  • 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.

  • Nice food, but its not sure if it wants to be a bar or restaurant. Staff were fantastic and we left a tip for that, price was reasonable but you need to take your order to the bar and we weren't offered a dessert menu. Not really what I want from a restaurant

  • We visited the old yard tapas bar as a large group of 15. The food was excellent with a wide variety of Spanish and Greek tapas menus. What was really good was the 6 or more group menu which came out with over 10 (the beer was flowing so I cannot remember the exact amount) well sized dishes. The service was brilliant and what was nice was that they catered for individual needs, the pizza was available as an online pre order but not on the in-house menu and yet they still made it. It was a great night for all of us and I would highly recommend this restaurant.

  • Lovely food and friendly staff. Why a time limit? Why a rush to order, eat and leave? We were given an hour and a half to eat up, sup up and ship out. Before it came close to our time, we asked for the dessert menu, twice. Second time we (politely) commented we had to be out soon. The same with the bill. Why the rush? Upstairs only had us and one table of people when we left! Can't blame the staff, they just did as they had been told.
