I was served two crab cakes and a smattering of pea shoots for £6.00, when the spa day deal was supposed to include a snack luch.

Very upmarket for a hotel restaurant, good food, beautifully cooked with a wide choice of menu. Recommend for breakfast and evening meal. Can either have the set menu which is excellent value or the a la carte, also excellent wine list.

10/10 for quality of food.
Had the mussels to start - lovely creamy sauce.
Beer battered cod and chips for main was also cooked well and presented nicely.
Did not have a desert but there was a good choice.
If you avoid the steaks there are some good quality meals to be had for a reasonable price. My bill was £24 with 2 drinks, food was from the A-La-Carte menu.

One word: AMAZING!!!
Myself and my partner dined at this restaurant during our 1 night stay @ the Marriott Hotel. The 3 course meal was included as part of our package deal.
My partner had: Starter - Smoked Mackerel (including bread), Main - Duck leg with black pudding mash and red onions, Desert - Cheesecake.
I had: Starter - Tomato & basil soup (including bread), Main - Rump steak, thick-cut chips, tomato, mushroom and peppercorn sauce, Desert - Lemon meringue pie with toffee sauce.
All 3 courses were absolutely delicious and one of the nicest meals we have ever had.
The restaurant staff were so polite and courteous and we could not have asked for anything more from the service they provided.
This restaurant should be awarded 5 stars and we will definitely be returning on our next visit to Durham.
I think the meal prices would have been expensive if it wasn't included in our package deal, but we would have quite happily paid top prices for this excellent dining experience.
