We visited here on Mother's day, we had made a reservation though Facebook, however when we arrived there wasn't any reference to it. To the credit of the front of house, this did not phase them and they managed to accommodate our group of 6, with only with a small delay.

The restaurant is bright and airy and has a good ambience. The bar is well stocked, the cocktails were original and pretty good - give them a try! The menu offers a good choice without being large. It's great to see Darlington host to a restaurant that pushes the boundaries. I opted for the scallop starter which was well presented and delicious. The chocolate dessert was to die for, rich, beautifully presented and moreish!

Mains were a choice of Sunday roast, which were good but didn't match the high standard of the starter and dessert. I think the style of the food lends itself more to contemporary dishes and I will definitely be returning to try the full menu!

A gem tucked away, difficult to find but restaurant signage will be going up very soon! The restaurant is in a listed building, the ambience is welcoming with pleasant staff who were very knowledgeable on the menu and the recipes. The presentation was good, portions are fine cuisine dining sized. From the menu the following dishes were tried:- starters sea bass, steak tartare mains flatbread with lentils and roasted veg and venison with faggot. Idea was lovely but a little disappointing on taste! Wine list extensive.

We went to celebrate our 20th wedding anniversary and what a wonderful experience; everything from the decor to the outstanding meal were amazing. We had the 6 course taster menu which was perfect; the tastes and presentation as well as the explanation of each dish by the brilliant and attentive staff made for a very memorable evening. The fact this hidden gem is in Darlington is unbelievable, no need to travel long distances to have a great food experience.

We had already heard great things about this restaurant and we weren't disappointed. What a treat to have a high calibre chef on our doorstep after years of mid range eateries around the town. Service was exceptional, the food even better. Cannot recommend highly enough.
