Came here over a year ago for a meal. And quite franky was rubbish!!!. . So whenever we came back was always for just a drink. Because it really is a lovely friendly smart pub. Heard the menu had changed. . .so. . Bit the bullet and had a meal on monday. . Two for one. And was actually quite good. . For a pub meal. Ribs and chicken were quite tasty. Chips were what you would expect from pub chips. Service was friendly and efficient.. Will be going back next time to sample the drink. . And. Food!!
Recently came here for tea with friends, it was the first time I had been and it was a lot better than I expected it to be. It was 2 4 1 on main meals which was excellent value it only worked out about £4.50 each. The food was typical pub grub stuff - I got scampi I could not fault it. I also had a voucher which was on the back of a wilkinsons receipt for 2 4 1 on desserts, I got a crumble it was loverly and it worked out £1.50 with the offer. Its decorated nice inside, the staff were helpful and I would not have a problem coming here again. I gave it four stars for excellent value.
Wow! Had lunch there last week and it was EXCELLENT.
Had a pasta dish which was almost certainly homemade and a very good burger & chips, followed by brilliant desserts.
Easy parking and they are doing a 2 for 1 promotion.
Only one tiny critisism too much tinned muzac I'd love to see a quiet area without it.
Definitely going back again soon.
Update 30 November 2011. Ah, sorry guys. We did go back and it was OK but no where near as good as the first time. Still very friendly and prompt service and I did notice a range of hand pulled beers which we'll invertigate one evening.
The White Heifer is a good place to visit for a meal, quiet drinks or to start a night out. It is located just outside of Darlington and next to a new housing development. It offers reasonably priced meals and reasonably priced drinks. The menu offers a good choice, for either lunch or an evening meal.
The White Heifer is pub grub and buy one get one free at that. I guess my experience is that considering we spent £5/£6 each for a steak and a fish dish, it was good value for money and my friend and I did not have any issues with the food we chose. Drinks were quite expensive but I don't think it's the kind of place you would go for a whole night out anyway.
This new pub located on the new housing development of West Park in Darlington is located close to direct links into Darlington and out to the A1. It serves a good selection of pub food and drink day and night. It is a busy family pub, that is nicely decorated and popular in the area. Has various food and drink offers on different nights and the pub quiz is pretty good.
The White heifer is a fairly new pub that has been open roughly a year, it has a very cosy atmosphere when you walk in with plenty of seating and a couple of soft leather couches to chill in!! The area surrounding the pub includes a co-op a dentist, pharmacy and some really trendy apartments. The pub has an area with a flat screen TV showing Sky sports news (but no live sport channels boo!!!). the food served here is good and the service is always with a smile! there is a quiz held some nights although not many people take part! this is an all round clean tidy enjoyable place to have a quiet drink
The place was better than your average 'pub' , but spoilt by non-stop 'pop' muzak, in every area- no escape from it, don't want a squaling pop diva in my ear while I'm eating and trying to have a conversation with fellow diners. There should be a 'music free' area SOMEWHERE , esp' in a dining area . When asked to turn it down, twice - the responce was "We can't turn it down on any given area " - in other words - you're stuck with it. 'Back ground' music , of a neutral kind, low , is acceptable if it's a 'must' ... but not the racket in here at present. The veg' was a tad TOO crisp also, my wife gave up on it . I like it under done rather than over, but even I found it a 'chew' . Overall, nice enough place , but spoilt by the 'muzak' .
We have tried the food there every time a change of landlord or menu is announced ever since it opened and every time have been GREATLY DISAPPOINTED!!. The pub itself is nice but the food and staff are awful. The staff do not care if they keep you waiting and all the food tastes as if it was either frozen, came out of a packet or was reheated after being cooked the week before. They need to cook from fresh and give the staff training on customer service
