Booked a table for here last night for the first time. Lovely place inside and looks very appealing. However waiting over 30 minutes for a drink is not acceptable. Pornstar martini was watered down and didn’t taste anything like previous I’ve had before. I ordered the stack burger and my partner ordered the katsu burger. Both burgers came on a ‘school dinner tray’ - the tray kept moving around on the table while you were trying to eat, annoying. The burger was awful, overcooked and extremely salty. We were so disappointed with this place and won’t be coming back. Go elsewhere in Newcastle, there’s plenty more to choose from.

Food was outstanding, best chips we have ever tasted! Cocktails were lovely and even better that they were on offer (2 for 1).
Service was great, the girl was very attentive. Restaurant was lovely and clean and our little booth was very cosy. Look forward to booking again when we next visit.

I recently dined here as part of the stay at home package with the Vermont and will not be coming back ever. Although we essentially had a free 3 course dinner I feel like I wanted money back, it took an hour and a half to have two starters and a drink each. The food was very bad aswell. The lamb bolognese tasted bland and was swimming in water and the burger was not any better than a burger van standard. I was very upset with the quality of food. To then wait half an hour for servers to take our plates away and we had to ask for deserts! Meanwhile three other tables came and went in the time we were there getting seen to faster than us. It almost felt like we weren’t getting a good service because of the deal we had. In the end I felt powerless as we walked out the restaurant without having to pay and felt like I couldn’t say anything. This has put me off dining here ever again

20 minute wait for drinks

Then 45 minute wait for starters

Another 30 minutes after for mains

Flat pints

Had the nerve as they were handing the bill saying we needed to get out the restaurant cause they need the table

After a slighly chaotic start where we were served drinks and forgotten for about twenty minutes while others got served, we had a very friendly waitress who was great throughout. We all thoroughly enjoyed our food and thought the Sunday Lunch menu great value for money. Food was delicious. We sat in a booth which made it more cosy but the main restaurant is quite large with high ceilings so lacked a little in atmosphere. I would recommend this to anyone wanting a good value, delicious Sunday lunch after shopping in Newcastle.

We arrived for our booking, the table was not set up so had to sit at a bare table until it was done by the waitress.
We ordered two drinks whilst waiting for our two friends arriving, when they arrived it was over 15 minutes before anyone came to ask if they wanted a drink. The drinks arrived quickly and then no one came to take out food order.
After being at the table for almost an hour a waitress came and told us we would have to leave in 10 minutes as the table was needed for a party of 10!
After telling her 3 times we hadn’t eaten, and hadn’t even given a food order yet she went to speak to a manager and then someone came and took out food order.
After that a large 10 seat table was squashed in beside us.
The experience went further down hill with everything feeling rushed and as if we were a problem to everyone.
The side dish failed to arrive and when asked for it, it was brought and slammed down with a “enjoy” comment.
We had to ask if we could order sweets and the coffee which was ordered with the sweets didn’t arrive full stop - we didn’t query it as by then our experience of the Hudson was done!
I appreciate a lot of venues are suffering with staff shortages but this wasn’t the case with The Hudson, they’re were several times when there were 3-4 waiter/waitresses standing together at the desk idle.
Bad experience and won’t be returning I’m afraid.

Big thank you to Sonia who was fantastic, there was a group of 10 of us and she was polite, bubbly and friendly to is all.
Food was lovely also. Couple of points we were disappointed with, our booking was for 330pm and we didn't get served our first drink until nearly 355pm, considering we only has the bottomless prosecco deal until 5pm we didn't feel like this was ideal. We also didn't realise there was a cap on the amount of bottles you can have, whether this is in the small print somewhere I don't know. Also I'm not a prude however, there was a group of girls that were on a hen doo sitting not far from us and one was sitting in a black lace bra, not ideal wear for 3 o clock in the afternoon and it lowered the tone of the restaurant considerably.

when we booked i advised that this visit was for my wifes Birthday .We did requested a booth when we booked but unfortunately there was none available however the seating we were given was more than acceptable.

As the booking was for a birthday celebrationi would of expected that this would have been acknoledged in some way when we arrived.

Having said that the Staff were very attentive service was excellent .

We will be arranging to come back again hopefully very soon

Thank you
Michael

Allergy information was not followed. Service was very poor and unprofessional and we felt we were the problem as one of our party has a severe allergy to gluten and dairy.

We paid £140 for bottomless brunch and had 2 drinks each. We were told the bar was too busy to make another order. This wasn’t the case as the their were bar staff at the bar talking to each other.

Also none of the kitchen staff had gloves on whilst handling food (contamination) or hair net/hats.

Very disappointed as it was for a birthday.

Won’t be going back.

Lovely aesthetic & nice food but the service was sparse & we had to wait quite a while to be offered anything, then more time for the things to arrive. Unfortunately I think the staff were too taken up by the people in the bar who were attending pre-wedding, to be attentive enough in the restaurant

I ended up drinking the water as no one came over to take further drinks orders. Also, they tried to charge us around £20 too much.
