This was our second visit to Branches and we were not disappointed. Firstly, the manager who greets at the door is excellent, he remembered us from our last visit and had reserved us a table under the tree at my request as we were celebrating my children’s SAT’s results. He was so lovely to the kids as he knew from my email it was a special occasion and why we were there. He congratulated the children which made them feel really special. All of the staff here are very professional and attentive. The food is simply divine - my husband had the mango prawn starter and they even did me a small portion of carbonara for my starter as i wanted to try something different for my main but i had remembered the carbonara was so amazing. from the previous visit and didn’t want to miss out on getting a taste of it again. The flat iron steak is amazing, the chips are perfect and the beef jus is to die for. The kids fish and chips was amazing too. Thank you for a very enjoyable experience - we will be back.

We have been here a few times and also visited the restaurant in Ponteland. As always the food is on point and the staff and service are 100%. The management and staff seem to have this nack of making you feel like a superstar. It is our all-time favourite lunch and early dinner go-to restaurant. Value for money and amazing surroundings. The only thing I think they need is Air con. The restaurant can get hot at times, however, that's a personal opinion and not at all a criticism

Ate here to celebrate my Graduation with my family and it was such a treat! My mum is gluten free and they looked after her so well! The waiters were all incredible and very attentive. The venue is lovely and the food is amazing. Will definitely be returning!

Had a fabulous dinner here tonight. Graduation menu wonderful. Compare it to some of the best hotels we have been to with 5* food and service. Loved the hot bread rolls and seasoned salt. Goats cheese salad and pate just amazing. Can’t fault. Thank you for a perfect end to a perfect family gathering

We came here to celebrate moving to Newcastle so we wanted to find somewhere special, and Branches definitely delivered! The restaurant is beautifully decorated, and the atmosphere is so relaxed and pleasant despite actually being quite a busy place. The staff were all so friendly and attentive, we can't fault anything. There were nice touches throughout the evening, and the food was stunning. For starters we had the smoked salmon, and the tomato confit. Before the main they brought an amuse-bouche, which was a cauliflower cheese and potato ball, that was delicious and a nice surprise! For mains I had lamb which fell apart beautifully, probably the best lamb I've eaten in a restaurant. My boyfriend had steak which was perfectly cooked. Despite being stuffed by then, we had to order desserts because they sounded so good. We had the mango cheesecake, and the lemon sponge, again both were amazing. Thank you to the staff for a perfect evening. I would highly recommend this place!
