The Teesdale Hotel

  • Description

    On arriving we determined that Middleton-in-Teesdale had three pubs – we'd passed The Bridge Inn on the way into town, but wasn't doing food. A second next to our B&B was closed – it looked like it had closed for good, but it could just have been an annual holiday. Which left this place by default – the rather grand looking Teesdale Hotel which looked like it might be a pretty good pub. Except it wasn't a pub. It actually was a hotel. The bar area at the back was full of people drinking before food, and whilst the Jennings Cumberland Ale and Martsons Pedigree were well recieved, we were drinking them in a bland room with uncomfortable looking pink chairs (we were sat at the bar). Dining was of course done in the dining room, with a menu that looked rather strange for a plush looking hotel, which huge amounts of fancy cutlery on the tables to go with your scampi and chips, and various other vaguely 1970s type dishes. The single waitress frequently disappeared for ages just when you wanted something. Frankly the whole experience was rather odd.
