Popped in for a quick snack before making our way home. I ordered 3 plates for £10 thinking they would be small plates they were not. Food ok, but good value.

As soon as we stepped foot in Newcastle we were greeted by the most arrogant taxi driver ever which was clear because we were Scottish! So this was our first stop and we were dreading issues with our Scottish notes etc.. We couldn't have been any more wrong, staff were amazing, very welcoming, I've been in the past and love... More

Hi! We're really glad you love the building, we're certainly very proud of it too.

This is a very historic building if a little run down, could do with a wash and brush up. We had breakfast there twice during our visit to Newcastle. Food typical Wetherspoons fodder. Custoner service very good. Will visit again.
