Everyone is welcome to thier own oppinion. Before I wrote my review, I read the ones already written here. No restuarant can expect to have 100% safisfaction from all their partrons. I say, give them another chance. Tell Magwyer's of your complaint, I am sure they will do something to make your experience a better one.
I have frequently visited Magwyer's, but I wouldn't say that we are regulars.
From the time we walk in and the time we leave I feel that they really do care about our experience with them.
Most times when my husband and I have visited the place has been packed. A few people I have seen before, but most are new faces, ranging from young adult to old people like us.
The same staff have been there for as long as I can remember. This tells me that they are treated well and happy to be working there. We might have had to wait for our meal a little longer at times, but it was always worth it.
We were both happy with our meal last night and suprised how much food we got in our extra side dish. There was enough to take some home and have another meal tomorrow.
The owners are a hard working couple that take pride in their pub. The pub hasn't been renovated as far as I know from the first day it opened. I don't see why it should. It isn't run down and has a warm cozy feel to it and reminds me of the pubs back in Europe.
It's a great place to meet friends or just enjoy a meal and a drink with your spouse. I will keep on enjoying Magwyer's. There is nothing in Durham that compares to this type of casual, fun dining.
