Dobson & Parnell
Situated on Newcastle’s vibrant Quayside, Dobson & Parnell offers an exciting British and European fine dining menu at an impressively reasonable price, which has earned it a coveted place in The Michelin Guide. 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 seared sashimigrade tuna with togarashi seasoning and puffed wild rice; roast pigeon breast with duck liver parfait, charred sweetcorn, apple and chervil; and rare-breed pork chop with spiced tabbouleh. To finish, try the delicious peanut butter and blackcurrant jam ice cream sandwich.
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 restaurant offers an excellent-value lunch and early-evening set menu as well as an impressive à la carte. For a culinary adventure, the five- and seven-course tasting menus with wine to match are some of the best in Newcastle. There’s a delightful kid’s menu and a sumptuous Sunday lunch is served from noon until 4pm – perfect before or after a stroll along Newcastle’s Quayside, or a visit to Sage Gateshead. The restaurant holds regular wine dinners and ladies' lunches – check their website for more details or join the Whole Hog Food Club to receive exclusive monthly offers.
