Staying up that neck of the woods.... I have heard that the landlord of the gate at North Wingfield is moving.
The rumour is he is taking over the Dunston {I thought that had closed!!} and the gate is to cease being a public house and become some sort of b&b/ lodging house.

Also I forgot to mention the Crown inn at Higham has closed indefinitely. No one seems to know why, it was a case of all of a sudden there he was.... gone! 
It's a great shame, you could always be sure of good grub and a decent pint there. It's been a bit hit and miss for a while apparently, we booked middle of last year and when we got there pinned to the back door was a hastily scribbled note saying sorry no food kitchen closed, so we went to the Greyhound and had a decent meal and we are going back this week but would have preferred the Crown.

The Dunston is part pub and part shop as is the Cricketers.From what I have seen neither of them does very much.

I haven't been in the Crown for a good few years but I remember it was on The hotel inspector a few years ago.
We went with friends to the greyhound just before Christmas but were not impressed either by the new menu or the food served so haven't been back.

Enjoyed the Barley Mow in Wingerworth though oh and the Sizzling steak in the Donkey Derby
