The Lord Crewe Arms in the pretty village of Blanchland was reinvented three years ago – and if you haven’t yet dined there it needs to jump to the top of your “must go” list.
Set within historic buildings that date back to the 12th Century, with stone-flagged floors, huge open fireplaces and a pub bar within the former crypt, it is renowned for its unique atmosphere.
The 21 beautiful bedrooms are shared between the main hotel, adjacent cottages and a former temperance inn opposite, and there are breathtaking views from the walled gardens.
Head chef Simon Hicks and his team deliver tantalisingly tasty food in modern British style using the best of the local landscape as their inspiration.
The only establishment to be listed in Tatler’s 2018 restaurant guide for Durham and Northumberland and named 2018 Good Pub Guide’s Inn of the Year, Tatler’s reviewer described it as “pure magic”.
The restored Gatehouse opposite the hotel opened a year ago and is established as an exciting space for foodie events and private entertaining.
Here, guests gather to watch chefs demonstrate their skills, tasting the fruits of their labours over lunch. In the evening Simon Hicks and invited guest chefs host dinners with the opportunity to chat and discover great cooking.
The Gatehouse is available for private events taking over the entire space for exclusive use – sitting room, atmospheric dining room and demo kitchen.
