Just returned from the rose tree with the wife. Had a couple of pints and 2 cheese boards (£6.95 for cheese board) which was excellent value and one of the best we have had. We sat outside which in this heat at the minute was...More

having eaten on several occasions at the Rose Tree, I have never been disappointed by the quality of the food or the friendly welcome by the host and staff. Being a traditional pub, with no canned music, is a rare blessing these days.

The food is all home made including the chips, it was served hot and fresh, dogs are welcome, there was dog treats on the bar and even a menu for them. Very friendly staff who could not do enough for us. Highly recommend

Chose to eat lunch here before entering Durham city as it was accessible from main road, had ample parking and was welcoming to our four legged companion. Staff were very welcoming and the food was hot and tasty.

Left or right out of the car park, you can't go wrong with a wonderful walk down the riverbank. The question is whether to work up your appetite and finish with some great grub and a decent pint or graze and work it off. The...More
