A distinctively ancient building, The Tawny Owl near Darlington offers fantastic country views while enjoying the traditional British pub cuisine. Featuring a pretty al fresco dining area and a cosy hearth for winter, the country pub has classic brickwork and eye-catching red slate on the outside. With Chesterfield armchairs, charming candles and traditional ornaments, The Tawny Owl has an abundance of rustic character.

Hearty Sunday roasts and trusty British dishes head The Tawny Owl 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 Tawny Owl ‘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.

In the tranquil countryside, and just north of the River Tees, The Tawny Owl is just 10 minutes’ drive from Darlington.
