Modern European | Durham, Durham

I often book a dinner at The Cellar Door for colleagues visiting Durham as part of work-related hospitality (both small and larger parties). It is one of a few places in Durham that offers the right kind of atmosphere for this sort of dining. The menus are usually interesting and innovative, although on the pricey side. The service is invariably excellent. The wine is very well selected in terms of both quality and variety. The portion size is just right, and the display fine. The cooking is, however, of somewhat patchy quality. There are items that are really well prepared (e.g. I have had lamb on several occasions which has been truly excellent). However, I have been struck by how many times there have been some quite elementary, yet pretty bad, flaws in the cooking (for example, potatoes or vegetables, bits of which were so burned they were inedible). I have on the whole not been convinced by the vegetarian dishes and would tend to go for meats. I have found the desserts to be of variable interest and quality (the one I had on this last occasion was really great and unusual, but some in the past have been a bit mediocre). Overall, when it comes to the cooking, the ideas are usually to be commended and the ingredients are always good, but the execution seems to be letting the side down (occasionally, but still more often than what one would expect of a restaurant that aims for a fine-dining experience).

The food we chose was all good quality and well cooked. Staff was polite and attentive. We would have liked more of an evening menu to give more choice than the lunchtime more casual dining experience. Will definitely return through the day but maybe not for an evening meal. More
