The décor, the service and the food were absolutely first class. The sandwiches, cakes, scones and raspberry eton mess were mouth watering. We had several refills of the tea pot and nothing was too much bother. The staff were attentive, polite and professional. Thank you for a fabulous day out.

Outstanding everytime we come here. I cannot fault this place. Its exceptionally clean, the staff are very friendly and there is a lovely log fire in the autumn/winter months. This is the best restaurant in Darlington. Also we visited for Sunday lunches last weekend and that was outstanding too! 😚
