10 Places Every Durham Student Needs To Eat and Drink This Year
For when you’re procrastinating, writing an assignment, hungry, or just want to have some fun, there’s always a place to go in Durham.
1. The Swan & Three Cygnets
This glorious Durham favourite dishes out pints starting at a mere £1.34. 🙌
2. Flat White Kitchen (FWK)
This egg-and-avocado haven is especially loved by those with Instagram. Their specials include sourdough avocado toast, blueberry stacked pancakes, and brick lane bagels with braised salt beef, English mustard and house pickles. Never has food tasted so good.
3. The New Inn
This cosy pub often proves too hard to resist for those tired Hill students passing to and from lectures, especially when a game is on.
4. North Road Foods
It’s impossible to escape North Road’s fruit stall without buying 12 apples, 6 tangerines, and 2 tubs of blueberries for £1.99 after watching the crazy fruit guy’s antics from across the road.
5. Any of Durham’s 16 college bars.
The dangerously cheap £1.60 pints at these unique drinking dens ensure you get wasted for under a tenner. Even better, you can try the full almost-impossible Durham bar crawl if you really want to test yourself.
6. Urban Oven
The Holy Grail of drunk food, where students stumble away dripping in grease, desperately trying not to drop their cheesy chips or killer kebabs.
Voted Europe’s worst nightclub, Klute is still going after 40 strong years. The toxic spirits and sticky floors test the resolve of those determined to stay until closing.
8. Jimmy Allens
Their signature Woodgate drink – triple vodka mixed with two WKD’s – for £4 forms the apocalyptic climax of almost any bar crawl. The best part of this nightclub is definitely the weird and wonderful cavernous rooms under the bridge.
9. The Library Yum Café
Go on then, I’ll just have one more muffin. I’m allowed because I’m doing work…
10. Tealicious Tearoom
Eating here is literally a rite of passage for Durham students. Whether you want a coffee or cake, you’re always guaranteed to find something absolutely tealicious.
