Everything was spot on from the decor to the service and lovely food. Guest beer was lovely too as well as their own.

The food is good, not great, but good. BUT... The drinks are amazing, 2 for 1 cocktails! (everyday, all day) I think there are a couple of simple changes that would make The Hop and Cleaver so much better. My family and I we’re stopping over for 1 night, at the Travelodge just up the road. We decided to go to The Hop and Cleaver because it was close and the whole vibe of the place looked interesting. When we sat down, the menus were already on the table for our perusal. First thing I noticed was that there is no information next to any of the cocktails and also the food menu is strange. There’s limited choice for mains and it’s difficult to understand what you actually get. Especially the Crates/sharers, which is what originally attracted us the most. So either add more information to your menus or train your staff to explain the menus when they show you to your table. But like I say - cocktails - beaut!

Food was really impressive, on a par with other good food restaurants I’ve been to, it was only let down by slow service, which I can understand on a busy Friday or Saturday evening...but not 7.30 on a Wednesday, especially as it was only half full....

We were here on a stag do with a big group and having arranged everything before hand, everything went down to a tee! We were promised free growlers of beer after a slight mix up with the booking we were after and this went down a treat.The service was excellent and maybe some of the best we've experienced. The food itself was sublime, everyone gave it 10/10, it was really THAT good! If we're ever in Newcastle again I will definitely be heading back there again!

Great beer, very average food. Some of the ribs very dry and tough, not much flavour in the wings. Sunny Sunday evening but bar and restaurant virtually empty.

The onion rings we had where full of raw flour. I mentioned this to the waitress and nothing was done. I would have expected the price to be taken off the bill it was only done when I asked. The sticky Lorene wings were not sticky the sauce infact was pooled in the bottom of the bowl they were in and no flavour on the wings they just weren’t right. Mentioned this as well but same again nothing done. Paid for them as I did eat like 8 of the 30 we ordered. The other wings smokey and bbq where amazing tho, so would go back but not in a hurray.

What an absolutely brilliant night. The staff were great and made should we had everything we needed. They were always at hand but never in the way. The food was also outstanding and great value for money. We brought a group of 21 people and everyone of them plans on making a return visit. Well done!!

Really enjoyed the night. Couldn't get over the portion size of the tacos. Not just for one person. But food was good and nice atmosphere.

Good set-up for a large party (x18), especially if pre-ordered.
