Travelled here for Sunday lunch after it was recommended and we weren't disappointed! We had a very warm welcome and were pleasantly surprised with the quality and ambience of the surroundings. We chose a trio of meats and they were beautiful. Also the Chardonnay was first class! Very friendly professional staff too. We will definitely return πŸ‘πŸ»

We have just returned from a fantastic 2 night stay here. The rooms were very clean and comfortable and the food there was amazing!! Durham was just a lovely 35min walk away and the bus service back drops you right outside the pub. We also ate at the other pub in the village The Rose Tree and the food here... More

Cheap enough me and my boyfriend went here for a one night break just the two of us, rooms were basic but nice. Food in the pub was outstanding would definitely recommend it! Quiet and cosy. Only downside is there is no phone network coverage but there is free WIFI. Would go here again.

clean ,comfortable, staff very friendly, food great and plenty of character. If you are looking for modern then this is the wrong place but if you are looking for value close to Durham then you will love this!

This is a traditional wayfarers pub with typical N.E. Of England warm welcome and very polite and friendly staff.Yes there are faults,but the bed was comfy and warm and the food and beer was tasty.but good value for money.its on a regular bus route into Durham,so for me it's worth another visit next time I pass that way.

Food and the service was excellent and very good value for money. Room was lovely and very clean. We will definitely be going back. Many thanks... More

We regularly eat at the Seven Stars, frequently with friends. The food, wine and staff are all first class. We often go for Sunday lunch and as we eat out on a regular basis, we haven't found anywhere to rival the food served at this charming pub.

Absolute Joke of a restaurant / hotel can only be described as one the worst experiences customer service wise the food was alright nothing too great.. the owner was who I think was called Noreen was rude obnoxious and very unpleasant. Place could do with a visit from the hotel inspector..

Ironically I'm writing this sat by a pool and have a decent view of the Burj Al Arab. A shining example of a seven star establishment, unlike the Sevens Stars in Shincliffe which is sadly at the other end of the spectrum. What could the Seven Stars learn from the Burj Al Arab? If you are going to impose a... More

Thank you for your review. Firstly may I say I think it is a little unfair to even try to compare a seven star hotel with a three star country inn. Your group all booked independently so we were not aware it was large group booking which we normally do not accept. This is the second review from your group... More
