You wouldn’t necessarily expect it from the unassuming façade, but former River Café alum Nick Grieve's “small but adventurous” bistro on the main road through Jesmond turns out some “outstanding quality” food – currently in the format of a six-course, no-choice menu (£59).

“On the coast road through Jesmond not far out of Newcastle’s centre”, and hiding behind a “shop-front style façade that doesn’t really do it justice”, Nick Grieve’s bistro proves to be a “cosy” and “romantic” spot, with “lots of care taken to source and present quite excellent dishes”. “Brilliant Sunday lunch” too – “hooray!”

“Simplicity disguises outstanding cooking” at Nick Grieve’s stylish modern bistro in Jesmond, where the menu is pretty short and to the point, but brilliantly well-realised.

For 31 years we've been curating reviews of the UK's most notable restaurant. In a typical year, diners submit over 50,000 reviews to create the most authoritative restaurant guide in the UK. Each year, the guide is re-written from scratch based on this survey (although for the 2021 edition, reviews are little changed from 2020 as no survey could run for that year).
