    Changed owners fairly recently and all the good staff moved to Varsity.

    Great outdoor area for drinking in the sun. Sam smith beer served. Some hate it but I don't. Exceptionally cheap.

    One of our favourite pubs in Durham - cheap beer and lager, and great atmosphere

    Cheap, ok beer but probably the crabbiest, rudest barman ever. So is it worth going? Meh.

    It's under new management and getting scummier and rougher every time I come in. Great old fashioned boozer that will go to the dogs if they lose the student trade

    The manager here is extremely rude. Not like other Samuel Smith's pubs.
