I always stop at Bells when visiting Durham. It can get pretty busy, so be prepared to wait. Well worth it!

Had some lovely fish, chips & mushy peas. Both me and hubby thoroughly enjoyed. Lovely crispy batter. Fish was lovely and white and just broke away. Staff very friendly and helpful. Lovely place to go.

Ate there today. Had fish and chips. The fish was huge, batter was excellent. The chips were really good. Good va!ue The atmosphere was pleasant, the decor fresh pleasant and the service efficient without being intrusive. The toilets were spotless; always a good sign. I would recommend without hesitation.
