Had Sunday roast brilliant as usual followed on wednesday by the fish special this time Hake but it does not matter what the fish is as the fish special is always excellent. Have had bass and bream in the past both brilliant.

We were drawn to The Cott Inn for it's age and longevity...Exterior was stunning but the interior was rather out of character and the welcome was 'lacking'..so we left without eating/ordering...

After almost twenty years away I decided to treat my daughter to lunch. Remembering how popular it had been previously I decided to make it an early one. We arrived at about 1140 to discover that opening time was 12 O'clock. However we were not the only ones who were unaware, they like us thought the wait worth the trouble.... More

What a brilliant place. From arrival on an afternoon that was meant to be wet, but wasn't, to leaving on a wonderfully sunny Sunday morning, everything was great. This establishment deserves all the accolades it has and expects to get. The food was beautifully presented and perfectly cooked, if you have never had squid, you must try it here, just... More

Ambience only surpassed by the quality of the meal - we are vegetarians and left well-sated. Staff extraordinarily friendly. If not staying close by its worth a trip.

We called in for a lunchtime pint a couple of months ago following a walk around Darlington Hall. It had been a decade since my last visit so I didn't know what to expect. We walked in to a cosy bar with roaring wood burners creating a very welcoming atmosphere. The restaurant was busy and the food looked good, well... More

We first visited The Cott Inn last March and loved it. We re-visited today and were not disappointed. The atmosphere is relaxed, the staff friendly and the food delicious. The crab sandwich was delicious, as were the mussels. The lasagne from the kids menu was also a real hit. I thoroughly recommend!

So, so, busy for a midweek lunchtime and so glad we booked! We had to wait for a while but our meals were well worth the wait. I had the seafood salad. This was served in a very unusual plate/dish and beautifully presented. The wide variety of salad leaves were covered in just the right amount of light dressing and... More

We booked for Sunday lunch as we were travelling to Devon for a break. We arrived early on Saturday and as we were too early to book into our accommodation we went to the Cott for a sandwich. Big mistake! Expensive and not very good. My rare beef was not rare and was very tough. My partners crab sandwich had... More
