Our three AA rosette restaurant is open to all diners, both non-resident as well as those guests staying with us.
We serve from breakfast through to dinner and our menus focus on simple dishes, done well; nothing tricksy, just honest flavours, locally sourced produce and plenty of attention to detail.
SOME SAY, IT’S THE MOST IMPORTANT MEAL OF THE DAY. CERTAINLY, WE MAKE SURE THERE’S ENOUGH CHOICE TO GET YOU OFF TO A CRACKING START.
Home-baked pastries, fruit compote, eggs any which way, a full English, smoked salmon – or just coffee and croissants. You choose.
And you don’t have to stay overnight to enjoy our breakfasts. It’s a great way to fit in a business meeting, and still have the rest of the day free.
Monday - Friday: 7.00am - 10.00am
Saturday - Sunday: 7.30am - 10.30am
LUNCH AND DINNER
OUR NEW SEASONALLY-CHANGING A LA CARTE MENU HAS BOTH WELL-LOVED FAVOURITES AND FRESH NEW IDEAS. SERVED IN THE RESTAURANT FOR A MORE FORMAL SETTING BUT ALSO THE COCKTAIL BAR AND BILLIARD ROOMS FOR A MORE RELAXED, INFORMAL ENVIRONMENT.
Our new A la Carte menu offers a wide range of fresh, light and tempting dishes allowing you the flexibility to eat as little or as much as you like. Driven by the seasons, and using the freshest of ingredients, Executive Head Chef, Michael Penaluna, and his team use classic techniques but with a contemporary approach to produce exciting Modern British dishes.
Our afternoon teas are all about indulgence: finger sandwiches, sausage rolls and melt-in-your-mouth quiche, three types of scone – plus clotted cream, of course – home-made jams, and a gorgeous selection of wicked cakes. We aim to serve one of the best afternoon teas in Newcastle – maybe the North East! Something to celebrate? We offer a Champagne afternoon tea or, for something deliciously different add a glass of alcoholic tea from Noveltea or a Cocktail from our summer list.
Choose a sofa in the Cocktail Bar or Billiard Room, a table in the Garden Room or, if the sun is shining, a table on the terrace. If you want an afternoon tea party for a group of people, that’s fine; just let us know.
Or just enjoy a cup of tea (over a dozen to choose from) and something sweet.
Booking recommended, although we will do our best to squeeze you in.
Monday - Saturday: 12.00pm - 4.30pm
Sunday: 3.00pm - 5.00pm
