“Groupon deal”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 25, 2013

We stayed here on Saturday night with a Groupon £59 for dinner and a room. The room (2) was newly furnished/decorated with a big bed and large bathroom. The floor was a little lopsided but it's obviously an old building. In the room there was complimentary soap, shampoo, shower gel, bottled water and the usual tea tray. The food was good - we had a scallop starter and soft shell crabs both of which were tasty albeit I think they over did the salad! My husband had the lamb shank main and I had a rare steak (cooked to perfection) after my first two choices were not available. There was plenty of veg, salad, chips etc. with the meal. I had to pay a little extra for the steak and the scallops but was told this in advance. We then spent the rest of the evening on a comfy sofa in the bar area. The staff were really friendly and I would recommend a visit here - especially if you can get a similar Groupon offer! We also had a walk round the village (has a couple of nice craft/ornament type shops and even a patisserie) and popped in to the Dun Cow for a drink, which was lovely.

Room Tip: Room 2 was large, with a big bathroom and bed. It is also the first room you come to so less far to...

We went on a Groupon deal for a paramo and yes, the service was slow but it was busy and the portions were good but I wouldn't go back.
The pub was quaint and homely but the locals were locals and did look at you like you shouldn't be there!
Shame as it would have been a nice meal otherwise.

Well i think i must of gone on a dodgy night. We went with a groupon voucher for Parmo & sides, we opted for chips and salad - the chips certainly were not home cooked, they were not even a good quality frozen chip. The parmo had no taste whatsoever, the salad had no dressing and the coleslaw extremely bland, infact the whole plate of food was tasteless.
I feel i must of gone to a different place having read the other reviews - either that or the chef doesnt know how to cook a parmo, the white sauce was solid and the cheese didnt even taste like cheese. We had salt and pepper on the table but when asked for sauces, vinegar etc, was brought
a bowl of sachets of various things - like you would get in a takeaway.
The place itself is nice and the staff pleasant but that is the only good thing i can say.

We have just visited this pub and have been so pleased with the service. The decor is wonderful, the staff were very friendly and sociable as well as being so polite and helpful. with a large pot of team, the fish and chips were out of this world. We would have no hesitation in returning to sample the evening menu. Thank you for a lovely lunch.

Excellent hotel with excellent rooms and excellent food. This hotel does not do breakfasts but it do evening meals. I would rather have B&D (dinner) than B&B for the same price - anyone can cook a breakfast but it takes a chef to cook the evening meals. Total value for money along with friendly staff. RECOMMENDED

Room Tip: all rooms are good

We've just rolled out of here. Really really really lovely food.

Greeted by very friendly and attentive staff. Nice straight forward menu. We chose Thai and a great choice too. I went for Thai green chicken and my partner chose Red King prawns. WOW.
Delicious, authentic and truly amazing portions.

Do we recommend. .Yes

I really enjoy thai food and this place serves one of the best I have tasted. The food is served piping hot and very plentiful. I had the prawns in oyster ginger and black bean sauce and the prawns a really big and juicy, the flavours were fantastic, the wife had the stir fry prawns and again excellent. We just managed to finish it all off there was that much I was absolutely stuffed. The chef and his staff were brilliant from the moment we walked in to the moment we walked out. Will I visit again
most certainly and will be trying the Parmo next. We had living social deals and they are so good value for money we have bought a load more. This is one place I will visit time and time again as long as it stays as good as it has been. A must restaurant to visit if your in the Sedgefield area.
