the cream or cheese, I couldn't tell) and the pasta itself was overcooked. I tasted a pizza too, which again, just didn't taste fresh. I didn't particularly enjoy...More

Hello! Steve H. It’s obviously clear that you are the husband of the other person who already put a negative review about carbonara. So then you felt like you had to do the same . If your loyalty is to another restaurant please stay there....More

Nice little upstairs place at the bottom of Gosforth High Street. We went quite early midweek so there weren’t many people in. Food was really nice, especially the pepper sauce with my steak, and the brownie I had for pudding, and it was very reasonable....More
