Great scones and cakes in an historic courtyard caff.
71 Saddler Street Durham DH1 3NP 0191 375 0623
The name of this extremely popular café-bar refers to its tucked-away location up a narrow alleyway, known locally as a ‘vennel’. If you want to bag one of their football-sized scones (cheese, raisin or date) arrive early in the day – they're baked fresh every morning. Sandwiches and cakes are served in equally enormous portions. It's a real student favourite, with plenty of seating on two floors and also some sunny tables outside in the hidden courtyard.

Look for the alley between the buildings – there's a sign at the entrance, but you can't see the cafe until you go up the passage.
