My mam has strong memories of Teesdale, after wartime evacuation from Sunderland. She uses a wheelchair, but we had a good trip to High Force today. The staff at the High Force Hotel were really helpful and pro-active with access. The food is good quality homemade pub fare. I have fond memories of corned beef and onion pie as a... More

Ordered a Ploughman's Lunch which was awful. Tomatoes soft and past their SB date as were the pickled onions. The lettuce was brown and bruised and the pickle cheap and nasty the ham and Pork Pie the same. Crusty bread was supposed to be included but what turned up was sliced white sawdust. Staff rude and very unhelpful. By all... More

Lovely setting and after a walk to high force with family who had travelled up from London to spend weekend celebrating a family birthday we all decided to eat at lunchtime here. Food was the worst I have ever had in a pub in England . Chips were disgusting soggy as I they had clearly been leftovers from the da... More

We stopped off here for lunch, half-way round a circular walk from Bowlees visitor centre. The staff were very friendly and the menu looked OK. But unfortunately, this was a really disappointing meal: both our orders came with chips which appeared to have been cooked several hours beforehand and kept warm under a lamp. Soggy, limp, disgusting... and the corned... More

I visit this fine hostelry regularly, always to be met with a warm and friendly welcome by Jan, Kev and all the team. Fine cask ales, well kept by their excellent cellar-man (employing the same system used by a familiar brewery in Masham...) and lovely freshly prepared-to-order food (served with home-made chips) all at a very reasonable price. Service is... More

We stayed here on the 2nd bank holiday weekend in May and we had an amazing time. We stayed three nights and the staff and owners were fantastic. They could not be more accommodating, the room was lovely and the food excellent. They had a local guest beer on the bar which was exquisite and we are already planning to... More

My wife and I were walking from Low Force to High Force then back round to the visitor centre at Bowlees and were in need of refreshments. We called here and both had drinks and some chips. We couldn't fault the refreshments and the staff were also very friendly.

Went for food here first, not very busy, lovely welcome from behind the bar, food ordered and we went and sat down. Literally 10 minutes later and it arrived! Home made corned beef pie,chunky home made brown chips and garden peas with gravy... More

My fiancée and I stopped off here while walking between Bowlees Visitor Centre and High Force (waterfalls). We only had a snack so cannot comment on the quality of their main restaurant meals. We ordered scones, with cream and jam. The scones were okay. The jam was jam, in a little sealed container. The cream was the 'squirty cream' type;... More
