Upstairs restaurant with views over the Tyne. Clean and attractive. Always been busy when we've gone which has been lunchtime. Menu varies but always has local fish . The Tempura Prawn starter is a favourite. Excellent service.

    We enjoyed the set evening menu, we made good choices and were happy to pay a little extra for tempura prawns.
    The portion sizes were just right and we felt everything was freshly cooked.

    I've been here twice in two weeks with friends that we're visiting the area. On both occasions we had an outstanding meal. The service is great and the view is amazing. Highly recommend.
