Stayed here as we were attending a friends wedding in the area. The pub was very nice & the rooms were clean and tidy. Overall the pub and rooms are excellent value for money and we wouldn't have any hesitation about staying again.

Stayed at the Lambton for the 1st time over the weekend. It's a great value for money pub with some hotel rooms. The pub is clean and tidy with good food and drinks. The hotel rooms are large and clean and beds comfortable. There's a little bit of noise from the pub but that was expected as I read that... More

A busy weekend with "Toon" football on, people arriving to stay overnight for the Great North Run. The staff took time to serve everyone in a warm and welcoming manner. The Manager was brilliant sorting out our issues, easily sorted. Food was good value for money, beer was far far better than the poor stuff you get down south. A... More

Thank you for your review, I am sorry that you were disappointed with the food you received. Although you state other people were complaining about the food, I can only take it that you didn't complain as you don't mention speaking to anyone and we have no record of your complaint at the pub.

Can't fault the Lambton Arms for value! Stayed one night on business and looking for somewhere close to train station and this was ideal, less than 5 minutes walk from Chester-le-street station. Room was large and spotlessly clean, lovely bathroom with power shower and bath, lashings of hot water. Large double bed was the most comfortable bed I have slept... More

A long drive in testing conditions, I just wanted to settle in and unwind. In trying to check in, I was required to pay up front – no problem, except that their card machine either was not working or its use not understood.

Thank you for your recent review - in respect to your points, we had no other issues with accepting anyone else's credit card or debit card payments either before or after you checked in so maybe the issue was with your cards.
