Popped into the White Heifer yesterday for lunch with my two boys, the service and the food were excellent. Great value for money and Will certainly be going back.

Group of 15 went for a evening meal. We all ordered in couples to take advantage of the buy one get one free offer. All orders were submitted together meaning we got the food all roughly the same time. Everything went well apart from one order, lamb mince that didn't have any lamb in. My steak was meant to be...

Have visited the pub on many occasions, mainly for drinks but on this occasion my wife and I found it easier to call to the pub and have them wait on us and grab some food. Had a burger and doubled it up for only £1.50 with a chicken breast on top. Wife had very similar and we got to... More

Rounded off our family day out with a visit for tea. Got the two for one offer so only paid for two meals and very nice they were too! Pleasant surroundings, friendly server and prompt service. Will definitely be back when I fancy saving on cooking! Good menu choice as well as specials board - something for everyone!

Staff were friendly and welcoming but the quality and freshness of the food was very poor. The steak was 80% gristle and dripping wet, chips luke warm, brown slimy salad and kids burger was a cheap frozen one. Poor choice of Marston's considering it's a Marston's pub. Was offered 20% off next time but as we don't live in Darlington... More

Came into this lovely pub yesterday for food with my mam. I had the chicken and rump (should have had cajan on it but they left it off for me) and my mam had rump and king prawn salad. Both were hot and delicious. The pub was quite busy but quiet in the section we sat. The staff on shift... More

Went in here with my girlfriend after getting back from a long day of travelling. The food is really well priced with good portion sizes! The staff were all spot on The manager Axl and the team were very attentive, which brought a great atmosphere to the pub.
