Menu of the Moment at House of Tides Chef’s Table

Bold and Imaginative Cooking - Michelin Star in the Bag! 

Located on the historic Newcastle Quayside and just a stone’s throw away from the iconic Tyne Bridge, House of Tides is a 50 cover restaurant, set over two floors in a recently restored Grade 1 listed 16th Century former merchant’s town house. It is also the proud holder of three AA Rosettes.  

The rustic ground floor entrance level with its 16th century flagstones, provides an excellent venue for a pre-dinner drink or two. The first floor, which houses the main restaurant seating area has exposed original wood beams and provides the more relaxed and casual setting for your meal.

Within its first year, the restaurant was awarded best newcomer and North East restaurant of the year, voted by Secret Diner.
