The Galley
Newcastle Upon Tyne | Takeaway Food
The Galley
4
One of the nicest takeaways in Newcastle. Brightly lit, and always clean and tidy, The Galley offers a wide range of takeaway food. The menu includes burgers, the nicest donner kebabs I've ever tasted, pizzas, chips and other fast food items. The food isn't the cheapest in Newcastle, but you can tell that you're paying for much better quality - the (large) pizza slice and chips with suace is £5 and absolutely gorgeous. The staff are very polite and efficient, and the queue goes down extremely quickly. It's also opposite a cashpoint, so there's no excuse not to visit! Definitely woth it.

Pitcher & Piano
4
The Pitcher and Piano is in an amazing location, on the Quayside area of Newcsatle and just a stone's throw away from the River Tyne. The glass front of the bar enables it's patrons to view the river and the bridges as they eat and drink, which lends a fantastically relaxed atmosphere to the bar. The drinks are expensive, no doubt about that, but we were lucky enough to have vouchers for free Budweiser, which saved us a small fortune. Full of young trendies, mature professionals and students alike, The Pitcher and Piano is a lovely place to sit and watch the world go by.

Revolution Bar Newcastle Upon Tyne
Newcastle Upon Tyne | Night Clubs
Revolution Bar

Revolution has got to be one of the most impressive bars in Newcastle - an old bank, the vaulted ceilings and sheer beauty of the place is amazing. As a vodka lover, I adore the range of my favourite tipple in here, especially cherry colas and the minty, creamy cocktails - sorry, can't remember their name! The food served in Revolution also looks lovely, with special offers constantly available. Despite the bar having quite a few areas to sit down, at weekends the bar becomes packed full of people standing up, and is not for the claustrophobic among us. The music is funky, happy house, and the clientle is a mix of young trendies, students and professionals.

Perdu

Perdu deserves a mention for its outdoor area alone - a huge expanse of 'astro turf', it is totally unique and makes smokers feel most welcome! The bar itself is very big, with lovely toilets and an upstairs area. The drinks are as expected - rather expensive - but the atmosphere and decor can almost justify spending over £3 for a pint of lager! It gets very busy at weekends with large queues, and does sometimes appear to be full of wag wannabes, but if you can get over this, then sit back, relax and listen to the funky tunes! A very impressive venue, it's really worth a visit if you can get to the front of the queue.

The Lodge is situated right in the centre of Newcastle, not far from Central Station and the main shopping areas. An Ultimate Leisure bar, it offers reasonably priced food and drink, in a lovely setting. The building itself is old and used to be a bank, which explains it's vaulted ceilings and impressive exterior. Inside, the bar is nicely decorated and has the unique addition of individual televisions on the tables up the steps, to the left of the bar. The meals are nice, with buy one get one free offers on all main meals. Kids can also eat free, making it a very reasonably priced venue for food. I hold a Magnet loyalty card, which I can use in all Ultimate Leisure venues, and this means that I can buy selected bottles and pints for £1.75, all day every day. The Lodge can get very busy at weekends and bank holidays and is well worth a visit on your way round Newcastle.

The Union Rooms

I love The Union Rooms! The building itself is absolutely beautiful and very grand, with a lovely wide staircase sweeping into the reception and up to the second floor. It's totally unique, with a range of rooms with ample seating and even an old library room, complete with old books! The food and drinks are very reasonably priced, starting from £1.70 for a spirit & mixer, with numerous food offers too. In the summer in the main bar area, the huge windows are often opened, which lets a lovely breeze enter the bar and gives you a lovely view of Newcastle's Central Station. Being so close to the station, it's an ideal pub to visit if you're waiting for a train or have just arrived in the city.

The Quayside - Jd Wetherspoon
Newcastle Upon Tyne | Pub Restaurants
Fab location and great price
4
The Lloyds Quayside bar is one of my favourite places to visit in Newcastle. The bar is large, with a huge outdoor courtyard area containg tables, and another outdoor seating area along the river. There's ample seating in the bar itself, which is over 2 floors and also has a dance floor upstairs. Being part of the Wetherspoons & Lloyds chain, the prices for both food and drinks in this establishment are very reasonable, with the price of a spirit & mixer starting at £1.70. There are regular offers on, including Curry Clubs and the Monday Club, where many drinks are very cheaply priced. The building itself is very old and adds a fantastic atmosphere to the place.

A Lovely Local Pub
4
Ye Olde Cross Inn (or The Cross as it's known to locals) is a wonderfully traditional local pub, situated in the beautiful old village of Ryton, in the Tyne Valley. Standing next to an ancient village green and surrounded by beautiful houses, The Cross is named after the village church that stands a short distance away. The Cross is always busy on a weekend and most weekday evenings, mainly consisting of regualrs. There's regular live music and a walled beer garden with heat lamps. Upstairs, there's an area for the use of diners and special nights (such as Psychic Nights) that the landlord often offers his customers. The pub is very cosy and traditionally decorated, especially in the beautiful upstairs room. The Cross also offers a range of real ales, as well as the usual standard and premium cask lagers, beers and ciders. Special offers on house double spirits are always in place and there's also a very wide range of branded spirits to choose from. Drinks are not expensive and a small selection of meals are also available, again at a decent price.

A la Carte in Presentation and Taste - Delicious!

Jordan's is situated just off the main road through Ryton, heading towards Ryton Village itself. A very small and intimate venue, I was lucky enough to be treated to a meal here last Valentine's Day. Even getitng to the restaurant was a delight, as we walked through Old Ryton Village itself. On arrival, it was immediately apparent that the staff were both highly trained and very polite, as they took our coats and ushered us to our table. The special menu for the night was amazing, with a small but delicious-looking range of courses. My partner and I both chose to start with the soup, which was served with a crusty roll and was absolutely gorgeous. After our forst course, we were served a small shooter glass containg gazpacho, whoch was a lovely addition. For main course, I had a wonderful chicken dish, served with sliced potatoes and veg. My partner chose the lamb and both of our dishes were exquisitely presented. The main courses were beautiful and whilst waiting for out dessert, we were again treated to a small shooter glass - this time filled with sorbet. Mmmm! The last course was the best - i had the nicest chocolate dessert that I've ever tasted, whilst my partner chose cheese and biscuits. Every course at Jordan's was a true delight and to top of our evening, as we left the restaurant, each lady was given a single red rose and small bag of chocolates. Amazing! It may be pricey, but at Jordan's of Ryton, you certainly get what you apy for.

Lovely food and a great atmosphere

El Castano, situated on Osborne Road in Jesmond, is a lovely little restaurant. The staff are friendly and the food is gorgeous, with a wide range of traditional Spanish dishes on offer. The bar also stocks a wide range of draught and bottled alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages. The atmosphere in the establishment is relaxed and intimate, with candles and fab decor. I had no problems in booking a table for a Saturday night and the food was very reasonably priced. We ate chicken cooked in white wine and garlic, chorizo, meatballs, potatoes cooked with onions and peppers, garlic mushrooms and garlic bread. The food was superb and the bottle of Bulmers that wed rank were also lovely! I'll definitely go back to El Castano.
