The Kingslodge Inn Pub
Whatever your choice of beverage, The Kingslodge Inn is the perfect pub in Durham city for relaxing with a drink in hand. We take pride in looking after our drinks the proper, old-fashioned way, which makes for a perfect pint of Durham’s finest.
At The Kingslodge Inn, we’re proud to say that our delightful staff work hard to ensure our cellar is at optimal conditions and our fridges are stocked to the brim with your favourite drinks. As one of many pubs in Durham, we know that nothing beats sipping on that perfect drink after a busy, but exciting, day of exploring everything that this fantastic, historic city has to offer such as Durham Castle, the Botanic Garden, which is south of the city, and Brancepeth Castle.
We’re delighted to support the local beer scene by serving local cask ales on a guest basis from nearby breweries around the Durham and Northumberland area. As well as these guest beers, we also have a selection of well-known lagers and beers such as Carling, Staropramen, and Guinness. We also serve up perfectly chilled ciders, bottled craft beers, gins, creative cocktails, and mocktails.
While other pubs in County Durham focus on the hustle and bustle of the city’s nightlife, we’re proud to take things a little slower. With cosy log fires, comfy sofas, high-back chairs, and stone-clad floors, The Kingslodge Inn pub near Durham city centre is the perfect escape if you fancy chilling out.
This slower pace, right on the edge of the city, is what attracts our guests who stay with us in our stunning accommodation. They get the beauty of the countryside, without having to drive for hours to local, nearby attractions in County Durham.
On a nice day, when the Great British weather is being kind to us, there are few nicer places to sip on a pint of cask ale or a chilled glass of wine than our beer garden. There aren’t many pubs near Durham city that can offer the stunning views that are available in our lovely pub garden.

Cask Ales, Lagers, and Ciders
A cold pint on a cold day is good, a cold pint on a hot day is great, in fact, a cold pint on any day is fantastic. Here at The Kingslodge Inn, we agree with this sentiment 100%, which is why we obsess over serving nothing but the best in lagers, ciders, and popular, hand-pulled cask ales that have been lovingly brewed by local breweries right here in our home city of Durham. And, because we have so many beers on rotation, we don't print full beer menus - instead, we prefer you to enjoy the surprise of discovering your new favourite pint of real ale.
Fancy a Glass of Wine?
The Kingslodge Inn’s well-stocked cellar brings you wines from around the world. Available by the glass or bottle, there are wines to pair with all dishes and to suit every taste. Our team is educated on the wine we offer, which means we're able to talk to you and advise on the range of wines that we have, as well as on what might pair well with our excellent food menu.
Great wine can elevate any moment and we never tire of seeing loved ones and friends getting together over a fantastic bottle, be that paired with something from our delicious homemade food menu or not. To ensure our generous staff can serve you with only the finest wine, we have crafted an extensive, hand-picked selection of wines. Some of our favourites include the French easy-drinking Lodez Chardonnay, which is filled with ripe peaches and vanilla oak. And, for fans of red, the Canyon Road Merlot is a hit amongst us and our pub customers.
Enjoy One of Our Incredible Cocktails
While we may look and sound like a traditional inn, that doesn't mean we don't know how to party! We've enjoyed many incredible nights with our guests as they've enjoyed a cheeky cocktail or two from our menu, crafted by expert cocktail makers. We've opted for a truly inventive list of cocktails, with our favourite being the Cuba Libre - a simple yet powerful recipe that is packed with Captain Morgan’s Rum, freshly squeezed lime, all topped off with Pepsi.
All our cocktails are made to order and are the perfect way to start, or end, an evening.
How About Something That Sparkles?
Celebrating staying with us? Have a special announcement to make? Or just like drinks that sparkle? Whatever your reasoning behind popping a cork, we have a simple, quality selection of Prosecco and Champagne. Choose from a refreshing Chio Prosecco that is light and crisp, or go all out and enjoy a bottle of Ayala Brut Majeur Champagne - which is, incidentally, the younger sibling of Bollinger! Both of our selections are a great way to start your holiday with us or get you and your family in a party mood.
We've brewed a recipe for success
There is a great deal to do in Durham and, after a busy day taking in the sights and sounds of the city centre, a cup of tea or artisan coffee is the only thing that's going to hit the spot. And, as northerners, we know the importance of a good hot drink!
As a result, we've worked hard to offer a wide range of hot drinks from flat whites and cappuccinos to good old-fashioned cups of tea!
So, be sure to catch up with friends over a pot of tea or aromatic barista coffee. Or why not try something different with our Ringtons speciality loose leaf tea? There is something for everyone at The Kingslodge Inn in the heart of beautiful Durham.
