About Us

A few things you oughta know

Located a stones throw from Durham train station, the garden house inn is a charming 18th centaury coaching house serving seasonal food, great ales and extensive wines.

Our aim is to mix a traditional and authentic British pub/restaurant atmosphere with a cosy and relaxed environment to eat a menu of seasonal dishes freshly prepared and cooked by our team of chefs.

The Garden House was established in 2011.

Head Chef Ruari MacKay joined the Garden House October 2015, he is a passionate, talented creative chef who wanted to work with Owner Adrian Grieves to put the Garden House on the map, which he has certainly done!

“MacKay is a talented cook, with a light touch, classic technique & a sense of humour” – Secret Diner
