Welcome to The Ship Inn – Middleton

Welcome to The Ship Inn at Middlestone Situated in the historic village near Bishop Auckland Co Durham.

May we take this opportunity to welcome you to The Ship, our home and our idea of a traditional English country pub. We provide quality food, using local produce where possible, a wide variety of real ales, wine,whisky and a convivial atmosphere.

Customers are the most important visitor on our premises.

They are not dependant on us, we are dependent on them.

They are not an interruption to our work, they are the purpose of it.

They are not an outsider to our business; they are a part of it.

We are not doing them a favour by serving them, they are doing us a favour by giving us an opportunity to do so.

Real Ales & Quality Food

You will not be disappointed with our food!

Our meals include a vegetarian option, and the best roast beef dinner in town!

The pub is the heart of the people’s England where a variety of folks, for generations have found their respite from work, a meeting place and a home-away-from-home.

“When you have lost your inns drown your empty selves for you will have lost the last of England “ – Hilaire Belloc
