Brilliant staff, great food a must place whenever we visit Newcastle
Lovely place, quiz is really good, really enjoy it ..
Staff were lovely, food was really good and there is a nice chilled out atmosphere. Would definitely recommend.
Fantastic as always. Incredible food and lovely staff. A must whenever we are in Newcastle
Nothing out of ordinary but nothing to dislike. I would go back but i would not rush back. Good service and friendly staff. We had the lunch menu which was nice but i dont like french fries the quality was no different to mcdonalds chips. Lovely selection of cocktails and other drink and beautiful coffee. Maybe i would be more vocal if i tried a meal from the normal menu instead of the lynch menu.
Fantastic food. One of the best burgers I’ve had. Lovely friendly staff. A hidden gem right in the heart of Newcastle. You have to pop downstairs and see how great the place is.
Food was great, but our order took 90 mins to arrive. Staff apologetic and knocked 10% off, but that was equivalent to half a cocktail each. Cocktails were ok, white Russian not mixed and light on Khalua. Boozy butter bear was fabulous! If this was my first time dining here I would be reluctant to go back due to the service issues.
Great spot, but disappointing food - rib rub wasn’t the tastiest; brisket was sold out by 8pm; pork burnt ends were dry; and pulled pork wasn’t really pulled pork (more like a few burnt ends shoved in a brioche). We really wanted to like it, as the concept and decor are fantastic... but food needs some work.
Love the purple bear, always have a fab night, great food, amazing cocktails, very reasonable prices and the staff are super friendly and extremely helpful 😁
Food was nice, but they’d ran out of a few things on the menu relatively early on a Saturday evening. Staff were lovely. Drinks were great. Atmosphere was really good.
