Newcastle is the fun city of the north so we thought that finding a tranquil and good restaurant suitable to entertain our friends on a visit from Edinburgh would be a difficult task. Not so, the Bridge Restaurant at the Vermont Hotel ticked every box....More

We had a marvellous meal, perfectly cooked and attractively presented and most importantly, it was piping hot. Superb ! The Staff were very welcoming and did an excellent job. Everything about it was wonderful.

We went here on a Sunday evening for dinner as we had the Tastecard with 2 for 1 on all courses. While the service was impeccable the food sadly wasn't. The starters weren't special at all, some sort of vegetable panna cota that had nice...More

Me and my boyfriend recently came here for a relaxing dinner and we certainly got that. The service, the food. Everything about the place is just excellent. It's absolutely great value too. It was £69 per couple for any starter, any main and any dessert...More

Our visit got off to an odd, surprising start with no menus available in the restaurant "until they had got some back". Even then the delay from receiving menus to actually taking our order was over 1 hour after the time the table was booked...More

We went for afternoon tea which didn't disappoint. There's tons of good food and the cocktails are amazing but very strong. Service is excellent too

  • This restaurant is at The Vermont Hotel
���Tyne and dine��� at Newcastle���s Bridge Restaurant, with its spectacular views over the River Tyne and the soaring arc of the Tyne Bridge. The restaurant is in the Vermont Hotel, a Manhattan-style 1930s tower right next to the remains of the city���s medieval castle and close to the revitalised Quayside area. Start with marinated herring with crisp pancetta and honey-mustard vinaigrette or the more substantial confit duck and red onion tart tatin. Then dig in to baked lamp rump with minted lentils and garlic potatoes, or pan-seared wild salmon, braised spring cabbage and clam casserole.You may think you���ll be able to resist the milk chocolate cr��me br��l��e with Bailey���s ice-cream, but that���s only because you���ll fall for the steamed lemon sponge with vanilla cr��me fra��che instead.
