Food excellent, service excellent.
Fantastic food and service! Really enjoyed the 7 course tasting menu, and staff went out of their way to accommodate us. Would definitely recommend!
First time diners, we had the 7 course tasting menu with wine pairing. Absolutely delicious! Stand outs for me were the halibut and scallop dishes, plus the excellent mise en bouche little starters. The main beef was not my favourite, but my husband really enjoyed it so it’s just a matter of taste. All the dishes were just the right size and seasoned really well. Our server/sommelier Angela was excellent at explaining the wines and we tried some really unusual varieties we would never normally choose. We felt the meal was very good value.
Great food, service and surroundings.
Highly recommended if you’re looking for a great dining experience.
We had the taster menu with wine pairing it was beautiful. Food was presented lovely and tasted great. Wine complimented each course, staff were very informative and knowledgeable about the produce and wine. The atmosphere was great and service could not be faltered.
We came to Dobson and Parnell for a post graduation meal and it was absolutely fantastic! Wonderful food and exceptional service. We will definitely be returning.
We had the tasting menu and we thoroughly enjoyed the experience and ambience.
Had the 7 course taster menu this time - it was fabulous. Some things on the menu I would have not have chosen to eat but I have been converted. Loved the food and as always excellent service

What a fantastic find. Can’t recommend this place enough. Food and service was excellent.
Spoke to Chris prior to arrival to change reservation times and couldn’t have been more helpful.
We will be back 👍
Fantastic, relaxing atmosphere and delicious food. Accommodating to children too which was very helpful. Great team who were very attentive. Thank you for a lovely, enjoyable evening.
Excellent food and service. A must go restaurant in Newcastle
We both agreed it was the best meal we have ever had! We had the 5 course tasting menu with matched wines and didn’t want each course to end! Also every server was very attentive and made sure to describe exactly what we had along with David who would always give a description of each wine and how it paired with the course. Would definitely recommend!
Went for lunch and ate from the set menu - I had 2 courses and my husband had 3 - each course was delicious and we took advantage of the wine pairings which was great as he had fish and I had duck - it was great value for a lovely meal - we will definitely be back
Lovely food and fantastic service. Every course introduced and explained. Thoroughly recommended.
Excellent food and service. Will definitely be back!

Excellent ambiance and staff were so polite and welcoming. They were very on the ball with any allergy requirements that had been mentioned when making the table booking.

A pleasant and intimate restaurant with a high standard of fine dining.The staff are competent and attentive, they are knowledgeable about food, wine and cocktails.
Such a beautiful setting with incredible food! Service was amazing. Cannot fault anything.
Great food, great service from well trained knowledgable staff
We had a tasting menu with wine matching and both the food and wines were superb. We were very impressed that they were able to provide a pescatarian menu for 2 of the party.
The service from all staff was excellent - very friendly, helpful and knowledgeable.
We had a banquette table which was great for a meal with friends.
Overall - an outstanding place!
A lovely meal out with older family members who haven't been able to visit us since March 2020. Interesting menu, beautifully presented. The booth in the window was perfect for us to chat and celebrate a list of missed birthdays and anniversaries.
Was very excited to be booked as a treat to pay a visit to Dobson and Parnell however what was served was disappointing and surprised it was allowed to leave the pass
We had the seven course tasting menu and the selection of cheeses. We picked 3 bottles of wine ourselves. All the dishes were beautifully presented. The Yorkshire Pea tart was a little underwhelming. The Scallop, BBQ Halibut and Beef fillet plates were the highlights. We had some debate about whether the vintage of the wine on the menu should match that of the bottle brought to our table resulting in a modest discount.
Overall its lovely food in a nice atmosphere but it probably falls short of being a truly stand out experience.
Our evening was wonderful. We had the tasting menu. The food and wine was excellent and the staff so friendly and very efficient.
Celebrated our 30th wedding anniversary with family. We had a fabulous time. We had the tasting menu with wine pairing. The food was wonderful, the drinks matched with the food so well. The service was excellent and our main waiter could not have been more attentive or professional. An all round excellent experience.
Really great food
A proper treat! Delicious tasting menu - courses brought out a really relaxed pace. Genuine, friendly staff.
Absolute must if you want a special meal in Newcastle!
Everything was beautifully presented. The staff were incredibly kind and helpful. The food was excellent and my partner and I had fabulous time.
