Built in the 17th-century, The Old Farmhouse near Darlington is a traditional country pub, serving well-loved British food in a beautiful setting. Close to a number of tranquil waterways, the pub has eye-catching, ivy-enclosed walls, which can be enjoyed along with the food from the beer garden. Interiorly, rustic features characterise The Old Farmhouse, with luxurious sofas, a warm log-fire and dark oaken beams.

Hearty Sunday roasts and trusty British dishes head The Old Farmhouse menu, and a range just for kids offers mini versions of pub favourites. Signature Vintage pies offer fillings like beef & merlot with buttered peas, while The Old Farmhouse ‘Vintage classics’ menu includes lemon & garlic-roasted chicken with seasoned chips.

Paying homage to the Great British pub, the Vintage Inn bar stock includes cask-conditioned beers, real ales and a meticulously compiled wine list. Thirst-quenching offerings include seasonal non-alcoholic cocktails and freshly-pressed juices, and rich coffee is brewed freshly throughout the day.

The Old Farmhouse is just 6 minutes’ drive to Darlington.

    Had lunch regrets yesterday. It was very busy and service was very slow but the staff were pleasant and apologetic. For my main course I had the small fried souther chicken - the taste was excellent but I would have had more meat on a budgerigar - definitely not value for money.

    Out of the 8 main courses ordered only 7 arrived with an apology for a delay on the 8th meal which they said would be coming soon.
    By the time that it arrived most of us had finished our meal.The same delay happened with one of the deserts and they forgot to bring coffee and had to be reminded.
    The main meal plates were very hot to touch but some meals were only warm.
    Very disappointed with the service and the food although nice should have come much hotter.We visit here 3 to 4 times a year and this was the worst that it has been.
