Handy both for the fascinating open air museum at Beamish and the historic heart of Chester-le-Street, this thriving hotel bar attracts much custom from ramblers and riders enjoying the glorious countryside. Thirsts are quenched by beers from the respected microbrewery at the Beamish complex, whilst keen appetites will be satisfied by dishes created from the freshest local and seasonal produce. The menu of modern classics and daily specials ranges across the spectrum, from breaded cod, haddock and crayfish tail fishcakes with ratatouille to sirloin steak and garlic butter tiger prawns, finishing with sticky toffee and date pudding with caramel cream sauce.
