The Vane Arms is situated in the country village of Long Newton just off the A66 midway between Darlington and Stockton. It dates back to the early 19th century, when it was known as the New Inn and was owned by numerous pub companies before sadly going the way of many country pubs these days - closed down and abandoned. However, after two and a half years closure, the Vane reopened in 2009 under the ownership of villagers Jill and Paul Jackson who have strived incrementally to create the type of pub that is hard to find these days. A pub that concentrates on providing good beer, good food and comfortable accommodation.

    There is no jukebox or pool table, no children’s menu, no micro-waved pre-packed meals delivered in chiller vans.
The TV in the Bar (there is no Sky) is only on for limited events, background music plays quietly in the Lounge, the Bar is for over 18s only where dominoes and cards are played in front of an open fire. However young adults under 18 are welcome in the Lounge under supervision until 9.00 pm.

    The pub restaurant offers a selection of freshly prepared
A La Carte fine dining meals, together with more traditional pub meals under the direction of Head Chef Ben Icke both lunch times and evenings at very reasonable prices.
It sells an ‘ever changing’ selection of real ales together with other beers and lagers from its prize winning cellar and is able to offer a varied wine list. There is a large Beer Garden with exceptional panoramic views stretching for miles over
to Roseberry Topping, the Cleveland Hills and the North Yorkshire Moors. As of March 2013, accommodation is now available in four en-suite bedrooms on the first floor.

    Why not pop into an old traditional pub for a quiet drink
an individually and passionately prepared meal, say hello to
Jill and Paul and be sure of a warm welcome!

See you soon. Jill and Paul!
