Heard good things about this place but thought deco rather dated. We both ordered chicken kiev. It was ok but thats all i can say. It came with a very poor salad & chips. I' m sorry to say i wasnt impressed.

I've walked passed this restaurant various times over the years yet this was my first visit - I will be back though. The staff are so sweet and the food was remarkably lovely. I really enjoyed it and made sure I had 3 courses since it was so cheap. Cannot fault it. I left full of food and content. The... More

My parents have been eating at this restaurant for a very long time and its always on the list of places to eat when we come to Darlington. Once again we had a very good meal, excellent staff and very reasonably priced.

This little place is an old classic and is well known in the town and has been for many years. Beautiful home cooked food at a reasonable price and very friendly waitresses. Only slight downside is that it could do with modernising a little. All in all I recommend this gem!

I first visited this family run restaurant as an 17 year old, back when! The decorations may have changed over the years but the food has remained excellent. The two brothers who run it are really good hosts, contributing to a very fine experience. The fresh vegetables and home made chips are really tasty, complimenting the main course. Consistently good... More

The staff were very welcoming and the food was spot on - the roast dinner was especially gorgeous. We also tried the jam roly poly it was made the old fashioned way it was beautiful. Well worth a visit!

First time I'd ever been here & looking forward to going again. Celebrated my birthday here with some family & the food was delicious. Lots to choose from on the menu... The 3 fillet steaks we ordered were cooked to perfection. Homemade chips were gorgeous & the kids fish n chips went down a treat! Definitely recommend.

My Husband had never been to the Blue Lagoon and it was recommended by one of his work colleagues, and it just so happens we were in Darlington to pay our holiday to America and wanted to somewhere luxurious to dine for our mid-afternoon lunch. My husband suggest the Blue Lagoon, It was exquisite, set amongst the exclusive shopping area... More
