Visited here last Friday as a group of 13 with friends. Had heard it was very good but so disappointed. The place completely lacks any atmosphere. You take your own alcohol which is fine but we still waited ages to get a bottle opener. I noticed some tables had been offered wine coolers but we weren't. We all had starters,... More

I found this restaurant a few years ago when I was out driving in the areas around Sunderland - East Boldon is not exactly the centre of the world or even the North-East but it does have some decent food places and this is one of the best finds in a long, long time. I have eaten there many times... More
