Sourcing from local suppliers within a thirty-mile radius and from estate grown produce from the edible garden, The Glass House Restaurant at Wynyard Hall has collaborated with the best suppliers in the region to create plates featuring sustainable cod, slow cooked beef cheek and garden caramelised cauliflower.

The plot-to-plate offerings are fresh, seasonal and provide an authentic taste sensation. Guests can enjoy a relaxed dining atmosphere with panoramic views over the kitchen garden or sit by the fire on wintery afternoons and enjoy one of the restaurants English wines which are perfectly paired with seasonal small plates.

The restaurant, located on the grounds of the former home of the Marquess of Londonderry, looks onto the gardens which gives guests the opportunity to see exactly where the vegetables they are eating come from and form part of a wonderful plot-to-plate relaxed dining experience at The Glass House. Diners can see everything from carrots and beetroot to herbs and to the less well-known ingredients such as Oxalis and Micro Kale.

The restaurant also boasts something a little more intimate. The eight-seater private dining area at the Glass House is ideal for those extra special occasions such as birthdays and anniversaries. It also provides the perfect spot for an exclusive meeting.

The Glass House, has already proved to be a hit with the local community, attracting both residents and guests from further afield throughout the region since 2021. The venue continues to impress customers thanks to its refreshing dining concept.

Executive Head Chef, Marc Lomas said “It’s important for us to mention the history when we curate dishes. While it’s great that we source all of our produce locally, it’s important for us that we highlight the origins, feel and embrace the culture and history of why we have a plot-to-plate restaurant. The grounds in which the ingredients are grown tell a story of its own, having once already been a kitchen garden to the Londonderry family, it is a great privilege to continue that story into the menu we offer today and allows you to appreciate the food you are eating a little more in the relaxed dining experience at The Glass House.”
