The Cellar Door

41 Saddler St, DH1 3NU, Durham, County Durham
Passion. It is quite often impossible to summarise the experience created within a restaurant with just one word. Passion. Passion to produce the best food possible with the freshest and finest ingredients we can scour the world to find. Passion to strive to be the best. Passion to ensure that our customers remember. Passion to cater for people from all walks of life and give them a lasting memory of our restaurant.

We’re not going to tell you about how we have stunning river views with outdoor dining set in a 13th Century cellar conversion. We’re not going to bore you with how difficult we are to find. We want you to come here, seek us out, walk down those narrow steps, be surprised by what lies beneath and leave wishing you had found us sooner. We’re not perfect, we’re not the best in the world, but we strive to be the best we can and evolve every day, so come join us on our journey.

Restaurant DH1

The Avenue, DH1 4DX, Durham, County Durham
Restaurant DH1 is lucky enough to be housed in a beautiful, old building, on a hill overlooking Durham city. The building, Farnley Tower, was built by a local architect in 1870 as his own private residence. Over the years the building has had many guises and after undergoing extensive restoration in 1998, Farnley Tower reopened in its current form as a 4 star guest house. Restaurant DH1 opened its doors in March 2014; the realisation of a dream for its current owners.

The restaurant occupies Farnley Tower’s lower floor and can seat around 22 diners. We offer fine dining at an affordable price, in cosy, friendly surroundings. At Restaurant DH1 we are proud of the food that we serve and the service which we provide and we aim to offer our customers a special dining experience every time that they visit. We hope to help create some memorable evenings for each and every one of our guests, whether they are spending time with family, friends or loved ones.

Blackfriars Restaurant

Friars St, Newcastle upon Tyne, NE1 4XN, Newcastle Upon Tyne, Tyne and Wear
Up to 50 guests
Blackfriars was opened in 2001 by Andy and Sam Hook following on from the success of the critically acclaimed Sidney’s Restaurant in Tynemouth. The restaurant is now run by a team of exceptional staff headed up by Group Operations Manager Ruth Terrington, Manager Rebecca Blackith and Head Chef Chris Wardale.

Andy is originally from Cambridge and graduated in Physics at Swansea University where he preferred playing electric guitar and drums in rock bands, more famous for their pyrotechnics than the quality of music!


He then headed for the big lights of London where he watched Marco Pierre White open his famous first restaurant, Harvey’s in Wandsworth, a stone’s throw from his flat.


Four years on, and being attracted by the legendary nightlife, the increasing cultural activities, the seaside and Newcastle United, Andy moved to Newcastle to work in manufacturing and then shortly after met his wife Sam, a marketing and PR specialist who is now Marketing Director for Blackfriars and its sister restaurants.


Quickly tiring of the rigours of factory life and with a burning passion for entering the life of a restaurateur, he opened Sidney’s Restaurant in Tynemouth (since sold) followed by Blackfriars a few years later. In 2016 he opened Hinnies in Whitley Bay and Dobson & Parnell in Newcastle's vibrant Quayside.

At Nancy’s we have a wealth of experience hosting private functions! And in our humble opinion we’ve gotten pretty good at it! In the past we’ve hosted all sorts: from super swanky wedding receptions to raucous work do’s, right the way through to cute & quaint christenings, and everything in between!

We have two areas to offer, depending on the size of your party.


Firstly we have a lovely function room upstairs which is totally private to accommodate you and your guests, this also comes with your own private bar and access to our rooftop terrace. There is usually a minimum number of guests required to book this room which is 75 people. During peak times (Friday/ Saturday nights) we have a £125 room hire charge and we also require a minimum pre-spend of £400 to be spent on food to book our upstairs room. There is a £100 deposit required to book the function room, as well as the £125 room hire fee if applicable.


We also have a lovely and quaint area downstairs that is perfect for smaller functions of up to 50 people. There isn’t a fee for this area or a minimum pre-spend, all we ask for is the £50 refundable deposit to secure this area for your party.


If you make a booking, we’re able to hold the room for up to 14 days to give you time in coming in to pay your £50 deposit (and £125 room fee if applicable). All bookings remain provisional until we receive the deposit and after 14 days we reserve the right to cancel your booking.


We also have an close relationship with our sister venues As You Like It, Florita’s, Madame Koo’s, House of Smith and Mr Lynch, so if you’re not ready to end the party just yet, let us know and we can secure queue jump into any one of our late night venues.


We can also cater for you and your guests with a variety of buffet options as well as drinks packages. Even if it’s not on the menu, we’re usually able to cater for any requests. From chip butties to pie and peas or delicious pulled pork sandwiches we aim to please! We’re unable to allow outside catering however you’re welcome to provide cakes or sweets for your guests.

City Tavern is not a fast food pub, it is a good food pub. It takes a little longer to freshly prepare our meals, but our regular customers tell us they would rather wait a little while for proper home-cooked meals. We always listen to our customers as feedback is what makes us better.
