Such a relief to have you open again and to experience the same very high standard of food and service.
It is a great phychological uplift to have the pleasure of being served good food so professionally.
The current menu offered a wonderfully fresh crab salad with dressed fennel and sensational brown crab mayonaise. And to be followed by a beautifully cooked piece of halibut with spiced mussel butter was simply heaven. If I catch the dreaded malaise tomorrow it will have been worth it.

Food very nice and well presented, but expensive for what it was. The 2 starters were monkfish cheeks with tartare sauce and a scotch egg, followed by fish cakes and chips and grouse and veg. To finish we shared a cheese board, this was all washed down with a house red. Total bill was £120.

Happy with distancing, sad that we have to do this. Service was very good and friendly. The food as always was extremely pleasant and satisfying. Wine list comprehensive without being confusing. Thank you staff, it can’t be easy doing your thing in these times.

We love this place it was our first time here when visiting Newcastle.
Very welcoming - relaxed atmosphere, spot on! - The chef really knows what it means to make real good food, and the service was excellent.
Portions perfect sizes all dishes very delicious , well presented and perfectly cooked and spiced.
Much better than some Michelin stars resturant in our point of view!

We booked months ago just to make sure we got in after our holidays prior lockdown and I sent an email asking coul we possibly be booked in too on their first Sunday of opening after lockdown and to my gratitude and suprise they both were on the same Sunday! I was so happy as the meal was just PERFECT! I had the fresh crab starter and my husband had the haggis both BEAUTIFUL! and plentiful then we both chose the Sunday Lunch- Roast Belly Pork DELICIOUS! Great Red House wine for my hubby too. Thank you so much for honouring our booking and just making our day. Can't wait to return and on an evening too. Thank you to the great Chefs & wonderful service : )

Very safe, well organised. Menu interestingly revamped and Sunday roasts retained. Modest increases in prices. A very positive experience. Good to be back!

Brilliant. If I could give bonus point for the food,service and price they would definitely get them. Pre-booked for the Friday 4 Sept. Never been before but very impressed. Fever Tree tonic would have made it perfect.

Small table which got all the smell of the smokers outside - my steak was very well done when medium/well requested - service was friendly and efficient - loos a bit of a trek downstairs through the bar
