I am gluton free and this is the best I have encountered for recognition of the difficulties of this diet when eating out. Service from staff is absolutely brilliant, they all,make you feel so welcome and can't do enough to make sure your happy. Will...

Popped in here today and we were the only ones eating . Not the biggest of menus but friendly staff and for £5.95 a decent plate of food. Probably a bit tired around the edges and little atmosphere , maybe a bit background music or something to liven the place up but yes I'd be back as enjoyed the food...

Treated myself and sister to afternoon tea, the food was excellent and the service was second to none!!! Very generous with the tea as we were offered refills of milk and top ups of the teapot, we were even given extra cups for the others that came with us who were having a meal.

We spent a couple of nights at the Park head Hotel on business as it was quite close to where we were working at Bishop Auckland. We arrived fairly late on a Sunday evening, but were still able to get a bar meal (scampi) which was very tasty. Our rooms were located on the other side of the courtyard which...

My youngest Daughter treated us to afternoon tea here. It's the 2nd time I've been, the first being a couple of Christmas' ago when I would have preferred the normal afternoon tea and not the Christmas themed cakes. However this one was great. The sandwiches and cakes were lovely and the service excellent. Would definitely return.

We had a lovely night at the Park Head last Frida. Welcomed by pipers, traditional Scottish fayre, true Burns' night speeches then some lovely music by a local group to finish off with. It was great to hear Burns' songs and to be able to sing along, thanks to the songsheets we were given. Ending the night with Auld Lang...

Thursday 26th January 2017 At Christmas we received a voucher for afternoon tea at the Park Head Hotel. As we have dietary requirements I rang the hotel to ask if they could accommodate our needs. The receptionist rang me back and said that it was no problem. We arrived next day and were welcomed by friendly staff and were shown...

Weekday Lunch. Staff couldn't be more helpful and friendly. Promptly attended to promptly served. Portions were tiny. Chips looked and tasted underdone or reheated. Chicken was over-cooked and tough. A bit embarrassing as the staff are excellent. Sincere apologies from manager no charge for the meal. What a disappointment. I would only go back because of the very genuinely friendly...
