Nice place to take your dog for a drink. It does dog meals a bit on the expensive side at £5 a pop. The human food was plentiful but we found it a bit on the greasy/ oily side so don't think we would eat hear again. Staff were great

Don't really get it. I don't mind dogs but you couldn't move for them in this place, just roaming round begging for food. There's even pictures of dogs on the food menu. Odd. Had we seen a Jack Russell cock his leg against a seat before we'd ordered food we'd have left. We also noticed staff petting dogs and then... More

The Brandling Villa is everything I would want in a pub in terms of a variety of real ales and some big sloppy burgers on the menu. Staff are good, and some quirky features around such as board games and dog bowls. But some how nothing works too well, perhaps its all a bit too manufactured rather than coming from... More

Apart from not being able to get parked, the place was brilliant, it's dog friendly, the drinks were good and the burgers was one of the best I've had. Will definitely return !!

Certainly didn't expect a pub to have such great food. Fantastic and quirky menu choices, burgers all handmade and delicious. The staff were friendly and helpful. Nice atmosphere in the pub, band was on and they were very good. Lovely night would highly recommend.

We had the plan for a while to come here for the first Studio Ghibli themed film night followed by the old school gaming. I am gutted to say it was a complete disaster, which is super a shame because we were so excited to have a place near by with such quirky events! The film was supposed to start... More

We visited The Brandling Villa after a sunny walk in Jesmond Dene with our pooch. We arrived just after midday on a Sunday expecting it to be busy. Our dog was well looked after with a bowl of water and we even treated him to a doggy Sunday dinner. This portion was enormous for our small dog and we ended... More

Went here when we were visiting family in Newcastle. The Brandling Villa is in south Gosforth. We all ordered burgers and weren't disappointed. Think mine was called a beef chegwin. (They all have funny names!) The food came quickly too, only a short wait for our tums! It was all delicious. All the members of our party had burgers which... More

Dogs had a chicken dinner from the dog menu Really nice staff too the tables are all named after dogs.. Unfortunately they do let kids in too... More
