Taste Durham

Durham's bars and restaurants

If you’re in search of a cosy pub for a great lunch, looking for a fine-dining experience or simply want to refuel after a busy day sightseeing, let the Taste Durham mark guide you. 

Taste Durham The food quality sign is proudly displayed by more than 60 food and drink businesses across the county. From grabbing a bite to eat at one of Durham’s award-winning attractions, to stopping off to refuel at a pub or café, or dining out at one of the county’s delicious restaurants, many of which are in stunning hotels, be sure to look out for the Taste Durham mark. And for a tasty place to stay, check out our list of B&B’s that have a Taste Durham award.

Graded to a national standard, the Taste Durham accreditation is given in recognition of consistently good service, comfort, cleanliness, quality of meal and in addition, championing of local produce.

Wherever you see the taste Durham mark you can rest assured you are choosing a quality establishment.

This October the annual Taste Durham Month celebrates Durham food and drink at its best, with a host of events and activities taking place. There’ll be special menus featuring seasonal and local produce at eateries across the county, and don't miss the tasty offers to get your taste buds tingling.
