We had to visit Durham and not knowing that area of town we decided to pop into The Garden House for a quick drink whilst waiting for our appointment time. What a lovely little find. The furniture is quirky and very interesting , just loved the cushions. The 'shabby chic' beams enhanced the ambiance. We took our drinks to a...

Had an overnight stay in The Garden house, in order to visit the towns Cathedral and Castle. It was ideally placed for this purpose being only a short walk away from town centre. First impressions were very poor on arrival, with no one to meet us or even serve a drink at the bar. We were eventually checked in to...

Went for a Mother's Day Sunday lunch as was the only place I could find available, on one vegetarian option of a starter and main course and it was soup and risotto. No option of a roast which is what I came for. Also the portion sizes for vegetarians were tiny compared the other plates of flood I saw. Would...

We stayed over here for just the one night. Three of us in a family room for £95 including breakfast which was very hearty. For the money this is a great place to stop over. It's not the ritz but for that sort of money you cannot expect it to be. It's clean , tidy and the staff are very...

Visited as a family of 4 in between Christmas and new year. The food was gorgeous, great quality and cooked to perfection. Had numerous visits to the garden house and the food and service has never faulted. Really friendly staff, always a warm welcome.

We popped in to the Garden House for a meal with my husband, children and Father (who is a very fussy eater). 3 of us had the Pepper Steak which was cooked to perfection, one Son had the chicken burger and the other had the venison stew. The venison stew was apparently to die for. Dad opted for the fish...

Stayed here for one night. Room was good heating was playing up but they had supplied electric heaters which were more than adequate. Friendly staff. Bar area was great as was the food . Not a massive choice (which is a good move) but food was brilliant & plentiful. Continental breakfast was great also . Would stay again definitely

The first of our party headed to the pub at 1500 and began spending money. Others then joined and our party of 10 ordered some food. We were having a lovely time until 1900 when the barmaid came and informed us we needed to be put by 2000. Upon questioning she said she had placed a sign on the table...

I visited tonight and had the best chicken burger I've ever had! This is a huge thing because I constantly find fault everywhere I go but for once I could not fault the food or atmosphere! Well done 😃 we will defo be back and can't wait to try Sunday roast.

Was a bit worried when I realised my friend had booked us into an inn rather than an hotel. However, we had a lovely room with crisp fresh linen, plenty of space in the room and everything we needed. Heating was very good, easy to control. A large bathroom was a plus, even if the shower was a bit dated....
