    Absolutely wonderful experience. We went for my partners birthday, and tried the 11 course vegan tasting menu. The standard of food and service is as good as I’ve ever seen. Not all dishes were to our tasting, but it was a fantastic variety and we certainly tried things we otherwise would not have. The wild garlic cabbage dish, along with the carrot and chili jam course, were particular highlights. It’s on the higher end in terms of pricing, but here you really do get what you pay for. We couldn’t fault it. Highly recommended.

    The first time we visited, about a year ago, I had one of the best meals of my life. I think this hindered my second visit last night, as I arrived with such high expectations. The best courses were fantastic but I think there were only two I would hold in this regard. The cabbage dish was, well, cabbage and had nothing exceptional about it. The cod felt bland other than the salt. The rhubarb ice cream was great but had no reason to be sat beside some stodgy creme pat. I would have left the restaurant far more content and fulfilled had I been given a bowl of the curry instead of the taster menu. I was instantly transported to New Delhi with every mouthful.

    WOW! Just wow…… Went on a Thursday and had their steak menu, I’m not a fan of fish (which wasn’t an issue) the waiting staff were happy to substitute it for another option. I’m lost for words, what a genuine find in Newcastle, I’ve eaten steak all around the world and mostly in Michelin Star restaurants, But hands down this is the best Rib eye I have tasted. Would highly recommend this amazing eatery..amazing food/staff and atmosphere. Will trying the tasting menu next.

    Already written this on my Google review but it’s so good that it’s worth saying twice… From the service to the atmosphere, and of course, the incredible food, this experience was breathtaking. I had some of the most excellently cooked seafood I have ever experienced and it was the perfect spot for valentines. If you are thinking about having an intimate evening out with your partner, there is NO BETTER place in Newcastle. We will be back!

    We had the full tasting menu, which was excellent . Varied and interesting at every level; we enjoyed every last morsel and crumb. Service was informative, but unfussy, and the ambience on a busy Saturday night was very enjoyable. I would thoroughly recommend Peace and Loaf, and will certainly return when I’m next in Newcastle.

    The food was excellent as usual but I would prefer a non tasting style menu as we felt the courses were rushed at lunchtime which meant as a result when I plate was taken away it was immediately replaced with another. Maybe it’s no longer a lunchtime venue which is a shame as the food is always great tasting. The main course pork was also a little tough (I did tell the waiter).
