The Broad Chare
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.
Fabulous neal and excellent service is this traditional restaurant. The menu is very british but cooked and presented to a high standard.
Everything was good except fishcakes were so hot I burnt my mouth. But we will be back I am sure but will test food first!
Great food, location and venue to catch up with an old friend
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
Very relaxing Sunday lunch, great food and fantastic service.
As always, first class food and service for Sunday lunch. Well priced and is the place to beat in Newcastle
Absolutely loved it! 10 out of 10! A +++++++++++++++++++++++
Lovely meal - great atmosphere and friendly staff
Excellent food and service in lovely surroundings
Fantastic food, great location.
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!
Fantastic food- couldn't recommend it highly enough
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.
As always the Broad Chare was excellent. Beer, service, food and ambience were of very high quality.
Great food in lovely surroundings, a proper pub with good beer.
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!
Fantastic as always. We have eaten in restaurant many times and it is always excellent, great quality ingredients, perfectly cooked, presented and served. Sunday lunch for four this visit and drinks before - thoroughly enjoyed by all of us. Thank you to everyone at the Broad Chare!
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.
Such a great place. Hadn't been for a couple of years. Why not?? Need to sort that out and make regular visits. Food delicious, classy and unpretentious atmosphere, staff are amazing.
This is the third visit and we have always had lovely food and service will be back soon
Tremendous value for the money. A very professional attitude by the staff and made to feel very welcome.
Nothing too fancy but as always, lovely food & well kept beers
The Broad Chare is excellent value considering the quality of the food. Perfect, as always.
Top quality food at affordable prices. We had the braised oxtail and it was absolutely superb.
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
Fabulous food , had the 1kg rump steak and no complaints.... would definitely recommend. Starters were also tasty and couldn’t fault the service off the friendly staff, will certainly return- thank you
Have been here more than once and would happily go again. Good food at reasonable prices. The staff are always really helpful and friendly and definitely add to the vibe and experience. Would definitely recommend.
I’ve been eating here with friends & clients since it opened, exceptional food & exceptional service prevails every time .
Really enjoyed their Sunday lunch...and very close to quayside
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
Amazing service, gorgeous pint of Landlord and both outshone by the food!
Fantastic blend of good food and drinks. Gastro pub. Main menu was basic but the specials board made it an excellent menu
As usual service and food were excellent, my only problem was noise level
