Old Orleans (Newcastle) Reviews
Newest Review: ... room. The resturant is upstairs. It does sometimes get busy, but never too busy - and you will not have to wait too long to get served at the bar. As the name suggests, it has a jazz theme with the music being mostly easy listening/piano/jazz. The music is not too loud and it has a pleasant relaxing atmosphere, so Old Orleans can be a nice place to meet friends for a drink and a chat. The cocktails here are delicous but can be pricey at around £7, whereas spirits and lagers etc are available at average prices - not cheap but not expensive. I have not been impressed with the food here. The menu offers a range of burgers, wraps, steak... more

Old Orleans Bar/resturant is very conveniently located in the centre of Newcastle, right by the Haymarket Metro station and bus concourse.

Two bottles of beer/ Alco pops for £5 or cocktails for £3 at happy hour which runs until 7pm or 8pm (depending on what night you go in!!) However outside of happy hour the ...

Old Orleans is a chain restaurant, with it's menu content being loosely based on Cajun/ Tex-Mex food. The Newcastle branch is very well located for the city centre, and close to the Haymarket bus station.

The entrance is straight into the pub area, and the restaurant is upstairs, although set around the large staircase, making the place seems very bright and welcoming. The restaurant walls are decorated in posters, banjos and other artefacts from the 'deep south'. This seemed a little 'twee' but not too ... Read the complete review
