This review is for the recent pop up for Tata Eatery that was upstairs of the Newman Arms, serving a creative and inspiring twist to Japanese and oriental dishes.

The only impression I got of the service at the Newman Arms itself was pretty bad. How can a member of staff watch me go into the direction of the male toilets and not say anything. Very rude.

However service was great upstairs,...more

Cute, cosy pub.

Great music, good ales.

Visited the pop up Ta ta eatery upstairs... totally recommended.

Super inventive pan-asian/european food in a tapas tasting dish style (circa £4-£6 a plate for some excellent flavours).

Friendly staff.

In the end, the food at Newman Arms is an interesting one for me, is it better than your everyday pubs? Totally, but is it anywhere near the level of a top gastropub? Places like the Smokehouse and Anchor & Hope are a mile ahead right now. I failed to understand why most of the press and bloggers are rating it so highly, is it because of the unique concept? For me, just that alone isn't enough...more

A small pub with an upstairs dining room tucked into a side street near Goodge Street. It looks and feels as if it has always been there (and probably has). All dark wood fittings and low ceilings. The stairs down to the gents are actually stone.

A nice amount of beers on tap and the nuts are a bargain! Friendly staff make it an enjoyable experience. We were heading to a pop up dinner there...more
