Stayed here with the family as we wanted to be close to Beamish museum. We found the Beamish Mary Inn to be good value. Rooms were adequate, bathrooms could have done with some upgrading but we were only in the room to sleep so it was fine for our needs. We had a good evening meal and a decent full... More

Entering the b and b through the pub was to say the least a little bit smelly but thank goodness to enter the internal area where the upstairs accommodation was, appeared to be far cleaner. Rooms clean, and a kettle in order to make a drink, which was nice. Far from a star rated place but adequate for an over... More

Took my boys here on our trip to the North East. From booking to being welcomed on the evening itself, the staff couldn't have been nicer. The food was good, the beer was better and the following morning's breakfast was better still. A fair price too.

Booked 1 night after getting stranded 100 miles from home at Beamish museum following a car break down. The people were amazing!! A local resident gave us a lift to nearby asda to get some supplies (had nothing!) Food was lovely room spotless and warm. Staff couldn't do anymore for us, offered lifts if needed and found us a phone... More

Visited Christmas Day, very disappointing. Tables were mis-matched (different heights and sizes) so looked like a naff kids party and we had cheap PLASTIC cutlery for the starters. Starter was below average, bland and a very small portion. Waited more than an hour for main to arrive, was told that they were serving the room table by table and we... More

The welcome was very friendly from Craig the barman who politely showed us to the room,number 1,which was clean well decorated and quiet. It had two double beds and a shower room . We went for a drink before... More

This is a basic, reasonable hotel above a pub. Great range of CAMERA beers and not far to get to bed. ALL the staff were very friendly and helpful. The room was basic with our own bathroom across the hall but this was no problem. Convenient for the museum Huge breakfasts which set us up for the day.

We had booked two nights as part of a birthday trip to celebrate a 60th at Beamish and before we'd even spent one night here decided that we wouldn't be staying a second and spent our evening looking up a local travel lodge which was much nicer for the second night! Upon arrival at the Beamish Mary we were made... More

My friend and I were attending the Rock Ridge country music festival. We enjoyed our stay at the Beamish Mary. Truly an olde world pub with very pleasant staff. The breakfast was superb. Not five star luxury, but down to earth, friendly service in clean, comfortable surroundings. Would certainly return.
