Sunday Lunch and a Play in the Snow at Beamish Hall

15 Dec

I must be getting soft in my old age, but with the chilly icy weather I didn’t quite fancy taking the usual picnic on our trip to Beamish Museum at the weekend and so took the executive decision to book a table for a hearty Sunday Lunch.

I had heard good things about Beamish Hall and booked us a table for 6 at The Stables that promised a winning combination of log fires and real ales. But I wasn’t expecting to be quite so, well, lovely.


Driving up through the snowy grounds the Hall itself looked picture perfect and The Stables a warming winter wonderland.

The Stables is a bar, restaurant and micro-brewery is at the back of Best Western Beamish Hall, in the converted 18th century stable block.

It was a bit too frosty for the outdoor courtyard… but I bet that it is fantastic on a milder day or evening.


The inside was really welcoming, had a great atmosphere and lots of space – which is always a relief to me, as I still get slightly anxious about expecting my two young’uns to sit still for any prolonged period of time.

There was some tasty ales on tap. Continuing the Beamish theme I sampled Old Miner Tommy.

We didn’t try a starter – going straight for the Sunday Roast and its giant Yorkshires. We all really enjoyed the meal – with particular praise being heaped on the tasty spread of veg.


The menu was wide-ranging, with a good selection of kids options too.

The beautiful grounds meant we could also work off our meal with a snowball fight in the snow…


Definitely a place I would like to return.
