Been here before and it was good. Today was absolutely stunning and off the scale. Janis had the Houmous Plate with the beetroot and blood orange salad. Delicious. I had the slow cooked Harissa lamb ciabatta with tzatzki and the beetroot salad as well. Wow!
If you eat in one place in Newcastle, make it here, you will not be disappointed. Knowledgeable, helpful and friendly staff on hand to help. Thank you, it made our day.

The Factory Kitchen used to be quite crowded - it retains its popularity but they have expanded the floor area many times over. It serves interesting and delicious savoury and sweet foods, very well prepared; the tables are mostly near upper floor windows, which gives great views over the city.
So: lovely food in a lovely environment.
The art gallery adjoining (Biscuit Factory) is thrilling and stimulating. All in all, the two complement each other

The Biscuit Factory is a great location whether you like the art or not . It's always nice to find a cafe attached as a good excuse for a coffee and snack I liked the clean simple decor and layout of the space . I had a delicious cake but my flat white was just average . In a world where latte art is almost the norm and the sign of a trained barista - the indistinct froth on my flat white was disappointing.
With a crank up on the coffee front , this place would be so much better and attract more caffeine addicts !

I recently visited The Factory Kitchen for yet again another superb meal. I attended the Spanish Supper Club which did not disappoint. The food was fantastic I had the meat platter to start with followed by the belly pork and finished off with Santiago Tart with ice cream. There is a French night coming up next month I cannot wait to book up for this.

Stumbled upon The Factory Kitchen by accident (more or less). Nice place to have a little lunch at a reasonable rate, food of high quality served by friendly staff.
