About Fork in the Road

The Fork in the Road is a fantastic new concept. A formerly derelict building in central Middlesbrough – once the home to well-known toy store Romer Parrish – has come back to life with three distinct social enterprises. High end restaurant The Fork in the Road is a place of great food, ambience and opportunity. A number of the restaurant’s staff will always be those who’ve come through our programme designed to offer precious opportunities to those who need a helping hand – recovering addicts, ex-offenders and the long-term unemployed. The fit-out costs and working capital for this social enterprise have come from our parent charity CEO Sleepout charity and Public Health England. Opening in the not-too-distant future, our community cafe will be a great partner for The Fork. This bustling and friendly cafe will serve great good to ‘eat in’ or ‘go’ all day and will also be available for community events. As well as classic cafe eating options, you’ll also find some gorgeous and healthy dining ideas for us all to try. Launched by businessman and charity leader Andy Preston, CEO Sleepout is a Middlesbrough-based national charity that fight homelessness and the causes of homelessness throughout the UK. Our fight is funded with money raised by executives who sleep outdoors for one night to raise sponsorship from their business contacts and friends.

Staff were friendly, courteous and knowledgeable of the menu, in particular the feathered steak i ordered. Didn’t have to wait too long for food, which was well presented & delish! Atmosphere good - singer was very good- definitely would recommend

We had a table for 15 booked my only negative feedback would be the amount of time it took for the food to come out even though we pre ordered. The staff were really nice and very helpful and the food was amazing. They made a fuss of my husband as it was his birthday which was a nice touch and did apologise for the food taking so long. Would definatly come back but maybe in a smaller group

We arrived at 6pm looking forward to trying the fork in the road after hearing good reviews. After 1hour 45minutes we had only been given our starters. We had to then leave as our main meals did not arrive despite informing staff we needed to leave for a show starting at 8pm. The female staff member working on the bar was dismissive and unapologetic telling joe we needed to pay for our drinks after joe kindly told us we didn't need to as a result of our good not arriving. We left hungry, too late to eat before the show or get a drink once there. We were disappointed after hearing such good things and unfortunately the experience meant we won't be returning or recommending the fork in the road to others

we went to visit the "Fork In the Road" for our 28th anniversary meal . After wanting to visit since I heard of the concept. we managed to get there . The booking system is very good all on line, the staff are very knowledgeable with regard to the menu which was familiar but different at the same time. Not too packed but busy enough to have a great feel to the venue .The standard of the food was fantastic and we will be visiting again with friends and family .

The restaurant is much bigger inside than it looks from the outside and was quite busy when we arrived at 7.30 pm It is well laid out and we were quickly seated at a comfortable table . We (4 of us) all went for same starter - the black pudding which was topped with cheese and confit onions - very tasty. 3 went for the steak and the one more adventurous of us had the sweet potato tagine which got full marks. Steaks were as expected and cooked as requested. We all had the sticky toffee as recommended by the staff and it did not disappoint.Staff throughout were friendly knowledgeable and helpful .An enjoyable evening.
