We visited this place on our snowy weekend getaway to Newcastle. We spotted this place and decided to try. Food was delicious (looks tiny but filling) and service was attentive. We will definitely returning soon.

We visited with a large group of family and friends for a birthday gathering. Waiter staff were helpful, friendly, patient and smiled throughout.

Everyone was served except one person whose meal was missed, forgotten and not served. A complaint was made and a manager dealt with the issue quickly but after everyone else had eaten their meal. The meal was eventually served free of charge.

Unfortunately one of the steaks was ordered medium well done. It came medium on top and cremated underneath so technically it was medium well done.... Cocktails were expensive and some were just mediocre.

They add a service charge of 10% for groups over six and we refused to pay it due to the problems we had.


Unfortunately a poor visit all round except the waiter staff who were excellent throughout.

Had a special lunch with my girls made even better by our service from Mollie! She noticed my daughters badge and got a candle for her cocktails which was a lovely touch. Very knowledgeable about the drinks to recommend smoking ones and the food tasted and looked spectacular. The restaurant vibe is relaxing but it was a bit cold, however our server moved some heaters for us
