Meanwhile, down Durham city way, things are moving a pace at the new Riverwalk development of restaurants, shops and accommodation.
Home already to Old Toms Gin Bar and Lane7, and soon to be home of Durham Distillery, a new food hall is set to showcase street food and produce from across the region. Nick Berry, from developer Clearbell Capital, says: “Our new food hall will create a platform for unique food operators. With the cinema, bowling lanes and new restaurants, we’re establishing a real point of difference for Durham.”
