Say hello to our new Head Chef!


As reported in the Chronicle, River Café on the Tyne in North Shields now has a familiar TV face on its team!

A Masterchef: The Professionals 2013 semi-finalist has joined the team at River Café on the Tyne in North Shields.

David Garlinge has more than 10 years experience in the restaurant industry.

He was a semi-finalist in Masterchef: The Professionals 2013, as well as having worked with notable chefs including Gordon Ramsay and Jason Atherton at Maze and Pollen Street Social in London, North East favourites The Raby Hunt and The Orangery at Rockcliffe Hall, and most recently Houndgate Townhouse in Darlington.

“I was looking for a new challenge and River Café on the Tyne appealed to me – not just because of the fact that they are a four-times Michelin Bib Gourmand Award winning restaurant or because of their stunning location looking out over the mouth of the Tyne – but also because of their commitment to building their seasonal menu around the freshest produce available which is something I am very passionate about,” said David.

“I’m looking forward to putting my own stamp on what is obviously a very successful business, and hopefully providing the loyal clientele, as well as new customers, with something a bit different including examples of the amazing produce that the rest of the world has to offer.”


Don't Panic! Our Beer & Bait Nights Are Back!


Another popular evening at River Café on the Tyne is our series of Beer & Bait Nights, whereby we put together a menu focusing on a country, which can be anywhere in the world, then source the beers from that country to match the menu.

Our series of Beer & Bait Nights are as follows:

11 March  | 13 May  | 24 June | 2 September | 14 October
