JDH Restaurant at Work
Our award-winning Restaurant (three AA Rosettes) in Newcastle is based on simple but firm principles. We start with the best ingredients we can find, preferably local (some from the hotel garden), and we believe taste is more important than style.
Our Head Chef, Michael Penaluna, and his team, make it their business to get to know our suppliers, then use their skills to produce dishes that enhance rather than confuse the flavours. Classic techniques but a contemporary approach to produce Modern British dishes that are light, fresh, flavoursome.
At our Newcastle hotel, we don't believe in rules and formality; we do believe in ensuring you have a good time. Whether you fancy our locally sourced Lunch Menu, Sunday lunch with the family, an informal supper from the House Menu or leisurely Dinner Menu, you'll find an atmosphere that's warm, relaxed and friendly.
Our Restaurant has two dining areas: the former music room with earthy tones and fun splashes of orange beneath the original plasterwork ceiling, and the light and leafy Garden Room with its summer terrace.
We're open every day, breakfast through to dinner, to non-residents as well as hotel guests.
