Our Story

Locally sourced ingredients, ethical approach to food and furnishings, and fiercely proud of our heritage.

Nestled in the heart of Middlesbrough at 176 Linthorpe Road, we aim to bring something a little different than the usual to you. Bespoke and classic cocktails, Full Barista coffee menu, Modern British Cooking from breakfast throughout the day, to Tapas style by night.

We offer a relaxing and enjoyable experience in an atmospheric unique bar and kitchen. All encased in an interior designed to combine lux and quirk, whilst still celebrating the area’s industrial past. A place where the food, drink, soundtrack and decor are aligned as one.

Ta Moko dares to be different..and we make no apologises for that.

Our Food

“The success of British cooking depends on the very best ingredients being treated in the very simplest way and when that happens, I think there is nothing to beat it in the whole world”.

- Rick Stein

We echo this sentiment every single day. Yorkshire Beef, Durham Cheeses, fine Moorland Lamb, Free Range Teesside eggs, and of course the freshest fish from Whitby are the staples of what we serve.

Our ethos is simple, but not easy…
Food that travels less...  tastes better

Our Drinks

“Drink wine. This is life eternal. This is all that youth will give you. It is the season for wine, roses and drunken friends. Be happy for this moment. This moment is your life.”

- Omar Khayyám

We take our drinks just as seriously as our Food at Ta Moko. So whether it’s the latest in craft ales, knowing our flat white from our latte, or the expresso martini with the girls on a weekend; we know how much it matters.

Tremendous grub, best food on Linthorpe road.
Pleasant atmosphere and background tunes, bar staff great too.
As long as I’m in Boro, I’ll head to Ta Moko.

Kathryn Swainson

I love this place , the music is fab and I enjoy sitting here either alone just grabbing a coffee or with my partner on the espresso cocktails. My favourite is steak and duck eggs, but the burger meal I had last week was unreal.
