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 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.
