    Gastro-pub tucked away in the heart of durham but with it's own ample parking (which is a rarity in Durham). Our menu was restricted due to Covid but we ate well and spent most of the afternoon in pleasant surroundings with attentive service

    We were served quickly,their was little real Ale choice and the lathers were also limited.. The starters were lovely, I had Thai Crab Cakes, my wife had Beef Chilli Nachos with sour cream. This was a huge portion for a starter. We both had Curry options my Chickpea and potato curry could have been named Potato and Chickpea as it was top heavy with Potato The atmosphere despite two larger parties was subdued. They were operating a one way system for entry and exit ... Meal was okay and we left full

    Came down for a bite to eat Sunday lunch time. Service was good but the food was terrible. Chips weren’t the normal home made ones we’ve been used too, we ordered an extra bowl of the chips but we were disappointed as they were dry and tasted of cardboard. The whole meal was diabolical.

    Prob worst food I have had for a while, Venue lovely, car park easy, service was flaky and certainly had not got the grip of Covid, no sign in, paper menus , plus as food waitress , real poor, complained about re heated chips and pie being inedible, retort was do you want me to warm the chips up ! No they are yesterdays Chips and as the Managers Son was biting on the next table I may have expected more, really poor, but nice venue for a drink just dont bother with the food , rubbish

    Efficient, pleasant staff. Meals came quickly were well presented and hot. Wasn’t busy due to the time I visited on a Sunday (4.15) but could also be due to the current circumstances. I didn’t realise until my meal came that because I didn’t specify I was served a standard meal which was a large serving. Definitely recommend 😊

    Very quiet despite it being a Sunday. Could not fault the Sunday lunch I cleaned my plate, which I don't normally do, but I just couldnt stop eating it!! It was delicious. The veg was cooked perfect, not sloppy or overcooked. Every aspect of thy meal has flavour. I will defo be back.

    Restaurant, location and service from staff was great. They were very friendly. Food is very poor though. Just warmed up food chain quality. This could be a great City Centre pub/restaurant if they upped their game with the food quality. With so much competition customers expect better quality. Unfortunately until food quality improves, we wouldn’t return.

    I received a warm, friendly welcome on arrival. I opted for the steak pie, chips and peas and they happily changed the peas on the menu from garden to mushy. Good pub grub. The place was spotless and all Covid-19 procedures were followed.
