Went here for my birthday. Food was amazing m. You could tell that the chef loved his job as so much effort and love had gone into preparing the meal for us. The scallops were exquisite as was the steak. Would recommend

In the nice area of town, hidden underground servesEnglish food with an interesting twist, original combination of spices and herbs, tried Oysters Rockefeller and duck breast, both very well prepared, good selection of wines and friendly service.

During a business trip I visited Durham and found this little place in the basement in the city center. Only room for approximately 10 guests. Friendly service and nice food. Not the cheapest place in town.
