“Clean, welcoming inn, 5 mins from Durham City”
Reviewed September 24, 2006

The Seven Stars is a lovely roadside inn just 5 minutes drive out of Durham city centre. It is situated on a regular bus route (55/56/57 Arriva North East) which costs £1.20 single currently.

The pub is in a lovely old building and is a bit of a maze. The rooms are beautifully decorated and are all ensuite. We paid £65 per room per night for bed and breakfast, which was considerably better value for money than many of the pricy alternatives in the city centre. Each room had a TV and tea/coffee making facilities, and the usual bathroom toiletries were also provided.

The pub serves a selection of well-kept real ales and has been awarded the Cask Marque. There is also a nice restaurant with a good range of home cooked food on offer. The breakfast was excellent, all freshly cooked by the friendly cook, with local 'herby' sausages, decent eggs, black pudding etc.

All in all, a place I would thoroughly recommend when staying in Durham!
