Harden's says

A Kickstarter campaign earlier in the year has funded a move from the Byker shipping container to a bricks-and-mortar building, where even more can happen, including dinner. Serving up accomplished all-day fare, chef Anna Hedworth also runs a food school, events, 'The Grazer' food blog and a supper club.

This Ouseburn outfit is “worth seeking out, even though it is off the beaten track”, for its “quirky but delicious food and really good service”. Founder Anna Hedworth worked at Quo Vadis and Rochelle Canteen in London before setting up in a shipping container in Newcastle, and moved on to the current open-kitchen venue six years ago.

A “really excellent find in a charming location”, “Anna Hedworth’s flagship restaurant in the Ouseburn serves an unusual and interesting menu” in “a quirky building just away from the city centre”. The former Quo Vadis and Rochelle Canteen chef started out here in a shipping container, before graduating to this upstairs, open-kitchen venue. (“Flawless… high praise from a veggie going to a ‘normal’ restaurant!”)

“Anna Hedworth’s gem of a restaurant has gone from strength to strength” since moving from its initial location in a shipping container (with a little help from Kickstarter) in 2018. “What a treat” it is, especially on the terrace, where you can enjoy accomplished small plates and an “unusual drinks list, much of it made on the premises” before carting off wares from their deli.

“A real star amongst Newcastle’s growing stable of good eateries” – ex-architect Anna Hedworth’s casual, all-day haunt has moved from its original home in a Byker shipping container to a bricks-and-mortar building thanks to a Kickstarter campaign. Serving up accomplished all-day fare and now also dinner: “excellent cocktails to start are followed by great food based on local and seasonal ingredients”.

Reviewed 1 months, 28 days ago

"The menu always varies to suit the season, available ingredients and the chef’s inspiration and you can always guarantee something a bit different or unusual ( on our most recent visit the starters included Cheese & Sauerkraut Doughnuts and Beetroot Borani with Walnuts; main courses included Pan Fried Hake & Sag Aloo with Curried Mussel Sauce). Imaginative and generous particularly considering the price point"
