Has been slowly picking up since it changed hands. Now got the food sorted, good quality pub grub and the chef likes to try some new combinations - I had skewered king pawns with chilli jam last time and it was great. good real ales on tap as well. Keep it up!

After reading other reviews e just had to treat ourselves to a Sunday lunch. Now for those of a small stomach you will need to let your belt out one maybe two notches. We pre booked and asked if we could share a meal, this was not a problem to them. The staff were really helpful, the ale on tap... More

Very friendly landlord/land lady and we always feel welcomed. Food is generally good but Sunday lunches are fab! Portion sizes are generous and they don't skimp on veggies -which we love! Only small snag, sometimes service can be a little slow but that said, we love the place!

I've previously heard not good things about this pub due to the previous occupants but I thought I'd try it out as it had been taken over. It's safe to say I'm glad I did! We were welcomed straight away by a lovely lady (later found out she was the landlady when she came to talk to us) we were... More

Popped in for the first time having pasted on lots of occasions whilst motorcycling in weardale. Must say the staff and host were all so help full informing us that we could eat in any of the rooms. We opted for the lounge and all three of us had Sunday lunch which was faultless and great value for the price.... More
