The Shepherd and Shepherdess, Beamish

The Shepherd and Shepherdess is a great family friendly pub that serves good food and great beer. The pub has recently been awarded cask marque status for the exceptional quality of its beers and ales. Food is served all day and the menus is a varied collection of pub favourites. All food is homemade on site and all ingredients are locally sourced and what a difference this makes! Their mixed grill is an enormous feast and not to be missed. The service here is always friendly and the manager Ian keeps a very well run pub. It's a great place to eat if visiting The Beamish Museum as it's just outside the main museum entrance. They also have a great children's play area to keep the little ones happy. We are regular visitors and would highly recommend The Shepherd and Shepherdess to anyone.

The Coachman, Whickham

This pub is now transformed from it's lacklustre days by the new Management team headed by Jackie. The Coachman has just won Cask Marque status for the fine quality of it's beer and ales, and the food is pretty good too. The Coachman serves a varied menu of pub staples all home cooked and made from locally sourced ingredients. Food is served from Thursday to Sunday. Whilst Thursday Friday and Saturday nights are steak nights. We had a great Steak meal on Thursday, cooked to perfection served with homemade chips onion rings grilled tomato and salad. They also do a great 3 course Sunday lunch special for £10 per person which includes soup, an enormous full roast with all the trimmings and a pudding. Make sure you go hungry!! The Coachman also has a large self contained function room which can hold up to 130 people and is available to hire for free. They also have a special party for £99 offer which includes room hire and a buffet for up to 100 people. They are happy to cater for any event from children's parties, charity events, family parties, funerals. Ring and speak to Jackie and she will be more than happy to help. The Coachman is a great friendly pub tucked away in a leafy corner of Whickham. I would recommend it to anyone looking for a good night out in an old fashioned pub with great service, great beer and friendly locals.

The Edinburgh Arms, York

When I work away from home in York I often stay here. The rooms are very good value, clean and comfortable. The food is home cooked and also good value. The locals are friendly and it's good to have a game of pool or watch the football in the evening. I would recommend it to anyone contracting in York.
