(((** 22 October 2018 by Keith from Gateshead
Starters arrived before the drinks!!! That should never happen. The starter of poached pear salad consisted of very large quantities of shredded red cabbage and very little poached pear. The waitress took this item off the bill without our asking, which was a positive. The steaks were very nice, but the triple cooked chips were average. Sticky toffee pudding was again OK. We travelled 45 minutes each way by bus for this evening and wouldn’t go to the effort again. Room and surroundings were very nice, excellent table layout for couples, fours and parties. The welcome also was good....just a pity about the food....I expected better and was disappointed.

The restaurant is a lovely building and the service was excellent but the meal was very average and not what I would expect for a restaurant like MPW. The food was okay but nothing special. I have been before and thought the food was amazing so I was left very disappointed this time around.

+ lovely surroundings, decent food overall, polite service
- on arrival we informed the lady at the desk that we were on a tight schedule and needed to have left the restaurant by 1.30. However, I do not feel this was taken into consideration at all during the course of our meal and noticed that diners who arrived and were seated after us had there orders taken before us. I feel the experience was marred by anxious waiting for our meal and dessert and explaining everytime that we were on a schedule which no-one seemed to heed. You could also tell that while service was polite they didnt like the fact that we asked to be served promptly. As far as the food was concerned the roast beef and potatoes were good and portion size adequate but not generous, the Yorkshire Pudding was clearly a catering mix and the taste and texture was similar to that eaten elsewhere in chain restaurants and not good. The vegetables were ok but not enough for two people and repetitive i.e cauliflower in a scant and tasteless cheese sauce and it appeared again in the mixed vegetables that were served.
As for value for money it was on the pricey side for two courses so not sure we would dine here again for Sunday Lunch but may come for dinner one evening as the restaurant is beautiful and tastefully decorated and restored.

Excellent meal in lovely surroundings. We went for Sunday lunch, taking our son who is studying at Durham University. Service was excellent, staff were friendly and welcoming and took the time to discuss the former life of the impressive building. There are many nice places to eat in Durham, this time we fancied something a little upmarket as it was my son’s birthday and we were really pleased with our choice of venue. The food was excellent, we all chose the beef which was served to our preference with plentiful accompaniments. I also really enjoyed the crispy beef starter and the chocolate mousse was fab. Very nice bottle of red wine was served at the ideal temperature, all in all a most enjoyable visit!

Overall the food was very good. We ordered bernaise sauce with our steaks and it was served lukewarm, disappointing.
The deserts were ok but nothing special.
Really good atmosphere in the resturant and friendly helpful staff.

We had a lovely time at the restaurant. The service was good and swift - we have been to too many restaurants where the waiters just want to melt into the background rather than attend to a customer. One of us has an allergy so they were very clued up and ensured that the food we ordered was okay for that. The surroundings were nice. The food was nice. We started with a French onion soup and a mushroom soup. Both were very tasty. For mains we had a shephard's pie and the chicken. For dessert we had an Eton mess - we were pleasantly surprised to find a scoop of ice cream at the bottom of the glass - and Sticky Toffee pudding - the toffee sauce was delicious. For once we didn't think that we could have done it better at home.
