Pub and Club Updates

As you are aware we are currently in a situation where pubs and clubs are under severe restrictions on when they can open and the services they can provide. From April 12th, changing government restrictions mean pubs can provide seated outside table service. This page provides a list of pubs in our area which have indicated they intend providing such a service on or after that date.

During the full closure many of our pubs provided a take away food service and most will be continuing to do this. To find the pubs in the CAMRA Durham Branch area in this category please following this link.

If you are aware of any pubs and clubs that are providing services but that we don't list; or if you feel any of the information being provided is now inaccurate, please drop us an email.

You are also advised to join our Facebook group to keep abreast of latest developments.

You may also wish to engage with CAMRA's national campaign, #pullingtogether, through the national website at or over on Facebook at

Above all, please remain safe at this time. Remember there are ways to continue to enjoy and support real ale and local businesses without putting yourself or others at risk. We look forward to seeing you all in the, hopefully, not too distant future.

Welcome to the official website for the Durham Branch of CAMRA.

CAMRA Durham represent CAMRA across most of County Durham leading local campaigns to save our real ale pubs, clubs and breweries, and campaigning for a fair deal for real ale drinkers. We are also responsible for organising the annual CAMRA Durham Beer Festival. This is usually held after the August Bank Holiday in Durham City and showcases real ales from both local and national brewers along with a number of real ciders and perries. More information on the Beer Festival can be found on our sister site Run by a committee of volunteers, we meet on a monthly basis in pubs around the Branch area to discuss local and national matters as well as general Branch business. These meetings are open to all CAMRA members. We also hold regular social gatherings where members can get together without the formal business of the monthly meeting. More information on the Branch, committee and our activities can be found here on our website.
