Top Rated Bars In Durham
by Andrew Bartlett
The Boat House
Some confusion about the name here, because it’s actually called The Boat Club. No doubt about the authenticity of this cocktail bar and eatery set in a 500 year old building on the river with views of Elvet Bridge. Have lunch watching the rowing boats, or at night listen to a wide choice of genres of music.
The Slug And Lettuce
Can get very busy in here, but the food is great and the service too. 2-4-1 cocktails make a great start to the evening. They will cater for any type of celebration and you can choose from their buffet selection or main menu, or if you wish they will create something bespoke just for you.
Ebony Champagne Bar
Only yards from The Gate Theatre Ebony Champagne Bar is open from 10.00 am until latte. Children allowed if accompanied until 6.00 pm. Light breakfasts, bar snacks, light lunches, and afternoon teas with or without champagne. We suggest with champagne is best!
