A popular Darlington restaurant has ‘temporarily closed’ as it prepares to relocate its business.

Dough, located on West Auckland Road in Cockerton, Darlington, is temporarily closed according to the business’ Instagram page.

The business has confirmed it is “closed for relocation.”

The business originally opened in May 2022 and is operated by the owners of Salt, another business in Darlington.

Aja Dodd, writing in September 2022, said: “Something new I experienced at Dough was the waiting staff asking if we would like new cutlery after each course instead of removing and replacing them as is usual.

“After some Googling the following day I discovered this is a trend that started in the United States, and for me, it can stay there.

“Overall we had a great evening. The salty pizza and the cutlery situation made it fall slightly flat, however, both pasta dishes were delicious and the restaurant had a nice intimate feel and a cosy atmosphere. 

“It struck me as an ideal date spot and I think we’ll both be going back.”

The Northern Echo have contacted Dough for more information.
