No food so couldn’t rate that. Waited half an hour for drinks so that’s about all I can rate this on and they weren’t great for the money either.

No atmosphere

There was only 2 cocktail options available

We were really excited to visit but left feeling disappointed

The cocktails we did have we did not enjoy

Overpriced

We were a bit early and was told to come back which was fine but found the doorman very rude. We did this then stood in a queue, when we got took to our table it was dirty and had not been cleaned from previous people, they did clean it after we were seated then we ordered our drinks which took 15 mins to come . Would not come back

The food was lovely and the atmosphere was good on the whole. The toilets were a major let down, people packed into the space with virtually no one wearing a face mask …..it made me extremely nervous! Definitely a major risk of COVID contraction in there.

Wasn’t clear on the booking that the table was only for two hours. But when I went to apologise for keeping the table up I was met with the guy with the iPad (already seemed unhappy with having to deal with drunk people all night) very short tempered with me. I kept apologising but he just kept telling us to leave and that it was very clear about the time we had. I was really upset walking away and left my birthday drinks a little cloudy. I should have checked but I don’t think i deserved the way he spoke to me when I was just trying to work out why we were being kicked out

Visited on a Saturday. This visit really did make our evening - it was our last venue of the night and the atmosphere was amazing. The staff worked hard, never stopped so service was as good as can be in such a big venue during the pandemic. The current restrictions meant that the security had to be stricter on their guests, ensuring all parties remained near their tables but they ensured that all were still able to have the best time. Thank you for being the highlight of our night.

Lots of drinks were sold out when we arrived. Seated outside which was dry and warm under cover. Not much of an atmosphere but music wasn’t too loud so could easily chat at our table.

The toilets were not in a good state. No soap to wash hands with and cubicles were messy.

We came yesterday and it was absolutely terrible service. We couldn't get the app to work, member of staff came over and he couldn't get it to work either, manager came over and he couldn't either and wouldn't just take a drinks order we therefore left and will not be returning. Table service would have been much better!

Absolute dive of a place waited nearly 30 minutes for 2 drinks when they had about 6 people behind the bar and only about 2 runners handing out drinks. Partner went to bathroom to which only had one loo roll in the full ladies toilets disgusting was booked to stay for 2 hours but stayed for 45 minutes. Also drinks served in plastic glasses.

Service from normal bartenders and waiters was good but the service from the manager/supervisor and bouncers was shocking. We were Ignored, forgotten about, disregarded, no care for the customers at all.

Drinks took a while to come on table which was a bit annoying having to speak to the bar staff every 20 mins wondering how long they would be. Food was good and so was atmosphere despite the bouncers telling people to keep the noise down every 2 minutes.

Best place in newcastle! Definitely would recommend for everyone to visit especially if your a younger group of people, cheap drinks, very lively music and just a nice place to go especially with no clubs being open this is the next best thing to feel as though your in a club.

I booked for 11.30pm for on Mon 7th June for my birthday and we arrived early by about 10 mins, a host greeted us at the door but wasn’t very friendly, saying we arrived too early and she wasn’t sure she could sit us even though it wasn’t too busy inside. We did arrive at our table and ordered through the W8R app - we ordered 3 drinks (I have the email receipts) and they were accepted by the bar but after 40 minutes at around midnight they still hadn’t arrived to our table. Normally I wouldn’t complain but tables that were seated after us had drinks arriving first, and some of the staff who passed our table also ignored us when we tried to get their attention to ask about the drinks. One of my friends went up to the bar to ask but the bar staff ignored her at first and then didn’t appear bothered about the problem, I understand that they must be busy but we were left feeling frustrated and after another 10 mins they demanded to see our order receipts which felt to us that we were in the wrong. We left after our first drinks finally arrived after almost an hour of being at Marketshaker, we normally have a really good experience at this bar but we were really disappointed with how monday night turned out, especially because it was my birthday and we had planned to stay there until closing time.
