A Weekend Stay at The Kingslodge Inn Durham

I can't tell you how long I've been pestering Samantha and Chloe to come and join me for a weekend in Durham, but with our busy lives getting in the way I was delighted back in the Summer when we agreed a date for October. 
We had arranged to stay a the Kingslodge in Durham which is around a 5 minute walk from the bus and railway station and probably around 10 minute walk from the market square, there is also free parking at the hotel. 
I packed my bags and headed down to meet the girls for a much needed catch up in my home town. As you can imagine when girls get together we did an awful lot of talking as the last time we were all together was for Chloe and Simon's wedding. 
I often visit the Kingslodge with my family for an after work bite to eat so I was looking forward to my stay with the girls. 

The Kingslodge is decorated like a country pub in but in the heart of a city the pub and restaurant under went a refurb earlier this year and I was completely blown away by how much the restaurant had changed. 

There are 23 rooms in the Kingslodge from family rooms to single travellers. I know that The Kingslodge is rather popular with tourists, business people and student parents visiting.
My room for the evening was warm and cosy. When I dropped my bags off I drew the curtains and switched on the bedside lamp as the dark nights are here now.

My room had a dressing table and a basic bathroom but everything felt incredibly homely.

I headed down stairs for a glass of fizz and my supper. We ate in the main restaurant which has a lovely vibe, the staff came and took our orders however Samantha's starter and main course were so popular they both sold out. 

For starters I went for the roasted red pepper hummus with pita bread.

Main course I went for pasta.

Huge king prawns and muscles with asparagus and chillies. It was delicious and I managed to slop some of it down my top.

I was full by this point but when we were browsing the dessert menu I happened to glance across the homemade chocolate brownie which I honestly couldn't resist.

The rich brownie was so tasty but I had to admit defeat half way through, but made sure Sam tired it first!

We moved from the restaurant through to the bar to finish off our drinks and conversation before I headed up to bed and got in between the crisp bed sheets and drifted off into a deep sleep. 

I woke up on Sunday morning feeling refreshed had a lovely hot shower got ready and made my way down to the restaurant to meet the girls for some breakfast. Breakfast is served from 7:30 until 10:30.

Along with a cooked breakfast there was cereal, coffee and tea on offer. I poured myself a peppermint tea and joined Chloe in having some Coco pops for breakfast.

From the menu that offered porridge, full English breakfast and scones I opted for Eggs Benedict.

I had a lovely stay at The Kingslodge in Durham and can't wait till Chloe and Sam come back and visit me again.

The Kingslodge is owned by the Inn Collection and have various pubs and hotels across the North East for more information please see their website here.
