Memorably good. Every dish was carefully, correctly prepared, presented and of a very high standard. Welcoming. Staff were knowledgeable about the menu, friendly and professionally attentive.

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 wanted to visit for some time but it closes on Tuesdays so we had missed out. The menu looked intriguing so we took the occasion of a visiting friend to try it. Excellent! we chose six sharing dishes between three and each was superb. Standards like smoked cod roe were superbly done and combinations like burrata and a sauce of nduja were highly appreciated. Outstanding was a charred oxtongue dish and a smoked haddock with rarebit. Moreish treacle bread meant that nothing remained on our plates. We tried all three desserts which maintained the high standards. Only issue was music a little too loud. Recommended - we will be back.
