For our pre-Christmas meal for two, we wanted a relaxing few hours before the rush began! We loved everything from the friendly greeting to the excellent service and lovely surroundings. As a vegetarian, it was hard to choose between several really tempting starters, and also...More

Wanting to avoid the Christmas party madness in town we booked here - the menu was VERY limited for a vegetarian, the extra charge for a dish not on the TDH menu was a bit much with that in mind. Service was ok, food bland...More

I persuaded my 3 dinner friends to venture further afield than The Grand hotel Tynemouth for our Christmas get together this year. I wish I hadn’t bothered. Two out of four fillet steaks were poor and the service was equally poor - the restaurant was...More

We ate in the restaurant and my wife had the fish and chips which was very good, I had the fillet steak with red wine jus and it was excellent. Would recommend for a special meal not cheap but good food and service.

We had a lovely lunch as a celebration. The starters were original, the main course well prepared and the sweets a finale. Portions were large and presentation good. Our only disappointment was the arrival of Yorkshire puddings with every meat. They should stay with beef!...More

HI, No, we don't have a dress code in the restaurant. Guests normally dress in smart / casual, so dressy trousers won't be inappropriate. Regards, Nick

Our award-winning Restaurant (two AA Rosettes) is based on simple but firm principles. We start with the best ingredients we can find, preferably local (some from the hotel garden), and we believe taste is more important than style. Our Head Chef, Michael Penaluna, and his team, make it their business to get to know our suppliers, then use their skills to produce dishes that enhance rather than confuse the flavours. Classic techniques but a contemporary approach to produce Modern British dishes that are light, fresh, flavoursome. Whether you fancy our breakfast which is bigger, tastier and healthier than ever, great value Lunch Menu, House Menu Dinner Menu, you'll find an atmosphere that's warm, relaxed and friendly. Our Restaurant has two dining areas: the former music room with earthy tones and fun splashes or orange and the light and leafy Garden Room with its summer terrace.
