I have been stopping at the Diamond, almost weekly for over 6 months due to work. The staff are friendly and accommodating, nothing is ever too much trouble and always a warm welcome. The food is lovely great quality meals at a good price, a hearty breakfast with a choice of lighter options. The atmosphere is a 'proper' pub, not... More

Nice pub / hotel. Friendly staff. Good breakfast served from 7am. Convenient car parking, rooms claim to have wifi but mine did not. Poor mobile signal on EE. Pub does evening meals, there is also a good selection of restaurants nearby. Sainsburys and Waitrose short walk away.

Hi stayed here this week, cheapish and cheerful - its really for contactors working in the area. Pub food plain and simple and limited not much choice at all. Staff nice rooms bit scruffy, Wi-Fi non existent in rooms not much better in bar.

We stayed here at the weekend as we were at a wedding at Dissington Hall. (£7 taxi journey) Great place to stay! We were looking for a room which would sleep 3 adults, after phoning a few of hotels - none which would let 3 adults share- I came across the Diamond Inn! I called and spoke to Lorna who... More

Stayed for one night. Bar very busy when we arrived but the staff took us straight to our room, they were so friendly and made us welcome. Couldn't get bathroom light on and a member of staff came over straight away to show us. Room and bathroom very clean, excellent shower with plenty of hot water. Bath towels were on... More

I've eaten here a few times over the last couple of months since I heard that new chefs had taken over the food. I have not been disappointed! I've had a couple of delicious Sunday dinners, my father in law saying that it was the best pub food he'd ever had. I've also had a breakfast with my friend, we... More

We had hoped for dinner and B&B but on Fridays the Diamond Inn does not serve a evening meal so we ate out. There is reasonable off street parking and we stayed in one of the converted stable rooms behind the main building. This was fine by us as it was quiet location. The room was large, clean with a...

I chose The Diamond as I wanted a short trip to visit family and cheap B&B. Email enquiry replied to really quickly . On arrival the pub was busy, but we were still created immediately and shown to our room that was #2 in The Smithey. We were shown how everything works and asked if we needed any other help....
