This is a brilliant family run business. Always friendly, helpful and make any journey fun. Cars are exceptionally clean and they take great pride in their business and ensure they make the journey as comfortable as possible. Also very reasonably priced. Can not recommend them highly enough!

My advice to anyone booking Adamsons Taxi's- get a quote BEFORE you book them!
I booked a taxi for 6 people for a Saturday from Washington to Newcastle train station. I never thought to ask for the price up front because we often get a taxi there from Washington and pay around £12 during the day.
The taxi was on time and we were happy until we noticed that we were half way there and the taxi was already £17.
I asked the driver (who was also the owner) why the tariff was on number 4 and why the cost was so expensive- the taxi metre was going up by 15p every couple of metres up the road.
The driver was very defensive and explained that more than four people in a car, automatically reverts to the mini bus prices which is tarrif 4! I explained that when I called to book, I asked for a 6 seater cab and not a mini bus so I should have been told so that I could make an informed decision as to whether we wanted to pay almost £30 for a taxi to town! I He explained that was the rules and I asked why black cabs who sit 5 people, didn't apply that 'rule'. He just repeated the tarrifs again and explained it was all above board. I asked who regulates their firm and he replied that Durham Council is their regulator and that his fees are all set by them.
The taxi fee ended up at £27 for a short trip.
Our trip home by a Newcastle taxi firm (Newcastle train station to Washington) was £17.70 at 1.30am! We took this opportunity to speak to the driver of this firm and asked if he could give us information on the tarrifs as their price was £10 cheaper than Adamsons and it was 1.30 in the morning! He was very confused as to why tarrif 4 was being used and suggested we query this with Durham Council. I have contacted Durham Council and I am awaiting their response.

If you paid £27 for 6 people that means you paid £4.50 each.what you should do is complain when your in a bus with 60 people who are all paying £4 to Newcastle so there's taking £240 for the same trip.I drive a 7 seater taxi and you wouldn't believe how much money it costs to keep them on the road.the amount of diesel we go through.the moaning from the public about prices.you get picked up at your door.are driven directly to where you want to be and dropped off at your location yet still you moan on about prices.the taxi your on about holds 8 I'm sure so if it had been fun it would have only been just over £3 a head.also think of the driver working unsociable hours when your out on the town enjoying yourself and moaning on about a couple quid.so this means if you want to pay £12 to Newcastle you expect the driver to take you for £1.50 each.

You didn't get a mini bus, you got an 8 seater, it would have cost you more to travel by bus and you got door to door service. Adamsons Taxis do not rip people off, you paid the correct fare shown by the metre, no way you could get a taxi for 6 people from Washington to Newcastle for £2 each.

My review was 2013 which was 4 years ago. I'm pretty sure I couldn't get a taxi for 6 for £2 each now too! It now costs £3.50 each which is still cheaper than what you charged 4 years ago!
