We went for the afternoon tea with the Hendricks G&T teapot which is something I have never had before and pretty good value at £12.50 per head. The G&T was served in lovely pots with ice and lemon and was delicious, although the tea cups...More

Brilliant gin and tonics, cocktails, and service. Nice atmosphere outside in the sunshine watching all the super cars that pose in the area, and when we went inside once the sun had gone in, the atmosphere was just as nice around the bar area.

Lovely bar, with a great atmosphere and beautiful cocktails. Only disappointment was that the 2 for 1 cocktails did not extend to Saturday as well as we would've returned for round 2.

Situated on Grey Street in Newcastle, The Living Room is a contemporary bar and restaurant with a laid-back vibe that keeps the locals coming back for more. During the day, it's the ideal place to do business over lunch or refuel after a day of shopping. In the evening, the modern eatery fills up with a lively post-work crowd catching up over cocktails. The fixed price menu is great value for money and there is plenty to choose from with all our dishes made with top quality seasonal ingredients. With dishes such as Thai fish cakes, Monkfish and Pork Blocks that not only taste great but look it too why not come and try?
