We took an elderly relative here for lunch at her suggestion whilst visiting Newcastle and it was a very pleasant experience. An excellent lunch in the café was followed by a walk around the various exhibits. Highly recommended!

Went with my family and had a most amazingly good meal here. I'm sorry to say I have forgotten what we had. I should have written this review a year ago. What I can say is try it you won't be disappointed.

We'd never been to the gallery before but popped in while exploring Newcastle's Great Exhibition. There is a great range of art available for all tastes and price ranges!

Stopped off here on the Hop on Hop Off bus. Glad I did, really enjoyed it. Some interesting art. Wish I could have spent more time. Friendly staff and the café/restaurant looked worth a visit.

I could spend hours in here just browsing and admiring the paintings, sculptures, crafts, etc. Great for buying a special gift and the cafe is fab. Lots of veggie and vegan alternatives and a great view.
