Pubs in County Durham in general Reviews
Newest Review: ... Cocks is very central but on the border of North Road and plays 80's musics but has always had a reputation as being rough and scrappy, however the decor has been improved but its definitely a place for locals. There are some small pubs around a 5-10 minutes walk away from the centre that are nice to enjoy a pint such as The City (round the corner from the Swan, The Dun Cow (past the Royal County Hotel) which sells lovely Toasties and is nice for a quiet drink. The Bridge (under the railway viaduct at North Road is nice and did have a reputation for nice meals, I'm not so impressed now. Chains There are 2 Whetherspoons bars that sell you... more

Durham City is full of bars thanks to a recent regeneration of the Millenium Square and to some degree, North Road aka 'the dark side'. It has a mixture of traditional pubs, trendy bars and secret hideaways.

I visit The Black Bull in Old Shotton quite regularly. My fiance's parents are regulars there and introduced me to it! This is an absolutley fabulous pub!

This is something I find is missing from a lot of public houses! The drinks are not too expensive, never get dirty glasses, or short changed or anything like that. Also when there are football matches there are crowds who are not there to fight, but to have fun! The atmosphere is great!!! And last of all I have to say the meals they ... Read the complete review
