Finbarr's is easy walking distance from the city centre (Framwellgate side) and not far from the station. Tucked away, you'd perhaps mistake it for a pub-hotel, but the beautifully appointed restaurant is immediately appealing. The menu, both a la carte and fixed price (the latter was fantastic value) is not over-bearing with choices, but making a choice is difficult. I really wanted to sample the three dishes we had for lunch. We had a quiet Saturday long lunch, and so the service was duly attentive but discreet. The food was perfectly cooked and presented, with ample portions--quite delicious. I don't doubt that we'll be back regularly whenever in Durham. Full marks.
