The Crathorne Arms
The Crathorne Arms is a great pub in a wonderful community spirited village, lovely people, Lord Crathorne himself couldn’t be more supportive, how lucky we are.
Our life has come a full circle from a town pub in Middlesbrough (well Eugene has) to the tontine (McCoys Hotel, Restaurant and Bistro) to a village pub in Crathorne, Ten Minutes from Middlesbrough.
We live above the pub, our furniture and furnishings live downstairs as they can’t and won’t fit up the stairs! So the canoe has the condiments, the bookcases our books, the huge sofa with big squashy cushions to sink into, tin lanterns reflecting patterns on the ceiling, this all makes for a homely feel and that’s what we would like to create along with good wholesome food and drink.
The log fires, the characters in the bar; our farmers, cyclists, dogs, WI ladies, Anna all help to make a warm friendly atmosphere as you walk in.
Wear what you want, dress up, dress down. There’s a separate drinking area at one end of the Building and a dining area with wooden tables at the other end. We also have a small section that can be a private eating area that can seat up to 14/16 in the dining area.
In addition there is a function room that doubles up as a private special occasion room or as a Music Room, who mentioned Kirk Reunions, Yes, We do good Old Days.
The courtyard at the back is a suntrap when the suns out with tables and umbrellas for the Al Fresco Dining.
Of Course the staff, front of house and kitchen are all great, hardworking, smiley, enthusiastic young people and a joy to work with.
We thank all the very many who have already been and supported us through our first four years. Heres to many more……….
