**UPDATE – Fisherman’s Lodge closed not long after and has not reopened**
We are big advocates for the abandonment of Tripadvisor – in fact that’s why we started Newcastle Eats in the first place. If more people would look up some decent reviews of a place before going, rather than a quick browse on TA, we’d be happy. But sometimes you can’t ignore it – especially with classic management replies like this:
“your ingratitude…demonstrates typical bad manners of some people in this region”.
“your(sic) obviously another Egon Ronay – which seeing as he has gone is good to hear”
“we could not put (fish) on the menu for anything less than £30-£40 a dish”.
“i was told (my car) would be clamped…the manager threatened to set his german shepard(sic) on me”.
