Great food at a good price and very friendly staff and service. The restaurant adjoins the pub next door, so there's plenty of parking in the pub car park. The restaurant is completely separate once you get inside so no issues with noise from the bar etc.

The food and service is always very good and the restaurant itself has great character as well. Also, the wine bar attached is an ideal place to have have a drink before dinner or to go to end the evening. One of our favourite Sunderland eating places.
