Loved the Xmas dinner - the food was outstanding and the staff were lovely! The disabled toilet could do with a clear out and tidy up!

Peace and loaf is an outstanding venue with amazing food. We have had a tasty meal every single time and cannot find any faults. The decor has recently been changed and it is stunning. The waiters are outstanding and put the heart into their jobs.
We ordered the rib of beef for 2 people and requested it be cooked how the chef likes it and it was mouthwatering

We had booked several weeks in advance to secure a booking for 5 at this recommended restaurant and it was worth the planning. A superb evening with expertly prepared and presented food with unusual combinations that absolutely worked in harmony .
Staff were knowledgeable and welcoming .
Please try this dining experience you won’t regret it.

Dined with my sister for her birthday. The musac was a bit loud when we arrived but it later quietened down so that it didn't interfere with our conversation. The food was delicious and the service was impeccable. If I lived in the northeast I would definately go there again.

Really disappointing meal given the reputation and compared to previous visits.
Apart from the haddock starter, complex dishes over which time had obviously been spent in preparation were generally not especially tasty. Food was also invariably lukewarm - for example the broccoli side dish came on a separate plate extremely hot to the touch but the contents were tepid.
Whilst not expecting huge portions my own sweet was microscopic - about half the size of my companions' servings.

Would have given everything 5 stars but it was a very cold night and both myself and my husband were cold in the restaurant. Towards the end of our meal we were both really feeling the cold. There was a small radiator behind me but it was just warm. The high ceiling does not make for warmth.

first visit and won’t be the last! Food was outstanding and every dish was bursting with flavour. Don’t be fooled by the small looking portions, they really are filling along with the complimentary tasters inbetween servings. An absolute gem of a restaurant and can’t wait to re-visit

Struggling to find fault with anything at Peace and Loaf. The food was incredible, the service impeccable the ambience perfect... we celebrated my husband’s birthday here and loved that the experience was special and personal whilst also welcoming and relaxed. Can’t thank the staff enough for all they did. We shared the beef rib and it was to die for - please don’t take that off the menu! And the tasters we had were just the perfect finishing touch. Amazing!

Chosen by a soft southener up for a family celebration and based purely on previous reviews. If anything this exceeded expectation. Fantastic food, lovely informal but attentive and caring service. Amuse bouches to die for.
This is scarcely a valid criticism but we could have got away without ordering the side dishes as the dishes plus the extras left us feeling happily replete, to the extent that we did not have room for puds.
A terrific experience and in the unlikely event of a return to Newcastle I would have no hesitation in going back.

It was a joint birthday celebration and there were 6 of us there.
Food was fantastic as per usual.
I wasn’t sure about the table by the kitchen door and each time it opened there was a cool fraught. Having said that my son in law (1 of the birthdays) loves being able to see into the kitchen and chat to the chef.

We had a very early lunch and the place was quiet, with a level of music which allowed us to converse easily. The food and service were excellent, and we would recommend Peace and Loaf to anyone who wants a tasty and interesting meal.

Our meal was superb as always. For me the little Thai fishcakes served as part of the appetizer were my favourite thing about the meal. That and the chocolates at the end of the meal which were presented to us for our anniversary which we were celebrating.

A lunchtime treat to celebrate 3 birthdays and a doctorate and it did not disappoint. We'd heard and read how good Peace and Loaf is and if anything it exceeded expectations. The service was friendly and impeccable and the food was divine. Our first visit but not our last.

Really really good food in a relaxed atmosphere
It’s like 2 Michelin star food in a no fuss restaurant
Raw beef pie is a stand out dish.
We wished it was closer to our home in the midlands!
