My husband and I were very disappointed by our visit to The Hudson.
There was a very long list of dishes from the menu that were not available and given the 4 plate offer and the small main dish menu meant that there was very little choice in the end - there was no offer to include extra dishes in the 4 plate deal to compensate which might have helped. Then there was none of the wine left that we selected in top of the menu issues and despite this when we were offered an alternative we were told we’d have to pay the difference for the more expensive option!
When the food did arrive it was pretty average with not a huge amount of flavour on either meal so pretty disappointing all round really. Then to add insult to injury they added a service change to the bill disputed it only being a table for 2 and the issues we had experienced.

* Food great but very small portions.
* Our order was taken and then the waiter came back to tell us that what most of us had ordered was not on the menu as they had ran out. This was only 1pm. Very disappointing.
* All waiting staff and bar staff were fantastic. Particular shout out to Sean and Steven.
* Restaurant is nice and big and roomy, therefore, you don't feel like you're on top of each other like some restaurants.
* The Hudson is nicely placed right outside a metro so ideal for getting to.
* All in all, I would go back, however, not necessarily for food, maybe just drinks.

Excellent Sunday Dinner, the portion we received was massive. The deserts we had were amazing as well.

The service was unprofessional and chaotic, the chicken was so dry. We got offered condiments as we were finishing, we did not get offered further drinks. The staff were very miserable. I understand people need to train at new jobs but it was probably the worst customer experience I have received in a restaurant

The food and cocktails at The Hudson are fantastic, the atmosphere was nice and the fact you can see the kitchen is a nice touch.

My friend and I had food within restaurant month and it wasnt very busy for a Saturday evening, but good value for the food.

That being said, there was a table of 4 near us who left a while after their starters because they had waited far too long for their food, and a table on the other side of us who hadn’t even had their starters by the time we were eating our mains, and they arrive not long after us.

We were asked if we would like dessert, we said we would like 5 minutes to decide, we were not asked again after more than 20 minuted, so we didn’t end up with one as too much time passed and we wanted to leave and enjoy the rest of our evening.

Thank you for the birthday plate you made up for my friend it was a lovely touch. I will definitely recommend this place and I will be back, however the service is lacking in places and may need to be reviewed.

Although food was very disappointing, the bar area is lovely . The waitress was very pleasant & had warned us the sea bass had head & tail on , so we requested it to be taken off . But more of the red curry sauce was required . Others in party had chicken Kiev which they said was dry .

The waiting staff were attentive and friendly,they couldn't do enough for us but were not overbearing, the burger was really tasty, although the plate would have looked better if they had put a little salad on it, but the sweet potato fries were perfect. LOVE the Cocktails. We have been a couple of times now { and both times sat in one of their more private booths} and although we were not celebrating anything this time it felt just as special.

I’m usually a fan of The Hudson but this visit was disappointing. Not only was the service slow & inattentive but the food fell well below par. One of the starters was watermelon & feta salad, unfortunately the main component of this was a olive & caper tapande which ruined his starter. I had the crispy calamari, which was neither crispy nor hot, main course pork was tough but overall okay we were asked if we’d enjoyed our meal by the “new” customer relations manager & after mentioning our concerns with the meal, all we got was a smile & a, hope we do better next time, not even a gesture of goodwill. Might give this place a miss for awhile due to this experience.

Hello Ian, Thank you for joining us last Sunday and for taking the time to leave Feedback. We do not have a Customer Relations Manager - I believe it was the General Manager who spoke to you. We received the feedback regarding the Tapanade not being to your taste during our check back. You also kindly gave us feedback on the server. However, your additional comments about the Squid and Pork were not mentioned at the time. If you would like a chat, please give us a call on 0191 247 4044

The food was absolutely superb. Every course was cooked to perfection, seasoned beautifully and aesthetically pleasing. It's just a shame the service wasn't as good as the food. We were left waiting for very long periods of time for drinks, even for the water. We also had to walk ourselves over to the till to pay the bill, as none of the waiters came to collect payment, even though the receipt and card were highly visible waiting at the end of the table. I would still recommend The Hudson for the food and ambience. Hopefully it was a one off for the service, but they do seem understaffed.

Service was excellent as was the starter (fish taco) and dessert (pavlova) but the mains which I was really looking forward to, the beef randang, was really bland and disappointing.

We were very pleasantly surprised at both the quality and the portions- just right. This is an excellent venue for a special meal with a nice entrance bar- don't be put off by present scaffold outside whilst some work is carried out on the building. We went for lunch and so it was relatively quiet which is a shame because it is well worth a visit...it's only a short walk from centre and next to rail station for a welcome home or cheery goodbye meal. Highly recommended

First time visiting The Hudson to celebrate our 5th wedding anniversary and it won’t be the last. The restaurant is beautifully decorated and our booth that we sat in was lovely. The service was slightly slow but the food definitely made up for this. The 2-4-1 cocktails were amazing and went down too well. Only slight gripe was that when ordering our mains (no starters) they brought out my husbands side veg as a starter when it was supposed to be with his main. But overall an amazing evening in a beautiful establish, celebrating with my husband, thank you to The Hudson & Team x

The restaurant was not very busy when we arrived and as such the atmosphere was a little sedate.
Service was excellent and the choice of food was comprehensive.
The 2 for 1 cocktails started the meal off, with my wife choosing the prawn skewer and I the crab croissant, both extremely tasty.
For a main, we both selected the fillet steak, rare and medium rare, and these turned out to be exceptionally well cooked.
A reasonably priced bottle of Pinot Noir helped the meal along.
As the restaurant filled up the atmosphere improved resulting in an overall great experience.
Would fully recommend.

Having seen the reviews i was looking forward to my booking. However when i was given the menu it was not what i had seen on the website,so when i enquired about what the menu i had seen i was told this was the only one. I am not really a man that likes lots of small plates i like one big one so it wasnt a great experiance for me as most of the menu was just small plates. The quality of food was ok though and the staff were pleasant and helpful.

Visited the Hudson on several occasions before and usually found everything really good. We visited on Saturday 8th June, food was lovely, restaurant very clean and tidy, service not the best, waited 30 mins for drinks, vegetables served with starters and service charges automatically added to bill !! When we pointed out about the drinks the lady did take them off the bill.

I will return at some point in the future but not just yet.
