Avant-garde brasserie cooking for the Jesmond set

AA Inspector

At a glance

Tasting menu
Wines by the glass
Wheelchair access

In the fashionable Jesmond district of Newcastle, this is a thoroughly 21st-century place, with bare-wood floor and brick walls offset by kooky decorative touches. Bag a table on the mezzanine floor for views of the kitchen pass and the folks below. The menus deal in avant-garde brasserie food with a rumbustious edge. Try pulled braised lamb shoulder with turnip 'spaghetti' and salsa verde, a preamble to a main dish of chicken pie and halibut fillet, sharing the same plate alongside variously treated mushrooms and some satiny mash. High-octane dark chocolate tart is lifted out of the ordinary by its accompaniments of cinder toffee, popcorn and linseed cream.
