Was made to feel very welcome by the staff. Food was all homemade, well presented and it all tastes delicious. I had steak and ale puff pastry pie which was very tasty. Servings were very generous. Was extremely well priced. Two adults, three children, drinks, mains and desserts for all - £30! Unbelievable! Will definitely return.

We originally booked to stay at the pub for 2 nights but decided to leave after one night, partly because the Beamish Museum wasn't fully open and partly because the Beamish Mary Inn didn't live up to our expectations. Although the staff were very friendly, there was a lack of professionalism. On arrival we were asked what time we would... More

Great little pub with friendly staff, excellent real ales and good food. The apple crumble we had was made from apples grown by the owners father! We never tire of this pub! Really handy for Beamish museum, 10 minute walk, does B&B too. What else do you need?

Stayed at the Beamish Mary on a bed & breakfast request. Had a family room as my husband and I took our grandchildren with us. The room was pleasant and the staff were very obliging. We actually went back for our evening meals and the host

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.
