About the Pub

On the banks of the Wear, on the A689. The spacious stone-flagged bar is partially fitted out with items salvaged from the former village chapel, and is a great place to catch up on local news. The restaurant has a patio overlooking the river, while the beer is brewed beneath your feet. Food, including the famous Sunday carvery, with sittings at noon and 1pm, is locally sourced. Local CAMRA Country Pub of the Year Runner-up in 2015.
