If you’re looking for absolute elegance when you dine out in Middlesbrough there is really no need to look any further than Vine. This nail-bitingly stylish restaurant on Roman Road in Linthorpe radiates an Old World charm that’s very unique indeed, with the menu taking all sorts of taste inspiration from Asia, the Mediterranean and modern-day Britain. At Vine you’ll find an a la carte menu alongside daily specials and sets, and with a head chef who has rubbed shoulders with the greats of the industry, an advanced reservation at Vine is highly recommended.
As we said, Old World charm is everywhere to be seen inside Vine thanks its elegant and, not to mention thoughtful, decor. And this is fitting, really, given the restaurant is housed inside one of Middlesbrough’s most historic buildings on the corner of Roman Road. Vine is also a family-run spot with a kitchen that is headed by chef Sean Calliste who’s not only extremely passionate about artful food, but he also developed his trade alongside Marco Pierre White and Gordon Ramsay. The menus at Vine take international inspiration, and they come alongside a well-stocked bar with over 16 craft ales on tap.
As you’d expect, quality is everywhere to be seen on the Vine a la carte menu making it likely one of the best in Linthorpe, and perhaps all of Middlesbrough. Choose from an impressive selection of chicken, duck, fish, beef or pork dishes, as well as delightful vegetarian options. The New Zealand back of lamb is a delight, as are the seared scallops with corn pudding, mushrooms, brown butter bacon sauce and peanut butter. The Prince Edward duck stew is also a winner and consists of a warming blend of garlic, tarragon, tomatoes and aioli. So as you can see, Vine serves up superb internationally-inspired food and Linthorpe is very lucky to have this restaurant – book a table today!
Great atmosphere and tasteful decoration combined with excellent food that gave pleasant surprises over and over again. Little gem in town. Highly recommended and would definitely go again!
Had a fabulous evening at Vine. The soft shelled crab was delicious. We had the steak and lobster sharing platter for our main which was amazing. Can recommend the Malbec to accompany. We might try something else next time - but then again ...
Great atmosphere and excellent food. My wife and I will certainly visit again and sample more of them dishes on offer probably the fish dishes.
