Review on House of Tides

Michelin-starred Kenny Atkinson has opened his first stand alone restaurant, located on the historic Newcastle quayside in the shadows of the iconic Tyne Bridge and the old city wall. Set over two floors of a five-storey listed former merchant's house originally known at Buttress House, it can trace its history back to the 16th Century. The interiors have been lovingly refurbished with many of the original features such as the flagstone flooring, exposed brick walls and wooden beams being retained. The main restaurant is on the first floor, tables are simply laid set on stripped wood flooring and interesting artwork displayed on the cream walls.

Kenny's cooking has received many awards and plaudits over the years and his highly impassioned cuisine based around keenly sourced local and seasonal ingredients, has already got the hearts of foodies racing. He has created an eight course menu that takes diners on a journey showcasing the very best local and British produce. Typical dishes that appear are butternut squash, pork, chestnut mushrooms, sage; mackerel, sand carrots, fennel, orange, smoked eel; sea bass, Shetland mussels, coriander, curry; duck, beetroot, parsnips, hazelnuts; beef, pease pudding, celeriac, smoked bacon; rhubarb, cream cheese, ginger, vanilla; dark chocolate, pear, red wine, pistachio, meringue and finishing with cheese, fig and crackers.

At House of Tides they aim to create a memorable dining experience for their guests within a friendly and relaxed ambience, and it is certainly proving to be a winning formula as the restaurant was awarded a prestigious Michelin star in the 2016 edition of the Guide.
