The fantastic Pulman Café based at Pulman Volkswagen, Durham just got even better with the introduction of new Head Chef Ed. With over 8 years’ experience in the catering industry, Ed certainly has the experience of providing exquisite fresh food and exceptional service, a quality welcomed by Pulmans’ philosophy of “Delivering a fantastic customer experience”.
The Pulman Café is at the heart of the Pulman Volkswagen showroom. A little gem of a place that provides delicious fresh food to eat in or takeaway, from quick snacks to 3 course meals. Open to the public as well as Pulman customers, this café has a bustling and welcoming atmosphere.
Ed Lambe, Head Chef comments, “Working with Pulman is an exciting opportunity, to create and have the freedom to build my own menu and be a part of the fantastic Pulman Café. It’s all about delivering that fantastic customer experience, and that’s why I’m keen to start trialling different dishes to see what our customers prefer.
It’s the first time I’ve worked in a café that is within a car showroom, it’s a brilliant idea! The café and the showroom combined create a fantastic atmosphere for everyone.”
The Pulman café provides freshly made dishes, hot drinks with a focus on homemade delicacies available to eat in, with free Wi-Fi hotspots, daily newspapers and free view TV on our widescreen TV. You can also book tables and dishes in advance so they are freshly made when you walk through the door, or available to takeaway. Service and sales customers also get complimentary refreshments as part of the experience of owning a car or van from Pulman.

In the short time Ed has been here he has already made fans amongst our regular customers, with fantastic comments on the new menu trials. So much so that our Trip Advisor ranking has increased from being in the top 100 for Durham restaurants and Café’s to be sitting at number 35! I’m sure this will only get better!”
