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.
Upstairs in the Dining Room, it’s all reassuringly simple with solid wood tables, sturdy schoolroom chairs and shiny brass coat-hooks.

Cannot fault this place. Delicious food from starters to dessert. Great service. Efficient yet relaxed. Rare lunch date with the hubby....perfect! Only wish we got more chance to visit the Broad Chare.

Lunchtime meal. Poor fish and chips for price, very little fish but plenty of batter. Chocolate mousse very bland. Not as good as last visit. Good pint of speckled hen. Would not rush back or recommend to others.

First time we'd been here but we'll definitely be back! Beautiful place, clean and nicely set out. Food is amazing and service was great. I don't normally like it when a service charge is automatically charged, as I like to tip depending on my experience, but on this occasion it was deserved. Overall a lovely place.

I really like the Broad Chare so perhaps this was an off day. Our server was friendly enough but one hardly gets an acknowledgement from anyone else particularly when leaving. The burger and fishcakes took 35 minutes and needed a reminder and very disappointingly the burger is no longer avaiable pink presumably because of H&S.

The food, runs and service were great. The only thing I can moan about is the fact that if you buy and expensive bottle of wine (or two) you get charged 10% extra for them, so a £60 bottle of wine is really £66, etc. Thanks, Clive

Once again the Broad Chare has come up trumps. We ordered the 1kg Rump which came perfectly cooked. Don't really know how we had room for starters and Puds too but we did. Thanks again to the Broad Chare for a excellent meal and dining experience. We will be back!

went today for fish and chips seeing as it was good Friday but don't think it was value for money we ordered 3 portions with 1 kids portion and we couldn't see a difference apart from double the price the fish was nice but about 12 oven chips and a small fish for £12.50 isn't value for money I'm afraid

Visited with family of 4 for late Sunday Lunch. Had a drink in the bar downstairs, good friendly service. Three of us ordered Roast beef and Yorkshire pudding . We were not impressed with the meal, had much better elsewhere. The Yorkshire pudding, roast potatoes and cauliflower cheese were probably made early morning as they did not taste fresh. They do charge 10% for service, but we did not mind as the service was very good.

My sisters and I enjoyed our evening although the food could have been better. Frozen prawns, only just defrosted so a little watery and the liver was over cooked so rather tough. However, it was a good atmosphere and a nice place to be

Nice upmarket pub feel, menu hasn’t changed for years but what’s there is excellent. Decent selection of beers although wine list a bit uninspiring. Comfortable. Very good service!

Once again, another very nice meal. The staff are friendly and food was top notch. I had the fish cakes, but had food envy over the ham hock that was served on a Wednesday. My guests from India also loved the Writer's Block!

Really good interesting menu, and with daily 'traditional' specials. I had a pigeon and celeriac starter and then mince meat and dumplings. Good value and in great location by the quayside. We will go again next time we are in Newcastle.

We had been recommended to go by friends. The three of us were welcomed by the very pleasant staff. We enjoyed our meal with a reasonably-priced bottle of wine. Everything arrived in good time and was freshly cooked. Very important with fish and chips! The restaurant was packed but we were still able to chat without feeling the need to shout. Couldn't fault it and will go again.

Broad Chare offers such a variety of hearty and flavorsome meals.

The atmosphere is really nice based on the number of covers they have.

Coupled with an amazing selection of beers and wine bins, you cannot go wrong!!

Always an enjoyable experience at Broad Chare, with friendly staff and great food. Our only niggle is that... like so many places nowadays... acoustics are not taken seriously enough. Hard surfaces everywhere, with no softness to reduce a very high ambient noise level. It's sometimes difficult to hold a conversation even just with one other diner. A shame but, regrettably, not unusual today.
