Jesmond Dene House has unveiled the new look of its restaurant after a recent refurbishment.
The privately-owned property in Newcastle has given its 3 AA Rosette restaurant a refresh and introduced a new menu, marking the second year of operating under the direction of head chef Danny Parker.
The Arts and Crafts property used local interior design Karen Walker for the project, who has previously worked with the hotel.
She comments: “The verdant garden at Jesmond Dene House has been instrumental in the new design and the aim was to provide a much lighter ambience with hints of rich colour that connect with the outside view. The new furniture and finishes retain the luxurious level that guests expect at Jesmond Dene House but the use of colour, pattern and light provides a more contemporary setting.”
Head chef Parker says he has ‘mixed up the style’ of the cuisine at Jesmond Dene House for the new menu, listening to guest feedback and the kitchen team to create the menu which is ‘ingredient-led’ with ‘generous dishes’.
The private dining rooms have also been refurbished.
Parker says: “We want for as many people to enjoy our food, our Geordie hospitality, and of course, our beautiful hotel and gardens. I am really dedicated to training and want to see our team grow. We want to show Newcastle and beyond what Jesmond Dene House is all about.”
Managing director, Peter Candler explains: “The food will be about generosity, quality and consistency when it comes to preparation. Dishes will be of the highest quality and accessible at the same time. I’ve tried his new menu and I’m very excited!”
