The Drawing Room at this contemporary restaurant located in The Biscuit Factory art gallery is a stylish, airy space for group dining.

Amber Dalton - The Good Food Guide

Yes, the exposed brickwork, the expensive hardwood floor, the battered leather sofa and the immaculately curated artwork are all in place; but this place has real substance, as well as the cool, contemporary style.

The Crack

The restaurant…feels like you’re sitting in a trendy New York apartment with its exposed brickwork and edgy paintings.

Katy Wheeler - Sunderland Echo

Artisan’s food is by no means style over substance. The quality of the ingredients and exceptional culinary skill shone through.

Alison Cowie - North East Times

From ‘delightful tasting menus’ to ‘excellent and generously proportioned Sunday lunches’, the restaurant on the ground floor of this converted Victorian warehouse (nowadays the UK’s largest arts and crafts gallery) wins praise for the “consistent quality” of Andrew Wilkinson’s cuisine.


For absolutely solid food…in a lovely setting and a bargain of a wine matching, Artisan adds up to a memorable experience.
