About Central Oven & Shaker
A one-stop-shop of wood-fired Neapolitan pizza, cocktails, weekend DJs, craft beer, salads and punch. Whether you're waiting for a train and fancy an afternoon coffee with a dip 'n' dough board, or some late-night slices and a boogie with the gang.
Too loud it was like eating in a nightclub.
Lovely and friendly staff, the place is lively, funky and cool. A perfect location, the food was yummy and the cocktails were affordable and there was so much to choose from! Would HIGHLY recommend!
The cocktails are amazing and really good value for money!
Good food - great choice on the restaurant week menu. Two for one cocktails were really good. Our server was friendly and chatty, but the service was a bit slow at times.
Meal was great, cocktails were brilliant, atmosphere lovely. Blonde female member of staff kept taking food to wrong tables, she took our starter to one incorrect table first, and the mains to two before they got to us. My prawn linguini was a little cold on arrival, probably because it was taken to a couple of other tables first! Female member of staff with dark hair was our main server, but when we paid by card and didn't leave a tip via the machine (we always tip cash, used to work in hospitality!) she was really snarky and said 'have a good night' in such a sarcastic voice that I didn't tip at all, and this actually would put me off returning!
Waitress was quite rude
Food was sublime. Atmosphere was average but it was a Saturday night and I guess someone has to be sat next to the 12-strong geordie shore wanna-be table. Unfortunatley that also meant that the strong service we received at first degraded into nothingness because that table was so loud and demanding. I imagine the staff just didn't want to come anywhere near that table for fear of being accosted by their loud obnoxious chants and whaling at each other so we suffered a bit as a result. The value was great for money we paid, however I can't say for the normal price of things as we were there during restaurant week. I would definatley go back though, the food was great and so was the service at the beginning and it is a beautiful restaurant in a great location. I've recommended several people already. See you next time Central.
Very slow service on a night that wasn’t busy. Order came incorrect etc no apologies.
The restaurant week menu starter choices were a bit limited but the pasta, pizza and cocktails were super.
Friendly efficient service. Our chicken pesto and beef ragu pizzas were delicious. Will definitely return
Absolutely loved the cocktails. They're delicious! And the pizzas are amazing too.
Calamari is spot on, chips was ok but the pizza was lush! Shame i couldn't eat it all but happy to take the box home which was handy. Will deffo visit again.
Absolutely amazing food and service
Very nice pizza
Amazing pizzas, would return. Waitress smashed a glass at the table & she did clear it up but we got shards of glass all over thata why service got 3. Not really much apology
We came for drinks as part of my friends hen party and the staff were really accommodating and we all had lots of fun!
fantastic bar and service is great cocktails are lovely.. haven't had the pleasure of good yet but hopefully soon.
Me and my mam went for a meal on Thursday as they offer two pizzas for £10 and two for one cocktails on that day. When we arrived we were shown straight to our seat and given our menus. The restaurant was very busy and very noisy due to the live DJ which made conversation almost impossible. Once we had ordered we only waited around 5 minutes for our pizzas to arrive which we were very pleased about, however when they arrived my pizza was very poorly made and the toppings had hardly been spread with some slices of my pizza not having any toppings at all, including the tomato base! I asked a member of staff if I could have my pizza put back into the oven to melt my cheese as it was it was in hard blocks on the slices of pizza that actually had toppings on. The waitress very kindly took my pizza away to be heated up, however told me that there was nothing they could do about it as it had already been cooked. The food was tasty but very disappointing, however they were offering two pizzas that range from £12-14 each for £10 so we could not grumble much as this is a brilliant saving. Overall the customer service from staff was brilliant, but the food was very disappointing considering I had visited the restaurant just a few weeks before and received a lovely meal. I may wait a while before visiting again, and definitely will not be going back on a Thursday !!
The starters were absolutely delicious, the pizza that had meatballs and olives was incredibly tasty, the pasta and meatballs however did lack a lot flavour and was very disappointing leaving it bland. The pornstar martini however was incredible, well presented and had a gorgeous flavour with a huge kick of alcohol. Staff were so nice, smiling and very helpful. The restaurant was clean with a welcoming atmosphere, only down fault was the tables having no salt, pepper or other condiments. Will visit again.
Taster session of new menu was absolutely amazing. Can't fault it, will definitely be back! Staff are friendly and welcoming and a nice speedy service! Big thumbs up from me and my Mam :)
Pizzas are fabulous especially the carbonara pizza! Cocktails were yummy and made to perfection! great service!
Very welcoming staff Fantastic food Great atmosphere
This is my favorite pizza/pasta place in Newcastle. I always recommend it to my friends. Great food! Great value! And great service
Lovely atmosphere and environment. New food menu was lovely. Linguine was amazing and the meatball and olive pizza also spot on. Drink selection good although price of a pint of beer on the expensive side. Good attentive staff.
Fantastic venue, service was amazing. Very short wait for our food and it was lovely. Will definitely return.
