House of Tides

Posted by Archie 31/03/2016 0 Comment(s)

When we were first contacted by Abbie Atkinson about participating in the launch of a new restaurant to be opened on Newcastle Quayside we were excited to be part of the development of a unique dining experience.

Abbie has a natural flair for interior design and wanted us to supply a range of paintings by North East artists that would contribute to the ambiance of their luxury restaurant.

Kenny and Abbie opened their restaurant, House of Tides, on the historical Newcastle Quayside in February 2014. The restaurant, set within the beautifully restored Grade 1 listed 16th Century former merchant’s town house, is located just a stone’s throw away from the iconic Tyne Bridge and is the only Michelin starred restaurant in Newcastle.

House of Tides is a 60 cover restaurant which is set over two floors. The rustic ground floor entrance level, with its original 16th century flagstones, provides an excellent venue for a pre-meal drink. The first floor, which houses the main restaurant seating area, has exposed beams and big open fireplace.

Kenny and Abbie’s vision for House of Tides was to create a casual and informal space where everybody could feel comfortable and relaxed with no compromise on quality. They both believe in supporting local suppliers and the Art in their restaurant continues with that belief.

Bridekirk were proud to be asked to supply prints by local artists that contribute to the ambiance of the restaurant. All these prints and more can be purchased from the Bridekirk website:

For the rustic ground floor, Abbie chose Malcolm Teasdale prints of local mining and shipbuilding scenes, based on the North East’s industrial heritage. More recently we have added a new print by local artist Peter Davidson which is a quirk take on Newcastle Quayside and actually features part of the frontage of the House of Tides building.
In the upstairs restaurant we have prints from eminent local artists Anthony Marshall, Roy Francis Kirton, Alan Smith Page and photographer Paul Wright
all were chosen to reflect the beauty of North East England and the wonderful setting of House of Tides
