Durham Restaurant Week returns with fine dining venue from House of Tides team

Durham Restaurant Week is back, and more than 25 venues have already signed up to take part offering discounted prices for foodies.

The event, organised by Durham BID, will take place from September 30 to October 6, and diners will be able to tuck into set-price £5, £10, £15, £20 and £25 offers.

This year sees the return of Durham’s tasting menu restaurant, Coarse, which made it into the Michelin Guide 2023, as well as a new fine dining restaurant, Faru.

Coarse, in North Road, will offer a lunch menu that includes a snack and three courses, plus a free glass of cava (or any non-alcoholic drink) for just £20. While Restaurant Faru will offer guests a special five-course menu.

Owners Jake and Laura Siddle, the former head chef and front-of-house manager at the Michelin-starred House of Tides, said they were ‘delighted to be taking part’.

Laura commented: “As Durham’s fine dining restaurant, we wanted to get involved but still be able to offer guests the full Faru experience. So, we’ve put together a special £60 tasting menu that guests can enjoy during the week.”

“It features some real crowd pleasers, too, such as our Hen of the Woods dish, which is made using chicken fat crumb and served with a chive emulsion, pak choi and mushroom ketchup. We finish it off with a mushroom dashi broth. It’s been a huge hit since we opened.”
