Let the quest begin!

The purpose of this blog isn't simply to post a list of negative threads. It's more an effort in highlighting the very best places to eat, drink and be merry. All experiences are my own, or with my family. There is no connection between myself or any of the establishments other than as a paying punter. If you take exception to any post, please feel free to offer your own comments. This is meant to be a fair an honest opinion of where we've eaten.

Hide Cafe Bar & Grill-restaurant in Durham City

We don't normally do the Sunday lunch thing, at least not away from home! Forced to find shelter during a wet, miserable August Sunday afternoon, we headed in to Hide Cafe Bar & Grill, on Saddler Street-Durham. We choose the Sunday lunch and we were awarded in some style. My wife and I both choose the roast beef, which was pink and very tender. The Yorkies were huge, the vegetables crisp and crunchy, all served together on the same plate, non of this daft side-plate-portion thingy going on at Hide!. My two sons both choose the chicken. Hide do a great job in providing decent children's portions and the bill was considerate with just three meals on the tab. How often elsewhere have we asked for children's portions only to be told 'we don't do children's portions- we have a children's menu!', or to find I've paid full whack for half a portion. Hide is great, the service is really good and the food is very, very good. In fact, I don't ever recall having a bad meal in this place. Price for Sunday lunch?...£9.50. Some might find that a touch expensive, but this isn't your normal pub grub, this good food- well cooked.
