Front of house were lovely. Couldn’t be nicer. However, the bar staff need to give their heads a shake. My husband queued for nearly 30 minutes to get a drink at the bar, to be ignored because he apparently pushed in front of a woman (he didn’t. He was there first). Bar staff passed on to each other not to serve him. Obviously this was their only way of gaining power over their situation. Quite sad really. We left without getting a drink and the front of house asked why we were leaving and apologised but it was too late. She did ask if we wanted her to sort it for us but we were already annoyed.
Very pretentious, seedy bar staff. Such a shame as we were in there earlier and it was lovely. Bar staff have really let you down.
Check CCTV to see how your bar staff behaved. You might want to have a chat with them.
We left and went back to our hotel INNSiDE where staff were lovely and the vibe was much better.

Really delicious cocktails. The only thing that let Tiger Hornsby down was I was expecting an actual table as I booked a week in advance. We were giving two chairs facing a black brick wall and a shelf to rest our drinks on. It really let the ambiance down.

Booked a table for 12 at 6:15, amended the booking to 6:30. Knowing that this would mean leaving at 8:15. We were told 3 times before 8pm by different staff that we needed to leave soon - no we will leave at 8:15. Even sent the glass collector over with a cleaning cloth.

At the beginning of the booking, we sat down fine told to remove Sash’s - fine with this. However another group came in wearing masks, so not sure why you would allow them to wear masks but the bride couldn’t wear her hat?!

When we sat down, went straight to the bar. The hostess/manageress came over around 10 minutes later to say they offered a table service, this should have been stated when sat us down in my opinion. Then when we did try and use the table service we tried to flag down the two hosts/managers and they blanked us. The young lady on the floor was much more attentive and welcoming.

For the charge of £15 per head if customers don’t show - I don’t think this is value for money. Felt rushed, unwelcome and the hosts definitely were the worst part of the night. I would also like to say the bar team were in good spirits. If it was based on the girl that did serve us and the bar team this would be 5 star.

I book a table for my friend and I to celebrate her special birthday, from the moment we arrived we were treated wonderfully. The staff are all so friendly, there is a great ambiance in the bar, beautifully decorated. A good choice of cocktails and if you go at the right time there is happy hour with a good selection of the cocktails reduced.

We made sure we went back again to say goodbye to the lovely bar staff before we ended our trip to Newcastle.
