“BEST PLACE TO EAT IN DURHAM”
Reviewed 5 August 2014

We have been to this restaurant many times and had great food and very helpful, friendly staff. The choice of food is very good and we always have a dessert. The view of Durham Cathedral is wonderful. Here's to our next visit.

“Great food and friendly service”
Reviewed 5 August 2014 via mobile

After being introduced to the delights of this restaurant by my grand daughter ( her favourite place to eat) I too have been enjoying many visits to the restaurant. Each visit I and my friends and family have been greeted in the most friendly and welcoming way. The food (i have tried many dishes) was excellent. I can see now why my grand daughter chooses this restaurant for both celebrations or family meals out. Thoroughly recommend!

“Terrible”
Reviewed 5 August 2014 via mobile

served a table but none of the staff knew about it. Tables which we were seated at were covered in food crumbs, as if it hadn't been cleaned. Communication poor with staff as had 3 members of staff ask to order drinks. When receiving food orders some were delayed and side orders missed off.
Won't be returning in a hurry at all.
