Very friendly & welcoming staff at the Durham Castle Arms @ Kingston We went there for Lunch & on the strength of that we then did dinner there on 2 seperate occasions. Seating is great as you have the choice of indoor or outdoor dining. Their menu is great as it also caters for Vegetarians & Pescatarians! We had a great time there. It seems to have the patronage of a good cross section of people ranging from young professionals to the young at heart. Very safe place to go to. Thank you for great food, beer, wine & great ambience. The inside is like some of the real pubs you would encounter in the UK. Highly recommend the Durham to all. We look forward to going back there See less

The Durham is a good pub serving a range of beers beyond the bog standard stuff. One of the few, true pubs in Canberra. Put it on your pub crawl or stay longer! Cheers! See less

Durham never fails to impress. The last time I was in Canberra was around 2 years ago. I can’t remember the last time I was at the Durham but it’s always been somewhere I check out when I’m in town. I returned to Canberra after being in a Japan for 18 months. The last time I had a schnitty was probably at least 18 months ago so I may have a skewed view. However, the Durhams schnitty lived up to expectations, it was delicious and was exactly what I wanted. Couple that with their excellent drinks list that includes local wines you really can’t go wrong for a pandemic lunch and end of days. Do yourself a favour, if you’re in Canberra and would like a great pub meal. Head on in to the Durham in Kingston. See less

Spent St. Patrick's Day 2021 here. Been here twice now. A great English-style pub with Guinness on tap! The staff are welcoming and provide great service. Great pub food on the menu (I highly rate the Porterhouse steak and Bangers & Mash). Wonderful atmosphere inside and out. Live music, trivia nights, a lot going on. Did I mention they have Guinness on tap? Enough said. See less

We went there for New Year's Eve and made an advance booking thinking it would be packed. However, the place was mostly empty. Honestly, the food was too overpriced for the quality on offer. The chicken schintzel was quite disappointing. The mushroom sauce was underwhelming and too salty. The coleslaw was clearly prepped ages ago as it was pretty soggy and unappetising. My friend still liked the buffalo wings; I found them pretty average. Ditto for grilled chicken. Having said that, I will note that I was pleasantly surprised when they didn't charge us for the second glass of wine I ordered after I accidentally spilled the first one. That was nice of them (Only giving 3 stars because of this). I liked the rustic decor and I suppose it's a good place for catching up with friends over drinks. But I will not recommend this place if you are looking for a decent place to eat and drink. See less

This is the Canberra version of an old pub and it delivers on quirks, character and a laid- back, neighbourly vibe. The locals are welcoming and there are some interesting local craft beers on tap. Would have liked to see more local wines on offer, as the Canberra region has some good ones. Music is awful! See less

We waited an hour and a half for food. Then they forgot two meals of the people in our group altogether. Small bones throughout the chicken stew type dish on the menu which made it really hard to eat. Wanted to like this place as it looks cool so this was all disappointing. See less

Decent pubs in Canberra are limited and this one hits the spot! Lovely and cosy and good selection of beers (including a delicious raspberry craft beer while I was here). Good food options on the menu, including vegetarian options and great staff who are accommodating of dietary requests such as vegan! The food quality itself is great, good pub food with decent portions and something for most - classics and varients such as eggplant parmas, and then lighter salad options. While I was here they were running a Seinfeld Trivia night which looked great too. See less
