The Waiting Room
An event was held to officially open The Waiting Room, a micropub in Durham Railway Station. The venue has regenerated the former ladies first class waiting room in the station, which dates from 1872 and is the first venture by Ouseburn Leisure Group. It serves a range of local real ales and gins.
The Waiting Room underwent a six-figure refurbishment, supported by a grant from the Railway Heritage Trust, to allow it to open. Graeme Robinson, managing director of Ouseburn Leisure Group, said he is already looking to open further venues after the initial success of his first. Sarah Smith, head of licensing at Sintons, secured the license for The Waiting Room.
