Dobson & Parnell is one of Newcastle’s newest fine dining experiences, and is currently part of the bi-annual NE1 Newcastle Restaurant week. The Dobson & Parnell building itself was designed by famous local architect John Dobson. You might recognise the name, he designed some of the iconic areas of Newcastle such as Eldon Square, the Grainger market and Central Station. John Dobson street is also a great place to get caught by VERY poorly signed bus lane cameras! William Parnell makes up the other half of the restaurants name, another architect with buildings such as the Tyne Theatre in his portfolio. Together they make Dobson & Parnell, located on Queen Street, which is very appropriate given that it’s so close to another of the cities architectural masterpieces – the Tyne Bridge.
