Grey Street, Newcastle upon Tyne

Grey Street lies within the heart of Newcastle's historic district of Grainger Town. Built by Richard Grainger, this famous street contains several points of interest. Forty percent of the buildings in the area are listed for their architectural and historical import, the majority of which hails from the 1830s. Visit the Theatre Royal and with its impressive facade, excellent for photos. A short walk away stands the Grainger Market for your fruit and vegetable needs, and don’t forget to stop by the diminutive Marks and Spencer stall.

  • Service was spot-on. Good range and quality of drinks. Menu was very quirky. A few 'unexplained definitions, but otherwise plenty of choice. If you love your Mac n cheese American style this is right up your street. If not, ask for cheddar, they're happy to oblige. Burger cooked to perfection. Moist and heavy. Maybe a glossary on the wall would help with the menu, otherwise brilliant...
  • Great variety of burgers - While the menu changes a little too frequently for my liking it never fails to impress. Personal favourite, which is no longer available was the Kimcheese burger. Truly divine.
  • Good atmosphere and food, shame about the price of the food
  • Staff were friendly, burger was brilliant, really tasty and plenty of flavours, the chips were rubbish, went for a cheese sauce. £4.50 for a small cup with a bland cheese sauce, not as good as McDonald's chips I don't like McDonald's.
  • Helpful staff. Swift service. Nice restaurant interior. Having g never been ' Byroned' before I would happily go back
