Beautiful restaurant all the staff were very welcoming beautiful food and atmosphere will 100% be back best food I’ve ate in months in a restaurant
The restaurant is beautifully decorated, staff are smart and tentative and the food was delicious. Amazed I've not been until now. Definitely going back again and was such good value with the done out to help out being continued. They also accept taste cards.
Thank you Gemma for such a lovely review which will we pass on to all of the team and yes hurry back.
Pleasantly surprised by my first visit. It’s a dark room with blinds down which is a shame because there are views and sun was shining.
Food and service were excellent and I will return
Excellent choice of food and fantastic value for money. Presentation great, staff fantastic.
Only disappointment was I had been charged for a bottle of wine, quickly rectified. Very good experience
Thank you so much for lovely review apologies again about the wine, slip of a finger on the till! Glad it was sorted swiftly for you. Hope to see you back again soon.
Very lovely quality food - very nice staff and ambience. Lovely Sunday lunch outing. Quiet atmosphere.
Thank you Louise and see you again very soon.
Excellent menu. Lovely location. Great views. Food was excellent value for money although the drinks were a little more expensive! We will definitely return
Thank you Jill for lovely comments and we hope to see you again soon.
Great services and safety measures followed. Food was to such a high standard and great choices on the menu
Thank you for wonderful review and we hope to see you again soon. Kind regards
Food was excellent but we received it no more than 2 mins after ordering. white wine was overpriced and served warm. When I asked the waiter he was initially very dismissive and only changed it after I said this should be cold. Beautiful surroundings but very underwhelming with the whole experience. Very disappointed as we booked on the recommendation of a friend .
Thank you for your review and our sincere apologies for the issues you encountered and these will be investigated and rectified as you can see from other reviews this is not the norm for us. We do hope that you will not be deterred from visiting us again in the future which would very much like. Thank you again and we do hope to see you soon.

Lovely environment with good controls in place to support customers.

Amazing food, service and venue highly recommend and a great Sunday lunch!
Thank you for lovely comments and glad you enjoyed your lunch we hope to see you again soon.
Sunday lunch with hubby , the only downside I had ..... the vegetables were too al dente ..... I left them all as I can't eat hard veggies...... I will return though and just ask to cook them a bit more ..... but it was a lovely place and nice staff
Thank you for comments and yes please do let us know when you are next in regarding veg and we will cook exactly how you like it. Apologies it was not to your taste but will be next time. Hope to see you again soon.
Nice staff- great service
Thank you for nice comments and hope to see you again soon.
Food and service were amazing, the atmosphere was very nice also
Thank you for wonderful comments and we hope to see you again soon.
Very slow service.. Overcooked steak... And they got the bill wrong
Thank you for your comments which we do apologise for and we do hope that your issues was dealt with on the night in the correct manner.
Decent food, reasonable service. Very quiet, not much atmosphere. Pity that they abused the Eat Out to Help Out scheme by only allowing it on a la carte prices and not mentioning that until after the bill arrived.
Thank you for your comments which we do find a bit unfair as the advertising for the Eat out scheme was very clear. We stated A la Carte menu only so I am sorry if there was any confusion over this.
Lovely food and generous portions.
Service was brilliant.
Food and service was excellent. It was value for money. Would highly recommend.
Tables spaced out lovely, all staff really friendly and openly checking covid measures were in place. Food amazing! Felt relaxed and happy to be there!
Thank you for lovely reviews and delighted that you enjoyed your visit with us and we hope to see you again soon.
Dined out using the government discount. Some menu options weren't included but that was made clear at the beginning of service. We have dietary requirements which were well catered for. The waitress was really attentive without being on top of us all the time. she was lovely.
Nice quiet atmosphere, good mix of fellow diners and good views of Tyne and bridges. We would definitely visit again.
Thank you for your lovely review and we are delighted that you enjoyed your visit and were looked after. We do hope to see you again soon.
Overall experience was very good but for a venue of such quality I felt the selection of wines was very limited and also not very well stocked it took three attempts to obtain a bottle of choice.
Food of such quality deserves if required a varied and well stocked cellar in my opinion.
Great service, I'd go for more traditional options as some of the asian dishes didn't have enough spice for me for still great meal and service.
Thank you for your review and lovely comments and we hope to see you again soon.
We cannot review this restaurant as the hotel decided to close it 40minutes before we were due to eat, although our last meal there was excellent
Amazing food with a friendly service and attentive staff who really made it special with a surprise dessert for our anniversary dinner. Would definitely reccomend!
My sister and I booked to take Mam for early Mothers Day treat and we were not disappointed. Food was gorgeous, service was excellent, overall great experience and great value for money, we had the 2 course special. We will definitely be back when we are able to.
Amazing food and fantastic service , could not fault anything
Fabulous Sunday lunch as usual, great value for money.
Fantastic sunday lunch in a gorgeous dining room and very reasonably priced. Food was delicious!
Great service and chef even made something to cater for veggie’s despite it not being on the menu!
Excellent night, great service, lovely food and pleasant atmosphere
It was great value for money and I would definitely go back
Birthday meal, four of us, all delighted with each of the three courses we devoured. Good choice on the menu, a few Asian cuisine inspired dishes brought a nice depth to the choices.
Great food and excellent friendly service. Had three-course meal on voucher and was delighted that we had the choice of all dishes without supplements.
Thank you so glad you enjoyed it and hope to see you again soon.
Varied & nicely presented food. Excellent service. Unfortunately, the restaurant was very quiet and therefore lacked atmosphere.
Thank you for comments and we are glad that you enjoyed the food.
Went to the maven for an anniversary dinner. The atmosphere was very romantic and chilled. The service was very quick and we weren't kept waiting for our food. I found it very good that they offered a vegan menu and you can mix and match for same included price. The food was nice. I had the Thai chicken laska, the only thing I can say is that there was still cartilage and alot of skin left out the chicken, so it tampered with the overall quality of the food. Overall I did have a pleasant experience, will return when restraunt week is on, as quite pricey for quality otherwise.
Thank you for your comments which we very much appreciate and will pass on to the Chef. Glad to hear that you will return just as a point you mention that the food is expensive when not on offer, we do a signature menu every day of the week which is £1 more than the restaurant week menu so affordable for all. The A la carte menu is reasonably priced too for the quality of food, With that in mind, we hope to see you back before the next restaurant week offer.
Absolutely fabulous meal, couldnt fault it. Flavoursome and decent sized portions all cooked really well.
The new look in the restaurant is really classy but then it always was. Service was second to none. Wine was reasonably priced and of a very good quality. As it was a belated birthday meal it was lovely to get a free sweet at the end of the meal. We will definitely be back.
Thank you for the fantastic comments and we are delighted that you enjoyed your visit with us.
Welcomed on arrival and shown straight to our table, great. I’m not sure why service is very slow on serving drinks...my food was fine unfortunately, my partner’s wasn’t and wrong. Also tried to overcharge for included items on the bill.
Thank you for your comments which will be looked into. I am sure apologies have already been given is this was fed back to up on the night but our apologies once again.
Food was very good and great value during restaurant week. New member of staff seemed to make a few mistakes with orders and the restaurant could have been warmer but overall a good experience and we will return
Thank you for your comments which we very much appreciate and glad to hear that you will return. See you soon.
Beautiful setting in The Vermont Hotel. Lovely food, lovely staff fantastic view of Tyne Bridge
Thank you for wonderful comments see you again soon.
