The Old Mill has a welcoming atmosphere set in a countryside setting. We are open for food and drink all day from Lunch time through to close making us the ideal choice for a quick snack and a drink over lunch or for the formal entertaining of business clients. We have spent the last few months developing and refining our extensive chalkboard menu and we are proud to say we now consider The Old Mill to be at the forefront for food in Pubs.

Following comprehensive refurbishment The Old Mill is now a typical English Inn with a warm and welcoming atmosphere, tasteful and stylish furnishings set in an ideal situation only a mile from Junction 61 of the A1M , and 5 miles from the historic City of Durham.

Stayed here for two nights to visit the Lumiere festival in Durham. Superbly clean, well-equipped rooms which were excellent value for money. Food was well priced and very good. Busy restaurant/bar with friendly, efficient staff. Nothing too much trouble and guests were well looked after. Some intrusion from road noise but nothing too drastic. Will definitely stay here again. Ideally place dfor Durham and only 25 mins to Newcastle as well.


I stayed at the Old Mill for one night at the end of October 2013. It would be hard to beat for the price the quality of the room and the friendliness of the service. My room and the bathroom were both spacious. The bed was large and comfortable. I also ate dinner at the hotel and the it was excellent. Cannot fault the place.


Great place rooms fantastic and food excellent we will definitely be back and great place to go with friends and family. What we saw family more than welcome and a lovely atmosphere! Staff were really friendly and nothing was too much trouble!
