“Great Sunday lunch”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 May 2014

Visited our favourite haunt again on Sunday and were not disappointed. Four of us sat on the mezzanine level and were greeted by a really pleasant lady who looked after us fantastically well. We all shared bread and olives and two of us shared a starter portion of mussels (which was more than enough). The grown ups had a beef and pork sunday lunch - both really tasty and superbly cooked and a good sized portion. The kids had a child's Sunday lunch and sausage & mash and both enjoyed. They also had ice cream - all demolished. The service was really good and we just love the easy going but lively atmosphere of the place, you never feel rushed and it's great place to spend a family lunch. It's great value too. We will be back very soon

“Overrated bar for older clientele”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 May 2014 via mobile

The first thing you notice about this bar as soon as you walk in is the stench of fish. Smallish bar area and 3 deep at the bar to get served so slow service. Don't ask for Estrella lager out of the pump, it's disgusting ! Flat and watery. Took the pints back twice and the barmaid blamed the glasses being wet. The sound quality of the music system is poor.

“Good times to be had”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 May 2014

Always love a visit to bar luga,food,drinks and service top notch.promotions if you have a loyalty card are a great plus. You can have half price starters and desserts, maybe 2 for 1 on cocktails or half price on draught drinks. One of my favourite places in town. Try out the Sunday lunches you won't be sorry.go on have a trip to bar luga, as well as the inside being lovely it is situated in one of the best areas in newcastle

“Passing by.”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 May 2014 via mobile

Terrible clingy smell of food as you enter.
Toilets filthy.
Bar area stinks of vomit. Staff oblivious of this.
Expensive for such a poor experience.
