Beamish Mary Inn
Ranked #3 of 6 Stanley B&B and Inns
Reviewed 11 June 2017

Exceptionally rustic old village pub steeped in history and with amazing interior décor.
Check in was by the friendly barman, he answered all our questions regarding travel into Chester Le Street for the night's concert.
Superb selection of real ales, mostly local, and very reasonably priced. My Guinness was excellent, always a sign that the landlord knows how to keep his beers.
We ate in the inn at night and were floored by the massive portions of delicious hand prepared food. I would highly recommend the pie of the day.
As we were late back from the concert, the owner Simon stayed up to let us back into the building. We enjoyed a pleasant conversation regarding the history of the building before retiring for an excellent night's sleep.
Breakfast in the morning was in proportion to, and to the same standard as the previous night's dinner. We both checked out well stuffed.
Don't expect modernity, but the inn has real character with friendly staff and locals, plus excellent food and real ales.

Room Tip: The village road outside has little traffic, so front facing rooms are quiet with pleasant views of...

What a wonderful experience, and such lovely and friendly staff. Craig even took my suitcase up to our room for me. My first review ever on Trip Advisor, but in this case I had to do it. Well done Beamish Mary Inn.

Stayed three nights with our whippet and could not have been more comfortable and well-received. Really good food and beer. Great place to stay for visiting Beamish Museum, which was just down the road. Bus stops outside of the inn. Durham was an easy visit too with just one bus change. Lovely local people with some good interesting knowledge of the area. Rooms and beds very comfortable.

We arrived at about 8pm on a Sunday night, after we'd been contacted by landlord Simon, to see if we wanted the kitchen left open for us, which was a really lovely touch.
The Beamish Mary Inn is a typical village pub, full of very friendly locals and with a welcoming atmosphere. We checked in were given a choice of rooms. We opted for room 2, which was fab. A very comfy bed and all the facilities you could need. We went back down to the bar and had a couple of drinks,before going up to bed.
We had a great night's sleep and got up the next morning to a full English breakfast, with option of cereals and juice, too. All very tasty!
We will definitely be back! Normally, we would have opted for a cheap, soulless, chain hotel, but if you're looking for a more friendly and welcoming service, then this is the place to come!
