What is it?
One of the coolest restaurants in the UK, according to The Times (and we’re not arguing), the Cook House began by occupying a couple of shipping containers in the Ouseburn, offering a ‘space to eat, sit, rest, work and hang out’. Serving up top drawer brekkie, lunch and supper – when one of its legendary supperclubs are on the boil – the Cook House sauteed itself into the hearts of its regulars, of whom there are many.
Fast forward to 2019 and you’ll now find the Cook House in a thoroughly more permanent spot in the Ouseburn’s Foundry Lane following a successful crowdfunding campaign – which demonstrates in itself the high regard in which this place is held.
Why is it smashing?
Founded by The Grazer blogger, aka Anna Hedworth, the Cook House has become a tasty fixture in the Ouseburn, bringing the warmth and chattiness of an open plan kitchen together with restaurant quality grub. And although the address has changed, we’re in no doubt that all the things which garnered this place much local and national attention will still be present and correct – most probably with bells on.
Not only that, but the Cook House is now spread out over two levels. There’s a cafe downstairs and restaurant upstairs which means Anna can very much up the ante when it comes to how many people can enjoy her food, cookery classes, special events and warm-as-toast atmosphere.
