Featured Darlington Restaurants
1. The Orangery, Rockliffe Hall British, Traditional restaurant in Darlington
A gem set in a fantastic hotel, golf club and spa this striking glass-roofed chamber is part of a luxurious five-star not far from Scotch Corner. Reports on Richard Allens cuisine are not numerous but couldnt be more complimentary (and in September 2017, the AA upgraded the restaurant to being one of the limited number in the country with four rosettes).
2. PizzaExpress Pizza restaurant in Darlington 1 Skinnergate - DL3
For the first 20 years of this guide, this famous pizza chain with its surprisingly distinctive branches was with tedious regularity the surveys most mentioned group: constantly re-inventing itself to remain everyones favourite standby, especially with kids in tow. Competition is sharper nowadays however, and since its ownership changed a couple of years ago (to Hony Capital) ratings and the volume of feedback have slipped well below their historical average. Yes, it is still much-mentioned, and still as reliable as ever to armies of loyal supporters, but harsher critics are stunned by the complacency and staleness of the brand: even the ubiquitous, good value voucher deals are starting to lose their shine.
