About The Vane at Long Newton

Trading for 200 years with a garden enjoying views over the beautiful North Yorkshire Moors near Stockton on Tees, close enough to cycle out to. We serve seasonal food, sourced locally wherever possible and, in some cases, grown by us right here in our garden. With friendly service, exceptional food, a cosy bar serving well kept beer and our comfortable  en-suite rooms, a warm welcome awaits you at The Vane.



Food worth driving (or cycling!) out for…

Only 4 miles from Stockton and 6 miles from Darlington, it’s the perfect opportunity to get away and relax at a genuinely friendly country pub while enjoying exceptional food.

Whether it’s the main menu, with pub classics and evening special dishes or the market menu, with its changing choices at lunch or in the early evening, there’s a common theme –fresh ingredients, exquisitely cooked and delightfully presented to give an amazing tasting experience. Then there is the Sunday lunch menu, with traditional mouth-watering roasts and trimmings and a Children’s menu. All this can be accompanied by a bottle of wine or a pint of hand-pulled cask beer.

The Vane is a dog-friendly pub. Well-behaved dogs are welcome in the garden and in the bar section of the pub so its a good place to stop off for refreshment after a walk in the nearby woods and countryside, such as Coatham Stobb,

It’s ideal for leisure or business alike – seating up to 40 for a function.



Cask conditioned beer……

The Vane keeps an ever changing array of guest ales from across the country as well as our regular ‘Black Sheep Ale’, brewed in nearby Masham. These are served in a traditional bar – with a warming fire in the winter months. In the summer, you can sit out in our large grassy beer garden, which has sweeping, uninterrupted views across the fields to the North Yorks moors.



Andy-and-Emily After trying a few different careers Andy became a chef in April 2013 and has quickly worked his way up from busy high street restaurants to Rosette accredited establishments. Emily, like Andy, tried a couple of different things, all customer service based jobs and found how much she enjoyed working in hospitality and food. They met working in a busy restaurant in Yarm, Emily was front of house and Andy was the chef (slightly cliche). They got along through their mutual love of pubs and good food. Emily and Andy have both since built on experience in their own specific roles and felt it was the right time to use this experience for their own venture. That’s how they’ve come to run the Vane together. Andy loves to give traditional food a contemporary twist and is often experimenting with new things in the kitchen and using Emily as the guinea pig.
