I emailed the cafe asking about allergies and they replied really quickly. They sent over photos of the packets of the items they thought would be ok and requested I confirm ad our allergies are quiet complex. Really above and beyond.More

Just popped in due to TripAdvisor reviews. Wow. Cocktails were great the lunchtime 3 small plates for £12 was well worth it. All 3 dishes were lovely, full of flavour and just scrumptious. Definitely coming back next time we are in Darlington.
