It has been 2 years since we were here last and thankfully it is still a great venue. The hanging baskets are some of the most spectacular you will see, then when you get into the restaurant the view across the valley is stunning. The decor is plain but comfortable in both the restaurant and the bar. We had dinner tonight which was a great steak pie filled with tender meat for me. They also do other pub favourites as well as pasta and Thai dishes. For dessert we shared trifle and cheesecake. Prices are reasonable. They do a good choice of guest beers too.

We wanted to celebrate my son's A level results with a special meal out and were not disappointed. We received a very warm welcome and nothing was too much trouble. After ordering our food, the chef came out to see how we would like our food cooked which was really appreciated. I had ordered the Thai Green Curry and could relax in the knowledge that it was going to be 'medium spiced'. We were served quickly and the food was beautifully presented. My sons loved their meals, especially the chips which were cooked to perfection! The portions were very generous, so much so that we didn't have room for dessert. The views over the valley from the restaurant were stunning and an added bonus. All in all, it was a very enjoyable experience.

Off the cuff visit after a late drop in to Ushaw College and the old church (previously a seminary).
We were accommodated quickly and given recommendations by the very friendly and efficient staff. Gluten free facilitated (thank you!).
Food was delivered efficiently, was tasty and ample. We will return.

Lovely meal with fresh ingredients ... succulent steaks, vine tomatoes, crispy salad and chips to die for. Will definitely be back.
