Never have I ever felt so welcome anywhere! Lord Trevor Davis and his family deserve the highest of praise for the spectacular hospitality and high quality food and drink that they offer. While on a short choir residency at Durham Cathedral, Court Inn was recommended to us by a former St. Chad's student. It was not until my fourth (fourth!)... More

Visited Saturday 30th September with family. The food was superb, huge portions, a great selection and not badly priced. The steak and ale pie was one of the best I have ever had and it was huge!! Would have given 5 out of 5 were it not for a chef who chose to give a waitress a right dressing down... More

On a recent group trip to Durham we stumbled upon the Court Inn and went back every night (and some lunches too) for food or drinks or both until we left town! From the moment we stepped in the door we were welcomed like family and the fun did not stop there. Everthing we ate was really delicious and beautifully... More

I visited The Court Inn in Durham last weekend and it was the worst choice we could have made. The food was very greasy and unappetising and the staff didn't seem to know what they were doing. The waitress noticed the food left on plates but didn't seem bothered when we said it wasn't very nice. They offered us a... More

As it was our first visit to Durham we didn't know where was good to go for a meal. We went for a drink in a local pub and asked the bar staff where they recommended and they both said straight away, 'The Court'. We decided to give it a try and were so glad we did, it was fabulous!... More

The Court Inn has changed immensely since I was at university in Durham about six years ago. What used to be a dingy dark pub, with cheap greasy meals is now a bright, vibrant, welcoming pub with fresh and delicious food. The menu is absolutely incredible, and we will definitely be revisiting to try some of the interesting options on... More
