17 Elvent Bridge, Durham, DH1 3AA

Restaurant 17 burst onto Durham’s dining scene five years ago, and has become a firm favourite because of the unique gastronomic experience it offers. This modern British restaurant can be found inside one of Durham’s most historic buildings, right in the heart of the city centre and minutes away from the River Wear and Durham Cathedral.

This multi-floor venue focuses on cuisine from around the world and boasts a relaxed atmosphere. The charming boutique-style interior boasts a luxurious blend of low-level chandelier lighting, velvet seating and solid oak tables perfect for bringing people together for a spectacular candlelit meal.

Restaurant 17 is a sustainable restaurant that has earned a reputation for the creative way it transforms and showcases local produce from farms and fields just a few miles away. The menu offers an extraordinary array of cuisine. Those who love seafood will delight in delicious starters such as seared scallops atop creamy corn and chorizo chowder with Parmesan and chorizo crisps, and mussels and squid moqueca with peppers, spring onion, chilli and lime leaves. Jump into mains and enjoy Sicilian-style chargrilled tuna steak with mussels or sesame-seared pork loin with wild mushrooms, mung beans, tenderstem broccoli and asparagus in a spiced black bean sauce – this demonstrates a completely different side to the chef’s extensive repertoire.

You must end with one of the indulgent desserts, the mocha brownie with berry compote and hazelnut praline is hard to resist, as is the blueberry and lime frangipane tart with vanilla ice cream, honeycomb and elderfl ower syrup.

There’s also a 1950s-inspired ice cream parlour on the top floor and a traditional tearoom below – exploring all six floors is a must. With all these hidden gems in one venue, it should come as no surprise that Restaurant 17 has been mentioned in Time Out’s list of top Durham restaurants and awarded was awarded a Certificate of Excellence by TripAdvisor.

Restaurant 17 can cater for any occasion with private hire available, along with room hire and bespoke menus. To make an enquiry, give the team a call and they’ll be happy to discuss your requirements.
