Our meal was a graduation celebration. The waitress was fantastic and really accommodating (including bring out a cake, portioning it for us to take home etc). The restaurant was very quiet but it was a mid week lunchtime so probably to be expected. Overall, highly recommended with a particular shout out to our waitress (sorry, didn’t get her name)

I love Soho, it's my favourite place to treat myself to a solo lunch (their seafood pancake is 👌🏻) or a lovely dinner with friends or dates. Recently booked for my birthday lunch and they surprised me with a slice of chocolate cake 🖤 Great food, friendly and attentive staff, nice atmosphere, pretty decor.

There is literally no better place in Tyneside to eat... forget all other restaurants. First class service and food. Friendly staff make it a perfect visit every time. 5/5 to the kitchen too. The bar menu is fantastic as well.

About the restaurant
We’re big on warmth, low on fussiness: stripped wood floors, high bar stools, painted brickwork and comfy leather banquettes. Sup your pint beside our polished-oak bar or tuck yourself away in the Snug behind the frosted glass partition. You can hear yourself talk, concentrate on the crossword or nod off quietly in the corner.

To help keep everyone safe, our teams will continue to wear face masks and we'd love you to do the same when nentering and moving around the pub and dining room.

Thank you for your continued support and understanding and we look forward to seeing you.

We had an excellent lunch at this friendly, relaxed restaurant. I had the Cornish Pollock, Crab Bisque etc and it was excellent. My colleague had the Glazed Bacon chop etc which he really enjoyed. Washed down with a pint of Writers Block. An excellent restaurant I highly recommend.
