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.

To help keep everyone safe, our teams will continue to wear face masks and we'd love you to do the same when nentering and moving around the pub and dining room.

Thank you for your continued support and understanding and we look forward to seeing you.

Probably my favourite restaurant in Newcastle. Always high standards all round. Plus the outstanding Writer’s Block.

We never leave The Broad Chare feeling disappointed, and have been dining there since it opened. A small caveat, it would be nice to get back to the specials on the mirrors, and dishes of the day. Apart from that, excellent as always.

Fabulous night, although the menu is limited, the starters and bar snacks are really interesting and decent sized portions. The food is delicious, the atmosphere buzzing, a little bit noisy so it's quite hard to hear one another but a good evening.

A good and interesting selection of food though a small enough menu to ensure it was well prepared and no corners were cut. Service was generally excellent and we were actually moved to a better table when one became free without our asking.

Busy for a Monday night! Limited menu which appears not to have changed much in last 2 years but ample portions and interesting accompaniments. Would struggle to go regularly because of limited menu but the evening was enjoyable and friendly service in ambient surroundings.

Thoroughly enjoyed the meal service and surroundings.
I was most concerned however to be next to a table where one lady coughed incessantly and it was a chesty deep cough. In current climate I felt uncomfortable to be sat so close
No ones fault in the restaurant and I will return

Sunday roast is always superb. The only tiny niggle is no cauliflower cheese on the menu. This would make it the perfect roast in my humble opinion!
Staff great.
Service great.

Absolutely loved the Broad Chare. Service was fantastic. I had the duck leg which was beautiful, but the star of the show was the ribeye with bone marrow butter. Was so delicious I had to ask the chef how it was done! Will be back soon.

First visit for us to this restaurant. Food was excellent and service was good. Staff are friendly and accommodating. We actually paid more for drinks than for the food so we do think 2 glasses of wine costing £21 was a bit much. Beer prices were normal prices.
