I never really venture to Jesmond and I'm not too sure why. I'm only around 20 minutes from Newcastle and after this trip to Jesmond Dene House, I really want to go back for a walk around the dene, followed by afternoon tea, or perhaps more lobster ravioli!
Jesmond Dene House is a luxury restaurant and hotel located in Jesmond, just outside of Newcastle. Set withinwoodland grounds, the 19th century building is very popular, not only for meals, but as a wedding venue it seems too. Being seated in the conservatory looking out across the terrace to the gardens meant we had front row seats to see wedding guests posing for photos. The bride looked lovely and children running wild provided some entertainment between courses.
The food was amazing! We both opted for lobster ravioli, samphire, iberico ham and bisque as a starter. It was a great size and I could've happily eaten more as my main course, it was that good! It was my first time trying lobster and it definitely won't be the last. The presentation of the dishes and attentive staff really make Jesmond Dene House stand out.
