“Well worth a visit”
Reviewed 27 February 2014

We called in for a drink and something to eat in between sightseeing and at The Cathedral and admiring the castle. Very welcoming staff and good service, they even assisted with the pushchair up the steps. We ordered food and it was served quickly and it was very enjoyable. All in all a very pleasant visit and will definitely call again when we visit Durham.

“Fantastic Atmosphere and Pub Meal”
Reviewed 22 February 2014

First Trip to Durham and managed to find this little place as the weather turned. Warm and quaint with sweet little booths. Meal was well presented and was great for "Pub-Grub". Would strongly recommend and would not hesitate to return in the future.

“evening meal”
Reviewed 21 February 2014

hadn't visited Durham before and popped in here for a quick evening meal after a long journey-staff were very friendly and helpful-the menu is limited-we had house burgers and they were very good and reasonably priced.The atmosphere was comfortable and we passed a pleasant evening.

“Codfather the best fish and chips in town”
Reviewed 4 February 2014

I have been coming to Durham for 3 years now on business. The Tavern is a welcoming place that has intetesting beers and a varied atmosphere depending on when you go in. The CodFather is the best fish & chips in town.

“Great Pit Stop!”
Reviewed 30 January 2014 via mobile

After spending an hour wandering aimlessly around the shops we decided it was time for a re charging of our batteries. As soon as I approached the bar and saw draught Peroni I knew I had found the ideal place.
Then we decided to peruse the menu, my wife decided to try the Nachos with pulled pork and I was tempted into the burger with pulled pork.
The food was excellent, well presented and filling. The burger was absolutely spot on and certainly worth trying.
The staff are very friendly and the whole place has a relaxing feel to it. It was a difficult choice but we eventually decided not to abandon the car and shopping to spend the afternoon sat here.
Well worth a visit.
