Filming is already underway on a second series of the show, and a select number of SAFC fans were given a glimpse at potential trailer footage at a special screening, held at the Stadium of Light at the end of last year.

Blacks Corner owners Jonny Dryden and Chris Lowden said they were honoured and humbled to be chosen as a filming location for the second series.

"Exposure on an international stage such as Netflix is very humbling but really pushes our team here to even better levels of service and quality at our very unique building and concept," said Chris and Jonny.

Chris and Jonny said Blacks Corner had been chosen for a number of photo shoots and other events by media outlets and brands after being runner up in Northern Design Awards and nominated for an international category at the Bar & Restaurant Design Awards last year.

"We’ve held a number of private events for SAFC and a couple of the players, so we would hope, as always, word of mouth and conversation around the food we produce and the British farms we work with draws interest from far and wide," they said.
