Unfortunately we have been forced to close the restaurant because of a number of issues affecting the property, primarily an unavoidable engineering problem in the kitchen.
In the meantime we have been in discussions with a group of investors and are likely to undertake a vital small refurbishment and rebranding.
The restaurant will be closed for most of May
- and until further notice -
Consequently we have had to cancel all bookings during the intervening period, but will reshedule once we have a clearer timetable for completion of the works.
We apologise for the inconvenience this causes customers, but in the circumstances this is unavoidable. The works and improvements will be in the beneficial interests of the community, customers, and the business.
If you have any questions please contact us by email on as our telephone is presently unmanned.
With our sincerest apologies

Excellent Dining in Jesmond Dene
Welcome to Fisherman's Lodge, one of Newcastle's closely guarded secrets. For 39 years Fisherman's Lodge has been a noted restaurant in the North-East region. Our aim is to provide outstanding food in a warm and friendly environment, giving our diners an experience to remember.
We pride ourselves on remaining one of the North-East's most charming venues. We have always been primarily a seafood restaurant, but we also serve a range of Modern British dishes using locally supplied organic meat and vegetables. The local beef and lamb reared in Northumbria are amongst the finest in Europe. But apart from the fresh fish and meats, we also have access to the abundance of game which the local region is famous for. We like to cater for everybody and therefore every menu we produce has vegetarian options. We can also accommodate most special dietary requirements provided you let us know.
You will find us deep in the leafy wooded glade that is Jesmond Dene, set beside the gushing Ouseburn stream. A secluded oasis of rare trees planted by the noble Lord Armstrong some 150 years ago, but still only five minutes' drive from the throbbing heart of urban Newcastle.
You will find our sustainable seafood & fish policy on the "Restaurant" page
We are excited to announce that we are now opening the doors at Fisherman's Lodge during the day, with a new daytime menu with bar snacks and an array of light dishes (mostly under £10) from 12 noon until 5pm. This and refreshments of all sorts will be served in the Lounge/Bar and in the dining room. You do not need to book and we welcome customers to walk in. We are installing draught beer in the downstairs bar which will be available at pub prices. A perfect opportunity to relax after a stroll through the Dene!
Calling the Restaurant
It is best to call the restaurant between 11am and 8pm. Please bear in mind that at certain times the restaurant becomes very busy and it is not always easy to answer every call. Also we receive a high volume of calls at times. Please persist or leave a message. You can also email us on email@example.com. which is sometimes best. (please leave a contact no. and full details.)
