Friday night dinner at the Victoria Bar and Kitchen, Low Fell in Gateshead was a pleasant surprise. Food is served from lunchtime till 9.30pm and there are several options on offer, but the main event is definitely the rotisserie.
Half a roast chicken with a choice of 2 sides, I chose roast baby spuds with rosemary and sea salt alongside pak choi and peas and not only was it delicious it was a very reasonable £8.00.
There were also burgers a plenty, which resembled a burger tower with the addition of onion rings and fries and some nice steaks were on offer too.
The décor is very quirky with lots of sanded, stained wood tables with cute home style kitchen touches. Service was quick, efficient and pleasant. A real fire added to the homeliness and although it was a Friday night, it was very family friendly.
The bar is open plan to the dining area and although it can get noisy it wasn’t distracting. You can access the dining area without going through the bar so for those with younger kids it’s not an issue.
There’s a small car park attached which is very handy and when we arrived at 6.30pm the car park was already full. Within an hour, every table was taken so it’s worth booking in advance for peak time dining at the weekends.
Real ale is on offer in the bar, plus free wifi throughout (how else would the kids survive!!).
A real gem in the heart of Low Fell, like turning up in your old ma’s kitchen for some comforting home cooked food, without breaking the bank. I’d recommend a visit and I’ll certainly be back.
