Been many times to the restaurant but decided to try out the hotel as well. Loved our stay, staff were very helpful with taking us to our room and the young man carried our luggage since I have back problems. Bed was comfortable and rooms were spotless. Breakfast in included in the price, and like the food in the restaurant,...

This Gastropub was recommended for dinner by the B and B where we were staying, and we had an excellent meal. The service was attentive, and the food excellent, imaginative, and slightly unusual. I had the stone bass which was new to me, and was imaginatively cooked, and beautifully presented. The food was reasonably priced. For a Monday evening the...

We had the famous scotch egg, lobster sandwich, salmon salad and the cheese croquettes. All very tasty and well prepared. Portions are generous enough. The interior is as you expect from a traditional pub. I can recommend the garden house inn.

We came here without booking and were able to get a table although it was full for a Wednesday evening. The service was friendly and the food excellent. The only complain't was the wait for our food to arrive and then another wait to order pudding.

Loved our stay...given a lovely large room, very clean & comfortable. The food in the pub was of a very high standard...only quibble..all the tables reserved...no where to have a quiet drink. WiFi not good in the bedrooms..breakfast very tasty. Staff were very helpful & friendly.

We eat at the attached restaurant twice during our stay, the food is exceptional. Locally sourced and brilliantly cooked all for a reasonable price, what more can you ask for?! A beer and a couple of the bar snacks in front of the log fires ( I would personally recommend the korean pork and the haggis scotch egg) are the...

There was four of us went and we all had a lovely weekend. Excellent food and the staff fantastic, so friendly and attentive. Rooms very clean, a little dated but very comfortable. Only five minutes walk from train station but lots to see and do in Durham with the cathedral and castle etc.
