Try some real English food in the heart of Durham

Durham City

Local cheese and meat lovers rejoice! There's plenty of local fare at this noted eatery.

The chefs at Oldfields really like local produce - and we mean really. The meats that go into their menu of traditional English dishes are all sourced from nearby suppliers, many of whom they have been working with for years. If it's on the plate it’s sure to be local.

The tradition doesn't stop there. With dishes including lamb rump, ox liver and, of course, a roast dinner, Oldfields has everything covered for an English feast. You might break a belt buckle but you won't break the bank: with reasonably priced main courses, Oldfields is far from expensive. The Guardian says it's "fully signed up to the modern British food agenda”.
