Dobson & Parnell
Dobson & Parnell offers an exciting British and European menu on Newcastle’s vibrant Quayside. The restaurant was named after the architects who designed the building, and the interior combines Victorian elegance with old-school glamour. On the menu you’ll find dishes including pan-fried black cod, charred broccoli, smoked almonds, brown shrimp and polenta, and rare-breed pork with salt-baked pineapple, Darling Blue cheese and creamy mash. For dessert, you might wish to try the Yorkshire rhubarb with ricotta, or the dark chocolate with fudge, salted caramel and peanut butter.
Chef-patron Troy Terrington, formerly head chef of Dobson & Parnell’s sister restaurant Blackfriars, is one of a new cohort of talented young chefs in the area. The 65-seat restaurant offers an excellent-value set menu of three courses for £19 at lunchtime or £25 for dinner. For those with more adventurous tastes, a seven-course tasting menu with wine to match is served every Tuesday to Saturday from 5.30pm. On the first Wednesday of every month, the restaurant holds its popular Bring Your Best Wine night, where you can bring your own bottle to enjoy while you dine. A sumptuous Sunday lunch is served from noon until 4pm, and children eat free when they dine with an adult – perfect before or after a stroll along Newcastle’s quayside, or a visiting the Baltic Centre for Contemporary Art or Sage Gateshead. If you’re looking for a memorable culinary experience in Newcastle, Dobson & Parnell is a must-visit.
