“A perfect time-warp” – the “Art Deco bar/cafe” in Newcastle’s only surviving independent cinema “hasn’t changed in 50 years and more”. “My family are into our fourth generation coming here since the 60s and we’re still enjoying our coffee, tea, sandwiches, baked potatoes and other light meals” (and “specials sell out quickly for good reason”). Particularly tipped for breakfast, coffee or a light lunch, it’s “also a great venue for singles – you won’t feel out of place!”
A slice of Art Deco history – this “fantastic” café at the UK’s last surviving newsreel theatre has been a Newcastle institution for 80 years. It’s a “happy place, with a cheerful atmosphere and homely food” – “sometimes just tea and toast is ideal before a film”.
“A piece of Art Deco history” – this “unique” spot houses the UK’s last full-time newsreel theatre. “I’ve been coming here since I was a little girl in the early 1960s and it still feels the same”… this extends to the “very simple and straightforward food (eg eggs on toast)”, but it’s “a charming place to have a light lunch or cuppa”.
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”!)
