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.

Both the service and the food were excellent, but I really do have to give a special credit to our waitress and host on the evening. She was incredibly helpful, suggesting wines we could try before ordering, which dishes paired well together, etc. The dining experience was perfect in light of everything also, felt safe and secure and like they really had done the best they could in light of everything.

Imaginative cuisine with a range of dishes from small to larger. We loved the various dishes including Jerusalem artichoke, figs and blue cheese, fish cakes, lemon sole with sweet corn and muscles. Good wine list, friendly informal service. Highly recommended. The seating is not the most comfortable but the food makes you forget that.

We were recommended Route and I will have no hesitation recommending Route too. The food is served tapas style which is great for sharing,and is both creative and delicious. It is difficult to highlight any particular dish as all the food we ordered was excellent,but the crispy prawns with Katsu curry is a must have for me.I understand that the menu changes regularly which is another plus as it gives customers the opportunity to sample the chefs skills.I must also mention the service we received was excellent, and look forward to another visit soon.
