Felt completely at ease and as safe as possible because of the excellent Covid precautions during a 70th birthday celebration with family. The food was fantastic as was the friendly but professional service. Well done everyone in the team.

Ordered 3 coures off lunch menu was disappointed to find no al acarte .this was available the last time we visited for lunch. My sirloin steak was tough it was replaced with another one but this was the same.these steaks in my mind were more like rump,I requested a refund which was removed from the bill.i eat quite a lot of steak and never had sirloin like this.the first time we came was in February for my wife's birthday it was first class.this was why I returned for anniversary as we could celebrate during lockdown.the rest of the meal was ok but disappointed as my wife had to eat her meal by herself as I waited for another steak which went back.so it wasn't what I had hoped for.

We were really looking forward to our Sunday Lunch at the restaurant, and we were certainly NOT disappointed on 2nd Aug. It was a great experience. Good food and wine in a great location on the banks of the River Tyne. We will be returning soon.

Food was nice on sat night 1st Aug 2020 ,although wedid feel the music was too loud and especially as one of our guests has to lip read and with all the staff wearing masks we had to pass on what they were saying to our guest . Also the restaurant is in a fabulous position on the river and we all felt the lights hanging at the window very distracting . All in all the staff were good the food was good the wine was good and will definitely use again .

Welcome Back. Thank you for the social distancing measures in place, this did not distract from the lovely food, warm welcome and great evening we had back at 31 The Quay. We hope to visit many more times and we can’t wait to try the dine at home and deli options.

Well, all I can say is that everything was up to your usual impeccably high standard, hence 5 stars all round. The food was amazing ! There was a lovely atmosphere in the restaurant, all of the staff were very obviously happy to be back. We felt very safe with all of the safety measures in place. We’re booked in again on the 15th, and will be over for lunch in the next week or two.
