Twin roomed older world pub heading east from the centre a couple of minutes walk past the Marriot Hotel. It has a Tudor style frontage and is squeezed between two larger buildings presumably built later than this hostelry. The small front room is cosy enough with its ales lined up first on the bar, but if this is busy you may want to head along the side alley and enter the rear room which has a more updated. but still traditional look and appeal to it. There’s another service area here so there’s no requirement to hit the front room first unless you want to eye up the ale selection.

Located just out from the centre of Durham. Traditional pub interior with a narrow aspect and low ceilings. Selection of ales abit restricted but the beer was well kept and it wasn’t busy.

Nice locals’ place. The selection was a little weak when we were there. But the house beer Castle was very gulpable! And the toasty I had was a tasty morsel.

A tiny hole in the wall and apparently one of the oldest pubs in the area. Serve some pretty decent beers in a great environment.

A pleasant enough pub but often a bit pricey, and with a slightly lacking selection of ales compared to other nearby venues. Often quieter than others and good for escaping the student hordes, bar the odd maudlin PG...

This pub is a must visit for anyone visiting Durham. There may only be three real ales on at a time but they are well-kept, and the pub itself is an unspoilt gem. Occasionally the Dun Cow can get packed with university sports teams but in the main locals and visitors alike enjoy this cosy, traditionally furnished pub. There were friendly locals and very pleasant staff on my visit and I would definitely return when next in Durham. Scoopers and tickers: Visit the Victoria for your scoops then come here for a good pint of either Castle Eden or any of two guests mainly from small to medium sized breweries.
