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.

As ever, Broad Chare provided what we needed for a pre concert visit. However, again, the wine was too warm which suggests that it is not carefully stored and so I wouldn’t buy an expensive bottle as it might not be in good condition.

Good food well served.
Noise from the bar tends to permeate upwards.

Birthday gathering with friends. Lovely relaxing atmosphere. Great drinks selection and the food was memorable. The crab on toast was delicious. Many of the party raved about the fish and chips, and the birthday boy said his steak was one of the best he has ever had.
Good service. The staff are really friendly. Thank you.

Service for a late Sunday lunch was poor as we waited 45mins for a main course and we ordered nothing that was complicated and the restaurant was not particularly busy. Food was OK but nothing exceptional

As usual Steve and Co were at their very best in looking after us and making sure that our evening was a pleasurable experience. One of my guests had certain food allergies and chef took great pains to ensure that everything was as it should be on all counts.
A big thank you once again to Broadchare.

We’ve been twice before, and recent visit every bit as good. Our guests from New Zealand were impressed by the ambiance, food and service. Well done!

A wonderful location, just back from the quayside. Sympathetically restored to be calm and inviting.
A good range of interesting options on the menu covering a range of prices. Our meals were both excellent.
Would return if in Newcastle again.

Not sure whether chef has changed but somehow we found the dishes a bit bland. Also hot food was just warm. New male waiter bit absent.

We wanted somewhere for Sunday lunch and found recommendations for Broad Chare on the internet. The service was great from the start. The roast lamb was enjoyed by my husband and the roast hake from the specials board was my choice. It was delicious. A thoroughly enjoyable experience and highly recommended.

Good pub food and service in a relaxed atmosphere with friendly and professional staff (as with all staff in 21 hospitality group). Specials each day and varied menu. Bar snacks available in the pub area downstairs from the restaurant.

Great food and services!! The only criticism is that we would like the wine cooler and the wine by the glass is never great, but it is a great place for a special occasion or a meal out with friends!

An old favourite of our’s, the Broad Chare rarely disappoints. The food is simple and unfussy but always superbly cooked, particularly the fish dishes, with well balanced flavours and combinations.

Great wine and beer list and some of the best bar snacks around too.

Good food as always, menu seems very stale however. Been a firm favourite of ours since you opened but I think the menu would benefit from even a slight refresh.

Existing FOH staff seem a downgrade

To be fair the only negative and this is no reflection on the establishment was the really noisy group of women who made it difficult to hold a conversation ( they needed to learn indoor voices ) everything else was spot on thank you
