Overview

Stocc Lodge is a tribute to the origins of the name Stockton, thought by some to derive from the Anglo Saxon word Stocc, meaning Log. So to answer your question, we've kind of called the pub Log Lodge (in Anglo Saxon). We've tried to capture the spirit and feel of a relaxed Lodge with a complete overhaul of the interior and exterior of the pub with wooden panelling, reclaimed wood flooring and a feature fireplace, chimney and hearth, for fireside eating and drinking (think Alpine re-treat without the snow...or ski's).

The Rimswell has now been renamed THE STOCC LODGE. The refurb is really good, well done, but that is about it. We had pre-booked a table, when we arrived at 6.40 the first thing we were told was they do not take bookings, the young...More

Needs a good old revamp this place, used to be good but slowly becoming derelict. Food is okay, nothing special, drinks are super cheap.
