We booked the accommodation on line and traveled to Durham by train for the Christmas market. The walk from the station was only about 10 minutes and although there was an up hill stretch it certainly was not difficult to walk up, even when pulling our suitcase. We were met in the pub bar by a pleasant young lady who...

This is a lovely traditional cozy pub with rooms. The bedroom was large, bed comfy and free tea/coffee/water. The location is great a short down the hill into town, slow steady walk back up the hill The breakfast was complimentary and was excellent, best scrambled eggs ever. Highly reccomend

Not in the city center so not too busy - not so far out that you can't get there. The food is amazing - I mean really amazing. I've had most things on the menu and they were all good. And the service is (almost always) fantastic. Some staff are just excellent. Is it nice weather? Sit in the conservatory...

We've eaten here a few times since the chef and team from Bistro 21 moved here when it closed and without a doubt they serve the best food in Durham! There were teething troubles with service (as earlier reviews show) when word started to get out about the quality of the food but everything run's like clockwork now, (6 of...

Fantastic family lunch for my mum's 80th birthday on Saturday 10th Dec. We were a party of 16 and the service, atmosphere and welcome from the staff were only topped by the outstanding food. Nothing was too much trouble, our waiter was attentive without being intrusive and we were served quickly and smoothly. The food was delicious, different and beautifully...

We had our first visit to the Garden House Inn last weekend, first impressions were all positive. The conservatory was a really nice area to eat, and the pub was welcoming. The food was of a really high standard, I enjoyed my steak, and my husband tried pheasant for the first time. Both meals were delicious, my triple cooked chips...

Been many times to the restaurant but decided to try out the hotel as well. Loved our stay, staff were very helpful with taking us to our room and the young man carried our luggage since I have back problems. Bed was comfortable and rooms were spotless. Breakfast in included in the price, and like the food in the restaurant,...

This Gastropub was recommended for dinner by the B and B where we were staying, and we had an excellent meal. The service was attentive, and the food excellent, imaginative, and slightly unusual. I had the stone bass which was new to me, and was imaginatively cooked, and beautifully presented. The food was reasonably priced. For a Monday evening the...

We had the famous scotch egg, lobster sandwich, salmon salad and the cheese croquettes. All very tasty and well prepared. Portions are generous enough. The interior is as you expect from a traditional pub. I can recommend the garden house inn.
