Seasonal, Sustainable, Local

Restaurant Rebel is located in the up and coming Newcastle suburb Heaton, tucked away on Heaton Park Road. A dream project for Lindsay Rushton and Mike Reid, Rebel encompasses their goal to bring something different to the Newcastle food scene.  Think a surprise menu, an immersive playlist, and informal dining experience.


Rebel is focussed on using the best of local produce, showcasing a unique wine selection, and championing the regions suppliers.



Our Story

Co-owners, Lindsay and Mike, spent over a decade gaining experience at the likes of Michelin starred House of Tides, Paul Rankins and Jesmond Dene House. Deciding to start their own project while working together, the idea of rebel was born.


Rebel opened in April 2022, and within the first few months achieved a spot in both the Michelin and Good Food Guide.

The following year, Ro opened its doors - a relaxed bar with curated cocktails, following rebel's ethos.
