Durham Marriott Hotel Royal County hosts one of Durham’s most well-known traditional restaurants: Market kitchen. Served in a classical, elegant dining hall, the food is traditional British fare. A strictly jacket-and-tie, and elbows off the table affair is advisable. It is also recommended to book early.
Durham is a university city attracting students from across the globe, so the restaurant scene has adapted and found itself in a position to boast culinary fare from most corners of the planet. This is not to say that local delicacies from the nearby sea ports and farming land have been ignored. After years of scorn at both home and abroad British cooking and ingredients have found a new respect and recognition.
