About Vallum Restaurant & Chef's Room
Join us at Vallum and savour the produce of land once trod by the Roman auxiliaries who lived here in the shadow of Hadrian’s Wall. They would be familiar with the traditions of our artisan producers, and we hope that they, like you, would enjoy the award-winning ice cream and cheese handmade here at Vallum Little Dairy, our herbs, flowers and vegetables grown in Vallum Kitchen Garden, and the artisan breads, patisserie and pies made in the Vallum Bakery.
Our visitors also enjoy Vallum’s wildlife walks and our outdoor play paddock, while events including foodie fairs and markets, restaurant pop-ups and chef special appearances bring visitors from miles around. You are more than welcome to watch our growing community of artisans at work, taste their produce in our Restaurant and Tea Room, and purchase their goods at our Patisserie and Deli. Welcome to Vallum, enjoy the many tastes of Hadrian’s Wall country.
We rarely do Sunday lunch, but given the unusual Bank Holiday sunshine we opted to return to Vallum for the first time in ages. Far from your standard fayre; obviously a bit of thought / care put into things, from the beef sourced from across the field (okay a few fields) at North Acomb, to the veg grown on site. Service was attentive without too much "how are you starters/mains/desserts" which constitutes 'service' all too often now. We had the obligatory 'please vacate your table by' on the confirmation e-mail (again another sensible touch) but never felt pressured, to the point we were there for nearly four hours... Probably best summed up by "quality rather than quantity".
We could not fault the food at all, it was absolutely delicious. The staff were extremely friendly and helpful, we had coffees at end of meal, however two lattes were extremely different in colour and taste.....also our empty plates sat for quite some time before being cleared away and that is really the only negative thing I can point out. I would thoroughly recommend The Vallum and I certainly will do.
The service was really great and we loved the fact that it was a smaller dining area which gave it a feeling of intimacy. One of the best Sunday dinners we have ever had. Have already recommended it to friends.
The food was absolutely fantastic. The staff were all very friendly and helpful however the service was not as fast as expected. Having said that it was a lovely atmosphere in the restaurant so staying longer was a pleasure.
Most delicious beef! Great service..everything very fresh. 100% will return.
Amazing Sunday lunch, best I’ve ever had.
Really lovely food and spectacular view!
Brilliant all round
Excellent food, lovely attentive service from a friendly team - we love coming to Vallum - keep up the brilliant work!
Excellent food and service! I have a few food intolerances which were dealt with professionally and patiently. We will definitely be back! My mum was also so very touched with the plant you gave her for Mothers Day. 😊
Sent my partner on a mission to find the best Sunday Roast in Newcastle and was not disappointed! We've been back 2 more times since and brought family with us, and everyone has loved it! Food is gorgeous and the staff go above and beyond to help you!
Beautifully presented, high quality plates of food. Mother's Day flower pots for Mums were a lovely touch.
Having visited for the first time Sunday we were delighted with the all of the food- the chocolate brownie was AMAZING! We scored 4 on the service as we did have to wait a very long time for the starters and felt a little forgotten about. But overall all of the waiting staff were very friendly and approachable. We will definitely be back! :-)
This is a lovely location, we had Sunday lunch, food was good service was excellent, we were in a bit of a hurry as we needed to get to the airport but the staff were very obliging, I will be going again and make sure that I have plenty of time to fully enjoy the meal and atmosphere.
A good experience as usual with a friendly service only marred by the chefs room being cold when the log burner died down without the staff keeping it well stocked with logs until we pointed it out
Lovely place, great food, fast and friendly service
Had Sunday lunch was really high standard
Sunday lunch tasted delicious - beautifully cooked. Really cannot wait to return.
I've honestly never tasted beef like it, just amazing, I would have loved a choice of a mocktail though as I didn't not drink alcohol and a Mocktail makes dinning out feel a bit more special. Service was outstanding, can't wait to go back!
Lovely food Desert helping possibly too large!
Lovely Sunday lunch with good service however door into restaurant was wedged open allowing a draught into the restaurant. However this was closed on request.
Lovely Sunday lunch in the Chefs room , Gorgeous cosy fire too , Thank you so much Sally Thompson
