A warm and friendly Victorian inn, situated on the outskirts of Eggleston village on the moors road from Barnard Castle to Stanhope, with spectacular views across Teesdale. There is a welcoming main bar with separate public bar where dogs are welcome, and a large function room. Up to two guest ales are on handpump, often from local micros. Occasional beer festivals are hosted. With good home-cooked food and en-suite B&B accommodation, this is a good stopping off point for those travelling to and from Scotland.
