Staying in Durham for the weekend, visited this Wetherspoons twice, First was for afternoon snacks and drinks, the pub was very busy, but managed to find a table. Took advantage of the online ordering to avoid the long queues at the bar, which worked well. Staff looked stressed and were not the most friendly, but the food and drinks were good, and of reasonable value. Called in for breakfast the next morning, much quieter, and a choice of seats. Very friendly and helpful staff this time, breakfast was hot, delicious, and of good value. One of the better 'spoons in my experience.

Always like Wetherspoons and couldn’t fault the place when we came through the day.. returned at night and the table my partner and I and a few others had our drinks resting on got taken away from us and moved to the other side of the room.. for a bunch of new people to use for their drinks?! Not even a sorry.. Otherwise... cracking place

Thanks for the kind words. We do move furniture on certain evenings when expecting high crowd levels, but we do our best to accommodate all customers where possible. This does not appear to have happened in this case, please accept our apologies.

Visited on a busy Sunday after playing in a brass band competition in the gala theatre. Pub was really busy but food came quickly. Reasonable sized portions and we both cleared our plates. It is pub chain foid, which does mean frozen chips instead of fresh but hey if it tastes good and is charged at an appropriate price I'm happy. I had the steak&kidney pudding with chips and peas. My partner had the steak pie. Both packed with tender tasty meat. Plenty of gravy supplied too. For dessert I had the hot chocolate fudge cake and my hubby had an ice cream sundae. Only criticism is that ice cream appears to be served with all the desserts and I'm not a fan. They did swap mine for squirty cream when I asked but a choice of pouring cream with all the desserts would be nice.

Called in for lunch. Great staff, quick service, food could have been hotter though. Good value for money.
