  • review rating 0  We visited this evening and had such a great meal ! The staff couldn’t of been more helpful if they tried. The lady checked with the chef what dishes I could have and highlighted the menu for me ( no dairy ) There was loads ! They even double checked something was for my partner that we ordered before bringing it out due to it containing dairy. I am such a fussy eater but I thoroughly enjoyed our meal and felt confident to be eating here. It’s the first place I’ve actually felt comfortable and confident eating at in a long time and even better that I had such a huge choice!! Thanks for such great service and see you soon :)!

  • review rating 5  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

  • review rating 5  This was a Google find after spending time in the north east. Highly recommended. Great service and great food ! If your ever near Darlington city centre and fancy something fresh and authentic give this place a visit. Has a split menu, half tapas style dishes and half meze style. Luckily on my visit they had a special offer of 3 dishes for £10 off a slightly smaller version of the main a la carte. Again highly recommend this place. I will be visiting again very soon

  • review rating 5  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.
