Lovely restaurant. Beautiful food and good service. We were seated to the left of the door as we came in, rather than the main body of the restaurant. Our only slight gripe was that one of our party felt the draught from the door every time it opened. It did not spoil our evening though.

Lovely food, nice buzzy atmosphere. Waitress was good but seemed 'new' as she wasn't able to answer questions about the menu.

Incredible food, very accommodating to dietary requirements, my favourite place to eat in yarm! It was just a touch too loud and too hot inside, but totally worth it for the amazing food

The only thing I could fault is the service charge that is automatically added to the bill. I would rather have the option of leaving a tip on the table to the amount I would like to leave. I understand I could have asked for it to be taken off the bill but that's that's little embarrassing

The restaurant was busy with people taking advantage of the Teesside Eats promotion. We had to wait 1/2 hour before our first food came but after that it flowed freely. The food was excellent - all 3 courses - and the portions were generous without being too much. Overall excellent value for money.
Noise levels were quite high, not helped by the parquet flooring. Some would describe this as a buzz, some would think it a bit noisy.
Definitely somewhere I would revisit.

We went for Teesside Restaurant week and didn’t expect the fabulous food and choices we had.
The staff are lovely, very efficient but not pushy and they do not rush you.

Nice welcoming atmosphere as soon as you walk in. Prompt polite service when you sit down, with drink orders taken quickly. Menus follow soon after and the waiting staff give you time to read the menu and make you choice. The food isn't cheap and the portions aren't that big, but the taste, the taste. Absolutely gorgeous with excellent service throughout. When you pay the bill, they explain that a 10% gratuity is added, but that it is voluntary. We paid it gladly and added a bit more, the staff deserve it.
