  • 5 star ratingWhat more can you say,a group of us “descended” on the bar after a golf competition,warmly greeted and served with great choice of beers and very reasonable prices.
    Service even though place was busy was always swift courteous and helpful.
    We decided grub needed so after quick whip round £10 each delivered £120 to the bar with the request that they choose food for us... what came was substantial and absolutely delicious.
    Previous events had ended up with a curry well that’s not happening again ,we’ll be back next year.

  • 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.

  • Amazing spot for absolutely class food. The selection of dishes is just enough from both Greek and Spanish origin. The (imported) cheese board is great for £8.99 and the meat dishes you can get are very well prepared, seasoned and presented. Stifado is one of my favourites along with Pollo y Chorizo a la Espanola with a nice creamy sauce (both around £5). The atmosphere is great, even on busy nights the vibe inside the joint is cool. A mix of locals, regulars and people from further afield complete the mix for a very inviting time. The staff are on point, they keep you looked after and are super-nice. The beer and wine selection on offer is also good. I've been here quite a few times over a thirteen year period and it still exudes the charm that I initially experienced first off. Can't wait to visit again. Next time I'll get some nice photos too.

  • 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!

  • 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.
