user reviews of Seven Stars, Shincliffe Village

please note - reviews on this site are purely the opinion of site visitors, so don't take them too seriously.

Stayed here for two nights in mid April. Nice village pub. Does concentrate on food which is of a reasonable price (didn't eat here but looked good), but that doesn't leave too much space for just being a normal local pub.

Three real ales on offer. Two of the local variety. One was from the very local Durham Brewery. Easy to get to if you are staying in Durham as several buses pass outside. Or you can have a nice walk along the River Wear. Definitely worth a visit if you are in the area.

First time in here (or Durham) since 1976, and much as I remember it, a middle class pub in an attractive village a few hundred yards from Durham City. One of the few pubs selling real ale in those benighted days-Dryborough from somewhere in Scotland if I recall correctly. It still sells a good selection of beers: Timothy Taylors Landlord, Black Sheep Best, and Durham Magus. Things may well be worse generally now, but the choice of beer and food is definitely better.
As this is not All our Yesterdays in the Evening Ill get back to the chase: theres a public bar to the right, complementing the dining rooms to the left: in a semi bar area complete with squashy sofas theres a remarkable fireplace, straight out of some Geordie chimney sweeps vision of Viennese kitsch.Theres also a charming small private dining room glimpsed from this bar, rather like an illustration from some Victorian manual on Good Cheer.
The food was good value and excellent, and not too pretentious as I had feared.For some reason I abandoned my usual pie, and had a chicken risotto, which hit the spot.Id never had any beer form the Durham Brewery before, and I was pleased with the Magus: a hoppy initial impression , followed by an almost nettly dryness, not that I regularly eat nettles, you understand.The welcome and service were charming and efficient:for once, nostalgia didnt let us down.
8/10

Its been a while since I've visited this pub (unfortunately), but when I last visited it was split into bar and restaurant. The food was superb, excellent surroundings and atmosphere.

Beautiful picture post card Public House in pretty village on outskirts of Durham City. Side bar is cosy and welcoming and restaurant is functional. Very well kept Black Sheep Bitter, moorish and fine to soothing on the palate. Staff polite and helpful. The Sunday Roast is not the best in the area but did the job.
