WELCOME TO The Tawny Owl IN Darlington

We’ve got everything you need from a country pub near you.

The Tawny Owl is one of the oldest buildings in Darlington, a town steeped in history. Beginning as an Anglo-Saxon settlement on the River Skerne, it was later taken over by the Danes, a fact that explains the number of place names in the area with a Viking origin. The Tawny Owl provides the ideal setting to relax, eat and drink, surrounded by history and heritage.

Our menus are full of hearty favourites and country pub classics, including our steak & mushroom pie and beer-battered fish and chips. Why not try some of our new seasonal dishes like Asparagus & ricotta ravioli or Roasted Salmon with vine tomatoes & pesto.

We look forward to welcoming you, and we’ll ready with a well-stocked bar, including cask ales, lager, fine wines, British gin and soft drinks to suit every taste — which will taste all the better when enjoyed in our beautiful and picturesque gardens.
