Really lively and fun! Quick service and lovely waiters
The table we were sat at outside was horrible. It had no hearing around it, the table was filthy and unsuitable for us. We were disappointed and left early.
Having been to market shaker many times since reopening following lockdown and experiencing amazing service, I was shocked at how poor it was during my latest visit.
We waited nearly 30 minutes from ordering to receiving our drinks with no apology for the delay not a thing.
When I asked the female who was managing bookings why it was taking so long I was told there might be a backlog in receipts. Again, no apology and prompt action to see what was happening just that comment that didn’t help me and my party at all.
When you’re allocated a time slot it’s so important to have quick service otherwise this prevents you from actually spending more because if you have to wait such a long time for a round of drinks the time could be gone before you have a chance for another.
Hopefully when we return another time this problem will be rectified.
Friendly service from most staff. Slow service for some simple drinks such as spirit and mixer.
I have been there 2 times and have waited 2 hours for drinks each time. Absolutely awful!
Food was absolutely gorgeous. However when we were there there were so many problems with the app which resulted to a few of my friends not getting drinks, and then when our time ran out on the tables and they still had no drinks, they asked for money back and were refused. We understood it wasn’t the staff’s problem that the app was down, but that also wasn’t our problem as customers either. A refund should have definitely been offered.
Really nice evening celebrating my birthday, ambience was a little quiet, would’ve like to hear the music in the garden considering that’s the best thing about shaker... the tunes. Amazing night out though and can’t wait until we are back to normal.
Enjoyable. Drinks took 40 mins to get to our table, only down side.
my favourite bar in Newcastle! Great atmosphere and great staff
Waited 35 minutes on a drink and place smelt like cheese.
Went on a Friday afternoon so not too busy nice table warm heaters nearby and good drinks service. Only downside very uneven floor (false grass) laid over concrete I assume so dips a lot all over so tricky in heels as if you went over you’d be in trouble.
Great place and excellent service. The staff were so helpful and friendly , with defo go again . Nice & warm on a chilly day with all the heaters
Nice atmosphere in the beer garden area but drinks took way too to come. When booking was finished we politely asked if there was anyway we could stay on longer and take one of the many many empty tables outside but a couple of members of a taff were extremely rude with their response. Was my birthday too...
Staff were extremely rude to us for asking simple questions in a polite manner.
Large outdoor area, easy to order drinks on the app, fast service
Very slow service on drinks and very rowdy atmosphere - felt almost pre-Covid
Absolute great venue - everything was amazing, including the staff! The pizza, you can’t beat!!! Only down side was the 2 heaters at both sides of our table didn’t work, the staff tried lighting them but said they were broken.
Brilliant as always, 2nd time I’ve been since reopening but always on our list to book
£16 for a pizza and it was that wet that all the toppings cheese amd tomato slopped off. We were ill looking at it.
Me and my friends came here on sat night. Service for brilliant and super fast. Lovely place and will defo be back
Had a great few hours, it was arranged very well, staff were great and felt very safe
Last minute table booking the night before for a get together with mates... from start to finish everything was amazing!
Staff are impeccable! Fast, friendly, professional & courteous! Table was dry (even though the skies were not)
Pizzas are amazing and came piping hot!
Toilets were immaculate & everything was “Covid friendly”
ZERO negatives about our visit! Thanks guys xx
Excellent pizza options full of flavour. Drinks are lovely and atmosphere even better
so expensive and poor service. took ages to connect to the app. drinks came fast but food took an hour! water never came. however we enjoyed the tunes, i think it would be better to be seated in the main courtyard next time. the toilets and interior are nice too.
Service was very slow waited for 50 mins for drinks to arrive.
Not quite what we expected. Very loud, no heater nearby and plastic cups. Pizza was okay.
No heaters worked, slow service, staff members not the most helpful when trying to swap tables to nearer a heater - when there was plenty of tables free nearby.
Good outdoor space under cover and with some working heaters. Good value but poor service: drinks take a long time to arrive. Despite making a booking we could not order food at 8:20pm because the pizza chef finishes at 9pm?! Overall disappointing.
So exspensive!!!!!! Not good for a student on a budget
Really fast service, easy to order on the app, friendly staff.
10/10, not bad prices, a good selection of drinks / flavoured vodkas, the pizza is lush too
Good atmosphere, however waited 35 minutes for our drinks to arrive after asking the first time 20 minutes from our order we got told it takes a long time to make a cocktail and the waiter was defensive rather than apologetic. Asked again at 30 minutes as our food arrived before our drinks. Never had to wait 30 minutes for a drink to be served as a result we left before our time slot ended because we were not confident our drinks would arrive in sufficient time.
Nice atmosphere, great service and could see tables being cleaned etc all the time. Ordering from the app is really easy.
Heaters don’t work / no gas which was not good as they advertised heaters and it was very cold
We didn't get food. It looked good though. The table service was good and the w8r app worked perfect.
We got a 4 pint jug raspberry mojito and a 4 pint jug cosmopolitan and they were bad. The mojito was average at best but the Cosmo just tasted like cordial. Really disappointing.
It's got a good atmosphere, good and fun music, I'd go again if just not order those particular drinks.
Well organised the guy who showed us to our seat was very good and was very in control of the bookings. Lighting and covers were perfect The servers were polite and very good with our orders. Already booked to return.
Could do with some heaters for colder weather, and if there was music we couldn’t hear it. Much more expensive than normal but fair enough given the circumstances
The app didn’t really work when we went, too many people were on it. Which caused one person to order for 11 more people. Also, the bouncers wouldn’t put the heaters on when it was 9 degrees outside at 1:30. All u need to do is to put the heaters on and everyone will be happy, especially when it is freezing!!
The jugs of cocktails tasted as though they had no alcohol in them...all 6 of my group agreed. Maybe we are alcoholics but I don’t think so.
It’s ideal though otherwise tho if I return I won’t get a jug again
Venue looks nice and was a pleasant experience until the cold sets in and you realise that the gas heaters are for show as they have no gas and that they weren’t serving food
