AA Rosette-awarded Brunel’s Northern Ireland comes from one of the UK’s most adventurous chefs. In the shadow of the Mountains of Mourne, the location is echoed in the chef’s passion for foraged food.

Brunel’s restaurant menu focuses on seasonal produce, with dishes changing accordingly. Highlights include smoked venison carpaccio with salt-baked beets, pickled blackberries, liquorice and wood sorrel, which emphasise the use of earthy, natural ingredients. Try dishes like the pan-seared wood pigeon breast and pastille with salt-baked celeriac and beetroot, cocoa nibs, dandelion root and blackberry gel.

Puddings are just as innovative, featuring locally foraged sea buckthorn curd with rosehip syrup, pumpkin seed and brown butter granola, lemon thyme and fennel meringue. Inventive cocktails might include ingredients such as pumpkin jam or feature smoke and glitter.

The intimate and relaxed setting with rough-hewn tables and chairs enhances the experience and the candlelit dinners are perfect for a peaceful, romantic fine-dining experience. Brunel’s, Newcastle is a 12-minute walk from Ulsterbus Station.
