County Durham DH1
Durham City’s first micropub opened December 2015, offering real ales and ciders straight from the cask, alongside a small range of bottled beers, wines, spirits, quality soft drinks, tea and coffee. Locally-sourced pork pies and vegan pies are also available.
Four ever-changing local and national ales are on offer, with a dark beer always available. No draught lager is sold, but bottles of Allendale Adder are available.
With no music or TVs in the pub, the “back to basics” approach allows the emphasis to be on conversation. Slightly larger than the average micropub, seating is split across three areas, with tall stools and large benches in the main room, a snug area to the rear with fixed bench seating, and an upstairs room (also available to hire) with cafe-style tables and chairs. Two rocking chairs by the large windows in the main room are highly sought after – just remember to stop rocking before taking a drink!
2-pint carry outs are available on all draught products, and larger quantities (18/36/72pints) are available to order. Opening times may vary slightly in the initial stages of trading.
