Review on Seven Stars Inn

If you are feeling fit, you might fancy walking the couple of miles or so from the centre of Durham out to this gem of a pub nestling in the quiet village of Shincliffe.

Built in 1724, it still oozes character and history with its creeper-clad walls, red-painted wood panels and antique furnishings. One menu serves the bar and the separate green walled dining room and dishes are posted on chalkboards all around the place.

The line-up is a real mixed bag, taking in everything from tortillas and shepherd's pie to smoked haddock tart with spinach and poached egg, Thai crab cakes, Cajun-spiced chump of lamb with tomato and olive ragoût and sirloin steak on bacon, leek and mushroom fricassee with red wine jus. Finish with something like white chocolate and blueberry brûlée.

To drink there are North Country real ales, plus a well assembled collection of wines.
