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.

The Oxtail special and the bar snacks keep bringing me back. So many great things on the menu but you only get braised oxtail on Tuesdays.

Staff at the Broad Chare are always spot on. Service is always perfect. This place is still on of my favourite restaurants in Newcastle!!!

On our periodic visits from Switzerland, eating out in Newcastle always means The Broad Chare. It's nice to have a place you know you can trust. Great food and a great ambience.

Really amazing food and a lovely ambiance.

I booked the broad chare following a number of positive reviews from friends. I booked for a group of 5 of my family and had a lovely table upstairs (just the right amount of tables for a perfect atmosphere). We don't all get together that often so it was nice to have a relaxed ambiance so we could have a good catch up.

We started with a selection of bar snacks which were unbelievable!! My favourite was the monkfish cheek which was superb. These were really good value for money too - I think £3.95 a plate?

For mains two had the roast beef dinner which was cooked to perfection. Two had mussels which were cooked in a sensational broth with wheat beer and leek (I think!?). And the other had roast lamb which was also cooked to perfection.

All in all a fabulous afternoon from the food to the lovely waiter we had - my only quibble was that the specials which looked sensational were a little overpriced however I suppose you pay more value for the best quality dishes anyway!

Very happy customers :)

Food, staff and atmosphere were great, apart from a couple of noisy tables close to us. At times we could barely hear each other because of very loud and raucous conversation. Nevertheless it would not deter us from returning.

When I heard my friends wanted to meet up for Sunday lunch, there was only one venue where we could possibly meet and enjoy not only good company, good food and excellent service, it had to be Broad Chare. None of us was disappointed. The Sunday roasts was as delicious as ever. Always a treat to eat at Broad Chare. You are guaranteed to receive a warm welcome and be well looked after. Thank you Broad Chare.

Haven’t been for a while and it was brilliant . The food is amazing and the staff are friendly and helpful . We had Sunday lunch, which as I’ve said was amazing, good size portions very tasty , the rubarb, merengue and vanilla cream desert was one of the best things I’ve had. Reasonable price considering it included the service charge

This was the best meal we have enjoyed for some time. The choices were excellent: so good that it was difficult to choose, so we will go back soon. The only slight down was that the red wine was too warm. The staff member offered a replacement but we chose to use an ice bucket to cool it a bit. The way they coped with this was courteous and efficient.

Although the three of us getting together on Monday evening was not a particularly special occasion in itself, the whole experience of dining at Broad Chare certainly is. I love the fact that it is off the beaten track but is nonetheless well known and well loved. I cannot recall any occasion when I have had a poor eating/service experience at Broad Chare. Long may you continue to meet and exceed your own very high standards. Thank you Broad Chare visiting with you is always a pleasure never a chore!
