This restaurant may not appear much from outside but the quality of the food and service are fantastic. The restaurant is nicely set out and the atmosphere is good. The best restaurant in Shildon

Great, food, atmosphere and service. We have had takeaways from here which we have collected and also taken advantage of their delivery service. This time we ate in at the restaurant and each time the food has been very good.
