We used Beamish Park quite a bit during lockdown when you could only eat & socialise in the open but hadn’t been for a few months. The ‘outside’ area has all been glassed in now and we (2 couples) sat outside. It was cozy in front of the fire - definitely warm enough. Although it wasn’t busy, which I have to say in these times I quite like (less chance of infection), we all had a great afternoon. They had a reduced menu yesterday, however we all found options we liked - we’d forgotten how good the food is. The service as usual was excellent, with the regular guy serving who’s very friendly and efficient. We felt a little guilty that we haven’t been back recently but will visit again very soon.

I really appreciated Beamish Park Hotel taking such diligence of safety for our visit. Also that they were serving beautiful lunches on a Bank Holiday.
Thank you so much.
My favourite hotel for treats

Lovely food but limited menu, possibly due to time of year, which was disappointing and not advertised on the website. Restaurant empty which suited us due to current covid spread and felt safe (sanitiser available, staff all wearing face masks etc). Would definitely return but would ring first to check they have the full menu available.

Lovely piping hot food , generous portions and reasonably priced. Would definitely
Book again.
Only downside was maybe the music which was a bit loud.
, but it didn’t spoil the visit.

Fabulous food, only disappointment was that I been dying to try the Christmas turkey sandwich.
Unfortunately the new menu omitted to say that the sandwiches were only available till 5pm.
If only we’d know we could have booked the table for earlier.

Food took 45 mins to be served from ordering. Too long for sandwiches and pizza. One wrong order was received as we were told the hot roast sandwich of the day was beef but Turkey arrived, the minute steak sandwich was served in bread rather than ciabatta as has previously been served for years. Pizza was tasty but base was slightly undercooked. Duck wraps were very cold and would have been improved by being warmed through. Having dined numerous times at the beamish park and always been happy we were left very disappointed and won't be rushing back.

Food was ok although how a quarter of an onion is considered as a vegetable
on a Sunday roast escapes me. Party of 4, food arrived in dribs and drabs, 2 plates then a veg dish, followed by cauliflower cheese and then the other two plates and second veg dish.
No one came to the table to ask if everything was ok.
Plates were taken away and we waited, and waited... , it wasn't busy at all. No dessert menu was offered so we asked for the bill and left.
There is a door in the restaurant that leads outside to an external seating area. That may have been fine in the summer but the draft when it was continually oped was intolerable.
Have used this place on many occasions but it has gone backwards considerably in recent months.

Food was lovely. We ate dinner the night before too and was spot on. The rare beef salad starter was that good we had it Saturday and Sunday.
Staff were lovely.

My partner and I dine out frequently and from entering Hotel it had a wonderful feeling. Surroundings, decor lovely . Greeting really friendly the young lady really nice. Got better FOOD !! Starters excellent Korean Beef Noodles different tastes were lovely, Pate came with four slices of cut bread with most amazing pickle onions (pink in flavour but won't give away chefs recipe even though he shared). Mains were tremendous but that full staff gladly boxed up chicken kebabs with flatbread which were delicious for my breakfast. Finished off in bar on sofa finishing drink discussing what a lovely dining experience it had been.

Excellent food, my husband said it was the best steak he had ever eaten. Lots of choice on the menu, including some different dishes not seen on normal pub/hotel menus. Great service, and a lovely quiet table in the conservatory area.

Food was disappointing and very basic. Children’s food was cheap quality and katsu curry very bland. Nachos came in cardboard box on a plate which seemed weird for a restaurant.
The waiting staff never asked if food was ok despite taking away a full plate of uneaten food.
