A true taste of Italy in the heart of County Durham

Our restaurant is named after the original Italian Farmhouse in Puglia – the area of Italy that runs from the “spur” down to the heel of the “boot” – and we’re proud to be bringing a touch of this fine region to the North East.

We’ve taken to heart the Mediterranean practice of using what’s on your doorstep and much of the Farmhouse’s produce is sourced nearby, including our white fish which is landed on the North East coast and our beef which is reared on farms just up the road. 
Of course we also recognise that for our dishes to be truly authentic sometimes only Italian ingredients will do, which is why we import some of our produce directly from the region that inspired it, including the very finest olive oil, risotto rice, coffee and cheese.

So why not sit, back, relax and let us take you to the Mediterranean, with a good dose of Italian charm and mouth-watering cuisine – just like Mamma used to make!

Buon Appetito
