Where would the people of Beamish be without San Lorenzo? Well, they’d be without some of the best and most humble Italian food in and around Stanley, for a start. This well-loved restaurant is right on Station Road and essential if you’re in this charming part of County Durham. It’s under new management these days and the new team are extremely passionate about service, food and making diners feel at home. San Lorenzo has an early bird menu of outstanding value, a thoughtful main menu as well as one for the kids. San Lorenzo's gets all the simple things bang on, hence it’s popular. Reserve a table now.
We know, we know. When a restaurant comes under new management there’s always a few nerves, from the diners as much as from the new management. Rest assured, however, there’s absolutely no need for pre-meal nerves at San Lorenzo’s — Beamish. Here you’ll find as good an Italian as anywhere in Stanley and it’s excellently located on Station Road in Beamish, just a stone’s throw from the famous open-air Beamish Museum. One of the biggest compliments we can offer the new-look San Lorenzo’s is that regulars who have been dining here for years are still returning – and with even more enthusiasm than they had before – not least because of the relaxing decor and warm service that greets them every time.
The early bird menu is always a win – available until 6pm everyday except Friday and Saturday, when it’s available until 7pm – and diners can select either two or three courses from a condensed menu. The value is unbeatable and you will be satisfied. The main menu offers a great selection of antipasti starters, as well as pizzas baked in a traditional Italian pizza oven and pasta coated in some of the finest sauces in Stanley. A standout from the meat section of the menu is the pollo saltimbocca, chicken breast stuffed with sage and mozzarella, wrapped in parma ham and served with a red wine jus, but there’s plenty more besides. Beamish will continue to love the Italian flavours at San Lorenzo’s, so reserve your table now.
Great atmosphere kids loved making their own pizza. Couldn't be happier. Food was superb . Have been twice now and would highly recommend it to anyone
Amazing. I will be returning and recommending everywhere. Food was great and was nice to not be interrupted in the middle of our meal by staff, they were so polite and chatty, an excellent reflection on the restaurant.
The food was absolutely gorgeous, the service was so quick and got our food straight away, my new favourite restaurant by far I'll definitely be going again!
