I visited here with family for my brothers birthday and would definitely recommend it. It is in a strange location just off the A66 but once inside you would never know. There was so much choice for food, it all tasted beautiful and they were happy to let me have a carry out when I couldn't finish all my meal.... More

Excellent food, really unique menu, problem is getting there on the A66 but once you can manage to get there it's worth it, service wasn't very good waiters had no emotions, but the food made up for it.
