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.

Two nights in the frozen north
We arrived in Pity Me in the early evening and it was really cold outside. Inside was completely different, the room was warm and cosy and it stayed that way for the rest of our two night stay.
The breakfast was tasty with all the usual ingrediants and the service was speedy and friendly.

Lambton Hounds Inn
I arrived about 8.30 p.m. on a very cold night. Room was quite outdated but overall adequate. No instructions for appliances. Room very cold as radiator was old and not too warm. Bath water not hot enough - I needed to supplement it with boiled kettle water. Breakfast was very good - basic choice of cereals then a full English breakfast, followed by toast, etc.

Cosy close to Durham
A characterful little Inn. The room was cosy, comfortable and had everything we needed. The landlord was very accommodating, as I shared a room with my two grown up children and a grandson.
