* Based on a three course dinner, half a bottle of wine, coffee, cover charge, service and VAT.

A former stomping ground of overachieving North East chef Terry Laybourne – this “smart” boutique hotel overlooking Jesmond Dene certainly provides a “lovely setting for a special occasion” – most particularly afternoon tea. As of 2018, Danny Parker (ex-of starred Newcastle venue House of Tides) took over chef duties from longtime former incumbent Michael Penaluna, but feedback on more serious fare is still very mixed (eg “food OK, but not value for money”).

“A gorgeous spot for a great afternoon selection of treats” or “great-value breakfast”: Terry Laybourne’s boutique hotel makes a top destination, boosted by its “lovely setting”“a grand dining room with spectacular views of Jesmond Dene”. For a more substantial meal it’s recommendable but with reservations: “good, sometimes great, but also often disappointing”.

Terry Laybourne’s boutique hotel occupies “a lovely old house in a wooded ’dene’” in the city’s most “salubrious suburb”. It’s one of the town’s top gastronomic destinations thank to its high quality cuisine, including a selection of steaks (“in other top north eastern venues fish generally rules”).
