Dine in style in the characteristic old signal box and railway carriage in the heart of Newcastle at The Valley Junction 397. “The most original Indian Restaurant in Great Britain” awarded by The Curry Club of Great Britain The railway carriage, which is part of the restaurant, was numbered 397, when it was built for the Great Northern Railway at Doncaster in 1912, and was originally built as a saloon for wealthy families to hire for their journeys.
The Jesmond restaurant has been recently transformed with an extension enlarging the fine Indian dining room and creating an elegantly refurbished, stylish and modern restaurant.
Dining in old railway carriages may not be that unusual nowadays but if you couple it with the fact its attached to an old signal box then we have a winning combination. Whether you are a railway enthusiast or just a lover of experiencing the unusual, this is a great place to spend some time.
