Solomons (former Thorntree Farm), West Road

Solomons is a resturant on the West Road in Denton Burn, Newcastle. It was formerly Thorntree Farmhouse (aka Denton Burn Farm). The building dates from c.1790, built on the line of Hadrian's Wall, of which a fragment is exposed a short distance to the west. It is from a thorntree which grew on this fragment that the name of the old farm derived.[1] The building is Grade II listed on the National Heritage List for England.
