The Golden Lion in St John's Chapel is located next to the farmers mart at the end of the market square. The Golden Lion prides itself on serving local food with meats from local dales farms. Visit county Durham recently awarded them the 2015 quality assured accredited status. It's a lovely homely pub with a great selection of beers and is very popular with the people from the upper dale. Recently some properties that adjoin the pub have been renovated into comfortable letting accommodation.
Whether your looking for a drink in traditional surroundings or either lunch or dinner why not call in at The Golden Lion where you will always find a warm welcome. One of the best locations this region has to offer set in beautiful Upper Weardale high in the North Pennines.
