“It's ok!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 October 2013

The food was decent (don't have too big expectations!), there was a wide choice of drinks! I enjoyed the wishkey selection. Twice a week it was possible to watch the footbal games.

Hi Carlosino

Thanks for taking the time to provide a review on The Ware Rooms.

We take the time to ensure that there a TV schedule is always provided for our customers and several food and drink offers to accompany our live football games.

Remember, if you can't see the game or event you're after, let the team know and we'll do our best to show it.

Thanks again for your feedback.

“Euro hostel just above”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 August 2013

Nice little pub, restaurant, whatever it is. We stayed in Euro hostel just above the bar. They serve amazing continental breakfast and also traditional one. It's not pricy, but it's not cheap either, general range of prices. Liked it very much!

Hello wanderer2702

Many thanks for taking the time to review The Ware Rooms after your recent stay with Euro Hostel Newcastle.

I was glad that you found our prices to be neither expensive nor cheap but though our continental breakfast offering is very good, we don't charge our guests - it's complimentary.

Thanks again for your comments and I hope you will come and see us again soon.

“Happy retirement party”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 July 2013

Had a really enjoyable evening at The Ware Rooms to celebrate my retirement. With approximately 50 guests, there was plenty of room to accomodate us and staff were more than happy to reserve an area for our exclusive use.I have used this venue for similar functions in the past and have always found the staff and surroundings pleasant and the atmosphere friendly.
I was not let down. A big thank you to Toni, Elaine and Joe who worked tirelessly behind the bar to keep the thirsty hoardes refereshed and a special mention to young Connor, the glass collector, who worked like an efficient machine all night. His energy was a source of entertainment haha !
Reasonable priced drinks and a wide selection of beers,wines and spirits kept everyone happy.

All in all a success !!

“Exceptionally poor service”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 June 2013 via mobile

During a recent visit to the ware rooms I experienced some of the worst service that I have ever had anywhere. The waitresses were rude and ill mannered. When the food arrived 1 and a half hours after ordering it was barely edible. I got tired of waiting for my meal and requested my order to be cancelled and my money refunded which eventualy it was without even an apology. One of our group askes for sone tomato sauce and it was basically thrown at him. Absolutely shocking place!

“Pathetic”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 February 2013

Went here after it first opened after a reading a top review in the Evening Chronicle. All the food was pre-packed stuff. Ding food - microwave. Didn't even have any real Bacardi ... just white rum! Seating is on benches in some places, decor is gory, a real heartless place! The date I added for my attendance is obviously wrong, but is the closet I could get from the drop down menu.

Hi Jane W

Thanks for taking the time to review The Ware Rooms for Tripadvisor.

I appreciate your comments on our food service though the feedback is now almost two years old (the Evening Chronicle Review appeared just after our opening in March 2011).

Please be aware that there is always a Duty Manager on shift 24 hours a day who will be delighted to listen to your concerns, and take appropriate action at the time.

Thanks again for your comments.
