We went to celebrate our sons birthday on Friday evening and were not sure what to expect, so you can well imagine our suprise when this turned out to be up there with some of the top city centre restaurants. The place is well set...out, you are not crowded and the ambience is chilled and relaxed. The young lady who served us was very professional,her timing and attentiveness was spot on. The food surpassed all expectations, quality freshness and flavour were top class; our party of 4 all had different starters, mains and desserts (shared tasting) and everybody agreed that the food was absolutely delicious and very reasonably priced. We would like to say thank for a wonderful culinary experience in delightful surroundings.More

We visited for sunday lunch. As others have mentioned this isnt fast food, its fresh and made to order so for starters and main course we were in there over 90 minutes. Saying that portions very generous, service and staff nice. We wont be back...as it was slightly too long to wait and the chairs arent that comfy but there was clearly lots of regulars and they were full so would recommed to try and not be put off by some of the other reviews for sureMore

Valentine’s Day do the pressure is on. We ate early. Fabulous starters -croquettes and crispy pork that we shared. Then salmon and smoked haddock. This food really is outstanding. Perhaps our wine could have been quicker and a knife with the cheese would have been...nice BUT we can’t fault the kitchen FABULOUSMore

Went here last minute after deciding to eat out. Managed to get a table on a Friday night without booking. Starks do a two course for £18 so opted for that. Fast and friendly service. The food was well cooked and very tasty. I recommend...the croquettes to start and the chicken with butternut squash mash.More

Food and service very good. Had booked a table because it is quite popular. On this occasion they were busy so I am glad I had booked.

Went for lunch which took an hour and a half to arrive in an almost empty restaurant. During that time myself and the kids were subjected to a constant stream of profanity coming from the open kitchen. Eventually when the food arrived both of the...kids meals had ginger hairs in which I assume came from the scruffy looking, foul mouthed, bandana sporting "chef". I can only assume the bandana makes him feel the part because the food he cooked was bland and very overpriced for what it was. Was down visiting Newcastle from Edinburgh, let me tell you this place wouldn't last a month up there.More

My sister brought me here for my birthday breakfast as we had seen great reviews online for the food. What a mistake! When we ordered we asked the waitress if she could please put a rush on our food (as we had to get back...home for my birthday cake being delivered), she said this shouldn’t be a problem....... I would totally understand if she had said at this point there was a delay, however 55 minutes later we had not been served, no one had even checked on us. We got up to the counter and said I’m sorry we are going to have to leave we’ve waited too long. The waitress just looked at me blankly, no apology. The chef then said he was serving up our food now, however the food he was serving was not what we had ordered. So we would have been sat nearly an hour to then be served the wrong dish!!? He said sorry and he would cook us up some fresh food now, but we did not have time to wait. Really disappointing, I understand that mistakes happen but it was not even busy and the waitresses could not have cared less. Thank goodness for Greggs next door!!More

Just stopped in for a cup of coffee but saw someone having some tasty looking food so we stopped for brunch. We weren’t disappointed. The food was amazing. The place itself has a modern / rustic style which comes together really well. All in all,...a lovely place. Would definitely come againMore

Third time at starks this time for breakfast, loads of vegi options which is great. We went for the smashed avo and huevos rancheros, both cooked and presented to perfection. Will be going back.
