Dining in The Library Restaurant

Our aim in the Library Restaurant is to provide imaginative food, using the freshest possible locally sourced ingredients in relaxed surroundings. Menus which emphasise the freshest possible ingredients, exciting flavours and a modern approach to cooking created by our head chef and his culinary team.

Overlooking the Deer Park through large French doors, the Library is located in the original Shafto family library within the main Hall.

The Library is ideal for a traditional Sunday Lunch; relaxed comfortable surroundings, crisp linen and produce sourced from Durham’s local producers.
