Summary

In a Grade II-listed Art Deco cinema, this “bustling, happy” spot is “a part of Tyneside folklore” turning out “comfort food at its best”. The place “has managed to retain the best of the past” – indeed, it’s the UK’s last surviving newsreel theatre in full-time operation – while adding “modern favourites too” (“they now do gluten-free sandwiches”!)

Summary

“A Tyneside institution beloved by all ages” that's recommended as a “very cosy place to meet before a film”; it offers “straightforward, comfort food (and some adventurous stuff)” in the Art Deco surrounds of a Grade II, 1930s cinema (apparently the last remaining Newsreel theatre to be in full-time operation in the UK).

Summary

“A North East institution”, this long-established café, in an Art Deco cinema building, enjoys “almost cult status” locally; “haute cuisine isn’t the point”“comfort food is”, and the “always buzzing” atmosphere is hard to beat.
