We pride ourselves on being an independent traditional British Pub with a contemporary twist set in the heart of Durham City Centre.

We serve top quality food locally sourced, prepared fresh and cooked to order alongside an extensive range of drinks available to suit all preferences from local ales to fine wines, cocktails and premium spirits.

For something extra special we have our garden roof terrace. Voted one of the top 30 rooftop terraces in Britain according to The Times in August 2014. It boasts unrivalled picturesque views of Durham Cathedral, open all year round with state of the art heating and comfortable seating, it offers our guests a little bit of urban paradise you can’t find anywhere else in Durham.

So next time your in Durham looking for somewhere unique for a bite to eat or a casual drink, be sure to pop in and say hi. You’ll find our main entrance down the magical world heritage site staircase from Framwellgate Bridge leading to the Riverside. We look forward to welcoming you in to our pub.
