Morpeth's Black Door restaurant has good ambience. The food is an overpriced disappointment. Starters were small and basic (smoked salmon and roasted peppers). The waitress forgot to mention the specials board to us. The wooden platter served game and fish pies were inadequate main courses. The game pie, padded out with potato and carrot, was almost meat free and served with a puff pastry lid that was very similar to those available elsewhere in the town at half the price from microwave pub kitchens! The sweet courses were better presented but tiny and at the end of our late January Saturday evening meal the bar area had become yet another youngsters drinking spot making egress difficult.

Relatively unsullied by commerce it has retained a grand simplicity in its classical black doors and large sash windows framed serenely in sandstone blocks. Its location too has an air of serenity, surprising given its hop-and-skip proximity to the central station and view over Newcastle’s most well know lane of ill repute. Nestling discreetly within this calm, lays the ... Read the complete review
