It is open 10.00am to 4.30pm every day except Christmas Day, Boxing Day, New Year's Day and Good Friday.

A lunchtime menu is served between midday and 2.00pm, featuring a wide range of hot and cold favourites including locally sourced produce and ingredients, which are used whenever possible. The Undercroft Restaurant is proud to hold a Taste Durham award in recognition of its support of local food producers.

The Undercroft Restaurant also has a great range of hot and cold drinks with freshly brewed bean to cup coffee and Brew Tea Company tea which is perfect with one of our delicious homemade Durham cakes.

We offer a fantastic range of children's hot and cold meals and kids lunch activity boxes so bring your little ones along for a delicious lunch and afternoon treat.
