A great venue for all beer drinkers where a host of international ales are available for tasting! Good pub grub also available in a friendly and relaxed atmosphere.

I usually visit the Head of Steam whenever I am in Durham for a pre-train meal and drink. The food is tasty and good value, especially the pizzas which are reduced to £4 in the early evening during the week. The beer selection is excellent, ranging from cheap Real Ales to pricey, but very tasty American and Belgian bottles.

Popped in the Head of Steam for a couple of beers before going elsewhere to eat. Very interesting bar with a great atmosphere and a terrific selection of beers on tap and bottled. Particularly good if you like Belgium beer. We did not eat here but the food looked good from what we saw. Will go again next time I... More

If you look down the list of restaurants in Durham, the ones that are more like bars, thing one is one of the better ones, bit of a surprise because we went to many better ones, scruffy staff, no atmosphere, average

We had Sunday dinner and it was fabulous. The pork belly was lovely and there was plenty of it. The meals were reasonably priced and of course you can have a fantastic drink to accompany your food.

A bar with a relaxed vibe which serves food until around 8 on weekdays, they do two all you can eat challenges too, if you dare to take them on! The drinks selection is brilliant if you are a non drinker and my beer loving friends were very impressed with the beer and ale selection. The staff were a delight... More
