Staff friendly, room and bed comfortable. Breakfast very good. No dinner served on Monday night so took taxi to sister hotel. Would be within walking distance for someone fit. We were only staying the one night on a trip north.

We visited at lunchtime on a Saturday. From the moment we arrived we were welcomed by the friendly staff. They couldn't have been nicer they were so helpful. The food was brilliant with a wide selection to choose from. Would definitely recommend and will be returning in the near future.

We were informed on booking that the restaurant would be closed on Monday evening, so we planned to drive into Durham to eat, and then come back to the bar for a drink. However, when we...

We had a delicious evening meal sat beside a warm fire. My fish and chips was great and so was my wife's steak and kidney. Our friend had a curry which she enjoyed. Very friendly and helpful staff. We've been a couple of times before to the Seven Stars and will certainly go again.

Had an excellent Sunday Lunch here. We brought our dog so sat in the lounge, the staff were super attentive and food of high quality. To be honest we're not easily pleased so it was brilliant to find somewhere that we will definitely visit again.
