Nice meals - Edit

Pretty good choice for vegetarians and vegans. One 'sandwich' style meal was vegan, the vegetarian brunch could be veganized, 1 lighter lunch and 3 main meals were also vegan. All bread options were vegan. I had char-grilled vegetable wraps with hummus and side salad.

It's mostly am old wooden and brick look inside, pretty rustic and fat larger than it looks from the outside. Staff are nice and friendly and it wasn't busy went I went (a Friday lunchtime). Vegan, vegetarian and gluten-free options were marked on the menu, but oddly the side orders weren't marked.

Disabled access was OK - sit on the left of the door since the other side has a step. The disabled toilet really smelt bad and like strong fragrance was making what needed cleaning. It was also hard to turn into since there were spare chairs just in the alcove before it - the chairs looked out of the way until you tried to turn and couldn't. The toilet roll holder is also the kind the toilet roll breaks in so there ends up with none.

Pros: Lovely food, good choice , Wheelchair access , Nice staff, quick service

Cons: Disabled toilet needs improving

Nice enough but lack of effort for vegan food - Edit

We came here last week and between us had one vegan and one vegetarian breakfast each and it was really disappointing to see that the vegan option was exactly the same as the vegetarian one just without the eggs, even though it was the same price - it would have been better if they'd offered some extra of any of the other things on the plate. It was nice enough and filled a hole. The one big upside was that they mark their beers with stickers to show if they're vegan or not which was a nice touch.

Oh the alcoholic afternoons - Edit

Very nice setting on Newcaste's Quayside right next to the law courts and a stone's throw from the Gateshead Millennium Bridge. Came across it by chance on the way to a gig at The Sage recently and popped in to watch the football and have a beer. A lot of money has been spent on the interior, I was most impressed. Head of Steams around the North of England are all generally inviting, quirky and appealing. This is no exception. Had a quick look at the food menu and I'm quite intrigued by the vegetarian breakfast which can be made as vegan if requested. They have a massive range of vegan beers on draft and in bottles many of which are clearly labelled as such. If you're after a quick snack or light bite then the spinach, chickpea and aubergine massala or chargrilled vegetable sandwich are the vegan options . The chunky fries here are always a winner too. If you want a more specialist vegan pub experience I would suggest the Ship Inn in Ouseburn which is within walking distance. The Head of Steam is definitely somewhere I could happily spend the evening over a few quality beers. As ever, most places on Newcastle Quayside become packed at weekends. We actually had to leave this place on a Saturday nignt because it was so busy at the bar and couldn't be bothered to wait to get served by the young but friendly staff who hadn't quite perfected the art of prioritisation. Obviously, these things take time.

Pros: great location, excellent selection of beers, vegan options

Cons: meat served
