Had a lovely time, someone at the table had a problem when ordering drinks online and the drink didn’t arrive. Other than that would definitely come back.

We have been to Whitechurch many times and invariably have enjoyed the experience- great food, attentive staff and a good atmosphere. However we were very disappointed on our latest visit. I realise that you are facing challenges with outside dining as a result of Covid and the unseasonal cold weather. However, there was no heating at all in the outside dining area - we were told by the staff that gas for the heaters had run out and there was non available. It was freezing and totally spoilt our visit - we ate our food quickly and left ASAP. It is unacceptable that all gas had run out, bad management not what we have come to expect from Whitecurch

Lovely lunch on Bank Holiday Monday in the pouring rain but kept completely dry under the beautiful marquee.

When we booked we were informed that there would be a cafe menu available in the evening along with bar snacks. When we arrived we were informed there was no cafe food left and that bar snacks were not available on a Sunday. We were able to order crisps. The staff didn't seem to see the problem with the fact that we had been misled and just kept reiterating that bar snacks weren't available on a Sunday ans that the cafe food had run out as whether been busy. Perhaps the fact that there was a limited amount of cafe food available and bar snacks are not served on a Sunday would have avoided the confusion. That said, the beer was nice but I think clearer details about what is available would be helpful.

A fantastic experience. Food and drinks were excellent as was the attentive service from both of the waitresses. The outdoor heater was a welcome addition on a chilly evening.

This was our first visit after a recommendation from a friend, we certainly weren’t disappointed. From start to finish a great experience. We will definitely be back and seeing the food being served we will be booking a table for food.

We sat on a damp seat and told we could only order a pre made sandwich to eat. There were people stood around our table waiting for their takeout drinks, which was weird and off-putting. No atmosphere. We left without ordering and won't be going back.

This was one of my favourite places in Durham, however lately it has been disappointing. The system and organisation is very poor. If you order food to take away you can still be waiting up to half an hour to collect this (the same length as people who haven’t pre-ordered). The cafe/drinks section is unclear; we couldn’t order snacks as we would have to go to the original queue to do this, even though no one had told us this and the waitress said that we could scan the QR code and order food and drinks through this. One member of staff said you didn’t need to queue up whilst another told us off for jumping the queue! Took 20 minutes for a coffee to arrive and that was after reminding the waiter that I was still waiting for a drink. I used to love this place but I fear that without training, a clear manager and a better system it’s will just continue to be a disappointment.
