    Great venue for a catch up with friends. The place was pretty quiet so we got great service...

    Lots of great menu options, even for vegetarians and GF. The staff were friendly and meals came out quickly. The atmosphere was cosy but not too noisy.

    This quaint pub has a wonderful ambience, lots of comfortable seating and friendly, attentive staff. We were a group of 6 and enjoyed the food, drinks and being able to hear each other talk in the quiet. Food was delicious and quick to arrive. Highly recommended.

    Ellie was an exceptionally waitress and the food was delicious. I also requested a table in a nook which we got but the only downside was that the table was next to the bar down the side where lots of glasses were and the clashing sound of them was centimetres away and quite off putting and conversation overwhelming. It was right near the toilets and the smell of the men’s toilet was strong when somebody used the toilet. There was also a cold breeze coming from there. I will specifically ask for a different table next time to avoid the toilet smell and traffic, but I will also definitely return and recommend. Flawless service and food. Lovely venue .

    The restaurant has a real English pup feel with a lot of character and atmosphere. The food was amazing (no pub food there) ... what a wonderful surprise. I will definitely be going back especially since they have such a nice outdoor area.

    I have always enjoyed my dining experiences at The Durham. They have a good range of beers and decent food. Service is always friendly and helpful.

    Good atmosphere, great staff and a quirky location in the back corner of Green Square in Kingston all add up for this local favourite. The range of beers is excellent, including Guinness on tap. It doesn’t get as busy as the nearby Caribou or Dock which is a good thing.

    The Durham is my local and I’ve been going there for decades. It’s every bit as great as it ever was! Good food and really welcoming staff. Tonight I had the soft shell crab for the first time and it was ace. But the best thing - great craft beer on tap!

    Good pub but during COVID restrictions the menu is reduced and a bit pricey. The best thing is the range of craft beer. Also even with a booking, they placed us in a table near the door and it was pretty cold. I think it deserves a second chance but the first impression was not as good as expect.

    This place ticked all our boxes; booth for containment and comfort, noise levels ok for chatting, huge portions of yummy food, booze options and a very late night! Staff were friendly and we had a lot of fun

    Great beer and good food. I have been coming to this pub for several years now. Ask for their current IPA as they change their beers on a regular basis.

    It's the best pub in Canberra. There, I said it. Don't believe me? Then go there repeatedly for the better part of a decade like I have and then come and talk to me.

    The Durham is one of the best pubs in Canberra, not the least os which is that they serve Guiness on tap. Staff are friendly and helpful and they have a great location in the back corner of green square in Kingston.

    The Durham is my favourite local! Great pub atmosphere, welcoming staff, good food (buy the wings!). The Durham is a Canberra institution that’s still hitting it out of the park after 40 years ????

    Kingston legend, offering great pub food and a fantastic range of beers. This is one of the few places in Canberra to have Guinness on tap. Week night specials are an added bonus.
