Bar

What is Trevs Bar?

Trevs Bar is the physical (and social!) centre of Trevs, making it a great meeting point at any time of day. We are open every evening, and host regular bar nights, ‘Unplugged’ music nights, and various events, as well as a weekly Pub Quiz. Look out for cocktail evenings and tasting events over the year, helping to give you a taste of more unusual drinks alongside our normal fare.

We are also open as a coffee bar during the day, which doubles up as a great study space. Come down to try our selection of Italian coffees, fruit teas and hot chocolates, at some of the best prices in Durham. Remember, if you need a hot drink to help you work, they’re available all day, not just during the coffee bar.

Who are we?

We are proud to say that Trevs Bar is staffed entirely by Trevs students, and we believe this creates a great atmosphere and a fantastic place to spend your time. Both our Senior and Junior Servers are keen to chat about what we do, what we serve and pretty much everything else. We’re a friendly and enthusiastic lot, so come down and get to know us and the bar! 

The day to day running of the bar is the responsibility of the Sabbatical Bar Steward (the Bar Sabb), a recent Trevs graduate. The current Bar Sabb is Alex Durk, and he’s responsible for organising bar events, staff management, product ordering and pretty much everything else to do with the bar. If you’ve got any concerns or questions, feel free to contact him via the bar email account (trevelyan.bar@durham.ac.uk) or find him somewhere in the bar area during office hours (10:00 – 18:00 every weekday).

What do we serve?

We offer a hugely impressive range of gins, rums, vodkas and whiskies, including rotating premium rums and gins. Our beer and cider fridges are stocked with a variety of different styles from different brewers – craft beers such as Beavertown Neck Oil nestle next to classics like Peroni and Newcastle Brown, while fruity Rekorderligs sit next to real ciders from Thatchers. We’re also always on the lookout for other interesting products as well, so keep your eyes peeled for new additions to the family! Prices start at 30p for soft drinks and £1.60 for draught beers and ciders, and range up to £3 for some of our most interesting spirits and bottled drinks.


We also have a cocktail menu available! With old favourites including Cosmopolitans, Long Island Ice Teas, and Old Fashioneds alongside some more slightly unusual drinks including Melon Balls and Granny Smiths, why not try to find your favourite while experiencing something new? Cocktail prices start at £3.40, so don’t be afraid to give them a try! There’s also our college drinks – the Trevs Blue, the Morals Mangler and another more secret one. If you can find out its name, feel free to order it!
