Hjem team to create new restaurant in Northumberland

The team behind Michelin-starred Hjem in Northumberland have set their sights on a new venture – Freyja – within the Close House estate at Heddon-on-the-Wall.

Chef Alex Nietosvuori and wife Ally are planning to create the new restaurant with rooms in a walled garden with spectacular views of the Tyne Valley. Plans for the restaurant include a garden-to-fork experience showcasing Alex’s Scandinavian style of cooking, with the team behind Hexhamshire Organics set to oversee the garden, and Hexham-based Elliott Architects designing the restaurant and 12 bedrooms.

Work is expected to start in July 2024, with an opening date in late-2025.
