One of Durham’s newest pubs, The Kingslodge Inn has attracted the attention of many North East Bloggers over the past few weeks as it establishes itself as the new place to dine in Durham City.
Food, lifestyle and travel bloggers from across North East England have visited and this is what they had to say:
- “The Inn is such a stunning building, if you didn’t know it was in Durham city it would look like it had just been pulled out of the picturesque countryside. … I would most definitely visit the Kingslodge Inn again, the food was brilliant and the service really topped off our evening.” Ruth Bracegirdle
- “The Kingslodge Curry of the day which was Thai Red and it looked incredible! It didn’t disappoint. The portion size was absolutely huge. I’m not complaining at all because it was amazing, packed full of flavour, creamy and coconutty with just the right amount of kick. The chicken was succulent and the green vegetables were very fresh and crunchy and complimented the curry perfectly. The hand cut chips, rice and naan breads were all gorgeous too and were the perfect accompaniment to the dish.”Mother Hermit
- “My cheesecake was pretty amazing; albeit huge I managed to polish off almost the whole thing. I loved the presentation, but I loved the taste even more; it was so creamy and chocolatey, I would definitely recommend trying it if you get the chance.”Tor, That’s Peachy Blog
- “First impressions count and from the outside the Inn has it all, beautifully kept gardens, hidden seated areas which scream warm summer nights and a stately feel to the whole building. Inside was just as impressive with shabby chic, tartan style furniture and fittings with a real home style feel to the decor. Comfort is obvious yet class and taste spill from every room. Quiet and beautiful surrounding certainly make this the future choice for our family nights out!”Debbie, Country Heart and Home.
- “The Kingslodge Inn, Durham, is a great dog friendly pub … All of the food is prepared from fresh, something that you can really taste, no reheated microwavable meals here just great cooked food, which are as much a feast for the eyes as they are for the tummy.”Mandy Charlton
The Kingslodge Inn, on Waddington Street in Durham City, is situated on the edge of Flass Vale. It occupies the site of the former Kingslodge Hotel and Finbarrs restaurant, creating a pub with rooms and with its casual dining offers the perfect place to eat, drink, stay and explore the historic city of Durham.
The Kingslodge Inn menu has traditional classic pub fayre dishes but served with a modern twist. Like many gastropubs and bistro’s, it offers casual dining, where customers will have a relaxed, informal dining experience, ordering at the bar before their high-quality home-cooked food is prepared to order and served to their table.
The current menu offer breakfasts from full English to an omelette, Eggs Benedict to a bacon or sausage sandwich between 7.30am and 10.30 – also open to non-residents. Lighter fare is available from 10.30m onwards with mains, starters and desserts available from 12noon until 9pm. Mains include Steak and Ale Pie, Fish and Chips, Burgers, Steaks, Salads, Gammon, Salmon, Pan Haggerty and other vegetarian dishes as well as a Children’s Menu.
Located just a stone’s throw from the heart of historic Durham city yet surrounded by the peaceful woodland of Flass Vale, The Kingslodge Inn has all the benefits of a city-centre location but with a laid-back, relaxed vibe and convenient, free parking on-site.
The Kingslodge Inn is now part of the multi award-winning Inn Collection Group family of northeast pubs with rooms. The fast-growing hospitality specialist also owns The Lindisfarne Inn near Holy Island, The Bamburgh Castle Inn at Seahouses and The Hog’s Head Inn at Alnwick, The Seaton Lane Inn near Seaham, and The King’s Head Inn at Newton under Roseberry in North Yorkshire; as well as the recently opened The Commissioners Quay Inn in Blyth.
