My sons bought me a voucher for the only Michelin star restaurant in the North East. We decided to stay in the hotel as well. When we arrived in the car park someone came out to meet us and took us to our room. The room was lovely and had the poshest tea bags I've ever seen! The evening meal... More

From the moment we arrived and were warmly welcomed into the small bar area, we knew we were in a very special place. Checked out the cocktail list and chose a Winston Churchill (chocolate and cigar flavour.. you have to try it!) Absolutely wonderful meal (5 taster menu) last night (5th June) .. each course intriguing in its description and... More

Have eaten here several times over the years and it gets better and better. Now having a Michelin Star. Dinner was excellent with fresh ingredients imaginatively used by self taught Chef James Close. Two tasting menus to choose from; one 5 course and the other 8 courses, both reasonably priced. Very friendly and helpful staff and happy to adjust menu... More

This one star on the out skirts of Darlington is rapidly becoming a clear icon, stunning execution of great ingredients, talent and passion abound, a rare thing in this neck of the woods, I would date say you would not find better anyware regionally

Fantastic little place in the countryside. A real hidden gem would recommend booking a room. Spotlessly clean with all that you could need and a great breakfast. The meal was fantastic and the service matched. Would definitely recommend

We came to celebrate my husbands 40th. Friendly, knowledgable informal service. Amazing food and the suckling pig was spectacular. A fabulous lunch on the doorstep. Perfect team between front of house and kitchen. Thank you for helping us celebrate! X

I have eaten here twice in last three months. Excellent and interesting menu although I would personally be happy without a full description of menu at time of ordering! Look forward to our next visit

This sampler meal was a food experience absolutely delicious, well worth every penny, it is small however the service was efficient, informative and friendly. A memorable night and I would certainly go back. Excellent

Outdoor seating for drinks available in warm weather Interesting non alcoholic drinks available in addition to usual brands. Had the tasting menu at £30, 5 courses plus amuse bouche to start. For another £30 you can have the... More
