Overnight guests at a Michelin star restaurant in Northumberland are being invited to make their visit even more of a treat.

Diners who make the most of their time at Restaurant Hjem by staying overnight can now book one of three purpose-built luxury lodges.

Fine food lovers from all over the North East and beyond often book a room alongside a seat at the table for head chef Alex Nietosvuori’s attention-grabbing 12-course tasting menu.

As well as allowing them to take advantage of the exquisite wine pairing options on offer, staying overnight also means guests can enjoy a delicious breakfast, brimming with locally-sourced produce, which is also prepared by Alex and his team.

Now, in addition to the 11 ensuite bedrooms in the main building, guests now have the option of spending the night in one of a trio of executive lodges, located opposite Restaurant Hjem in the village of Wall and boasting the same picturesque views of the surrounding Northumbrian countryside.

The three dwellings feature a double bed, seating area, ensuite bathroom and minibar, which comes complete with some liquid treats.

Lodge guests who want to have a more leisurely morning can also choose to have breakfast delivered to their door.

Ally Thompson, general manager at Hjem, said the new overnight options are already proving very popular.

“So many of our guests choose to book dinner, bed and breakfast when they’re planning their visit to Hjem and the addition of the three lodges has meant even more of them can do so.

“We’ve been delighted with the response to the new rooms. which have been built and furnished to offer guests the opportunity to relax in style and comfort before and after their evening at Hjem.”

Restaurant Hjem serves a tasting menu for £120; with wine and juice pairing options. Dinner B&B packages start at £360 for two guests sharing a room. To find out more visit www.restauranthjem.co.uk.
