The Food Pit in Durham Opens!

The Food Pit is Durham’s first street food destination, located in The Riverwalk with spectacular views of the Castle and Cathedral. The Food Pit, which had their official launch event last night, comprises seven individual food units each offering a variety of world foods located in a social space with a friendly bar.

The new food hall concept is part of an extensive redevelopment of The Riverwalk shopping centre which has transformed the old centre a new leisure destination with restaurants, bars, café’s, and an Odeon Luxe cinema. The scheme has been developed by owner Clearbell Capital and is one of the first of theirs to have been re purposed.

Tandem have been appointed to provide Destination Marketing and Financial Accounting for the scheme, which includes a food offering of artisan sausages, gourmet burgers, loaded chips, Thai dishes, desserts, Mediterranean wraps, coffee and deli-style lunches.

The food hall concept allows visitors to sample a wide range of foods and flavours from local traders all under one roof, whilst also providing a large communal seating area to eat, drink, and be social. The Food Pit will host live music nights whilst working closely with Durham University and the Durham BID.
