Called in yesterday evening following a pleasant walk round Durham. First time here and was greeted by pleasant staff who took my order promptly.

The food choice was excellent and very hot! The pub had a good atmosphere and the waitress staff were very attentive eventhough the place was busy and they were rushed off their feet. There was plenty of wine selection with the house wines being very reasonable. The portion sizes were substantial which meant I had to pass on the dessert... More

We had a choice of four roast meats, which were served in generous portions plus a good choice of vegetables, potatoes and sauces to accompany our food. The landlord was very hospitable... More
