“Staff are horrific”

Central Oven & Shaker
Ranked #261 of 1,205 Restaurants in Newcastle upon Tyne
Price range: US$7 - US$28
Description: Prominently situated opposite Central Station, Central Oven & Shaker is named so for its love of pizza & sprits. There's no sign of taches or Vespas, but we give a subtle nod to the bygone heydeys or 1950s & 60s pizza parlours, brought about by our European counterpart Naples.

Disgusting service.

We had absolutely lovely day looking for suits for my future wedding and we went in here looking for water and a pizza we were told that we would not be served at all. Manager just saw six guys and one girl walking in and was absolutely unreasonable from the get-go. We were seated and asked for water, after half an hour we went to the bar and asked if we could get the water we asked for, at which point the manager told us we would absolutely not be served in there under any circumstances because my father hd forgotten his mask.
After we decided to leave, the best man asked to speak to the manager to ask why and stood at the bar with his mask on and was told to f off by the manager (the one with the bald head). I've never been treated so rudely by any bar staff ever before. On the way out I was crying I was so upset and an awful bleach hair barman with a mullet shouted BYEEE in my face.

They ruined a perfectly lovely day for us and I would not recommend booking here at all.

Lovely and clean and a nice environment to have drinks or food. We went for drinks, 2 for 1 cocktails they told us as we sat down. So we both ordered a porn star martini each. However the bill came to £13.15! A bit expensive for 2 for 1 so wouldn’t return in a rush.

I have lived in Newcastle for over 2 years and this tops one of the worst places to visit. The DJ Was top notch though…he was great!! Otherwise, cocktails were not great, unfair treatment of people of colour ( being black myself) and bad service overall. Would not recommend at all!! Don’t order the watermelon cocktail unless you want to die of diabetes ( pic shows the cocktail not to order).

Today me and my boyfriend got food and cocktails here and we were served by a very attentive Irish blonde waitress. She was quick to serve us and really friendly, would definitely go back!!!!
