A great dining experience with fish cooked perfectly. For me the highlight was the liquorice ice cream with the sticky toffee pudding - and I am not a pudding person!
Good range of wines and excellent service.

    A very pleasant time was had by all. Two from our company had food allergies and were catered for without any problems.
    Staff were happy and polite. The food was very good , everyone enjoyed their meal.
    A few of us had the Sunday roast and we found that sharper knives would have been better.

    Cosy restaurant overlooking the river Tyne. Smart but not pretentious. Sunday Lunch was reasonably priced, Sticky Toffee pudding to die for! Thoroughly deserves bib gourmand. Staff polite and attentive. Meal for 4 with drinks came in at under £90. Recommend
