We stayed on New Years Eve. We had the spacious family room, came with plenty of tea/coffee making facilities, biscuits & bottled water. Very comfortable bed. Very clean & well looked after. The staff were very friendly & helpful. The shower wasn't brilliant but it did the job. Ideal for the City centre, only about 10 mins walk. The breakfast... More

We stayed here one night with our daughty and had a really cosy family rrom. The webiste shows pictures of really nouveau cusine food but we had some amazingly huge and fabulous portions of tempura brocolli, deep fried cauliflower and cod and chips. We couldn't stop raving about how great the food was. Worth a stay for the food alone.... More

Booked family room, pleasantly surprised for price, spacious, lovely towels, breakfast included but no one mentioned fact it was continental. This was a disappointment but overall lovely place to stay if your heading for central durham. Lovely atmosphere in pub in evening. Would recommend :)

For too long Bistro 21 has been the place to go for serious tasty well cooked food in Durham and then the glamour of molecular gastronomy came in a couple of guises. Fadish! The garden house tailors both the classic with the contemporary seamlessly. Always bold with their ideas they always deliver. Well done to the team and the innovative... More

Visited this with family and their dog. There were 4 adults, a teenager and our toddler grandaughter who was asleep when we arrived. Was quickly shown to a table which was ample for our group. Looked at the (Sunday) menu no children's choice - just a small meal option at half the price - decided to order her a chicken... More

Decent inn. Well situated for a short walk to durham centre. Great food and service at a reasonable. Would stay again at the gardenhouse. It could do with a freshen up but the room was clean tidy and comfortable. Excellent ales in a unique pub.

I've been here many times. Cracking food, great beer. Warm welcome, totally love the place. Open fires make it especially lovely when it's cold in Durham. A great mix of pub classics, snacks, and quality cask ales, as well as having some decent parking as well.

Our room at the Inn was very spacious and well equipped. Up a fairly narrow staircase but this did not pose a problem with our luggage. The room overlooked the North Rd which was quite noisy in the evening and early morning but was very quiet during the night. The windows could be opened for fresh air but of course,... More
