Absolutely beautiful treehouse, very pretty surroundings, looks magical with all the fairy lights. Service here is excellent, at first I was disappointed to find it fully booked for New Year's Day but they emailed me when I had a cancellation even though I didn't request that, so was pleasantly surprised! There was nothing that was too much trouble for the... More

Lovely New Year special meal in a magical setting. Service exceptional - friendly and warm and not obtrusive. Food lovely and tasty. Advice: ask for a cushion.

We were on vacation for Christmas with family and managed to get a booking at short notice, although this is no normally the case. MUST book in advance. Well worth the high price for such an amazing atmosphere. The beautiful back drop to a magically enchanting Christmas meal.

Love eating here each Christmas. It's a wonderful building and setting - quite magical - with a good menu and proper food portions. Service is friendly, helpful and efficient. At busy times, there can be a little wait for table although it's a pleasure to prolong the stay with a pre-prandial drink in 'the potting shed'!

This is truly a unique experience. I've never eaten in a tree house before! You just don't know what to expect! What you get is a lovely cosy array of seats and tables of beautifully finished natural wood. The food selection is good and right for hearty appetites!

Menu is TERRIBLE. 6 Mains... 1/3 of the menu is fish 1/3 of the menu is Vegetarian... Only 2 dishes left for normal tastes... Oh and they were terrible. Literally couldn't find anything any of us would order. We have the most wide ranging tastes, but this menu is the worst and least inclusive menu I have ever looked at!... More

Went here with the kids for a extra Christmas treat. They can't wait to go back. I would recommend going on a night because it's beautiful in the dark. Food was awesome. Deserts are 5* mmmmm. Thank you will be coming back soon.

Great location, food good though not brilliant. Might be in the main restaurant we ate in the smaller one. Don't forget to walk around the treehouse, it's great.

Description
The Treehouse is one of the most magical and unique restaurants to be found anywhere in the world. It’s high up in the treetops, with a roaring log fire in the centre of the room and trees growing through the floor. Most importantly, the locally-inspired food is delicious. Always featuring local fish and seafood, meats from Northumberland’s farmlands and other regional specialities, the Treehouse Restaurant menus highlight local quality, taste and change throughout the seasons. There’s a great wine list, a good range of beers and regular live music. For a family dining experience that you’ll all enjoy, a great night out with friends or a romantic dinner for two, there’s nowhere quite like it. We always recommend booking ahead for lunch or dinner.
