We called into Starters at about four on a Saturday afternoon for coffee and cake. The place was very quiet, with only a few customers, two staff waiting on tables and two behind the bar to make drinks and coffee. Should be served quickly, we thought - no way! A waitress came to take orders, but went first to a... More

We called into Starters on NYE, whithout a reservation. We were told we could be accommodated as long as we were finished by 18:30. With this in mind we thought we would be served swiftly. This was not the case, we waited for our drink orders to be taken, once we orderd our mains we waited over 30 minutes for... More

Walked in and wondered if we had done the right thing as lots of screaming coming from children on many tables. However as it was 7 pm they didn't stay long. Ordered food which arrived well presented. Paella was excellent with plenty of mixed sea food Sea bass was lovely but not if you're very hungry. ( you can order... More

I like the idea of Starters. The food is very nice and the staff are welcoming. It's ideal for a big group due to the small portions and the options of sharing.

I turned up without booking on Christmas Eve for brunch. Even though I wasn't sure how many of my family would be turning up to join me. the manager was extremely helpful, reserving two booths for me. In the end 19 of us turned up over a period of two hours and enjoyed an excellent value-for-money range of food from... More

Yarm is full of great places to eat, sadly Starters isn't one of them anymore. The menu is restricted now and the food never more than mediocre. Our food was tepid when it came out and the service wasn't fantastic. A shame because it used to be lovely.

I love the concept of having lots of mini dishes - like an English tapas. I've been here a couple of times with friends as a result. However, I just felt the food isn't much better than you could have buying it all at the supermarket. The restaurant itself is nicely arranged, and the service was ok.

We'd heard very positive reports about Starters from colleagues so decided to give it a try whilst visiting the area on business. The restaurant was very warm and welcoming on arrival and the menu looked appetising. We chose a number of starters so we could share (all similarly priced) but when served was surprised by the variation in size of... More

Visited here after being told how great it was, a must do, can't miss place to eat whilst staying up in Stockton. The food was pretty good and nicely served, the service was as expected, certainly not outstanding but I don't feel it was brilliant value for money when compared to other restaurants. The pork 3 ways was tasty but... More
