My husband and I were astounded to find such incredibly lovely and delicious food in such a small town. I think this was truly world class food and it justifies every minute we waited. May the slow food movement grow especially if it's going to produce fare such as this. Also, we could not have had more pleasant service in... More

I just had to go back two years later and have the Four Seasons Pizza - fresh and as good as it has been every time I visit. They do of course offer many other menu options and I am not a pizza seeker generally but I love their pizza. Booking essential on the Friday Pizza nights as they are... More

Friday Pizza nights at the Marmalade Cat seem to be a tradition in Darling so if you are in town on a Friday make sure you don't miss out. Mouthwateringly thin crispy bases, really tasty fillings and attentive friendly service make this the go-to place on a Friday evening. Booking essential.

Paused for a beer & lunch. Sat at the rear in the garden, which is an oasis. The staff were extremely professional & friendly & the whole experience was a joy. The scone & cheese was delicious, as was the Darling Brewery Beer!! A quirky place, which is well worth a visit. Thank you all!!

The breakfast was delicious...hot scones just out of the oven and more and the coffee was good. Great to browse the shop next to the restaurant and bought a beautiful dress for... More
