Harden's survey result
Casual fine dining is the style nowadays at this buzzy Quayside destination, which occupies an address made famous in its days as ‘21 Queen Street’ (long RIP). There is a conventional two-course/three-course menu, but also competitively priced 5-course and 7-courses options featuring more “unusual taste combinations”. All are well-reviewed as “always reliable” and “delicious” as is the “friendly and attentive service”. See also its siblings: Blackfriars Restaurant in Newcastle and Hinnies in Whitley Bay.
On the Quayside, this location “has had several reinventions since the old days of 21 Queen Street and is a very worthy successor”. There’s a capable set menu, or you can push the boat out and have a five-course or seven-course tasting menu, all at very affordable prices. “I like the location, the decor, the food and the overall experience!”
Chef Troy Terrington’s “refined European food” and a “lovely ambience” win praise for Andy Hook’s four-year-old venture on the Quayside (in times gone by, on the site of Café 21 and Pan Haggerty).

For 32 years we've been curating reviews of the UK's most notable restaurant. In a typical year, diners submit over 50,000 reviews to create the most authoritative restaurant guide in the UK. Each year, the guide is re-written from scratch based on this survey (although for the 2021 edition, reviews are little changed from 2020 as no survey could run for that year).

Dobson and Parnell Restaurant Diner Reviews
"Another restaurant which appears unable to serve hot food. Very disappointed "
"Had the seven course tasting menu which was excellent. Every course was tasty but the oyster, the scallop and the beef courses were exceptional."
"My wife and I visited Dobson & Parnell in Newcastle on 19/8/22 as part of Newcastle restaurant week. The choice of menu was fantastic, and the quality of the food superb. Friendly and efficient staff. All in all, a wonderful dining experience. I can highly recommend. Thank you"
