About our pub

With a wide selection of both keg and cask-conditioned beers on offer, comfortable en-suite accommodation and delicious homemade Tapas in our restaurant, The Lambton Hounds can provide an excellent base to explore the historic city of Durham.

Situated in the village of Pity Me, less than 2 miles from the city of Durham, The Lambton Hounds is a 250-year-old, family run coaching inn on the Great North Road between York and Newcastle. With a congenial atmosphere and inviting fireplace, it is
a popular local with a traditional British pub atmosphere.

Relax in the cosy snug, sample one of the cask ales, or enjoy an authentic Tapas meal in our restaurant. In addition to our eight bedrooms we have a traditional bar with pool table, dartboard & jukebox and a relaxing beer garden. An interesting feature of our lounge bar is that it is the original cocktail bar of the RMS Olympic, sister ship of the Titanic.

A warm welcome awaits you from the owners of The Lambton Hounds Inn, Katy Wolsey & her brother James. We have been running the business for eight years and have overseen many changes and improvements to the old inn: re-establishing its reputation as a friendly hostelry offering a good selection of cask ales, excellent food and comfortable, relaxing accommodation.

The Lambton Hounds is conveniently placed with excellent park and ride facilities close by for easy access to the North East's most famous sights and tourist attractions including: The Durham Cathedral heritage site, historic Durham City, the Baltic Art gallery & Milennium Bridge, Beamish museum, The Metro Centre and Newcastle City centre. We also have ample parking on site for your convenience, in our large car park situated at the rear of the pub.

The Lambton Hounds Inn provides the ideal location for a relaxing drink, superb value for money home cooking or a weekend break in the heart of the North East.
