Lovely little restaurant, great atmosphere, great wine list and food was simple and extremely tasty. Desserts were the highlight. Looking forward to returning.

A stylish yet casual Newcastle bistro, Route serves colourful seasonal dishes in the city centre. An interior of rustic white walls, pot plants and soft lighting make this a relaxing spot to sample the bi-weekly updating menus, with al fresco seating out the front to enjoy any passing sunshine.

Diners are offered only the freshest seasonal flavours on the Route menu, complemented by a diverse wine list. Small plate dishes are a speciality, starting off with fresh seafood like Lindisfarne oysters, and a selection of cow and goat cheeses. Enjoy modern takes on home-style favourites, like the smoked paprika, chorizo and chickpea stew, or tuck into hearty favourites like the 40-day aged steak au poivre.

A selection of bold, expertly crafted sides are served at Route in Newcastle, like the rustic black treacle bread, and pink fir apple potatoes. Sunday lunches offer slow-cooked meats from across the UK, with a wine list featuring vintages from England and around the world.

Showcasing beautiful bistro dishes with a focus on seasonal British flavours, Route is moments from Newcastle Castle, and 6 minutes' walk from Newcastle Central Rail Station.

    Honestly, couldn’t fault the good at all but what seems to be every good independent restaurant in Newcastle the service is so bad. 1 young girl and 2 tables, she couldn’t handle it. I’d love to know why anyone would think it’s acceptablr to open a £48 bottle of wine away from the table and bring it over, she offered us to taste it which we did she then just plonked it down. In a time where restaurants are closing down all around us it’s these tiny details that need to be perfect. We would’ve had another bottle but we’re never asked. So we left paying a £130 bill for 2 with satisfied stomachs and taste buds but with big negatives to discuss. I wouldn’t have written a review but I got an email prompting me to. Adam.

    Brilliant meal at route. Not even a slight dip in standards across all the dishes we had (and we had quite a few!). Service was relaxed, knowledgable amd friendly.

    I hope this place makes it, as it fully deserves success and accolades. I’ll definitely be back. A lot.
