This pub tucked away near the train in Stockton is a delight for any visitor. Kath will remember your dinner and drink even months after your visit. The starters are wonderful and large portions that dent your appetite but beware! the steaks are 10 oz plus and worth saving room for. the addition of a topping sqauce makes it a... More

We ate at The Norton Tavern last Saturday, on the spur of the moment, in the bar. The steak pie and the gammon are highly recommended by us. I have to particularly mention the vegetables - a great variety, beautifully cooked and hot. The owners and the staff are lovely. We will certainly be visiting again and now know (from... More

Enjoyed an excellent lunch at the Norton Tavern. Had the cod while my fellow diners enjoyed the steak pie and the parmo. All three meals were fantastic as were all the sides dishes we ordered. Outstanding friendly staff in lovely surroundings. Looking forward to trying a few of the other dishes in the very near future. Well done to the... More

whilst the food was of a good quality and the service was good, serving cold lamb on a sunday lunch spoilt the meal for me, others at the table had roast beef which they said was only just warm. Vegetables were hot but the lunch was not to my taste, I prefer my meat to be served hot.

We visited the tavern for a lovely sunday lunch and got just that. The staff were very nice, the prices were very reasonable, and it was a very fine establishment indeed. My opinion on this place couldn't be any better. Highly recommended :)

We had used the Tavern occasionally in the past but after we heard it had new owners we gave it another try. What a good thing we did!!!! Mal and Kath, the new owners and all the staff are so welcoming and nothing is too much trouble. The newly done beer garden is all enclosed and such a sun trap.... More

It's a long time since we last ate at the Tavern, but we thought we'd give it a go under the new management. The food was excellent. I had the beef and my wife had the lamb. Both were cooked fantastically well and the salt police hadn't stopped the chef from properly seasoning both. They kindly provided a child's portion... More
