Great service, great atmosphere, fabulous gin 👌🏼
A greatly welcome and more refined addition to Newcastles's social scene. Highly recommended!
Great location, excellent selection, great staff. Venue is awesome
The drinks were lovely
However despite our best efforts we could only get 3 drinks in 2 hours the service was really bad.
We ordered a 3 rd round but the ordered was forgotten so we left and went to the Cri around the corner.
Shame the drinks were good.
Ally was THE BEST bar staff. She was SO chirpy and engaged with every one of our party of 5. She was knowledgeable and fun. 10 / 10 ! Thanks for the DELICIOUS cocktails.
The service was really slow. Disappointing. We could of had more drinks if it didn’t take so long! Doing the business a disservice by taking so long.
Service was disappointing and they clearly had an agenda to sell specific Gin.
We were missing food from our share platter.
Overall a disappointing experience.
We had a great night tasting the delicious gins whilst enjoying a cheese platter. The bar staff had great knowledge of the drinks and we're helpful with their suggestions. A great place to bring visitors from out of town. We will be returning more frequently, the ambience is fantastic!
Good range of gins and spirits, including the Earp collection of ‘home made’ gins and limoncello.
Staff were extremely helpful and friendly! Loved the cocktails and cheeseplate! Would (and have) definitely recommend a few sneaky drinks here!
Fantastic atmosphere, service was amazing! The cocktails were all very delicious, I think they have the best espresso martini in Newcastle!
Drinks were lovely but staff not so much. Felt like we were not wanted and even spoken to rudely at times. Was my second visit and probably won't be back unfortunately.
Wonderful experience! A must place to go! The Gin alone is worth it! Great food just not a lot of options. Try the Rhi-barbie cocktail
A really enjoyable afternoon spoilt only by the waitress who was a little rude, unfriendly and appeared to not want to be at work. Hope she is ok
2nd visit here. 1st visit 5 stars.
This time arrived 10 minutes early and had to wait over 30 min in the corner before being seated on the lounge which was not comfy.
Then waited another 30 minutes plus before our first drink.
A really beautiful space with excellent Gin, Cocktails and Food. Extremely friendly, accommodating staff - nothing was too hard to make happen. Overall, fabulous experience.
Earp gets the trifecta with great service, great gin, great food!!
This is the latest must visit bar in Newcastle. Clever decor that feels inviting. The staff are exceptional. Nicely done
Amazing experience. We had a host who looked after us incredibly from beginning to end.
Great fun. Early afternoon staff (Taylor) were awesome. Unfortunately the evening shift had clearly had a tough week and were slow, surly and aggressive. Great fun, great food, better trained staff and this place is a winner. No.8 Gin + Mediterranean Tonic the highlight.
Great food and drinks and affordable. Great value
Had a very enjoyable night catching up with friends. The staff were very friendly and ensured everything was going well by checking in on us.
Will definitely be back.
Enjoyed sitting at the bar and watching cocktails being prepared.Bar staff very knowledgeable and delivered excellent service.Would be happy to come back and recommend it to friends
It’s always cold inside.
Luckily we warm up quick with cocktails. The male staff are super friendly and knowledgeable which is awesome.
Food was lovely, even though the food menu is very small. We shared a fabulous cheese and fruit platter, delicious warm olives and a barley risotto. Of course the reason to go are the wonderful cocktails and gin - both of which were superb. We went on a Wednesday night and there was only one other group so it was fairly quiet and easy to hear each other.
Awesome addition to the Newcastle relaxed bar scene.
Food is excellent. We loved everything on the menu
The gins are so beautifully and individually crafted. We enjoyed the flight presentation. The food was delicious with the burrata being sensational. Very helpful, friendly staff. The night was memorable for many good reasons.
Always a pleasure to visit Earp... the limoncello never fails to please!
Really great atmosphere, staff were friendly and knowledgable of their product and service, will definitely be back!!
Great atmosphere. Food, drinks and staff are very knowledgeable and friendly
Staff friendly and professional. Food delicious and the lemoncillo yum
Our was delivered quickly and was delicious. Waiters were attentive and the drinks generous in size. Loved the atmosphere of the distillery on show.
The bar manager was excellent, knew so much about all of the products he was serving and had personally been involved in the process of making some of his own. The tasting flight was great and being talked through the different options and flavours topped it off perfectly. Little hidden gem at the back of carrington, will absolutely be going back again.
Had a wonderful time tasting the gin. The place was awesome
Great gin Lovely atmosphere & good food the perfect combo
Had a great time at Earp Distillery celebrating my birthday with friends.
Our server gave excellent recommendations & invented a delicious cocktail for my friend, ‘The Llama Surprise’. He was very patient & accomodating, even when we were indecisive and offered us a larger table when one became available.
I love the relaxed vibe at Earp & how the place transforms as the sun sets.
The mushroom barley risotto is one of my favourite dishes anywhere!
Would help if staff let us know when kitchen was closing. Also how much food to order as a guide. We were starving and ended up having to order bread at 9 pm. Also staff left the plates on the table and needed prompting to take. The girls was v friendly however.
This is a good quality addition to casual drink/informal dining experiences in inner Newcastle. The design is done well and the choice of some small plates to accompany great drink choices is good. The choice of music and playlist to add a bit more ambience would be useful.
Such a tricky review- great venue, great food and great cocktails. But freezing cold and poor service and no specials / very small menu. Not cheap. I’m blaming Covid but one of our guests got plates for everyone because no-one else did....that’s not Covid. Not rude....just got the feeling we were a bit annoying, ordering food n all. Maybe a bit less focus on being cool and a bit more focus on hospitality? Sad as last visit was a solid 9. Plan on giving them the benefit of the doubt and visiting again.
