I have visited Starters many times and always order a parmo and each time they have been very good. I visited Starters on 15 Aug for my wife's birthday and we ordered 4 meals. 3 meals were at their usual good standard but the Parmo was a disaster. It looked like one of those small Supermarket frozen breaded chicken fillets... More

Had a really nice meal here late on Saturday night. We arrived at 9 and expected to be told they had stopped serving or were full, however they managed to squeeze us in on the last table and promptly brought the menu. While deciding they brought a nice bottle of chardonnay wine and jug of water. Our first course soon... More

Visited starters earlier today with my auntie for tea. Originally sat by the window but it was a bit drafty so we asked to move to a booth further indoors which they were happy to do, probably helped that it wasn't too busy at the time. Two female staff who dealt with us most of the evening were both kind... More

The service is not terribly welcoming, but the breakfast is extremely good value for money. It's served until 12 midday and I had a big plate of scrambled eggs on toast with a large cup of proper coffee for £3.50. Can't go wrong for that price!

Went here for a friend's party early lunch before few drinks in Yarm. The food isn't the problem here, it isn't fantastic but it is ok for the price. The service on the other hand is diabolical ! The waiting staff are at best just disinterested, waited forever for finished plates to be taken away and although surrounded by an... More

This chain does seem to have more popularity than it deserves I feel based on my visits to the various restaurants in Teesside. I have never opted for this restaurant out of choice, more due to other places nearby being full (which might give you a clue) but I have made 3 visits in total and each time I have... More

What a bad experience we had whilst visiting with a friend from down south. We waited an exceptionally long time for our drinks and it was an hour before our food arrived. The service was terrible but when the food did arrive it was really good. We have been to starters many times but will not be returning in a... More

Lunch on a Saturday. Not very busy when we arrived but We waited over 30 minutes for our drinks and over an hour for the food which consisted of a salad, a small burger and 3 sandwiches. The Manager didn't seem to care when we politely enquired as to the delay. The food wasn't anything to write home about either.... More
