Booked an area for a friends hen do, so responsive with emails, making sure everything was organised, any questions I had quickly replied to. An email reminder on the day to put my mind at ease that it wasn't forgotten. Allowed us time to come in early and decorate, staff were friendly and helpful offering help with setting up. Atmosphere was quiet but think this was due to it being early evening however this allowed us to be able to actually chat which was a nice change! Would definitely recommend to friends. The night couldn't have gone any better and it was all down to friendly staff, an inviting environment and amazing correspondence when booking.

A fabulous hen party for 15, we had full use of the private club with 2 bar staff for the day. Food was lovely and the room was great. Lewis and Lola were fantastic on the bar and made the day very fun and relaxed for us all, they were brilliant and tailored the experience to the groups dynamics perfectly. All 15 had a fabulous time and commented on the great venue. Would highly recommend and will definitely go back! Thanks!

Surprising venue, but service was very good throughout the service, staff were attentive and helpful. Quality of the food was also very good, with good portion size. I recommend this to anyone who is thinking of going, from the restaurants I have visited for Sunday lunch, this is up there with the best.

Food was lovely and the staff were great with our 2 little ones Aswell - making them ‘mocktails’ at the bar. Just such a shame it was so quiet - we were literally the only customers in there for the duration of our lunch , which made the atmosphere quite flat sadly.

We enjoyed the afternoon tea and the food was really nice. Staff were lovely too. However I do have a few issues. When booking, I was required to pay the full amount over the phone which I didn’t agree with, nor do I think it’s necessary. A deposit would have been fine and then the rest of the payment on the day. Also, my boyfriend was called up for deployment in the army and wasn’t able to come with us anymore which meant that I was not allowed any money back as I had already paid. I don’t think this was very fair given the circumstances. It wasn’t as if he just changed his mind, it wasn’t physically possible for him to get there. Therefore I lost £18.

Hi Giovanna, We're really pleased you had a lovely afternoon tea with us. As all of our Aftenoon Teas are prepared freshly and especially for those booked in, therefore we have to guarantee payment prior. I'm sorry your boyfriend didn't make it - perhaps you could bring him back another time and we can offer you a complimentary bottle of fizz? Please contact our office on 0191 232 8695 to book a booth. Best wishes Jess :)

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!!
