Warm friendly welcoming pub nice staff great location by river. Beer I'm told was good. My wine was lovely. But food just very ordinary. My meal was pretty poor dry overcooked pheasant Sounded good but on delivery nothing special The ordinary pub food from regular menu looked better We did have Sunday lunch there another time and it was great

We booked a break using an expensive gift voucher and were given room 2. The pub has two dining areas and a small bar area. We paid a £10 per night surcharge to take our very quiet small Bichon dog. This resulted our being forced to eat in the bar area ( table 15). We booked the table for 7pm... More

Superb location on the outskirts of the village by the stone bridge over the River Ure. Traditional pub with small 'rooms' within an open area with low ceilings and loads of old wood on view! Large beer garden to the rear on the banks of the river. Great range of real ales on tap and the usual lagers, wines etc.... More

Called in here on a trip back from Scotland as it was so highly recommended on TripAdvisor and is only a couple of minutes drive from the A1(M) [or rather the A6055 which runs parallel to it]. Can only agree with previous reviewers, all the food looked good (although we both opted for the meat pie on the specials board... More

Stayed for 1 night in this wonderful country pub. As soon as we arrived we were welcomed like old friends. The staff and owner Jill was very hospitable and nothing was too much trouble. Lovely room, very comfy bed and fantastic full english breakfast. Would have no hesitation in recommending for a short overnight stay and plenty to see in... More

We all received a large portion of pie with chips and vegetables. It is nice that pubs still make home made meat pie in these... More

Great traditional pub, super service, smashing buzzy atmosphere, worth moving to West Tanfield just to visit more often. We were on holiday but were treated like locals. We will try to return as soon as possible.

Fantastic little find. Quaint pub with character and lively atmosphere. Staff are soo friendly and really interact with you. Nothing is too much trouble. Very busy for food, although we didn't eat there as we were going to a function, but the breakfast was fab. We enjoyed it so much, we have booked to go back in the New Year
