Kingsgate Bar

Kingsgate Balcony

Kingsgate is the main Union bar. It's at the back of Level B past Reception - it has a good selection of lagers and beers on draught and a wide range of bottles and spirits.

Kingsgate's location in Dunelm makes it a great place to meet up after lectures or possibly the best place in Durham to meet people when going out in the evening. You don't get a much more central spot for the price.

There's outside seating on the balcony and in the summer when the weather's nice there's a barbecue.

Kingsgate is the hub for live sporting events on the large screens located within. As well as this, the bar has 3 pool tables (upstairs in the Pool room) and an array of games machines for the kid in all of us.

We regularly compare our prices with our competitors, making sure we stay good value. Our draught range starts from �£1.45 for a pint of Worthington or Carling, or �£1.50 for Strongbow, and our prices for premium brands remain competitive with Grolsch at �£1.70 and Caffreys at �£1.80.
