We didn’t eat at WC. But no option to bypass. Service was marvellous and all spacing was adhered to.

We only had drinks great ambience small and intimate. Great social distancing for a very small bar with divides between each table. We had a lovely bottle of wine and cocktails were amazing. Bar staff very friendly and give a shout out to Manuel and Holly. We will be back.

Group of 6 for drinks only. Staff were excellent. Beautiful bar and feel, however a strong smell of sewage. Would not want to dine here as would be put off by the smell

Beautiful place to have a drink and staff really friendly but this "COVID" getting the drinks menu up on your phone using the QR code is ridiculous! It's SLOW, a fiddle and annoying. My advice would be to get some menus stuck up on the dividers or chalk the menu on to a big notice board or wipe a laminated menu between visits!

The steps leading to the bar were very grubby and unkempt. The inside was beautiful but the ladies toilets were a mess with no hand towels left and over flowing bins.
I found it quite inappropriate to see some members of staff eating behind the bar too.
Drinks were lovely and arrived swiftly though .

Not an eating establishment but a really good bar in an old WC in the Bigg Market. We arrived just as they were opening so it was quiet but soon filled up. Staff were fantastic, the barman made excellent cocktails, quietly and professionally, really , really impressive.

First visit to what used to be a gents public WC in Bigg Market newcastle.

Booked online and had a 1.5 hour timeslot, which was enough time for us to have 2 drinks each. The drinks were very good and decent value.

The bar itself is very nice, and with perspex screens between seats, it helps keep the adjacent noise levels down.

Our waitress was very fun and friendly.

Would definitely visit again.

Its a really nice place to chill and relax. Great staff who are eager to please. I gave the food rating a 1 star... not a reflection on them, just they don't serve food. Love the old black and white photos of Newcastle adorning the walls throughout, back in the day of horse drawn carriages and trams.
Give it a try
