This is an ideal place for inexpensive good plain food when you just want something simple for your evening meal. If you are in before 7 you get the early evening menu which is extremely good value. I recommend the roast of the day, lots of meat and vegetables beautifully cooked.

This place is so lovely and you can tell the love that the people have for their business since it's obviously a family run one. The menu is simple really in terms of what's on offer but it's pitched perfectly and every time that I've been there, it's been really busy. Cheap as chips as well and I couldn't really... More

Looked forward to it as had heard quite good reviews, went with my partner and we were both very disappointed, food was average for the price, definitely a lot of other restaurants in town providing better.

We have been to the Blue Lagoon on several occasions and must say that the food, the service and the friendliness of the staff are always excellent. Well worth a visit if you are in the centre of Darlington. Parking not easy but very close to quite a few car parks.
