What a fabulous meal and experience we had at The Broadchare. We had a crab starter and an oyster starter which me and my wife shared . It was fresh and tasted superb. The main meal was a beef and a lamb Sunday Lunch and the size of the Yorkshire puddings was exceptional. Sav Blanc New Zealand wine was first class n the service was excellent as always. All in all a great meal out.

We had a fantastic anniversary meal at the Broad Chare, food absolutely fantastic. The haggis on toast was out of this world. Great atmosphere and friendly service. Highly recommend can’t wait to go back after lockdown. It was unfortunate that the card reader was not working and had to go out to get cash.

Relaxed lunchtime treat. Crab salad and haddock fish cakes were light and delicious. My haggis and liver were not overpowering and cooked to perfection. Goose IPA and Malbec recommended. Unobtrusive service with good knowledge of the menu. Very Covid compliant and felt safe and relaxed. Not cheap but good value with decent portion sizes.

First we have visited Broad Chare and we will be back. The food and service were excellent. Only critique I'd have was the haggis was over powered by the duck egg and hp gravy. Unusual as haggis is a strong flavour. Everything else was very well done.

Gorgeous, gorgeous, gorgeous, teeny bit pricey which would stop me going more regularly but for special occasions, but you know it WAS worth it. Staff lovely, funny,helpful and gave us exactly the right amount of attention. Loved it.

Great choice for a traditional Sunday roast dinner. Enjoyed the starters - crackling, monk fish and pigs’ ears. The roast lamb, pork and beef was good. Too full for pudding. Will come back here next time we are in Newcastle.

As usual, we had a great night at Broad Chare. The food was excellent, especially the starters which is often not the case at other venues.
The atmosphere was very relaxed with just the right number of diners whose tables were well spaced out. No problem social distancing.

Lovely evening meal. Staff were lovely and the environment felt very safe in these strange times!
Monkfish cheeks were delicious, mushrooms on toast and rump burger were nice. Halibut dish was lovely but overpriced in my opinion and although the halibut was well cooked, the roast cauliflower was the star on the plate.
Would definitely return.

This was a relaxed Sunday lunch which lived up to expectations. The staff have managed to organise safety without it being lax or oppressive. Service is friendly and efficient and the food is very good.

The best Sunday roast in the north east. Proper pub grub done well. We travel 23 miles to eat here regularly, and we are never disappointed. Fave dishes are cauli fritters with curry mayo. Pigs ears. Potted shrimp. In fact all of it. The hard part is deciding what to have, the choice is so good! Desserts are exceptional too.

We managed to get in last minute here, I'm guessing we were lucky as it was pretty busy (but safe). The service and food were spot on, lovely place to eat.

Delicious food, really enjoy seeing more traditional ingredients on the menu. Two of us shared four small plates as a main (The haggis was particularly good) after having oysters and monkfish cheeks to start.

Wednesday afternoon visit so it certainly wasn't busy. I had the plaice fillets which were delicious and followed that with the custard pot with blackberries. I could have eaten the pudding all day - fab! On the whole my husband enjoyed his meal but the apple sorbet was very sharp.
Could have done with some different background music - there is only so much of The Beatles I can listen to. I know its a pub/restaurant but I don't drink alcohol ,and perhaps there is not much call for non alcoholic drinks, I would have liked a better choice - for example a non alcoholic gin would have been great.
After all that complaining - I have to say we really enjoyed our meal and will be back.
