People tend to check in during these times:
Cheap and good range of drinks, nice outdoor seating
Outdoor seating is lovely, nice view of the river and street- great for people-watching!
Changed owners fairly recently and all the good staff moved to Varsity.
Amazing selection of drinks, especially beer. Very decently priced and a lovely outdoor seating area.
Great outdoor area for drinking in the sun. Sam smith beer served. Some hate it but I don't. Exceptionally cheap.
Choice of different lagers and beers at very good prices
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.
