Went in group of 6 for meal on Sat night. Great food and service in the upstairs restaurant...though food took a bit longer than usual to arrive, but all agreed our meals were delicious. This place has got such good ambiance....whether you go for value for money tapas /pasta in the downstairs bar bistro area or for a cracking meal upstairs. It really has got the whole bistro experience absolutely right.

This place boasts the most chilled out atmosphere in Chester-Le-Street.

Friendly service, a great happy hour selection, outside seating for when the sun is shining ... and, as if that isn't enough, they serve Timmermans Strawberry Beer on draught! What's not to love about this place?

Have been to this place a few times over the last few years.

Visited this place for my daughters birthday with other members of my family. We had originally booked up to go to another place on the other side of Durham, but due to the place closing as we arrived (closed for good), this was a popular choice to visit. No reservation needed and we were a party of six.

Seated straight away, drinks ordered & served quickly.

We all ordered starters, Garlic Mushrooms & Soup were the obvious choices, the Garlic Mushrooms were excellent. All the bowls were empty so it seemed the soup was spot on.

The main courses came soon after, Gammon, Lasagne, a couple of Steaks & Fish and Chips, all were good sized portions served hot. The Fish & Chips were excellent and the chips are the best in the area !!! Homemade chips at the best.

My daughter had a chocolate cake for dessert, which was a very good sized portion.

Overall an excellent family meal, clean plates & excellent service,

All the staff were friendly & very efficient and they serve a good pint of beer.

Took the wife here for Tapas and bottle of wine before going to a party, cracking atmosphere, very busy yet our order was taken almost straight away,
The wine was chilled and came with frosty glasses (nice touch) Nice comfy setee's.
We ordered 6 Tapas for £10, which were fantastic.
Spot on for what we wanted.
The only slight critisism is the 2 large TV's either end of the pub, with the sound off and MTV playing, they seem to serve no purpose other than distracting males, who are mentally incapaple not staring at TV's.
Also the picture for pub is not right, this for the Chester Moor the sister pub about 1 mile up the road.

I've been for meals a number of times for a number of reasons over the past year each visit I've not been disappointed with the food or the service, my grandson was 2/3 at the time and was made most welcome even down to storing the pushchair out of the way and safe.
