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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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

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 !

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!

Haven't visited for awhile but the food and services are still excellent.
We had fillet steak which was sublime and cooked to perfection with triple handcooked chips. Delicious. All of the superb extras meant we were too full for pudding.
Resolved to return more often.
