WITH eating out not possible under the latest Covid lockdown, the North-East is tucking into takeaways.
But as restrictions continue, many of us have exhausted our favourite food and are looking to try something new without having to spend hours preparing it in the kitchen.
Whether it’s getting your fix of fish and chips, pub grub or treating yourself Thai, sometimes you can spend what feels like forever scrolling through different options.
That’s why, with the help of Just Eat, we’ve pulled together a list of recently added takeaways across Darlington, Durham and Teesside.
This traditional real ale bar offers hot roasts, pulled beef sandwiches, roasties and even pigs in blankets.
After joining Just Eat just a month ago, bosses took to social media to give their thanks, saying they did not anticipate how many orders they would get.
The Yellow Rose has everything you need from a local, including a family-friendly atmosphere during the day and poker, pool and music competitions in the evening.
While you can’t get an evening of bar sports delivered to your door, you can get pizzas, parmos and burgers.
