Description: Fratello’s Scotch Corner is a landmark restaurant as this site has been a meeting place since the Romans and today is no different. Its central position situated at the junction of the A1 and the A66 near Darlington makes it the perfect foil for friends to gather or for family groups to unite. Opened in January 2012 this fresh, contemporary restaurant has brought a blast of glamour to Scotch Corner. Fratello’s is a modern Italian that attracts everyone from families and business delegates to weary travelers and locals who love the restaurant’s generous portions. The fashionable décor provides a modern eating experience yet the layout provides plenty of corners to retreat to for an intimate meal with a loved one. With its red, black and white colour scheme, the dining room is a stylish affair complete with banquettes, leather seating, designer lights and plush carpets. A smart selection of starters alongside pizzas, pasta, salads, meat and fish dishes and puddings, Fratello’s has something to suit all palates and wallets, and is ideal for all kinds of occasions.

What a lovely place! It was warm and welcoming, nice staff and décor. The menu is quite extensive and we were spoilt for choice. The food was very nicely presented and delicious. We will definitely be going back.

“nicely done,def go again!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 3, 2012

This place has had a recent refurbishment and is really plush. You go through a large bar area before the restaurant. Our table was ready and right by the window. The manager who has an interesting Italian/jordy accent was very helpful and made some excellent recommendations as I’m not overly knowledgeable on Italian dishes. We had 3 courses starting with the anti pasti which was pretty good loaded with all the meats you would expect and really fresh ciabatta bread. The staff suggested prawns and meat ball pasta for main which was again lovely. Finished with sorbet, unfortunately they had run out of the slow gin variety but this wasn’t a problem. After the meal we went into the hotel bar which has a really nice down tempo lounge atmosphere and a grand piano in the corner. I was really impressed by how friendly everyone was and with the refurb they have obviously made a massive ffort to really make things right.
I would recommend this place for value for money, good atmosphere and helpful and knowledgeable staff with good food. Will go back and stay in the holiday inn next time I’m visiting rather door than waste my money on the shabby Travelodge down the road.
