We booked the Hop and Cleaver for a birthday meal and drinks with a large group of friends. The atmosphere, food and service was fab! We were seated in the tap room which was perfect for the occasion. Highly recommend!

The food was really good, however we had to wait 50 minutes for it. I understand that it is busy as it's wings Wednesday, but when putting on an offer like this you have to prepare for high volume orders. The wait time would make me reconsider coming again which is a shame because the wings were actually really good.

This was my first visit to Hop & Cleaver and I really enjoyed it. The building is great - I loved the old oak beams, the stone floors and the little courtyard. The service was great, the cocktails were really carefully prepared and the staff were friendly. I especially enjoyed the soundtrack which was mainly reggae classics on the night we were there - great for relaxing and unwinding to. The food was good, and good value too - we got loads of fries! The brioche bun with our burgers did tend to disintegrate a bit, but that's the only thing I can find to complain about! (Maybe a little mini Oreo cookie or some such thing with the coffee would be a nice touch?)

Perfect experience from booking. We were met at the door and taken straight to our tables, we were a large group and were served very promptly. We had opted for the party crates and the food was excellent and plentiful. Staff were very friendly and accommodating and there was a great atmosphere. Will certainly be back and recommending to anyone heading to Newcastle. Thanks!

Took a little while to receive the bill but had really friendly service. Food and drinks were nice if not a little bit pricey. Would come back.

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!
