I have been several times and each time the food has been great. Pleasant service. I will certainly return. Would like to see the lasagne back on the menu.

I went for breakfast with my wife and daughter, food turned up pretty quickly and wasn't bad. I did however order a glass of fresh orange juice that never turned up. Food: 3/5 Staff: 4/5 Location: 3/5 ( I personally don't like Yarm) Cleanliness: 4/5 Would I go again? Yes

I really wish we lived near this restaurant as it's one of the best meals we've. The food was delicious and the prices all reasonable. Many dishes were on offer ( a bit like a tapas approach) so we had four that we shared. We also got chips and hurray they were proper home made -not frozen, which complimented the... More

As a customer who has been to starters a few times, I was very disappointed with the service we received when we went last night. Our table was booked for 9 and to avoid being late we arrived at 8:45 and waited at the bar for a drink before being seated. Myself and 7 others were out for my girlfriend's... More

On a wet day in Yarm we discovered Starters. We decided to have a warm drink and cake and wow, we were not disappointed. The portion sizes were ample and the produce was clearly freshly made. Lovely food, and a great pit stop.

Positive: Good setting, spacious booths, retro styling and attention to detail. Clean toilet facilities. Efficient, pleasant service. Large, varied menu choice. Reasonable prices. Big portions. Negatives: The food we tried was underwhelming at best but at worst badly prepared, greasy and tasteless. Cocktails were too sweet. Maybe we caught it when the chef was away as it has the potential... More

Had a nice meal with very good service last week.for what I paid I thought it was good value for money.The place was very busy but we were looked after.We eat at all the places in Yarm and have paid a lot more for a far worse meal.

We went here to celebrate my birthday with a few friends. The food was lovely however we sat for over 30 minutes without drinks. We asked for the bill and it took 20mins. The girl then said she had forgotten but there was only 2 other tables in by this point as it had got so late! I used to... More

Hello and thank you for your review, sorry about the delay with your drinks, 30 minutes wait for drinks seems to be the standard according to the last 2 reviews on this site, but that is certainly not my experience and I am there 6 days per week! again you must also be very patient to wait so long without...

Hello and thank you for your review, sorry if our service was not up to its usual high standard, we had been exceptionally busy for breakfast and then early lunch before quietening down, then were very busy again from 4pm probably due to the Gala being on the same day, we usually give menus out when we seat guests so...

Went for a friends birthday, the bar service was painfully slow, atrociously disorganised, the barmaids didn't seem to really know what they were doing, and the wine list was limited. The food wasn't bad, but it wasn't anything amazing, I enjoyed the pâté although it wasn't any better than the pâté from waitrose, or since there's not one round here,... More
