When it comes to landmarks, what could be more enticing than a landmark that’s also one of the premier pub and restaurants in the North East? Shiremoor House Farm is all that and much, much more. A huge, tastefully converted farm building with exposed stone walls and beams, a glazed granary, a covered terrace, and a beer garden, it’s won more than just architectural awards. In fact, it’s been noted in CAMRA guides, the Egon Ronay guide, and many more for its welcoming and relaxed attitude, the consistently high standards of its menu, and its reputation for quality wine and perfectly conditioned cask ales. Because its prices are exceptionally reasonable, it’s the perfect place to stop off whether you’re in having a business meeting, visiting the coast or the nearby George Stephenson Museum, or even doing a bit of shopping or catching a film at Silverlink.
