Situated within a restored 19th century pub, The Vane provides a stunning location to dine in, boasting a spacious beer garden too. Located in Longnewton a four mile drive from Stockton on Tees and six miles from Darlington, a trip to The Vane is the perfect way to spend a day in the countryside.

On the menu you’ll find British classics, as well as some internationally inspired dishes, all cooked using fresh local ingredients where possible. We recommend starting off with the butter poached langoustine with chorizo and white bean veloute or the confit duck and rhubarb terrine with rhubarb and blueberry chutney, duck and blueberry bon bons and wholemeal toast. Then, move on to the chicken supreme, home-smoked salmon or caramelised leek, onion and camembert pie – there’s something to suit all tastes and dietary requirements on the menu at this Longnewton favourite.

We had a really nice meal here, the bread to start was lovely and hot and mains were delicious. We were seen to promptly and had a great time.
As usual, great atmosphere, food and service. We were seen to quickly and loved the complementary bread to start-warm and tasty. Lovely restaurant set in a lovely village. We will definitely be coming back over Christmas!
I took a friend here for lunch who'd never been before and he really enjoyed it. Always a delicious eating experience at The Vane and it has a lovely atmosphere too
