Lovely Inn

Have eaten at the Inn many times, and have always enjoyed our evenings and would recommend it. Food is good quality, really nice surroundings and excellent service. Nice outside area if the weather allows, but the drinks are a bit on the pricey side.

An excellent Traditional English Lunch including Beef & Yorkshire Pudding served with tastily prepared vegetables with Creme-Leek space and individual Gravy Jugs. ( I liked that touch) This Old Coaching Inn offers a cosy atmosphere, with an option to eat in the bar,lounge or formal dining room. Picture-esque village location in the beautiful County of Durham.

Been to eat here a few times and would recommend it for nice food, good atmosphere and reasonable pricing. Menu is nice without being too big. Food is good quality, espcially the Black pudding salad Also have a nice outside area if the weather is warm

Busy with families and couples, our Sunday roast was well cooked and presented, not over salted, proper yorkshires and tasty gravy. Pan fried trout for the non meat eater was also pleasing on the eye and well sauced. Good cask beers added to our enjoyment. A good spot if you someone else to cook Sunday lunch

To break up a long drive home after some time away, we stopped off at the Castle Eden Inn for a late Sunday lunch. It was a pleasant interlude but not one that I would go out of my way to repeat. Postives: Even at 4pm on a Sunday afternoon the Inn was bustling and had a really positive lively... More

Went here as a group of work colleagues just before Christmas. Really looked forward to it but every course was attempted style over substance. 3 scallops on a fancy plate does not make a starter. Very small portion of sea bass for main...3 or 4 small portions of potatoes underneath. Prices quite high for the area. Would not hasten back.

The meals had been preordered before said date however came out at different times leaving some waiting a lot longer than others. I cannot excuse a under cooked chicken as one member of our party was served. Very disappointed with table... More
