Dinned as part of a birthday celebration with a large party. The food was great, everyone was served very quickly and the atmosphere was nice. Nothing negative to say but not a must place to dine.

Came here especially for the cocktails. They are great and they do 2 for 1 offers at certain times. Cannot review on the food as have never eaten here.

This modern high class looking bar/restaurant really did fool us on the outside, we got shown to our table, drinks ordered, came on time, my partner ordered a starter of the goats cheese with toasted bruschetta, I ordered pulled pork on toasted bruschetta, starters came fairly quickly, and this is where it all started... my partner looked at her starter...

Called in for drinks and it took so long to get served. Staff don't seem to know who is next and made no eye contact.

Food was a little to out there and exspensive. But waitress was fab she was in training but so helpful & sweet. Pornstar martinis well! My new found love. Between £7-9 a drink. Then went to the bar but was so tiny too many people already there. Lovely place would return.

We come back to this place regularly. The sphere, meals and service are of high standard. It's a bit further from the city center, but worth the effort,

Situated on Grey Street in Newcastle, The Living Room is a contemporary bar and restaurant with a laid-back vibe that keeps the locals coming back for more. During the day, it's the ideal place to do business over lunch or refuel after a day of shopping. In the evening, the modern eatery fills up with a lively post-work crowd catching up over cocktails. The fixed price menu is great value for money and there is plenty to choose from with all our dishes made with top quality seasonal ingredients. With dishes such as Thai fish cakes, Monkfish and Pork Blocks that not only taste great but look it too why not come and try?
