“RICH, HISTORIC AND EXQUISITE”
Reviewed 21 October 2013

When I first arrived I was shown around most of the hall and was really impressed with the good blending of history and style in the tea rooms and the meeting rooms that are often used for glorious wedding receptions . The tea rooms were rich in varnished wood panelling and particularly "very English " tea cups and crockery . It has undergone expensive restoration that though a historic building has added even more polish . The lunch we ate with a friend was very well prepared and tasteful . The waitresses gave good service . We also met the owner and his wife who were fine people to meet . Even though a tea room , the atmosphere was deluxe . highly recommended .

“Pricey but good”
Reviewed 4 October 2013

It is certainly an imposing setting in what seems to be an old stately home in its own grounds, though shared with a hospital-bizarre!
There are 3 versions of afternoon tea depending on the price, ranging from £10.95 to £14.95 per person. A strange anomaly is that it says, "add a glass of champagne for £6.95" when a stand alone glass ordered seperately is only £5.95????
They also do a wide selection of breakfast items, paninis, baguettes, sandwiches, cakes etc plus hot pies in the winter, and plenty of choice of teas and coffees. Beer and lager also available.
It also caters for weddings, both ceremonies and receptions.
It is possible to reserve a table.
Worth it for a special treat.

“Wallsend Hall for the BEST cup of Tea in the North East”
Reviewed 6 September 2013

The girls and I often drive from Heaton to Wallsend in our lunch hour for what I can honestly say is the BEST Cup of Tea in the North East. A fine blend of Tea in it's own pot and served in Bone China with lumps of sugar. No need for milk in this excellent tea.
Their Smoked Bacon Sandwiches are wonderful, bacon is so tasty and they use homemade bread too.
What can I say about the service? SECOND TO NONE!
Well done Wallsend Hall.

“Scrumptious lunch”
Reviewed 12 August 2013 via mobile

Wallsend hall is a beautiful building and is a asset to wallsend. Lunch here was very good we had the ploughmans and the chicken and avocado salad all ingredients where fresh and tasty. We also had scones,clotted cream and tea to finish all very nicely presented. Wallsend needs more eating places with such a high standard as this . Will be back again soon. Highly recommended

Went for breakfast with friends and after looking forward for a lovely experience, we were left very disappointed by poor service and average food/drinks.
