Fantastic Sunday lunch, the gravy was superb. I have eaten many many Sunday lunches in the north east and this was lovely! Quirky interior and casual vibe. Will definitely be going back

Awarded a Michelin Bib Gourmand in the 2019 Guide, 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.

    Route is a lovely little restaurant, we had a ‘Sunday lunch’ but it was so much more than that. The food was great, tasted beautiful and me and my wife had a fantastic time.
    For the quality of the food I don’t think it was expensive at all. I would much rather pay for quality food than quantity of poor food, Route serve quality food with good portion sizes at a decent price.

    Best Sunday dinner in Newcastle. Great atmosphere, feels like you coul be in any trendy little bar restaurant in Europe with great service. Definitely something a little different that the quayside was missing. It’s all about the atmosphere and feel of the place.

    Imaginative English tapas, well run and presented. Enjoyable. Deceptively casual. A broad wine list.

    I’ve been twice in two weeks as I loved the food, vibe, staff... well everything. Would recommend the lamb on the evening menu and it was hands down the best beef Sunday roast I’ve had. Oysters were super fresh too! It’s not stuffy, has a really cool friendly atmosphere, love love love

    Great food - loved the cod’s roe. Service was a bit off-hand and wine explanation (especially for the dessert wines) was poor. Seating was tricky / I was back-to-the-aisle, and putting a high chair the other side wasn’t clever. I had to get up twice to allow staff/another guest to get through. I have a feeling these are rough edges which may improve and will go back in a few months to see where they’ve got to
