Called in because the Station House was closed temporarily. Alas, no ale of any note to try so had a half of lager and left to catch my train.

The Bridge Hotel is very hand for Durham train.
Once inside there is a single room which runs the width of the pub,the seating is bench type and normal tables and chairs.
There were three real ales on the bar,i had a drink of Hook Norton Lion which went down well,the other beers were Caledonian Flying Scotsman and Everards Mad Hatter.
I thought this was a very pleasant pub to end my Durham crawl in.

A disappointing visit here before catching our train from the nearby station. The three beers on the bar were Theakstons Lightfoot and two from Caledonian: Flying Scotsman and Autumn Red. I've had the train beer before, notably in very good nick last month in the Town Hall pub in Richmond; the autumn beer was a new one for me, but was described on the blackboard by the bar, as on the Caledonian website, as being russet red in colour. Both beers, although they came from different taps, were identically copper coloured, similar to Black Sheep or Pedigree. They were so cold it was not possible to discern any flavour at all, whether of "Hersbrucker and fresh spice" or "sweet caramel from the rye crystal malt" in the case of my "red", or "profoundly malty aroma" with "hints of raisins, spice and toasty dryness" in the case of Flying Scotsman. Both came across as thin, tasteless brews, and were a huge disappointment. We didn't stay to argue about it with the landlord, as we had a train to catch. This pub is no longer in the Good Beer Guide, so I think someone from Camra must have had a similar experience.
