21’s cooking is big on flavour and short on fuss. We’re talking about a style which embraces the seasons and where the ingredients are king. Expect to find stylish, imaginative dishes – which don’t pander to fads or fashion…………and still have room for pudding. Expect a warm welcome, generous hospitality and service that is both friendly and correct.

A city centre restaurant with a city centre buzz. In the heart of Newcastle's Quayside, 21 has an excitement and warmth all of its own. Smart but not stuffy, sleek but not pretentious, fun but not gimmicky - It's about eating good food in comfortably stylish surroundings.

Menus include Lunch and Early Evening Fixed Price, Five Course Seasonal and à la Carte.

    Another very good evening at 21. Picked the “bang in season” menu with wine pairing. Food was fab, enjoyed every course. There was only one wine we didn’t care for but otherwise the choices were great. Lovely staff, looked after very well. One noisy table near us which was not good but moved into bar area for a final drink. We keep returning to this restaurant as we always enjoy the food, wine etc.. thanks everyone at 21 .

    I had roe deer with beetroots and cheese croquettes. It was delicious. This was followed by the chocolate and salted caramel soufflé which was scrumptious. All of my colleagues also enjoyed their meals. A great night out.

    Nice welcome and offered a seat in the bar or to the restaurant table. Went to the table and ordered Margarita and Mohito, both very good. Water provided for table and set to ordering food. Both had spinach and cheese soufflé which were excellent. Centre fillet steak which my wife said was the best steak she’s ever had and Roe deer for me. Venison was very tender, tasty and full of flavour. Declined desserts. Had a very nice Shiraz (Mathilda and) with the meal and service was outstanding.

    My wife and I recently dined on the set menu at 21, and it was absolutely superb from start to finish. Great service, great prices, and really really tasty food served hot and fresh. There was good background chat without it being loud or overpowering. Loved it, highly recommended.

    As the above stars show Sunday Lunch was excellent in every way. The beef was to die for - never tasted beef as tasty and tender anywhere - even at home! 21 continues, in my view, to be the best restaurant in the area without doubt.
