A wonderful new restaurant that we can't wait to return to! Great service, stunning food from the open-plan kitchen and a cool, relaxed place to be. Tip-top.

Lovely food and excellent service. Do hope word gets around as it would be great to see it busier. Perhaps a promotion in Whitley Bay Guardian or similar and better signage approaching restaurant.

Wonderful birthday celebration. Staff are excellent and food was superb. Compliments to the chef. Great attention to detail. Perhaps a dedicated front of house would be an added bonus? Perhaps better signage outside restaurant and on approach would attract more customers as it is slightly off beaten track. Need somewhere to hang coats with Winter approaching. Otherwise 5*.

Had a lovely meal with all the family on Saturday. Food was extremely good and the restaurant is nice and light with plenty of space between tables. The staff were excellent and did a wonderful job looking after us. The only downside was that I booked quite a few weeks beforehand and asked for a window table with a river view as it was my husbands 75th birthday. On the night apparently someone sat at our reserved table and the staff couldn't move them on. We therefore didn't get the table asked for. A bit disappointing but the staff did give us another table with a side river view. All in all a good experience and we will certainly return.

Absolutely wonderful. From entering one is made to feel totally welcome. The selection of wines is amazing, the views out of this World and the staff and ambience could not have been improved on. The food so delicious and abundant too. I won't be waiting for an excuse for a re-visit. Friday night will be at 31 for their super fish choices. Thanks to Andrew and his lovely staff for a special evening.

Another great experience at 31 - they are so attentive and Sunday lunch is good value. And it’s fab to watch the boats go by while you’re eating - it’s my new favourite place - must try breakfast next

We had Sunday lunch which we really enjoyed, couldnt fault it.Only negative point I would say is to turn the music down a little and maybe play something quiet and subtle in the background.
