Great Beer
We’re big on warmth, low on fussiness: stripped wood floors, high bar stools, painted brickwork and comfy leather banquettes. Sup your pint beside our polished-oak bar or tuck yourself away in the Snug behind the frosted glass partition. You can hear yourself talk, concentrate on the crossword or nod off quietly in the corner.
Upstairs in the Dining Room, it’s all reassuringly simple with solid wood tables, sturdy schoolroom chairs and shiny brass coat-hooks.

Pleasant atmosphere and reasonable food.
However my potatoes didn’t come with my main course and I had to ask for them. I’d started eating before they arrived as the delay meant the fish would’ve been cold had I waited.

Great food, Sunday lunch was very good, not a lot of veg but the overall meal was good. Service a bit slow, we waited 45 minutes for our meal. Restaurant was very noisy, there was a large group of people at one end of the room who were noisy.

A catch up in Newcastle with old friends. The food and the service was very good - positive feedback from everyone in the party. Had the Sat special - chicken and leek pie which was tremendous.

Good quality food with excellent friendly service. We called as we were running late and our table was held for us.

The food was lovely and the service even better. The chefs were kind enough to change a main for me a little bit so that it didn't contain meat which was fantastic. The servers were really friendly and really understood their menu.
We went with our parents to celebrate getting married and it was the perfect setting, we will definitely all be going again.
Also the Malbec is spot on.

All our visits here have been successful ever since opening. Food and service is always good and reliable and the atmosphere good even though this time it was a not very busy lunchtime. This contradicted your website the night before when I was booking and it said there were so few tables available I had 4 minutes in which to make a booking. The only change I would like to see at Broad Chare is the introduction of a fixed price lunch menu as at Cafe 21 and other good restaurants. this would offer a much better value alternative.

First time at the Broad Chare, it will not be the last time. The staff were polite and helpful, table was available earlier than booked, food was served hot and everything tasted fantastic. Will be letting family and friends know about this place.

Great steaks and seafood but the chunky chips were bought in rather than fresh/home made which is pretty disappointing. At this price point I don't expect to be eating frozen chips.

Had a lovely evening at the Broad Chare. Food was flavour some, arrived quickly and presented well. The service was great really attentive but not in your face! The atmosphere was busy and happy. It’s a comfortable pub/restaurant. Couldn’t fault anything! Would highly recommend

Great British food in a gastro pub with great atmosphere - really good friendly service, interesting menu and food was just fantastic. Proper pub downstairs too for a drink before or after!
The best of Newcastle - and the best of British!

Nice setting with a good selection of beers. Starter, Venison pate, was excellent, main course a little disappointing as I thought the HP sauce was a little sharp and overpowered the other flavours on the plate. Pleasant staff and reasonable service at a busy lunchtime.

Excellent food and service as always. Only slight downside was our table in the middle of floor with lots of background noise from other tables, passing diners and waiters. Would have preferred a more secluded table as sometimes difficult to hear conversation

I love going to Broad Chare. The atmosphere is great, the good is generally excellent quality and the the staff friendly and helpful. Sometimes the food is a bit too salty for my taste, but presentation and cooking are excellent. On this occasion I knocked over a half drunk glass of gin and tonic, which was replaced with a new one, without asking. Really appreciated that!

Great food in a great location. Quirky and hip !
Staff good although a few looked miserable
Lady that served us was excellent and very knowledgable about dishes
Snacks all good
Mains all good
Dessert bit disappointing apple strudel needed more cooking and sticky date pudding sauce was burnt which made everything taste burnt
But other than that would defiantly return and recommend
