  • I always love coming here. My last visit, on m y birthday, made extra special by a delivery of flowers from my other half, and the attentive staff offered to put them in the cellar to keep them safe while we ate. Great service and atmosphere. Coming again very soon.

  • My partner and I were passing through Darlington last night on our way home to Scotland and decided to stop here for a meal. We arrived wearing tracksuit bottoms etc and were told on arrival that there was a dress code which meant no tracksuits allowed. We were given a table, however.

    We ordered our food and didn't have to wait too long for it to arrive. Everything was lovely until I found a long hair in my Tzatziki. I pushed it aside and continued with everything else. At the end of the meal I pointed out the hair and was relieved to have the item removed from the bill and a very embarrassed waitress couldn't apologise enough.

    I would definitely come here again if I'm passing through Darlington in the future as it was genuinely a nice place to eat.
