Following a recent change of management and a recent refurbishment, the Blacksmiths Pub & Kitchen in North Cowton has transformed into one sought after dining destination in the area. A pretty village located just a few miles from Darlington, North Cowton is proud to play host to a pub like the Blacksmiths. Locals love the place, especially with its new and exciting menu.
Changing with the seasons the menu has plenty to offer, from light bites and salads to hearty hot dinners whilst the focus is on fresh, homemade recipes. Tuck into a delicious black pudding stack with bubble and squeak rosti, onions and a grain mustard sauce, fabulous pressed English belly pork with apple and sage mash, apple fritter and a creamy cider sauce or a perfectly cooked roasted salmon fillet with hollandaise sauce, creamed leeks and peas and new potatoes. Sharers will love the Pub Grub Platter filled with spicy chicken wings, onion rings, spiced wedges, crispy BBQ chicken wings and a variety of dips.
Interior designer Gill Wilkinson has created a stylish gastro pub without putting off the traditionalists at the same time. The bar area is at the front while dining is enjoyed to the rear and in the lovely large conservatory. Serving a variety of real local ales, some great wines and a range of spirits, the bar is the place to head for a pre or post dinner tipple.
A brilliant choice for a meal in the countryside surrounding Darlington, the team at the Blacksmiths Pub & Kitchen have come up with a winning formula with both food and style.
