During my birthday celebrations in Tynemouth earlier this month, as soon as we had checked into our accommodation and dropped off our bags we headed straight for Lola Jeans. We bagged ourself a snug little corner and browsed the menu. Sally from Martineau Guest House where we were staying recommended either the steak platter, seafood platter or chicken wings. So of course we ordered all three. Lola Jeans offers a selection of real ales too and hubby opted for one of those (I couldn't tell you which one) where as I ordered a glass of champagne - well it was my birthday after all!
Steak platter £11.95
The steak platter was just amazing. The prime rump steak was cooked to our liking (medium-rare) and served with homemade chunky chips, a well dressed salad, pitta breads and dips. There was a lot of steak for your money and it was tender as it should be and well seasoned. Simply delicious. I will definitely be ordering this again when I visit next.
Seafood platter £9.95
£9.95 is an absolute bargain for this platter which is packed with tiger prawns, crayfish, smoked salmon and mackerel. The seafood was served with a dressed salad, pitta breads, red onion chutney and olives. Everything was lovely and fresh and it is the perfect platter to match a glass of champagne.
Chicken Wings £5.95 for 5
These chicken wings are really something special. They are supersized, crispy and smothered in a deliciously tangy secret recipe sauce. They are very moreish and next time we will probably order 10 for £8.95 as I was left wanting more this time.
Lola Jeans was a perfect choice for a late lunch. The food is spot on, the service attentive and friendly and the atmosphere was nice and chilled. Our bill came to just over £30 including drinks which considering steak and champagne was involved is very reasonable.
Lola Jeans has recently expanded and has now opened on Market Street in Newcastle making it a good place to visit post or pre-theatre or to stop for lunch whilst shopping. You can find out more by liking their facebook page here.
