Durham pubs

by Ruthy2001

I'm planning a reunion here in the summer and as we are all coming from different locations wanted to suggest a good pub to meet in when we arrive.

Can anyone recommend a good traditional pub in the heart of durham (or somewhere that is easy to find) Many thanks Ruthy

There is a Brew Pub in Raleigh I was at last year. They have a back room that can hold private functions up to 100. It has easy access to the main pub also.
Name Chesapeake Bay Brewing Co.

I think she means Durham, England. I stopped at a nice one called "Fighting Cocks" that fit the bill you mentioned. Don't know the exact location but it is in the heart of the that fine city. Long menu of pub grub too.
Cheers,
Sam

All below are city centre pubs.

Ignore the idiot that said the Fighting Cocks! Also, forget Yates's, The Saddle Market, Coach and Eight.

Varsity (inc. sofa to lounge on), Hogshead, Swan and Three Signets (outdoor seating) , Scruffy Murphys, O'Neills and Jimmy Allens are all ok. And the smallest pub in Durham, The Dun Cow is worth a visit even just for a pint.

For good food at a reasonable price go to The Court Inn!!

I hope this helps

Regards
Andy

Re: Re: Durham pubs

Ruthy asked fro traditional. What's traditional about chain pubs like Hogshead or Scruffy Murphys?

:)

The Dun Cow, I think, is the one I know. If it is then it's very nice. Or was...

Re: Re: Durham pubs

by Jigmonkeyuk

Excuse me for breathing!

Doesnt everyone know what to expect from certain pub chains?

The reason I mentioned pubs that are part of a chain was to make here aware of what pubs were in Durham.

Really traditional but *** are: The Woodman, Travellers Rest, Big Jug,
Market Tavern, Saints, Shakespeare, The Angel, Elm Tree, The Bridge, Kings Lodge, Colpitts.

Anyway judge for yourself pedent!

Re: Re: Durham pubs

by Ruthy2001

Thanks guys - didnt realise I would spark such debate! I did mean Durham England and will go for one of the more traditional ones - thanks everyone! I like the idea of the smallest pub - theres only about 10 of us and Im quite small myself so think I will like it!

Travel Tips for Durham

Castle & Cathedral

by steventilly

As seen from Framwellgate Bridge. They look beautiful sitting next to each other, overlooking the river.
To be honest, these are Durhams two main sights and really you have to see these before all else, but be sure to take a while to wander around the streets and take a look at what else it has to offer.

Tuck into a Stottie cake.

by sourbugger

Stottie cakes are a kind of large, flattish white loaf that you find in Durham and the rest of the North-East.

Only one of them makes for an excellent sandwich.

Several bakeries sell them, although branches of "Gregg's" the bakers are most often credited with reviving this regional bread on a commercial basis.

Durham Castle

by iwys

Durham Castle started as a fort on a mound, commissioned by William the Conqueror in 1072. It has a traditional motte and bailey design. For centuries it served as the residence of the Bishops of Durham, but since the 1830s it has been taken over by University College, Durham.
The Castle doubles as Hogwarts School in Harry Potter films.

Entrance is by guided tour only. The tours are usually given by a university don or student. Each tour lasts about 45 minutes.They take place on most days outside of term-time, and each day from Easter to 30th September. For other periods tours are on Monday, Wednesday and Saturday and Sunday afternoons.

Tour Prices
Adults £5, Senior Citizens, Students, Children up to 16 £3.50

Durham Castle - Norman Chapel

by iwys

The Norman Chapel, which lies underneath the main castle building is the oldest part of Durham Castle, dating from 1080. The Chapel was abandoned in the sixteenth century, when Tunstal's Chapel was built, but it was reopened as a chapel by the University in 1952.

Some of the carvings on the capitals of its six stone columns appear to be pagan and of Saxon origin. They include animals, foliage, hunters and grotesque masks. If ever a place had a haunted atmosphere, this is it. It is definitely not a place you'd like to be left alone in at night.

The Jail

by steventilly

HM Prison, Durham. Once the country's most secure prison housing some of it's most notorious criminals. One of these, John McVicar, became the first man to escape from the jail, back in the 1970's. His story was later made into a film starring Roger Daltrey (of The Who).
Nowadays it has been superceded by the even more secure Franklands Jail on the outskirts of Durham, but it still houses some notorious crimanals including Myra Hindley "The Moors Murderer".
