The Black Bull Inn


Uniquely, this family-run, independent country pub has its own church bells - not to mention a great range of real ales to enjoy after a spot of bell-ringing. Located next to Weardale steam railway station, it has cosy, music-free rooms, a stone-flagged bar and open fires in Victorian ranges. The ad hoc beer festivals demonstrate unwavering backing for local microbreweries, while the kitchen is equally supportive of the regional suppliers behind the food. A meal might take in potted North Shields crab; pan-roasted pheasant breast, apricot and walnut stuffing, potato and squash dauphinoise and red cabbage; and sticky toffee pudding with ginger ice cream.
