Review on No 59 Old Elvet at Durham Marriott Hotel Royal County
A prime location right on the banks of the River Wear is one of the assets at this welcoming traditional hotel in the heart of Durham city. There are also views of the castle and cathedral from many of its rooms.
Located on the ground floor, No 59 Old Elvet at The Durham Marriott offers guests a traditional cuisine featuring expertly grilled meats and fish. The restaurant has both a classic and modern design with high-backed leather chairs set on oak flooring and modern artwork adorning the walls.
Typical offerings on the carte include smoked salmon served with sourdough chards and crème fraiche or shaved smoked chicken, apple slaw, radish and roasted walnuts among the starters. Main courses take in hake fillet, cream potato, broad beans and crispy pancetta or from the Grill there's an 8oz Barnsley chop, tomato fries, rocket salad and mint sauce, as well as the sustainable catch of the day for fish lovers. To finish enjoy desserts in the shape of chocolate tart, vanilla cream and chocolate shavings or crème brûlée, strawberries and shortbread.
