Stanhope

Horn Hall Farm Tea Rooms, Stanhope DL13 2JR. 01388 527931 or 07906 988262. E: janemattari@hotmail.co.uk. Splendid addition last year to Stanhope. Groups can order evening meals here so long as you call in advance. Great home baking, pies, hot and cold sandwiches, salads and quiches in a lovely stone building on the edge of town. There’s plenty of parking space and a bike rack, plus outdoor eating area. There’s a huge outdoor area plus seating inside for 30+. Sunday roast lunch is generous and ideal if you’re starving after a long ride (£8.50).
