“Always good!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 July 2014 via mobile

Went here yesterday for our wedding anniversary lunch, excellent food and service which made up for the florist, floral charm, newton aycliffe - failing to deliver flowers as promised and not even making a phonecall- they could learn from the talbot about customer service!

“Really Enjoyable”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 July 2014

Four of our family came here to celebrate my husbands birthday and had the 3 course meal for £19.95. We all chose something different off the menu and thought the food was really good and beautifully presented. Service was very efficient by the young team of waiting staff.We had been booked to go elsewhere for another meal later in the week but returned here again as we were so impressed. Again we were not disappointed and had a very enjoyable evening.

“Never disappointed”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 June 2014

We have not been to this place for some time and it never seems to disappoint. Set in a lovely village just outside of Stockton the décor is modern and clean.
They do a special lunch and tea time menu which is quite extensive and you can have three courses for just under £20.
All the meals were beautifully presented with the confit of duck looking the most attractive of the starters.
The mains were of a good size and proved value for money with again plenty of choice. I had the gammon which was lovely.
The pudding did not disappoint and the ice-cream with liquorice was a delight.
The service was good although the waitress was rather flustered that some had arrived a few minutes before our table was booked and at that time she was single handed.
I would recommend this again.
