Great Pub Inn close to some places of interest
This was our second stay at the Royal Oak. Although not in Durham itself. Durham is close by and the North Pennine AONB and Hadrian's Wall areas are within 25 miles with the drive over Weardale being particularly scenic. The staff are always welcoming and we have a great stay whenver we have been. The food is excellent although I would just mention they do not serve food on Sunday evenings. The nearest place on a Sunday night is 4 miles away. Loads of local, atmosphere in traditional pub.
