The atmosphere is relaxed and chirpy, I use the word "chirpy" because I was practically vibrating in my seat with excitement over the delicious novelty of having my dinner whilst watching the big screen. Now, I know what you're thinking dear readers - no cinema experience is complete without a big bucket of popcorn, however the menu kindly caters to your cravings by offering an unconventional sweet AND savoury option, coming in the form of popcorn panna cotta and the house made savoury popcorn, either smothered in truffle butter or duck fat and rosemary.
Of course no dinner would be complete without the obligatory order of dessert! I had homemade cookies and milk whilst Martin went for the mouthwatering sticky toffee pudding. My cookies arrived warm and gooey and the milk was actually frothy vanilla milk, ideal for dipping! We washed all this down with a complimentary glass of white wine as we got comfy in our corner and watched the rest of the film. Overall, we had a thoroughly enjoyable experience at the Tyneside Bar Café and will now probably (to the misfortune of the staff) make it our regular haunt, popping in for a pint or two with a cheeky film on the side.
