The Coach and Horses is a traditional country pub situated on the outside of Durham City. We serve a full selection of draught beer, wine and spirits, along with a range of real ales. The pub has a lovely atmosphere with very friendly and helpful staff, making the pub a great place for every one. It is a family orientated pub, and with a play area on the premises, the children will never get board. To accommodate all customers who smoke, there is now a separate smoking area, along with a beer garden, so parents can relax with a refreshing drink in the summer months and watch the children play. With disabled access and a car park situated on the grounds they tend to the needs of all customers.
