Reviews - The Lambton Hounds Inn

3Self Classified Inn Ratings explained
62-64 Front Street, Pity Me, , Durham, DH1 5DE
Brother and sister, James and Katy, have run this family business since 2006 and have overseen many changes and improvements to the old inn making the Lambton Hounds a perfect base to explore the riches of Durham and its surroundings. We provide the ideal location for a weekend break in the heart of the North East with many famous sights and tourist attractions on our doorstep. In addition, with a variety of great transport links very close by, we enable you with easy access to the North East's most famous tourist attractions: Durham Cathedral and Castle, Crook Hall and Gardens, Beamish Museum, National Railway Museum, Auckland and Bamburgh Castles, Diggerland, Adventure Valley and much more. We have a choice of eight rooms for visitors to choose from our traditional, cosy and comfortable coaching inn of over 250 years old. Rooms offer period characteristics and have en-suite facilities with a choice of bath or shower. Our Bed & Breakfast has a three star National Tourist Board rating and the rooms are equipped with LCD TV, Freeview, radio alarm clocks, tea making facilities and toiletries. We also offer free WIFI area. Breakfast is served everyday from 8:00 - 9:00. At the counter you will find a wide selection of cereals, yoghurts and fruit juice for you to help yourselves to. You will be served tea or coffee and toast, then a full English breakfast (or any variation). Check in time is from 4pm and check out time is 10:30am. Our friendly country style Pub comprises of 3 different sections: the lounge, snug and bar. The lounge features an open fire place and our star attraction, "the lounge bar" which is the ORIGINAL cocktail bar from the RMS Olympic, sister ship of the TITANIC. Our homemade traditional Tapas Restaurant is very different to the ones you would find elsewhere. We pride ourselves on fresh and simple ingredients to produce the type of Tapa found in little Spanish bars across different Regions of Spain. Please visit www.lambtonhounds.co.uk for more info.

Tity Me! (A misprint on key ring)
The pub is a delight for those wishing to stay in a traditional inn. Olde world charm in the cosy bar which is used by visitors and locals alike. It is not pretentious and maintains its character - a local pub in a small ex-mining village of Pity Me. The key-ring to the room however had been misprinted nd read Tity Me which the landlord assured was a genuine mistake by the Printers!.
The pub offered good value food with specials offers on different nights. Our room was clean and had a good bath with plenty of hot water.

You get what you pay for
OK so the rooms may need a little bit of updating but where else can you get a room and a decent breakfast for under 40.00 quid.
The staff I encountered were all polite and helpful, especially the young lady who served breakfast. I had two evening meals and bothe were spot on for the price, good selection of proper beer too.

The basics done perfectly
The Lambton Hounds Inn was very welcoming and the staff were friendly and approachable. It was clear that this is a family run business. The rooms, whilst basic, had everything to hand and we had a good stay.

Good stay, friendly, clean and comfortable! Very easy bus service to the city centre too. Nice pub with food available, I didn't eat at the pub so can't quite reccomend the food but judging by the rest of the stay i'm sure it's very nice!

It is an inexpensive place - what we were looking for so it was fine. Not going to win any awards but a good basic no frills place to stay. The pub is classic. A real locals place.
