Great place to eat with lovely staff. Burgers are great and loads of beers to chose from. Nice lively atmosphere without being too much. Will be back for sure.
We arrived for our table booking and had to wait in a queue to get to the door host, which was fine
When we were finally seated we were given one menu between two people, and again we made our peace with that.
We waited at least 15 minutes before managing to attract the attention of a staff member to take our order, by which time we had decided on drinks as well as food. We also ordered tap water for the table, which never arrived.
The food came promptly but the burger was burnt, and there was a wait between meals being delivered to our table too, meaning that one of us was eating whilst the other was still waiting for our food. In this time someone checked to make sure everything was okay for us.
When the food was delivered we asked for some more drinks and the staff member walked away before we were finished ordering.
We paid almost £60 for this experience, including the automatically added service charge. Our experience of being ignored, being walked away from, and eating burnt food was not worth this money.
On arrival the 2 waiting staff at the desk didn't even look up to greet us, after waiting 40 mins for our starters (bruschetta) the bread hadn't even been toasted, the server this was pointed out to clearly didn't care, the mains (dat burger & sweet potato mac n cheese) were inedible, all in all the the food was terrible and the service continued to be otrocious throughout the night.
Great food, superb value and perfect location for all things Newcastley!
Thank you for your lovely review and five star rating. We do appreciate it.
Nice Decor, good music at pleasant level.
Friendly efficient service
Pizza excellent. Good choice of vegan food
Thank you for your rating and review. We are so happy you like our vegan options.
Friendly staff, service good but food poor and parts of our order couldn’t be supplied as the fryer broke
Motorbike themed restaurant and bar mainly serving Italian inspired food and a good selection of craft beer
They need more staff, all were working very hard but could of done with some help.
The food we ordered was freshly prepared and very tasty.
Menu choice is good and outstanding value for a city centre venue
Pizzas were amazing and well worth the money. The lasagna was absolutely cremated. :( no one came back to check on us through the meal so in the end we just ate it. Good ipa selection
Fantastic stone baked pizzas for the kids and lovely pre-theatre menu for the adults. Relaxed evening atmosphere, enjoyed by all and will be returning!
Excellent value for money and super service. Food was delicious with an excellent selection of beers on offer too. Will definitely return!
Lovely place to eat a great pizza and drink an amazing pint, what more could I have asked for
Amazing pizzas, £12 for 2 course menu, great selection of beers, buzzing atmosphere. What a gem this place is.
Great food, atmosphere and service on a Saturday night! Lovely to come back again! Thanks Dat Bar : )

The service was excellent and the freshly prepared food was delicious.
Lynne its great to hear our service was up to the dat standard and our food also hit the mark! thank you for your positive feedback we hope to see you again soon, Dat Bar
Fine food and a great beer list. Lovely staff. But my word it was totally disorganised. I hope this is just post-pandemic and the staff just need training.
We're glad to hear you enjoyed our food and extensive beer list. However we are really sorry to hear our service wasn't up to the high standard dAt bAr can provide. hope you can return and experience dAt bAr in the full swing of things
Terrible service. Took 30 mins to get a menu.
Food was ok when it finally arrived.
1.5 hours for a burger and chips! Terrible

Good food, poor service: left us too long when we arrived; forgot 1 of our main courses …..
Delicious food and quick service. Definitely will return.
Great food, friendly attentive staff. Really enjoyed the bruschetta and pizza, they were lush!
Top service, food was a bit slow coming out but top quality
Amazing pizza, super friendly staff what more could you ask for
Receipt was confusing. Didn't show correct prices...including a main that cost £0.00. It also didn't add up correctly. Also no option to leave a tip as it is included in the price already, sneaky!
Good location. Bang average food. Wouldn’t rush back.
My first visit to Dat Bar and I was very impressed with the place. Good selection of food and drinks and great service. I'll be going back.
Our server was lovely, very friendly , good food maybe burgers slightly over done but other than that it was fine. Nice cool vibe. Glad to be back !
Great sharing platters, cosy booths, super service and fab pizzas this is a fun place to dine
Great new refurb, drinks were delicious as always.
Really nice good and lovely staff. Good selection of craft beers, would definitely recommend!
Seating was daft, put us on a table that you couldn't get in or out of without asking people on tables either side of you to move. Share board was nice, burger was disappointing. No mint for mojito, which on a sat night is a bit daft. Service was fine. Little niggles that spoilt overall experience of what seems a decent place.
I am so sorry you didn't enjoy your visit with us. I will pass on all your comments to the bar and restaurant heads. Thank you for taking the time to share your experience with us.
We only had drinks here but the atmosphere was great, the service was quick and friendly.
Thank you for your review.
We had an amazing time here last night, all the staff were lovely and amazing - Thank you
Thank you for your review. It is appreciated.
Really good choice of food and beer, food was excellent and staff dead friendly and helpful.
Thank you for your review.
As always, half of the beers on the board were not available. This is always frustrating when visiting datbar.
For a half empty bar, the service was extremely slow.
I am sorry our full selection wasn't available during your visit. We are working hard to get interesting supplies on our taps. Thank you for your feedback. I hope you visit us again.
Always a good choice! Lovely staff and great drinks
Thank you for your review. We appreciate your business and feedback. Hope to see you again soon.
The food was better than I was expecting. The staff were pleasant and welcoming
Thank you for taking the time to review your visit. Hope to see you again soon.
The doorman was really arrogant. The atmosphere was okau
Thank you for your feedback Phil. We use a company for doors taff and have complained about the doorman in question and he will not be manning our door from now on.
Amazing food and amazing service. Shoe string fries are to die for. We took advantage tage of the half price deal and couldn't believe how cheap our night was! Such a shame that the restaraunt was practically empty, I really hope you are still getting the customers as you really deserve the support ! Felt very safe, it was very clean, and I love the hand wash stations at the entrance.
2 courses for £10 - great value for delicious food in large portions. Music was excellent, pity it had to compete with noise from air conditioning near our table - needs must nowadays though. Friendly staff.
