Jesmond Dene House

Jesmond Dene Road, Newcastle upon Tyne, Tyne and Wear, NE2 2EY
Find this grand gothic house overlooking the wooded valley of Jesmond Dene.
Originally dating from the 1820’s, when it was the home of Lord Armstrong, it now houses both a comfortable hotel & excellent restaurant – one of the best in the area.
The two dining areas are formal – the old music room, with delicate plasterwork; and an airy conservatory – but both share the same seasonal menu. Local fish and seasonal game figure prominently; and provenance to the main ingredients are shown throughout.
The kitchen, under the leadership of Michael Penaluna, uses carefully sourced seasonal ingredients – and many of these are given provenance on their menu’s.
During the evening and autumn menu brought the likes of 'Vegetable Salad with Fresh Herbs, Black Truffle' with a Sorrel Emulsion’; 'Hand-Dived Scallops with Crispy Pork Belly, Puy Lentils & Pedro Ximenez' and 'Creel-Caught Langoustines with Artichoke Bavarois, Roasted Chestnuts & Apple' amongst the starters.
Perhaps 'Wild Turbot with Mussels, Young Leeks, Black Truffle & Heritage Potatoes’ ; 'Tim Oliver’s Belted Galloway Beef Fillet with Bone Marrow & Parsley Crust, Beetroots & Swiss Chard’; ‘Pecorino Mille Feuille with Carrot & Lavender Purée, Fresh Vegeables & Chaterelles’ and 'Local Partridge Breast & Confit Leg, with Sweetcorn, Caramelised Onion & Bitter Peanut Praline' to follow.
Finish with 'Chocolate Sponge with Griottine Cherries & Yoghurt Ice Cream'; 'Roast Plum Sablé Breton with Szechuan Pepper Espuma & Vanilla Ice Cream' or their excellent selection of local and French cheeses.
Professional but friendly service.
