Squaremeal Review of House of Tides ?

With a Michelin star in the bank, business is booming at the House of Tides, and big-name North Country chef/proprietor Kenny Atkinson has extended the interiors of this Grade I-listed merchant’s residence on Newcastle’s humming Quayside. Drinks are still served in the flagstoned bar, while the main dining space occupies the first floor: above this is a new pastry bar and private dining area, with a walk-in wine cellar at the very top of the building. It’s “excellent in every way”, says a fan. There’s a choice of menus, although innovative user-friendly food is the bottom line, with an emphatic modern British accent and some “fabulous” rustic notes – from mackerel with artichoke and blackberry or butternut squash with bacon and truffle to venison tartare with beetroot, blackberries and kale or lamb with broccoli, tomato and radish. After that, expect a sting in the tail from the likes of pear with almond and ginger or an assemblage of raspberry, lemon and pine nuts. “I’m dying to go back”, confesses one convert.

A regular re-returner

by   bronze reviewer (6)

Dec 2016

I come here whenever I come back to Newcastle, which isn't often enough as far as my parents are concerned, but usually two or three times a year and I always book a table. This was my second visit this year, I've been tardy I admit, and it was exactly what I've expect. I actually dined here alone ass my friend wasn't able to make it last minute, though it's not really his thing anyway. Initially nervous and skeptical about dining at a Michelin star restaurant alone was dispelled...

It could persuade me to move to the North east...

by   gold reviewer (41)

Dec 2015

Editor's pick My boyfriend is from Newcastle, we live and met in London. I've always made it very clear that there isn't much that would make me move away from my beloved London. But on a recent visit to see his family in Newcastle I found a reason to consider moving to the North East. House of Tides is that good, seriously. I don't really know where to start. I was sold from the word go - the gorgeous converted building, the rustic feel and riverside location are gorgeous. The greeting was warm...

Kenny Atkinson

Hard graft and some lucky breaks have taken Geordie Kenny Atkinson from market stall to Michelin star holder. His first gong came at St Martin’s on the Isle on the Scilly Isles, with a similar award at Seaham Hall in 2009. As a last-minute sub, he took the starter course in Great British Menu in 2009, returning the following year to win the fish stage. In 2014, he opened House of Tides in Newcastle.
