This is a great bar/restaurant offering wonderful food with great service.The afternoon special is any choice of 3 tapas and a bottle of wine for £20. The tapas menu has great choices,but the hake,crab pate and the garlic prawns are particularly nice.

Had food here a few times! Lovely. Staff are really friendly and helpful. Seen live music there and always a good atmosphere. It’s obviously a busy little place but that’s because it’s good at what they do!

We love this place and go all of the time. Cliff is a great guy like all the staff are and make you feel very welcome. The food is phenomenal, along with the atmosphere and the view of the Tyne.

What a great place, when we arrived it was rammed but the staff explained they could sit us shortly and were more than accommodating. The food was served promptly and was delicious, the deserts were exceptional. As a family we can’t recommend this place enough,...More

They are child friendly and staff are great with the kids. However, I dont think they do a kids menu (possibly do a kids sunday roast) although if your going for tapas its not a big deal as your sharing dishes anyways. :)
