“Great Beers!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 April 2014

A hidden gem this little beer heaven is well worth looking out for. Loved the whole vibe of the place, such a wide choice of great beers and the staff were friendly and knowledgeable. The food is good too, as previously mentioned the portions are very generous! My husband hasn't stopped talking about his delicious pulled beef sandwich!

“lovely pub”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 April 2014 via mobile

We came across this pub thanks to TripAdvisor and I'm so glad we went, it was happy hour so food while we were there so I had a pepperoni pizza for £3.95! It was lovely one of the best I've had. Such a wide range of beers too for all the ale lovers plus Rekordalig on tap which you dont come across very often! I will definatly come again when I visit Durham again!

Knowledgable staff help to guide you through the unsurpassed selection of Belgian beers. This is a Mecca for the Belgian connoisseur and well worth a visit.

“Love this pub!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 March 2014

Love this pub! Stopped in Durham while travelling between locations and came here based on reviews – absolutely lives up to reputation. Has a bit of a rock theme to it, loads of interesting things on the walls and window sills to look at. Staff really friendly and the portion sizes MASSIVE! Highly recommend the wild boar burger with hand cut chips. Awesome.

“Touch of class”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 March 2014

Cracking venue -nice inside and if you have the weather awesome to sit outside. All of the bar staff are friendly and you get a warm welcome no matter if you are there just for a few cold ones or for a meal. Food is delicious and cooked fresh (it puts any of your Yates or Lloyds to shame). If you're feeling brave you could try the pizza or burger challenge - good luck with that!

I'm biased because I have either drinks or lunch here twice a week at least but for me one of the best pubs in Durham.
