We were in the Banqueting Hall for Burns Night Dinner. Food and atmosphere plus a different tot of whisky with each course was excellent. The story teller was very entertaining with poetry from Burns and tales from Scottish myths and legends. Great night.

Amazing restaurant. Quality of Sunday lunch menu is fantastic and on another occasion they served me the best scallops I have ever tasted, as a starter, followed by superb crispy belly pork. Sadly it's in the centre of Newcastle which makes for difficult parking.

Ale tasting evening followed by a 3 course dinner. Received as a Christmas gift. Lashings of beer, great tasting food, met lovely people in fabulous surroundings. Can't wait to go again.

Went there yesterday with friends, couldn't fault it. Lovely staff, very helpful, knowledgeable and efficient. The food was top notch, my Northumbrian beef was melt in the mouth. A thoroughly enjoyable evening, highly recommended.

Nice food if small portions. But beware if the waiter asks you if you want water for the table. Even though myself and others in my party asked for tap water they brought out fancy bottles then tried to charge £3.50.per bottle. This was questioned by a member of my party and we were reimbursed. A very sly and duplicitous move. Also they rush you off the table as soon as you have eaten. Stuck a service charge of £57 which reluctly refunded when challenged. for our table even tho they wouldn't bring you drinks to the table.For £29 pound per head it's a bit much. Won't be returning.
