Food & Drinks

5 star

If you are looking for delicious food in Upper Teesdale then you've come to the right place.

We pride ourselves in offering good, wholesome home cooked food, plenty of it and at reasonable prices.  There's always a great selection of puddings, cakes and tray bakes to satisfy your sweet tooth.  We have a children's menu suitable for under 12's.

We use fresh free range eggs from our own hens, we make our own jam, chutney, cakes and scones. In the garden we have our own poly tunnel where we grow lettuce, tomatoes, herbs, fruit and vegetables to use in the kitchen.

Sunday lunches with homemade Yorkshire puddings, fresh vegetables, real roasties and local meat are served every week from 12 noon until 2.30pm (or until it's gone), booking is recommended.       

As a 'Free House' we are able to offer a great range of locally brewed cask ales.  We aim to provide our customers with the opportunity to try something different.  We have four hand pumps and change what's on offer regularly, often revisiting the firm favourites!  The more established and well known brews are also available such as Jennings and Black Sheep.  Craft gins and cocktails seem to be popular these days too and you won't be disappointed with what we have on offer.  We also have a great range of bottled ciders to compliment the ones we have on draught.

You can choose to eat in one of our two cosy little bars, in the tearoom or outdoors on the patio, in the courtyard or in the garden.  We serve food all day every day from 10am until 8pm Sunday to Thursday, and 8.30pm on Fridays and Saturdays.  We have seasonal favourites and an ever-changing specials board in the bar.

The majority of our meals are available as take-aways along with hot and cold drinks.

If you're part of a group, ask about our special menus and great group discounts.  We can comfortably seat 60 people in the tearoom which also doubles up as our function room for those special occasions.

We can offer non-residents early breakfasts to set you up for a days fishing or for the prefect end to bird watching from dawn.  You can buy a substantial packed lunch from the hotel too as well as children's lunch boxes.

Did you know we do outside catering, special occasion cakes and shoot lunches?  

Whatever your needs and requirements are, we can cater for them. From individuals to groups, special dietary requirements like gluten free, vegetarian and vegan, dairy free, special occasions to picnics and children's parties.  Don't hesitate to get in touch to discuss your needs.
