Strathmore Arms at Holwick
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 30 June 2012

This pub is one of the last old fashioned pubs left where you can enjoy a good pint of real ale, chat to friendly locals and tourists, and tuck into a tasty home made meal or sunday lunch in a bar that still has a real open fire. Off the beaten track but well worth finding this little hidden gem in the heart of Teesdale. The hosts, Anthony and Selin make you feel welcome and do their best to keep this wonderful pub alive. For walkers this is an excellent place to start and finish.

Stayed at the Strathmore Arms with 3 friends booking all 3 bedrooms for 1 night.

The owners are new and have a brought a new lease of life to the place.

Rooms were good, the food was nice and Anthony and Selena were very welcoming. If you are a pool lover then there is also a great pool room as well.

Overall an excellent stay.

Good luck to anothong & Selena with building the business up - a great start I would say.

I have twice been to this pub.
The last time I arrived was with a group of eight very wet muddy walkers.
We couldn't have been made more welcome.
Lovely fire. Carrot cake and tea and coffee appeared as if by magic as well as the normal pub drinks.
One of the best pubs I've been to recently.

Had a lovely couple of nights here in Spring, midweek. Plenty to see within walking distance, and lots of wildlife (human & otherwise). Pleasant pub and warm welcome; good choice of beers. Wish the new Owners lots of success in the Summer; we'll be using the answers & skills from the pub's Quiz Night at our local village club tonight, but bet/hope we don't sweep the board there!

Room Tip: 4 rooms upstairs; two face front/north, two face to sides - views from all. All are located directl...

Stayed nearby for a few days and visited several times.

This is a lovely example of a Traditional English Pub being run by a great dedicated couple. We were made so welcome by the owners and the locals it was a joy to visit.

The food is simple but good and generous portions - the cheese board is a must with a great selection of cheeses. Well kept beers and a lovely atmosphere, also they are very dog friendly.

We will be back in the near future and hope to stay at the pub next time.

We called at the pub at lunch time on our walk, and enjoyed a pint outside in the garden, and we took the opportunity to book for an evening meal, as it was Saturday.

The menu isn't extensive, but everything is home cooked and very tasty. The couple (newly relocated from Derby) who own the pub were welcoming and the atmosphere was warm and friendly.

If you tried this pub some years ago, give it another go - on our previous visit it had some VERY blue comedians - its a very different ambience now. Its neatly placed just outside Middleton in Teesdale - turn right after the cattle market out of the village. The road ends at the 'village' of Holwick, so you won't be passing it as you drive around the area.

The do Sunday lunches, but nothing on Sunday evenings - be warned, as we were planning to go back the next day! They do also offer accommodation.

Its a traditional English pub; they are getting few and far between!

We have just stayed the week in a holiday cottage in the village of Holwick. The pub is 100 yards down hill and on arrival we quickly unpacked and strolled down. Whst a delight! We were welcomed with a big open wire and an old fashioned pub, unspoiled and original. Anthony and Selina the hosts were welcoming and helpful and within an hour we felt like locals..and by the end of the week we felt like we had been visiting friends. We visited the pub regularly during the week and the food was excellent. Nothing was too much trouble, Nicely presented, hot and was exactly as described, good honest pub food and all
freshly cooked. The Sunday lunch (we had a pork and a beef) were extremely tasty.Proper veg and quality meat.
We took our dog Jess in and she was made extremely welcome (and fell in love with their dog Bailey). The locals are very friendly and chatty and we really felt at home. The location is stunning,.... views to die for and walks across the fells and by the river are beautiful.
Anthony keeps a good range of ales and spirits. We intend to stay in one of their b and b rooms soon, ....cant wait to try the breakfast if the bar food is anything to go by.!!!!!!!!!!
A lovely couple in a lovely pub.....
Thanks to both of you, you made our holiday very special.
