The food was nice. The salted caramel and chocolate tart was very good! I would definitely recommend it. £5 for the size of the dessert was pricey though. They had a good selection of flavoured ciders. The atmosphere was very welcoming. Candles on all the tables made it romantic. The furniture was all a bit quirky but looked really good.... More

Stayed at the Garden House for two nights in late Feb 2014. Stayed in room 3 which was huge, spotlessly clean with very comfy bed. Room was a bit cold when I arrived but with two easily controlled radiators was very soon toasty warm. Staff all very pleasant. Great location being just a short walk from the station and within...

We came up to Durham at the end of February 2014 to attend the induction of the new Bishop of Durham. The Garden House Inn is as ideal location as it is just on the outskirts of the city with an easy walk into town and the railway station. If you dont fancy walking there is a choice of buses... More

Fantastic stay only one problem busy main road, windows not sufficient enough to keep noise down. Would stay again though. Staff couldn't so enough for you and even catered for gluten free and dairy free diet. THANK YOU.

Room was comfortable, shower was difficult to work and maintain a normal temperature! Not the best night sleep for a light sleeper was awoken very early by the traffic passing by outside the room. The bed was ok, for 2 tall people we could have done with a bigger bed, but it was ok. Breakfast on the morning was a... More

Pub is smaller than expected but had a cosy feel inside, staff were all very pleasant and helpful. We were given rooms 3 & 6, rooms 3 is 10 times better than room... More

Had a very comfortable stay in Feb 2013, having paid in advance by credit card over the phone. When we left, we were told the payment had not gone through, so we paid by credit card again (£570 as there were seven of us).When I discovered through my Barclaycard bill that I had in fact been charged twice, I contacted...

Stayed here on a Saturday night. Very friendly staff who parked our car for us as there was no spaces in the carpark when we arrived. Lovely cosy pub which was quite busy when we got back later in the evening. Room was nice with biscuits and water with the tea making facilities and toiletries in the bathroom. Everywhere was...

Booked the family room 5 for just the two of us. Two double beds. Generous sized room and large bathroom with over bath electric shower. Lovely and warm. One radiator we couldn't alter the temperature. So we had the window open all night to counteract. Lovely thick bath towels. Plenty of hot water. The room looked recently decorated. Everything very... More
