The Bridge Inn, is a semi-detached, traditionally stone built two storey building, which overlooks the village green. The affluent village of Whorlton is located approx three miles east of Barnard Castle and between the busy A66 and A67. Previously established and with a good reputation for both quality food and drink, The Bridge Inn has a great deal to offer a new operator, under the new interior space, which enables the offering of food and accommodation, without the additional costs of a 60 seater restaurant.
Ground Floor Entrance from the front leads to the attractive, wooden floored lounge/restaurant (30) with both loose and fixed seating, stone built open fire and painted roof beams. To the left is the central stone built bar which serves the lounge. The ground floor accommodates the catering kitchen, preparation and washing areas, servery from the kitchen to the bar, along with the ladies and gents toilets and access to the cellar. There is also both access to the rear patio and extensive car parking.

There is a driveway to the front and side of the property which leads to the car park to the rear. With access via the car park and the rear entrance, the attractive patio area to the rear offers outdoor seating.
The previous tenant, established a reputation for both good beer and quality food, catering for both local villagers and customers from across the region. The bar offered a selection of traditional beers, along with a good selection of wines. The previous tenant catered for a variety of events during the year, including christenings, funerals and other celebratory events.
