A SEAFRONT restaurant has new husband and wife bosses.

Martino’s, in Dykelands Road, Seaburn, is now part of the Shore Leisure Limited group, as is its sister venue in North Railway Street, Seaham.

In control are restaurateurs Gavin and Fiona Leng.

“I have been with Martino’s since its opening in 2006,” said Shore Leisure managing director Gavin, from Seaham.

“It seemed the natural progression for me to take over the two restaurants.”

The 41-year-old added: “We pride ourselves upon building strong relationships with our customers and the community.

“I am constantly asking our clients what they would like to see at Martino’s. That’s where the idea’s come from for our new offers and events.

“It’s the locals that keep us open. That’s why it’s vital to listen to what they have to say.”
