You can get some of the best fish and game in the North East from here. It is a locally owned, independent restaurant offering really good food for any occasion. The service is excellent, really attentive and makes eating there a very enjoyable experience.

I visited here for a meal, absolutely brilliant! Extremely delicious modern cuisine and good to see local sourcing of meat. Super service with passionate waiters. Only negative was it was a hot day and very hot inside, they could do with investing in air con.
