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.

    We had a super meal. Great cooking, exciting dishes. The neck of lamb stood out for me. Area for improvement - the welcome we got was less impressive than the food, not unpleasant but we were met with an awkward silence (almost ignored) while he looked for our reservation. It would not take much to check the names of guests with reservations a short time before opening (we arrived 15 mins after opening) and therefore people would be made more welcome. To return to the more positive - great food, very modern style of cooking, very nice interior to the restaurant. Will definitely return when we next visit family in Newcastle. A great addition to the Newcastle dining scene.

    Love the format, order lots of different dishes and enjoy many taste sensations, especially when done so well!
    Fave dishes were the Mutton neck broth and the charred squash with ox tongue and parmesan - superb!
    now wishing i had tried the sprout fritters! maybe next time!
    Interesting wine list too,
    nice relaxed service

    Fabulous food (the oysters were outstanding) and attentive staff. We'll be back

    Had Sunday lunch and it was one of the best I’ve had. The food was cooked to perfection but most of all it tasted like it was quality produce used. The Yorkshire puddings were out of this world and meat was quality. The deserts were not the predictable ones that you always get. We all chose the rice pudding which was beautiful but the other two deserts sounded lovely too so we’ll need to return to sample those. The staff were really nice - both friendly and professional. The restaurant had a nice vibe about it. You may pay a couple more pounds than some other places but for the quality it is a no brainer. Can’t wsit to return. Definitely highly recommend.

    We had a wonderful time at Route for our anniversary. The food and the concept are both superb, a mixture of smaller dishes and larger dishes meant that we had the opportunity to try different things without overcommitting to them. The atmosphere was relaxed and really helped contribute to the overall positive experience. The bill was very reasonable too. All in all, we highly recommend Route for people looking for great food, lovely atmosphere without the pretentiousness
