At the High Force Hotel an integral part of our ethos celebrates local producers. From breakfast to dinner, our seasonal menus include locally sourced produce from free range hen and duck eggs from High Beverly Farm, just a few miles away, to Raby Venison and Longhorn Beef – a highlight of our lunch and dinner menus, supporting local communities and keeping air miles to a minimum. The coffee served at breakfast and throughout the hotel is Lonton Coffee, a local artisan coffee roaster that uses only the finest and ethically sourced coffee beans and is based right here in the heart of Teesdale.

Choose your setting

You can choose to eat in one of our two cosy little bars, in the tearoom or outdoors on the patio, in the courtyard or in the garden. Or relax in our beautiful Garden Room which offers a cosy, fine dining experience and can be transformed into a private event space.

Our ground floor public areas are warm and welcoming, with open fires and log burning stoves. There is nowhere better to sit on a cold winter’s day to read the paper over a Gin and Tonic or glass of wine.

Breakfast is served in our lower bar, offering dual aspect windows to let the morning sunshine stream through.
