    First time there tonight, absolutely superb. Food was as good as D’Acqua although the service could do with a bit polishing. At almost half the price though it’s fantastic.

    We were booked in tonight for a Beer and Beef 10 course meal (was only going to be £35) but due to lack of interest ended up there on the normal menu.

    For anyone who’s thought about going and hasn’t, please do. You won’t be disappointed and it would be a real shame for the students to lose out on the real world experience they’re gaining.

    10 courses, what could you possibly have? 9 pints and a steak...

    It’s not somewhere that automatically comes to mind but I’ll try and remember.

    The bloke was saying once a month they’re looking at doing some beauty/lunch combo thing. Maybe you could get a facial and a bit sausage for the same price?

    Mention Adam for a free couple off behind the bike sheds?

    A joint venture with Sinatras? I never know when you're being serious.

    Truffle emulsion? Never order anything in a restaurant if you can't tell it from spit.

    It’s at the new campus next to Park Lane. Not sure if that one still has the catering facilities.

    For our Sandy based posters, South Tyneside College does a Marksy’s style “dine in for a tenner” on Wednesdays where you can collect a three course meal and a bottle of wine. Not had it yet, but supposed to be very good.

    I go reasonably regular, I think you're doing City Bistro a bit of a dis-service. For me it knocks the socks off D'Acqua for food. I haven't been to D'Acqua for ages mind you, as I have only been disappointed by it and couldn't understand the rave reviews, maybe I should try it again? D'Acqua is the only place I've had the same piece of veal which was both under and over-cooked!

    This. Haven't been to City Bistro yet but really want to get round to it. I'm glad to hear it knocks D'Acqua's socks off because I really don't get the rave reviews it gets. I've never found it anymore than distinctly average.

    Tbh mate I’m being serious 99% of the time on here but this is a little tongue in cheek.They should speak to someone though who can keep a good pint ie:Sinatra’s ,Joseph’s ,Gunner Club ,Avenue ,Railway Tavern,Railway Club ,Westlea club to name a few.


    Regarding knowing Mark and the girls that 100% ,I wouldn’t tell lies like that and undo all my hard work on here .I go in once a Fortnight to let the girls loose on my beard and hair whilst Mark keeps clock .
