Visited The Stand New Years Eve. We didn't eat but the food looked good and it was very reasonably priced. A good selection of craft beers and many bottles to choose from. The comedy was good however the compete left a bit to be desired as did the first comic. Following their start I could only hope for better things... More

My husband and I had lunch here Friday 23 Dec 2016. The food was beautiful and nicely presented. Very friendly and attentive staff. Probably my favourite place to eat in Newcastle. I had eaten here 2 days earlier in the evening and had the lamb which was out of this world. Came back 2 days later for casual lunch and... More

I ate with a friend at The Stand's Bistro before attending a Friday night comedy gig at the venue. I was delighted to find a super menu and culinary delight here! Going for the fish and chips, I was served a fantastic dinner. Absolutely brilliant; will definitely be back to sample more of the menu.

I visited here today with my son and a couple of his friends. He had been before and said it was great and he was not wrong. There isn't a massive amount on the menu but they seem to change it daily as it had a date on it. We all went for a roast and were not disappointed. The... More

We had booked tickets for the Saturday Comedy Club and thought why not try the bistro. Quick phone call later and we're booked in. Very easy place to find. The menu isn't very extensive but the food is wonderful. For starters the wife had smoked chicken, ham hock & sun blushed tomato terrine,toasted organic sour dough, tomato & onion chutney.... More

We have been to the stand bistro a couple of times now (first time during restaurant week) and have found the food amazing both times. My boyfriend and I went for dinner before a show, he had squid to start which was excellent (and I was very jealous of) and I had the chicken and bacon terrine. Both very enjoyable.... More

Whether a date, meeting friends or with family this is a great evening and super cheap depending when you go. The student deals are excellent and if you follow them on Facebook they have lots of information about the deals they have going on. £5 Thursdays are excellent as you get food with your ticket. The nachos were huge and... More
