We were lucky enough to get one of the coveted window seats in the Redhouse so ate our meal with a view.

Simply serving variations of pie, mash and peas (including local favourite pease pudding!), the food was gorgeous. We had the chicken and gammon pie with herby mash, meat gravy and pease pudding and the steak pie with creamy mash, red wine gravy and mushy peas. The portions were huge, the pies full of filling and the pastry crisp. I was unable to finish mine so even though the deserts sounded yum there was no way I could have eaten one.

A fine selection of ales at the bar kept my boyfriend happy. The only reason that I've given the Redhouse a 4 rather than a 5 was the price of a beer and a glass of wine...£8.95. We nearly fell through the (rather lovingly restored) floor. The same round only cost £6.40 in the Broad Chare a few minutes later.

A group of 17 of us had booked in a few weeks in advance. Upon arrival the area we had reserved was full - dissapointing but the staff did the best they could to clear the room and make space for us.

Fabulous drinks.

Unfortunately the food is another matter. The standard and value are not in question as both are fantastic but from an order of 17 only 3 meals came out right and over 45 minutes from the first meal being served to the last one being brought out, despite us writing the order out in full. The staff seemed clueless and despite several attempts couldn't get the order right web though we re-iterated the order multiple times.

A dissapointing finish to a very promising place!

Simple choice of butcher made pies, very good value for the quality of the meal and nice cosy pub atmosphere. Some refurbishment in progress/pending and a second veggie and child option would be good but otherwise no faults. Interesting drinks available too and small, quirky rooms make it better than the average pub lunch. Thank you

The return of a traditional Quayside pub, not changed, but just the way it was, fondly remembered. Splendid real ales, well kept and a pie and mash menu to make the hardest critic smile, but only one veggie option the day we went.

Visited: Friday 28th December @ 12:30, Cost: £21 for two adults to have 1 Beer, 1 G&T and 2 main courses,

The Red House Pub has been revamped and is on Newcastle's historic quayside, its a great building full of character. The new menu had 6 types of pies and 3 types each of mash, peas and gravy. You pick your pie, your mash, your types of peas and the type of gravy you want so there is plenty of variation. Carnivores and vegetarians are catered for and the pies are from a local butcher in Blyth.

Meal 1 was; Mutton pie, Parmesan mash, mushy peas and red wine gravy.
Meal 2 was; Mature Cheddar pie, creamy mash, mushy peas and herby gravy.

The servings were more than adequate for anyone other than Billy Bunter, the meals were hot, the pie crusts crisp and no soggy bottoms on the pies. Now, I had the good intentions of taking a picture of the meal when it arrived but I forgot when it was put down and I smelt it because it was so good.

There are desserts as well but we had no room for one once we finish the pie and mash. The only reason I didn't give a maximum score was because of the music playing which I find annoying but you may like.
