Very reasonable priced. Garlic mushrooms were delicious and had chicken a la creme which was tasty but the best bit was the delicious homemade chips. Very good friendly service shame it is closing in the New Year it is one of those places that has been running for 20+ years with the same menu full of favourite classics

Went to the blue lagoon for a meal last Saturday, after reading in the Northern Echo that it was closing in January. We had a wonderful meal as always, I had the vegetable Moussaka & I wasn't disappointed it was great as usual. My partner also had Moussaka, but with meat which also was good. We had a liqueur coffee... More

This place has been around for decades! What better testament is there. Nothing fancy and quite old style in many ways. Some may say out of date and out of style, but others would say quaint I would imagine. The food is always of a good standard and it's a shame it doesn't have a huge fashionable following. I guess...

This is a must to visit, but you will most likely have to book. We went on a Monday evening at 7pm and just managed to get the last table. The food is excellent and plentiful, and the staff very welcoming and pleasant. A well run restaurant of 5 star environmental health inspection rating, and it was obvious why, from... More

Ive been to the Blue Lagoon on a handful of occasions previously with family, but I was last here on August 25th on a first date. As soon as we were inside the building we were greeted with pleasant smiles and shown to our table. Everything from ordering food and drinks to paying our bill and leaving was perfect! I... More
