Manor House Inn, Carterway Heads, Northumbria, DH8 9LX – The Good Pub Guide

Good Pub Guide Recommended

Handy after a walk, with a traditional bar, comfortable lounge, bar food and five real ales; bedrooms
If you've been walking around the nearby Derwent Valley and Reservoir, head to this genuinely friendly and simple slate-roofed stone house for a rest. Homely and old-fashioned, the locals' bar has an original boarded ceiling, pine tables, chairs and stools, old oak pews and a mahogany counter. The carpeted lounge bar (warmed by a woodburning stove) and restaurant are comfortably pubby with wheelback chairs, stripped-stone walls and picture windows that make the most of the lovely setting. There's Copper Dragon Golden Pippin, Greene King Old Speckled Hen and Thwaites Wainwright on handpump alongside ten wines by the glass, 20 malt whiskies and Weston's Old Rosie cider; darts, board games and background music. There are stunning views over the reservoir and beyond from picnic-sets on the terrace.

Good Pub Guide Food

Using local suppliers and seasonal game, some kind of food is served all day: sandwiches, tempura prawns with sweet chilli dip, a changing pâté with red onion marmalade, omelettes, cajun-spiced salmon supreme with red wine glaze, cumberland sausages with rich onion gravy, beer-battered cod and chips, chicken stuffed with chorizo mousse and spring onion mash, daily specials, and puddings.

Bar food times: 12 - 9 (8 summer Sun, 7 winter Sun)

Much more interesting food than is described in this report. Excellent and creative specials, including usually some game dishes. Always good selection of well kept ales and ciders, some fine wines.
