The Hare and Hounds, Garmondsway, Bishop Middleham County durham. 01740 654661. Traditional pub lunches - brilliant. Try my favourite minced dumplings and leek dumplings with chips. they are talking orders for Christmas lunch very reasonable too and the New Years Eve Celebrations is under ?20 per head. :)

Yes, another pub out in the middle of nowhere.  Closed down a while back but re-opened with new owners and highly recommend by the majority who have visited. Even the Mayor of Ferryhill ate there for regular Sunday lunch so that can't be bad can it?

Here it is ! Going tonight !!!!



Garmondsway, Bishop Middleham, Co Durham DL17 9DT
Tel: 01740 654661 Fax: 01740 650425

The Hare and Hounds is a cosy family-run business, which originally started life as a row of simple, slate roofed cottages in 1771, and then became a coaching inn in the 1800s. Tastefully and smartly furnished inside with patterned upholstery and carpets, the pub has retained plenty of character with an oak beamed ceiling, dark wood furniture and a bare brick fireplace. The Restaurant offers an excellent home cooked selection of A La Carte and traditional pub fayre menus. British sirloin steaks a speciality.

Back home and feeling really full. The pub is pleasant and all the staff seemed really friendly. The menu is on the expensive side of things and the service isn't lightning fast, but the portion sizes are generous and everything is cooked to perfection, so no complaints.

Had a nice meal of Cumberland Sausage with onion gravy and veg. The squeeze had Gammon and pineapple. Ahh, the things we have to do for this board, eh  :?:  :wink:

Recommended.

Isn't this the pub that Niall Quinn used to part-own?

Not sure, but it's pretty close to where his house used to be.

You mean he doesn't live in that cottage on the way to Sedgefield anymore?  Everytime we drive past I say to my wife "Nial Quinn lives there", which is the source of much frustration.  Do you know who lives there now so I can correct myself next time I drive past?

The Hare & Hounds is a good pub and it's handy for a Sunday morning stroll and a couple of pints before lunch.

Have eaten there only a couple of times though.

Don't know mate. I remember him putting it up for sale some time ago, when he stopped playing footy at Sunderland. Don't know if he actually sold it though, just presuming. It had stables and all sorts and was advertised for about ?450,000 if I remember rightly.

Returned to The Hare and Hounds after an absence of 7 months. It was a wild, windy wet night so it was nice to get inside. The pub wasn't at all busy, there were 4 or 5 tables occupied and more arrived later.

We were attended to straight away and the waitress got us our drinks before taking the food order. Food came quicker this time than last, with maybe a little more choice too, with a small blackboard of specials available. We shared a garlic ciabbata to start, with a little side salad, then I ordered Beef Lasagne and Cruella had Steak Pie. Both were extremely well presented, with salad and home made chips and were very tasty. Not too much to eat, just about right. The chips were filling so I only had about 4!

We washed it down with coffee and returned home contented.

A very nice barmeal.
