newcastle (upon tyne) restaurant recommendations
Six at the Baltic – pricey and sometimes hit and miss with the food (although I’ve always had great food there), but the view is amazing
Broad Chare – proper Northumberland food and a great atmosphere
Avoid Food Social at the Biscuit Factory – overpriced and pretentious for average food
Further afield, Bistrot En Glaze in Wylam is lovely (the lamb and merguez starter is unbelievable)
I’ll try to think of more – what sort of place were you thinking?Posted 4 years ago
Peace and Loaf has just opened in Jesmond.
Everyone who is going is saying it’s Michelin star quality food. 25 quid for three courses all night at the moment
I like cafe 21, or try the Broad Chare, a pub with tables upstairs, both owned by Terry laybourne, who had a star back in the 80s.
house of tides, a new restaurant is opening soon, ran by kenny Atkinson, should be good.
Jesmond dene house is very fancy, but very very good…
or, for something totally different, Lane 7. Bowling, Table tennis and incredible burgers and hot dogs 🙂Posted 4 years ago
2nd for the Broad Chare – been a few times and it’s just a great place to eat.
Stacks of small places in town of all sorts of styles – what are you after. We had a top meal at The Sausage Emporium under the railway arches last week but that’s only just opened, not sure if it has its booze license sorted yet. Cal’s Own in Heaton is out of the way but the best pizza I’ve had anywhere.
This blog’s worth keeping an eye on.Posted 4 years ago
cals own, could be great but the owner is a dick.
I once asked for a pizza, with extra pepperoni, he refused to do it, as it would spoil the type of cheese on the pizza,. haven’t been back since. he also charges a minimum 10 quid spend per person on big tables, including toddlers and babies.Posted 4 years ago
not really bothered what type of food but was ideally looking for something in the city centre itself, walking or short cab ride. stopping in the city centre so will be going for drinks afterwards. we went to a seafood place last year, big mussel i think its called. great food and although it looks a bit scruffy was really nice.Posted 4 years ago
cheers for the suggestions so far.

Would that be the pizza that the menu specifically explains is their signature dish and they don’t customise?
no, as this was when it first opened, so it didn’t say that. sorry, but it’s a pizza. If I want other stuff on my pizza, I should be able to have other stuff on my pizza. its pretentious shite like that which really annoys me, like french places in the 90s refusing to cook steaks well done. I wouldn’t eat a well done steak, but what right does a chef have to say you can’t have it like that.Posted 4 years ago

Erm… It’s him preparing the food, in his restaurant, reflecting on his abilities as a chef – I’d say he has every right.

Well the Broad Chare is a gently amble along the quayside though getting back up The Side can be a challenge afterwards.
If you fancied curry, Rasa on Queen Street is great.Posted 4 years agowinston_dogMember
Big Mussel was good when I was there a few years ago.
There was also an excellent Indian “Fusion” type place in Jesmond, excellent.
A great Italian just over the river, right on the quayside used to be the River Police HQ but I think that may of closed now.
There are some great places in the Toon.Posted 4 years agodr_deathMember
Some great recommendations on here so far, and I agree with almost all of them…
Broad Chare – agreed, great ‘pub grub’
Lane 7 – It only opened a 4 weeks ago so they are still finding their feet, but the burgers are amazeballs, and you can bowl afterwards and a great selection of beers.
Sachins – great Indian
Cafe 21 – my fave restaurant in Newcastle…. Love it, a lot
Caffe Vivo – Also owned by Terry Laybourne, also awesome
The Bridge Tavern – New place down on the quayside, not been yet but the food is meant to be ace…. Mostly coz they knicked the head chef from the Broad Chare…
If you are back up anytime next year from about february/march, there is a great new place going to be opening on Collingwood Street called two/fifths….. It will be ace (Disclaimer: I own a bit of it….)Posted 4 years ago
