The long-awaited list of restaurants that have won Michelin stars this year has been released, with 25 new eateries across the UK and Ireland awarded stars.
Sadly no restaurants in Newcastle have received stars in the 2022 list, however the city is already home to a Michelin starred restaurant and two Bib Gourmand establishments. The Bib Gourmand award honours restaurants that serve great food, but at reasonable prices.
So which of Newcastle’s restaurants owns a coveted star - and are there any new Michelin starred restaurants within driving distance of the city?
Which restaurants in Newcastle have Michelin stars?
House of Tides

This Newcastle staple was included in the Michelin guide for retaining its one star accolade in the 2022 list. Set within a merchant’s house on the historic quayside, chef Kenny Atkinson reportedly fell in love with the place when he first saw it.
The Michelin Guide states: “Accomplished, creative dishes evolve as ingredients come into season, with only top quality produce being used. The attractively presented dishes are well-thought-out and flavours have plenty of depth – and there’s the occasional playful touch in evidence too.”
Customers can enjoy House of Tides’ lunch menu for £85 per person, or £110 for the dinner menu.
The establishment is open Wednesday to Friday, 12pm - 1:15pm, and 6 - 8:30pm, and Saturday 12 - 1:15pm, and 5pm - 8:30pm.
