Great night in private room with loads of food and drink. Everyone enjoyed their night.
The food was amazing! We went on a Wednesday for the chicken wings promotion, and were not disappointed. Best wings ever! Also, great service! After I complained to management that the restaurant had been suddenly closed the previous week when we went there, even with a reservation, the General Manager Ali offered us complimentary wings to make up for it, which made the wings experience even better! The service staff are also very friendly. Planning to go back for wings here whenever possible!
I made a reservation for 9 pm on the 21st a week before and got a confirmation email the night before as well. On the day we were at Hop and Cleaver at 9 pm sharp, only to find that the restaurant was closed!! We were not informed of this or contacted in any way even though we had made a reservation. This was very disappointing as we were eagerly anticipating the Wings Wednesday promotion, which was even advertised on their Facebook page the day before!
Excellent food and good service, plus they gave me a Birthday Brownie with ice cream as a treat which was really appreciated for our group :)
Great night apart from one of the doorman. There were a number of occasions the same doorman kept coming into the room and awkwardly standing over us and staring through the window on his route past the outside of the building. This made us feel uneasy and intimidated.
Food was AMAZING especially the mac and cheese and great value for how much food you get! Would definitely recommend for anyone
Amazing food and atmosphere!
Service by staff fantastic very friendly however food was very slow to come out. Atmosphere good once we asked to move, a group were heavily under the influence and were knocking into our table as a couple it would have been nice to have been offered a table elsewhere however we were sat where they were and they were swearing loudly. My husband asked to be moved and staff were accommodating however group of people still continued until they left. Once they left we had an amazing night.
Our food was cold and honestly it was like wetherspoons. Really sad about this because it used to be a great place. Quality of the meat was terrible and I feel like the menu changes since I last came here are bad. Sad to say I won't be coming back :(
Great staff, very helpful and friendly The Food was tremendous and my party of 18 people all felt the same about the food too Will be back soon
The wings have nothing on sharks bar wings. There’s a reason there 25p not very much meat at all on them.
Restaurant was cold in temperature, ordered food only to be told that there was no halloumi and only certain things available 10 mins after putting out food order in. Food came quick and cold and pasta had to be sent back.
We used to call this place one of our favourites in Newcastle. Unfortunately the menu has changed and most of the famous slow cooked meats are gone now. The overall attention to food preparation seems to be not on the same high level as it used to be. It has been going down for the past 2 years. On our latest visit we had burgers served with some clearly old salad (yellow instead of green) and even one of us felt unwell after the meal. We will think twice before we come to this otherwise super cool place again.
Amazing food and lovely staff
Really good tasty food, fab service and atmosphere... Always have a great time here...
Drinks took a while to arrive, orderd a side order which was originally forgotten about and arrived as we were finishing our meal. Poor service and average food. Advertisement pictures were clearly edited.
Great food, slightly clumsy service
Thank you for the great service and great food. Everyone had a great time and we certainly recommend you to friends.
Food looked and tasted great, 3 of the party with me had cold food, cold flat iron steak, and 2 cold burgers. Served our mains even though we asked for starters, which we were told they were coming out. By the time we got into our mains before they got any colder, the starters were served. Nice drinks and good prices. Good background playlist. Shame about the food. Has potential.
Friendly staff . Great building . Food great . Hog skins a must
