When Great British food is done right, using quality ingredients that are in season, it will struggle to be beaten by other forms of cuisine. And, here at The Kingslodge Inn, we try to emulate this as much as possible on our wonderful menu. Our head chef and his team have worked tirelessly to develop an exciting range of dishes that are perfect for kick-starting your day in Durham city centre or for when you’re looking to celebrate a special occasion.

This dedication and commitment to seasonal ingredients make us one of the best value restaurants near Durham. Whether you’re staying with us in one of our stunning rooms, or you’re just popping in for a spot of lunch, we’re confident we have the dish, and the service, for you.

Delectable food is served throughout the day, from breakfast through to evening meals. From breakfasts fit for a king to light bites, lunches, evening meals, and daily changing specials showcasing local Durham produce, The Kingslodge Inn is the perfect eatery in Durham where you can come to enjoy delightful food.

As well as our food, our County Durham location is what makes our restaurant in northeast England so special. For those that enjoy alfresco dining, our wonderful beer garden is perfectly maintained, located right next to the Flass Vale Local Nature Reserve, and is the perfect place for a meal or one of our delicious sandwiches from our seasonal all-day menu. If the Great British weather is being its unreliable self, simply head indoors to cosier, more elegant surroundings in the form of our bar area.

Like a lot of restaurants in County Durham, we take Sundays very seriously. To mark this special day, we serve up tender slices of roast beef, turkey and honey-roasted gammon in our spacious dining area. These delicious home-cooked meals are served with all the trimmings and wonderful views of Durham City. And, to ensure that everyone who visits our modern yet traditional restaurant can enjoy their time with us at The Kingslodge Inn, we have a wide range of British dishes that are plant-based and vegetarian.

And, as if all that wasn’t enough, there will always be a selection of daily specials that our head chef will have crafted especially for your visit on that particular day. Each dazzling dish is dependent on the ingredients that are available on the day, which makes every visit feel new and exciting.
