About House of Darwin

We had an idea, sat across the table in our favourite bar, to do something fantastic with a village pub. We wanted somewhere friends could come and get together, enjoying a great variety of drinks and food, inspired by seasonality and individuality. Honest food, friendly service and comfortable unrefined surroundings.

Your home from home and our dream realised. Welcome to door No.221 House of Darwin.

Absolutely over the moon with the total professionalism that the entire staff showed me and my party of 26 people. The food was of a fantastic standard and everyone in my group thought I was a hero. I literally cannot thank the whole team for a lovely afternoon and delicious food. Thank you wholeheartedly Mr Duncan Watson

Both Our orders was for a starter and a main course after 50mins I ask what the hold up was the waiter response was it would be 2min. He was right however they forgot our started. This was totally unacceptable and the gave us 2 free drinks. I have been a regular in Darwin's for a good 3years I can see myself using this again.
