WHAT WE LOVE...

In the quiet, well-heeled village of Sedgefield, north of Darlington, with a village green and racecourse, this pleasant looking pub is a real surprise. Inside it reveals not only a very large and sassy bar and dining area but, in the courtyard behind, a collection of enormous, wildly over-the-top bedrooms that ooze seduction: velvet fabrics, ornate headboards, rich colours, copper baths and private hot tubs. Clearly, this is a place for romance, celebrations, date-nights and proposals - or just a fun night away. The restaurant serves up punchy bistro-style dishes while the bar has a handsome selection of wines - plenty of Champagnes - and local beers. There's a sun-trap patio, too, and a bit of a pig theme…

Style & Character

The Impeccable Pig is ideal for couples wanting to celebrate, have a romantic night away, park the children with the grandparents and have a night off - and who prefer fun to pretty flowers. The witty and whimsical decorative touches - portraits of pigs as snazzy gentlemen, vintage advertising posters, fake street lamps - are fun to spot.

Service & Facilities

Tuck yourself away with a cup of tea around the fire, or sit up at the bar and be entertained by the bar-tenders while doing a spot of people-watching.

Rooms

Each room has its individual high points, whether a mirrored ceiling, gold slipper bath or leopard-print carpet, but we love the beamed Pigs Might Fly room with its cloud wallpaper, midnight-blue colours, seven-foot bed and nickel-plated circular bath. The space in each room is huge, and just cries out for you to drift around in a bathrobe, cocktail in hand.

Food & Drink

Sunday lunch - wittily called Sunday Pig-Out - has a good range (including fish and vegetarian) with all the trimmings, is good value, and runs until early evening. The wine list is exceptional for a pub - around 12 Champagnes - and has a good spread of both popular and interesting, at decent prices.

The restaurant: modern European and British dishes, Sunday roasts, pizzas, steaks, vegan options, kids' menu. Open for dinner Mon-Thurs, and for lunch and dinner on Friday, Saturday and Sunday. Mains from £14.
The bar: wide range of local beers, fines wines and spirits. Open Mon-Thurs 3-10pm, Friday, Saturday and Sunday noon-late.
