I have been to this little Bistro a few times now and have never been disappointed by the food or by the service. The atmosphere is always friendly and I have never had any issues there. I have recommended it to friends who have also been and they haven't been disappointed either and have themselves gone back again and again.... More

I came here expecting great things..I was served cold good which I really couldn't eat. Service was incredibly slow and the staff were almost as cold as the food, they didn't smile once! The place looked like it hadn't been cleaned in a while as there was food on the floor. Our drinks also took a while to come out... More

We have been dining here since it opened (20-25 times approx.) and the service and attention to detail has remained as high as the day it opened. The staff make a genuine effort to make the night special whatever the occasion. We have recommended the restaurant to friends and relatives and everyone has enjoyed it and also go back as... More

Took a punt with this restaurant to try somewhere new and wasn't disappointed. Great fresh local produce, friendly staff and good wine. Definitely worth a visit and a trip from Durham or further afield. Very good value.

This is the second time my partner and i have been for a meal here and have been impressed both times. The ingredients are obviously great quality and fresh which really shows through in the taste.

A great little find, fantastic food and service. We went on steak wednesday, the steak was soft and juicy and the house wine was the best house I've had in a long time! Will definitely return

This about the fourth or fifth time we have visited and the food was excellent as it always is. The garlic bead is wonderful and the pizzas are beautiful. Staff is welcoming and very friendly. Will continue to visit. Thank you Lee.

We really enjoyed the food at the restaurant and the owner is very friendly. Only complaint was the plate being a bit cold but otherwise a very good experience.

We have been here twice and on both occasions have found the service to be excellent, the food of a good standard and the ambience relaxed. No issues at all and a good range of special menus. Would potentially get lost in a bigger market but for Spennymoor it sets itself a cut above. I like that it has thrown... More

Thank you very much for the great meal we all had for my daughters 21st birthday. Food was lovely and could not fault it. Owners were lovely people who went out of their way to be helpful. I asked for a baloon to decorate table and table was set with 3 and a happy birthday ribbon. She enjoyed it as... More
