Eleven is a relaxed neighbourhood restaurant & wine bar set in the beautiful village of Ponteland, Northumberland.
Eleven is run by three friends; Chefs Danny Land & Ryan Carr and front of house manager Stephen Pitfield. Finding ourselves without a job when the pandemic hit in 2020, and with the prospect of finding a new job slim in an industry hit so hard, we decided to take onus of the situation. We got our heads together and believed there must be something between us that is possible, this is when we opened Eleven in 2021.
A relaxed, modern British and hyper seasonal restaurant at the heart, where the menus are regularly reimagined. The food is very much produce driven and we are proud to work with the very best producers and suppliers in the UK. We forage a lot for the restaurant ourselves. Being situated in beautiful Northumberland we are incredibly lucky to be surrounded by so much incredible produce growing in abundance and a lot of it regularly features on our menus.
Lunch offers charcuterie, cheese & small plates designed for sharing. Dinner is a five course set menu offering our unique interpretation of seasonal cooking. Our wine bar runs alongside the restaurant and offers full range of our drinks list as well as a bar menu offering charcuterie, cheese & snacks. The wine bar operates on a walk in basis only – if there is a table available when you arrive, its yours. However, unlike the restaurant, you will not be able to make a reservation for this.
We aim to provide a relaxed, fun and unique dining experience introducing you to new ingredients and techniques but with a familiar feel providing value for money found nowhere else.
We hope to see you soon,
Danny, Ryan & Stephen
