Very quiet restaurant, Wendy our waitress was great and particularly with the kids. The food itself was ok, standard Fayre- but we weren’t expecting much on that front anyway.

Worst food i have ever eaten and extremely expensive. Avoid at all costs unless you want to be ripped off. We ordered an english breakfast for £14 which was very small, disgusting and unsatisfying.

Avoid this place it is very over priced for very small and crap portions. Possibly the worst breakfast I have ever had! This place should be shut down not good for the image of Newcastle Airport!!

Burger so greasy and horrible, chips were ok, coleslaw which was £4 a portion was horrible had a weird taste to it and was purple in colour. Wasn't even my order as the burger i ordered ended up going to the chap next to me and i know this cos i ordered before him and got my food after him (i ordered a cheese n bacon burger with no onion or mayo) what i got was a cheeseburger with onion and mayo. I ate it finished my pint waitress came over and asked if i would like the bill? Well why not its 7.18pm and i must have heard ot mentioned a dozen times or so that u shut at 7.30 so i paid up and went elsewhere and shall not be returning in the future.
