Best Sunday lunch we've been served in a long time! A good malbec too, all with the bonus of good jazz musicians. We'll be back.

Organised a hen do here which took place yesterday and the service, from booking with Lynda, right through to the cocktail class with Ryan, was five star. Excellent venue, brilliant cocktails, delicious food and really well looked after. Everyone had an excellent time so thank you so much.

We love visiting Bonbar for Sunday lunch as were never disappointed. The food is delicious and the service is 5 star. We understand there’s a few issues atm and that’s why Sunday lunch is only once a month, we hope this resolves soon and normal service resumes. Bonbar is the best place in Newcastle FACT!!

Hired booth 7 which when we arrived was not in the position it was on the website it was in fact further away from the stage and on the opposite side?! During the night the radiators directly behind the booth where on full heat. I asked for the radiators to be turned off at least 5 times and they never were. I asked again and then I was told it was not possible to turn them off? Of course it’s possible to turn radiators off. Not once did anyone come to apologise or explain. It was so hot and uncomfortable all night sat in the booth. Really disappointing. The waitress service was very average. We got our drinks and then i didn’t see a waitress for the rest of the night. I came thinking this would be waitress service like in the big clubs in the big cities across the world but i was really let down. The bar is good but i wouldn’t pay for the booth or table service again.

We had a booking for 6 on Mother’s Day and despite a mix up thinking we had booked when apparently I hadn’t we had a late lunch. My wife a little surprised it was like a night club on entry but glasses of bubbly for all mothers and I even blagged one for my daughter for her 30th which was that day. A joy to find lamb on the menu which we all had and was lovely and tender. The accompaniments were cooked well and very tasty. Sweets I fancied and orders the crumble albeit no custard: to find the chef made me some. Top meal out, attentative service, a nice jazz singer and a overall fantastic experience. Thank you

Was charged different prices when I arrived by the hostess compared to what I was told prior to the night and one of the drinks options I had ordered was out of stock on the night. However, overall I had a good night and would return
