WIth its “very good, sophisticated and well presented” food, chef-patron Marcus Bennett's award-winning fifteenth-century coaching inn remains a top local draw since opening in 2008, and is now part of the local Teesside mini-empire he runs with Jonathan Hall. While it’s on “the same level as some upmarket restaurants in London, unfortunately also the same prices” apply!

Modernised 15th-century coaching inn in a “lovely” village setting that’s “well worth the trip from Newcastle” thanks to its “excellent” cuisine: look out for the “changing specials board” and “splendid local game in season”.

For 31 years we've been curating reviews of the UK's most notable restaurant. In a typical year, diners submit over 50,000 reviews to create the most authoritative restaurant guide in the UK. Each year, the guide is re-written from scratch based on this survey (although for the 2021 edition, reviews are little changed from 2020 as no survey could run for that year).
