The Hammer & Pincers Inn
A warm welcome awaits
The Hammer and Pincers formerly known as The Blacksmiths Arms, has been owned and run by husband and wife, Peter and Rachel and Rachel’s brother Neil (Head Chef) since February 2016.
The country pub is traditional in style whilst slowly being updated with a slightly more modern and contemporary look.
Well known for good food and real Ales, our menu’s of home cooked food are changed frequently with reference when possible to seasonal availability and local produce.
The pub is situated in rolling countryside while still being convenient for many nearby villages and the larger towns of Darlington, Newton Aycliffe, Bishop Auckland and Durham.
The pub is also a wedding venue with a difference! Our Tipi’s or marquee are available for hire either in our own spacious garden or field or off site within a 30 mile radius. We can provide full catering and bar services for the wedding receptions held at our pub. We can provide anything from a Hog roast or BBQ to a formal sit down meal or an informal Afternoon tea, bespoke cocktails and real ales. Suitable for 30 to 200 people.
Recently improvements have been made to our smaller bar room ‘The Anvil room’ which has been newly decorated and now has a limestone floor. This room is perfect for weddings, anniversaries, birthdays, christening parties and baby showers. With no hire charge this room can be reserved for the sole use of groups sized between 20 and 30.
