“A great addition to the Northumberland food scene…”, “their recent Michelin star is well-deserved…”, “such a unique place to dine”… just a few of the paeans directed at chef Alex Nietosvuori’s Scandi-themed two-year-old, where even those with high hopes were “blown away” by the “incredible, precise, beautiful cooking” that “really showcases the wonderful local produce the chef is using” (and comes in elaborate 15-18 course servings). The “unusual and largely biodynamic wine list curated by sommelier Anna Frost” also merits diners' attention.

Run by Swedish chef Alex Nietosvuori (‘Hjem’ means ‘home’ in both the local Northumbrian and some Scandinavian dialects) – this May 2019 yearling opened just as the survey was concluding. With 24 seats, the aim is to deliver Scandi-inspired cuisine via either a six-course or 12-course tasting menu. Some initial adulatory press reviews suggest that visitors to Hadrian’s Wall at last have a foodie stop-off as a competing attraction.

For 31 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).
