This restaurant was a great place to eat, food was fantastic, prices were a little high for the amount of food received. Very clean, service was excellent from start to finish. Would recommend this restaurant to my friends.

Absolutely amazing night. The food on the taster menu was out of this world- each dish was like a work of art and tasted divine. We did the wine pairing too which I definitely recommend. The staff were so attentive and knowledgable and David Coulson came out to chat with us at the end.
Fab night to celebrate hubby's birthday.

We were visiting Newcastle on a cruise ship and I had read about this restaurant in a newspaper so being foodies we thought it would be great to visit while we had the chance.

It was a Monday so the restaurant was fairly quiet and there was a nice laid back vibe.Booking was easy and they checked a few times to confirm the reservation beforehand.

We started with cocktails and the choice and descriptions are really good.I had a Pimms based martini which I really enjoyed .

The menu is quite unusual and both the waiter and maitre d were very helpful explaining the dishes and how they work.We chose the fixed price lunch , 25 pounds for 3 courses plus little canapés in between .The food was very different and really good.The portions are not huge but large enough and the tastes and flavours are fantastic.

We are used to London prices so for this quality of food and wine,cocktails and liqueurs with desert to get a bill of 97 pounds was very very reasonable.We were told by the local guide on our ship that this restaurant is very popular with locals.Im not surprised to hear it .We have recommended to friends who will be up in Newcastle soon and they have already booked .

The food was, of course, fabulous; all three courses we each chose and also the little extras the chef treated us to.
Especially special on this visit was the service regarding requests made to surprise the birthday boy. All the staff accommodated our requests with respectful and caring concern to make it special for him.
We have absolutely no hesitation in saying that we will be back.

Peace and Loaf is an absolute food experience. Difficult to describe it as you have to try it for yourself.
Had Iberian Pork which blew my head off. Five stars... 10/10 .... absolute A+

Never, ever had a bad meal here and my latest visit was to the standard I expected. I was introducing a friend so was a bit nervous in case she disagreed . Needn't have worried. Food was fabulous , service great and the Fixed Prix menu is amazing value for money . If you can, swap the desert for the assiette, well worth the extra money as you get 4 puds to share ! Already planning my next visit

Unfortunately we had pre booked the tasting menu without realising there would be so much seafood/fish. I did try the majority of it but oyster, raw scallop and undercooked halibut wasn’t for me 😝. Service was excellent and couldn’t be faulted.

As always delicious food and great service. We have always previously come without children but this time we brought our 7 week old daughter. That would be my only critism as there were no baby changing facilities.

Peace and Loaf is delicately crafted, delicious food in an unpretentious, relaxed setting.

Lucky enough to book in during NE2 Restaurant Week, it was also very affordable.

I didn’t enjoy being so close to other diners’ - not what you expect in a fine dining restaurant- it didn’t help that I was next to a man doing an impression of a laughing hyena. The staff were good, however there wasn’t enough of them. The disabled toilet was blocked with staff handbags,etc.
The chairs weren’t very comfy.The food itself was quite good, a bit off the wall perhaps and flavours didn’t always compliment each other, although presentation could have been better .I do think with a bit tweaking this could be competing with Jesmond Dene House(the best) and House of Tides but the management need to decide what type of restaurant they want to be.

My girlfriend and I had an absolutely amazing time at Peace and Loaf. Food was brilliant as always (the Bass and Dahl main course was especially good) and the waiting staff were both friendly and informative about the food and drinks. Only minor quibble was that because our table (21 or 22?) was near the air-conditioning unit, we got slightly cold towards the end of the meal! Will definitely be returning soon!
