Locally Sourced With a Hint of the Mediterranean

There are thousands of good restaurants out there but more and more customers want to know that the ones they choose are doing their bit. Choosing sustainable fish, sourcing locally, treating people fairly, recycling waste and improving energy efficiency.

Both of our unique venues pay tribute to not only imported classic Italian ingredients but also produce sourced nearby. Offering the best of both worlds makes for truly fine venues to dine out, whether it be modern or traditional you prefer.

Rest assured that all of our meat is sourced from farms around County Durham. And while Italians are also renowned for their fabulous "gelato" we are proud that our delicious ice cream comes from a littler closer to home - from Archer's in Darlington who use their very own Jersey herd to create the mouthwatering and creamy favourites in a variety of fabulous flavours.
