The Curing House is a cool, contemporary and colourful little spot, perfect for special occasions like Father’s Day. 

A part restaurant, part charcuterie bar in the uber cool foodie neighbourhood of Bedford Street in the centre of Middlesbrough, home to a number of artisan and independent cafes, bars and shops. 

Decked out with funky wallpaper, retro furniture and fresh, clean paintwork, it’s a warm and welcoming place to hangout – and that’s before we get onto the food and drinks.

Start your Father’s Day dinner with a tipple and a toast. You’ll find an impressive array of wine, gin, craft beers and cocktails. All wines are well-matched with some of the cheese and charcuterie plates on offer. 

Charcuterie is key here, so you can pounce on a platter of hand-made and well-sourced meats, which might have their origins in Italy, Spain or Britain. You can add regional cheeses to these and eat them daytime or evening. 

But this Father’s Day, The Curing House team are also offering a special set menu: one-course (£13), two-courses (£16.50) and three-courses (£20) – with kids offerings available too.

Starters include celeriac soup, French onion soup with gruyere crouton, pork rillettes, oxtail ravioli, house cured salmon and English asparagus.

For the main event, diners can look forward to: sirloin of local dry-aged beef, chicken supreme, lamb rump, pork belly, moules mariniere and Yorkshire pea and asparagus risotto.

Fancy something sweet to finish? Tuck into delightful desserts including: rhubarb and apple crumble, warm orange and almond cake, white chocolate cheesecake, tonka bean panna cotta and Curing House cheese plate.

A delicious, local food journey for all the senses. Celebrate Father’s Day at this Bedford Street gem!
