We decided to have lunch on a whim and nipped across the road to The Blue Lagoon. The food was wonderful and plentiful too. To be honest we ate so much we nearly had to have an afternoon nap. Well worth a visit. It is a great place even if the décor is a little dated. If you loved old... More

Like some other reviewers, we had also not been to the Blue Lagoon for quite sometime. Feeling nostalgic, we decided to go on a windy wet night. First surprise was, that unlike some other empty restaurants in the town centre there was a good level of customers inside. Greeting was warm and friendly and that set the tone for the... More

Haven't been for 34 years, it was a group of 12 friends. Very warm welcome and friendly staff. It was a busy evening (last Friday before Christmas) but that didn't affect service. Food was good, most of party had chosen from the tea-menu and it was typical chicken Parmo, scampi, cod, roast. I chose from standard menu, chicken Oscar, and... More

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!
