I decided to visit here after avoiding the place for about a year following a spate of bad Sunday lunches. I wish I hadn't... I ordered the cajun chicken with rice and salad. It came out within minutes of ordering and paying at the bar. What was put before me was chicken drowned in tomatoe puree, more than likely tinned,... More

As well as this there was a blackboard with a huge selection of other dishes including a delicious looking sausage and mash! What we were most impressed with was... More

The bill came to £52 with 3 drinks included. First of all the beef Sunday lunches were good but in other restaurants you get two Yorkshire Puddings and... More

Been coming here for ages now and find now on a Sunday they are doing a large Sunday lunch. Portions are plentiful and well worth the money. They also do 'light bites' Mon - Sat which are fantastic, they're just as big as a main meal. There is menus on blackboards on a few of the walls and is very... More

We stayed as a family and will definitely return. Nice spacious family room. Food was wonderful, both the evening meal and a hearty full English in the morning. Great friendly and welcoming staff especially the young man at breakfast, couldn't do enough for us. Thank you, we will be back

After a prolonged yomp around the Metro Centre ( and not looking to have a 'chain' meal at one of the myriad of food outlets therein), a quick scan of trip advsior and the satnav (not from this area) and we found the Bowes Incline. As always, you enter these premises with trepidation on what to expect but we quickly... More
