Description: The Fir Tree Country Hotel, bar and restaurant is nestled in the small village of Fir Tree itself and is surrounded by beautiful countryside, right on the doorstep of the Durham Dales. Just a 10 minutes drive to Bishop Auckland and only 12 miles from the City of Durham we are ideally situated to take advantage of the many local attractions and historic sites in our region. After a major refurbishment lasting over 18 months The Fir Tree Country Hotel, bar and restaurant reopened its doors. We welcome you to our beautiful, new surroundings, whether you’re having a meal in our restaurant or just a quiet drink in the bar we feel confident that your first visit won’t be your last. There has been a bar on the site for well over 120 years now, which has become a landmark in the village and surrounding area. The completely revamped restaurant now seats over 70 people comfortably in a pleasant atmosphere.

We'd had a bit of a rough time at a local hotel. Staff here made us so welcome. Decor was lovely with real fires and cosy areas. Food was gorgeous and a really good choice. Had a look at the accommodation - first class finish and really good value. Family room will be great when finished and we'll be looking to book it when up for a family engagement.

A great little restaurant, pleasantly surprised with the fantastic food and the service to match, couldn’t fault the meal at all, the young staff were faultless and very reasonably priced for the quality of food. With a great selection of meals on the menu we’ll definitely be back to try a few more selections. The most difficult part of the night was trying to decide what to have from the excellent menu. Well done.

The food looks homemade and it was amazing ,you get a lot for your money ,we got that much on the starter we shared it ,,the pie was that big on my mains I couldn’t eat it all so they asked me if I wanted to take it home with me which I thought was nice of them.. I didn’t try a desert but will be going back for that ......the staff are very friendly. The place is lovely decorated.. there is plenty of room between the tables if you are going with a pushchair or wheelchair definitely a place to go for a lovely relaxing meal 5* all round

Stayed for one night. Rooms are chalet style and are immaculate. Very good choice for breakfast and all the staff were very friendly and helpful.
Drinks in the bar are expensive but the meals are very reasonable.
