We went for Christmas lunch and was very pleasantly surprised, great choice and great value for money. The staff were very friendly and nothing was a problem. Reasonable parking adjacent to the pub.

What a great pub, the beer brewed at the micro brewery located on the premises is superb, normally have four beers on tap, three home brewed and a guest ale. The locals are a friendly bunch and Sunday lunches, it's best to book in advance. It's this sort of establishment that needs to be supported.

Hi David, many thanks for your kind review. We certainly are blessed with a great set of locals - you're never alone in the Surtees. We're pleased you enjoyed the ales, too. If you're in the area at Halloween, keep an eye out for our beer festival! Cheers, Alan H. More

I love this pub! The atmosphere has always been great and there is an on site brewery! It used to be my local but unfortunately I couldn't take the pub with me when I moved. Definitely worth a look in for a pint or two ;)
