Sadly the meals were disappointing. The meat tasted the same as processed products that had been pre-sliced and reheated. Not up to previous standards.

Brilliant team who have perfected their offering at a smaller location over the years. A pleasure to see them thriving in their new bigger home.
Great food, lovely service and a cool ambience.

Not sure why they ask for occasion as they don't do anything for it anyway..
But the food was good.

Lovely, clean and spacious but noisy.
Food not as good as in old premises:belly pork totally overdone (and dry) but veg good.
Aperol spritz made with soda water (not prosecco).
Service slow but all staff friendly.
We will give it another try before deciding if we were just unlucky

Food was delicious apart from the pizza both my son and husband weren’t that keen on them as they were quite dry and flavourless. All other meals were lovely. Would go again definitely but world avoid the pizza.

Food was disappointing, bread dry and very difficult to eat when toasted for pate as rock hard.
Lasagne bland needed more flavour/seasoning.
Chicken was overcooked and chewy.
Sticky toffee pudding was not sticky at all, very dry and could not eat it.
Staff were very busy but friendly enough although no one really asked if food was ok until the end and it was difficult to catch their attention.
They did not charge for sticky toffee pudding.
We felt some of the food was probably frozen and then defrosted and reheated which resulted in the above issues.
The restaurant is out of the way and limited roadside parking.
I doubt we will visit again and do not feel I could recommend to others

Exactly what we expected, service was great, staff really friendly, food was excellent, this is the second time we have been since they moved from Chester Road and both times have been good, would recommend to friends and family or anyone else who was looking for a good night out with good food.

Found this gem based on other great reviews and it certainly didn’t disappoint-amazing night. Easy booking service, outstanding service and fabulous food and drinks. We got 2 courses for £12 and portions sizes were very large. Will definitely be going back and recommend it to anyone who’s in the Sunderland area!!

Pizza and pasta dishes were really nice.

Starters were OK. I was disappointed to see dip served in a paper cup, I don’t think that’s appropriate for a nice restaurant.

Wine was decent and not too expensive and there was a nice Spanish lager on tap.

Would definitely go back.

Order was not passed to kitchen, it was eventually taken again.
Wrong order was sent to table but we accepted to save time.
No serving spoons with veg, I had to use a fork to get peas on to my plate.
Had to chase staff for sauces which came after 5 mins which ment lunch was already cooling down.
Staff leaning over food to serve drinks.
Overall disappointing Sunday lunch with the family. We only live 5 mins away so I was pleased to here such a well respected restaurant was moving close. However after Sunday we won't be returning.

Kind regards

Paul
