In mid January a friend of mine visited me for the weekend so having taken him for the day to Marsden, he returned the favour by taking me out for dinner to a local Italian restaurant called Sorella Sorella. It is on Gateshead Road in Streetgate, the next village down the road from where we live in Sunniside, Gateshead. It is only a ten minute walk for us to get there.
I've eaten there a few times before. Though not on the cheap side, the food is always superb. The restaurant took over the former Rose pub (which was previously known as the Rose, Shamrock and Thistle) a couple of years ago. The establishment was changed from a very quiet pub (I often wondered how it survived with so few customers) into one of the busiest restaurants in the area. To get a table, it is advisable to book in advance.
