Not really a pub more like a few scattered rooms with chairs and tables and odd books around. People seem to “hang” and nobody bothers you. Best part is the beers and ciders which are unique and tasty, as opposed to the industrial scale brands...More

A fairly recent addition to Durham's list of pubs, but it very quickly became my favourite. Sited on the corner of Station Approach and North Road, it's very handy for the railway station. Constantly-changing selection of real ales and ciders, served directly from the cask....More
