Booked 4 people for lunch, on arriving all greatly enjoyed food and all had different meals with delicious desserts, great staff, very attentive, maybe a tad more expensive than the norm but you get what you pay for.

Yet again a smashing evening at the Stockton. Gorgeous food, the belly pork is to die for, as is the confit duck. Everyone is so charming and friendly. Service is great. Thanks for giving us our pub back.

Had a family meal here in June after the refurb. Could not fault it at all, excellent service and lovely food using local produce. Will definitely visit again and would definitely recommend.

Hi, sorry for the delay in answering we don't really bother with trip advisor..... Yes dogs are more than welcome, all we ask is that they are well behaved and kept on a lead at all times.
