About Us

We are a small family-run restaurant where we all love food!

Our dream was to own a restaurant where our customers would feel relaxed and taken care of at each and every visit. After being made redundant through ill health the opportunity at Bedford Street arose and The Curing House was born. As owners we approached the restaurant design and offer from a customers' perspective and to support us we have built a strong team of professionals with vast amounts of industry experience.

Our interest in charcuterie resulted in a unique concept bringing an old craft to a new market in Middlesbrough. We offer a fine selection of air dried hams such as Iberico and Serrano, chorizo and salamis that have been sourced from producers steeped with history. Complemented with our unique cheese offering and all accompanied with homemade bread, pickles and chutneys.

Our Head Chef Joe Taylor and his team also produce a high quality modern menu, based on charcuterie practices such as brining, smoking and curing. We aim to make everything on our menu from scratch including curing our own bacon, baking our own bread and stuffing our own sausages to give each product maximum flavour.


We are open Tuesday to Friday for Lunch 12pm - 2:30pm and Dinner 5pm - 9pm. (Until 9:30pm Friday)

We open on Saturdays for Breakfast 10am - 12pm, Lunch 12pm - 2:30pm and Dinner 5pm - 9:30pm.

A traditional Sunday Lunch is served each week from 12 - 3:30pm.

You are invited to our house for dinner "The Curing House" where we all love food!
