Visited with a friend. The tea room was busy as it was lunchtime. There was to be a 15-20 minute wait a table so they took a mobile number, so we could look around the shops until table was free. We both chose Jacket Potato with ChilliConCarne Filling which was very tasty.

Long trip from Bournemouth to Hull. Five of us, two kids.Googled ‘best stop over lunch’ on the M1 and this place popped up. Looked nice, good reviews so we included it in our stop over list. Phoned ahead but the nice lady explained it could be full as the little retail park had a fashion show... but to pop in anyway.

So we did and it was full, but they took our mobile number and said it would be ten to fifteen. No problem as there is a superb cook shop next door so we went shopping. True to their word they called and we took our table. Charming place... when people left the area was cleaned immediately. Great menu designed for quick delivery. And every plate of food was perfect. Delicious. My cheese and pork pie ploughman’s was the best I have had in years. Huge and delicious. Kids sandwiches perfect and even the mother in law loved her seafood sarnie ( she’s a tough crowd!). All perfect with lovely polite staff making sure we had everything.

So... and it was unanimous... we booked Sunday lunch for our long journey home. And we experienced all this loveliness all over again. The front of shop staff making it even more personal. It’s harder and harder to find this level of care and attention, they all had a family feel to them.

Half way home my daughter became tearful. She had left her cuddly Pusheen toy at the restaurant. She had just bought it in Beverley. My wife contacted Darlingtons and they looked but no luck, she must have dropped it somewhere. But then.. they texted us...they found it! My wife sent an envelope for them to post it back so all good. And today I had a call at work from my excited (8 year old) daughter. Her Pusheen had been returned, but also with a lovely surprise and a charming note. What a nice gesture. You are great people and good luck to you all and your business. See you next time we bomb up the M1. Boy, do I miss your ploughman’s!!! Pete and Isobel.

Thank Pete H

A delightful little tea room with a nice selection of food. The service was very good and the prices mean it is good value for money. The food was good and I would have to recommend this place for a delightful Ploughman's.

If you want a lovely afternoon out with wonderful food and excellent service make sure you visit Darlingtons Tea Rooms. The young lady who waited on us, named DANIELLE was a delight, so polite and helpful. We had roast pork, stuffing and warm apple sauce in a warm wholemeal baguette with side salad and crisps,a smoked salmon and prawns wholemeal warm baguette, also came with side salad and crisps. Then we could not resist the carrot cake with fresh cream to finish off.Well and truly full when we left.
A big thank you to all the staff we will be back.
