  • My favourite place in Darlington centre to eat and/or socialise. The food has never, ever failed (and I’ve eaten there over 30 times over the years I reckon) and they constantly up there game by adding new dishes (their fresh fish dishes are absolutely delicious)

    The service and atmosphere can’t be bettered; relaxing, attentive and always upbeat.

    They fully deserve every success they have.

  • 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.

  • Mostly go to the Tapas to watch rugby on a Saturday afternoon, with some food. Food is great, beer is great plus an extensive wine and spirits list. Well worth a visit!
