Peace and Loaf Restaurant
Had a great time as usual. Food was fantastic, always delicious. Only slight issue was getting our starter brought out before we'd finished the canapés, it made us feel rushed. It didn't spoil our time as the food was outstanding.
Amazing food and lovely staff! Nothing was too much trouble. Will be back
Interesting and tasty food, very professionally served.
The only downside was the lack of atmosphere. The restaurant was quite busy, but there was no buzz. The big open industrial style space is a bit stark and cold.
Maybe is they tried to develop the downstairs as a cocktail bar it would attract more of the Jesmond set and generate "the buzz."
Hi, I was slightly disappointed with our meal. I think we were perhaps unlucky as they seemed understaffed and the staff worked like Trojans; there was little delay in service, but it all seemed a bit frantic and my main course was luke warm - as if it had been standing a while. It was both my husband and my birthday celebration - and it didn't feel special. I've been before when it did feel like an occasion.
The food was good as always, but not as good as expected. (not hot) Also, and this might not be the restaurant fault - there was a general whiff of B.O where we were sitting - not sure if staff or people we were sitting next too! - it definitely coloured our visit.
I would try it again, but for the price, a bit let down this visit.
We went for the set menu for lunch. Food was amazing and such great value. Would highly recommend visiting.
Wonderful range of delicious dishes. Could not fault any of it. Great mixture of flavours, would definitely recommend to anyone...vegetarian or meat eater.
The food was phenomenal. We were going to go for the prix fixe menu, but the options on the a la carte were too good to pass up. We only got starters and mains but the meal came with many extra canapes and amuse bouches, so in the end we were stuffed. Would definitely go again.
Absolutely outstanding - second time for us and looking forward to getting the third booked in! Knowledgable staff who interacted with us - we like to talk! Nice and relaxed atmosphere- not formal in any sense. Couldn’t recommend it more highly.
Fantastic service, the best food we have ever eaten, an experience that makes all the difference to fine dining, can’t wait to return again
Heard rave reviews from friends so had high expectations. We travelled from the west of Durham for the experience and were not disappointed. We would definitely recommend anyone to visit.
Very good. All the issues we experienced previously were not experienced on this visit.
We were uncomfortable as there was no heating on and the place was cold.
Service was impeccable, and the food was incredible. A lot of thought and care clearly went into every dish.
Lovely meal as always. Good service and good ambiance for a Monday evening. Thanks to the team.
2nd time visiting Peach and Loaf for lunch, delicious food, lovely serving staff and the chef's attention to detail and flavour lovely, can't wait to go back
A great restaurant for all occasions and fine dining with friendly and attentive service
An incredible dining experience. Service is exceptional and food is outstanding. Worth the slightly higher prices for the whole experience
It was very, very disappointing. Table booked for 8pm yet did not sit down until 8.30. This would not have been a problem but meant the beef had sold out that we all wanted. We struggled to pick an alternative. Scallops were warm (they may have meant to be) but one of the fish main courses was cold (despite the plate being hot). Not sure why we were not offered the restaurant week menu which would have been far better.
On the plus side the lamb main course was excellent as was the replacement beef dish (offered as shin of beef but we think it was the beef course from the restaurant week menu), the staff were very apologetic, we were given a free bottle of wine and the bill was discounted by about £100. However, we would have much preferred a night to remember rather than one to forget.
We had an amazing meal during restaurant week. The dishes were excellent. Felt really full. Fantastic value
It was honestly outstanding and beyond my expectations.
From the minute you arrive you really feel well looked after and the chefs are in full view so you feel like you're an extention of their kitchen.
Throughout the meal you're given little treats to try all of which are unique.
For a special occassion this is definitely a place I recommend and would say it's one of the best resturants in the North of England.
Wonderful food and great atmosphere. Will be back very soon 🙂
Absolutely amazing, food outstanding. Staff welcoming and attentive but not overbearing. All staff knowledgable about food and drinks. Would definitely recommend to everyone
Fantastic food as usual. A real gem of a restaurant for the North East that is well established.
Our absolutely favourite restaurant, love to see the action over the pass, food is totally exceptional, great staff, lovely ambience
Creative, beautiful plating, seasonal produce and fantastic “treats” - the amuse bouche is to die for
Could not recommend more highly
Excellent food! The canapés in between courses were an excellent surprise too. Only issue we had was that we were too full for desert. Would definitely go back for the a la carte
I have a wheat and diary intolerance and they adapted the menu for me. It was beautiful. Fully recommend. We forgot to take photo of the main, which was amazing! The small dishes in between courses were amazing. Stuffed but just managed dessert!
Excellent as always.
As well as the delicious chosen courses, Peace and Loaf always add to the experience with lots of tasty titbits before the starter and main course.
A lovely place to spend a relaxed midweek lunchtime.
Excellent lunch.... high quality food and high standards. Very pleasant and unpretentious staff. Enjoyed it very much!
First visit due to a special occasion and spotting this menu during restaurant week. Wont be our last!
I've dined at peace and loaf numerous times over the past three years and view it as a treat.
i was disappointed with the latest experience, the majority of the amus beox were deep fried and bland.
the main course was served luke warm
the starter was lovely, but everything else that i was served fell below standards of previous trips.
i don't see myself visiting anytime soon, which is a shame as i viewed Peace and Loaf as one of the top restaurants in Newcastle
Memorable and exceptional quality.
Brilliant. Food and service absolutely amazing!!!!
Fantastic food - good atmosphere. Set menu is excellent value. We will be back!
Our 5th time frequenting this amazing place. Outstanding service, food and drinks as always. Reccomend to everyone we chat to
Was a lunchtime, freezing cold in the restaurant. Not much atmosphere. Started and canopes lovely but main not great so much the it was removed from the bill
Excellent innovative food. Lovely friendly attentive staff.
I treated my friend to a meal at Peace and Loaf for her birthday last year. We were both so enthused that we went again this year. The food is excellent and just so interesting - and can cater for those who don't or can't eat certain things, with no fuss. The staff are superb - friendly, informative and helpful without ever being intrusive. In fact, brilliant as the chef is, the staff are just as important in making it a special evening out.
Food and plates were only just warm
Food poorly presented ! Some flavours were nice/interesting and the little nibbles served before the meal were tasty. But the two starters we had and the two main courses were of poor quality and a bit ‘confused’
Overall it was disappointing we didn’t send anything back (when you’re out having a nice time it’s unpleasant to have to complain and the restaurant was quite full). We did say at the end of the meal that we were disappointed and they took our first round of drinks off the bill!
Wouldn’t return !
Outstanding food and outstanding service, i've always come away with the feeling that i've had a really good experience
Always love going to Peace and Loaf, the service and food is exceptional. The only reason I didn’t give five stars is because both my husband and I found the new seating downstairs very uncomfortable, the seat height is too high for the table. My husband even struggled to get in! Just something to be mindful of when choosing where to sit!
