Please note that the Stables Bar is currently closed until further notice
Open on a Friday, Saturday and Sunday, and packed with charm and character, our comfortable bar is located in the manor's former stables overlooking the gardens and pays homage to the equestrian heritage of West Auckland, both in competition and industry.
The West Auckland Joint Stock Brewery Co was founded in 1840, later being brought under the famous Camerons of West Hartlepool banner, but some of its memorabilia survives today amid the paraphernalia of a modern bar. We also remember the horse training and racing that has existed in the local area for generations with framed silks and paintings.
Original beams and stone walls are complemented by a host of interesting knick-knacks and pieces of social history to keep our guests entertained over a refreshing pint or a glass of wine.
