How To Find Us
From the South:
Some Satnav systems will direct you to use a minor road involving a sharp left turn from the A1(M) between the Stannington Village and Morpeth exits. This left turn is not the best route to St Mary’s Inn from the A1(M). Instead, we suggest that you use the Morpeth/Clifton exit which is the next exit to the north after about one mile. At the end of the slip road from the A1(M), take the left turn signposted St Mary’s Inn/White House Farm which will take you through the hamlet of Glororum to a T-junction where there is a further signpost. Take the left turn again and descend the hill for about one mile to the entrance to St Mary’s Park which is a sharp junction to the right. Take this right turn and the road ahead will fork. You should take the left fork – St Mary’s Inn is about 400 yards ahead of you on the right
From the North: Come off the A1 at the Stannington/Netherton Park exit where you will approach a double roundabout. At the first roundabout take the third exit which is signposted for Stannington. At the second roundabout go straight over, again signposted for Stannington. You will then come into Stannington village and will very quickly come to a mini-roundabout. Take the right fork at this roundabout which is signposted for St Mary’s Hospital. On the right-hand side of the road, you will see a brown tourist board sign for St Mary’s Inn. Turn right at this sign and follow this road (Church Road) for about 2 3/4 miles. On your right-hand side you will pass the post office and Stannington First School and on your left you will see St Mary’s Church. After the church, the road will then become a country road for about two miles when the road will bend to your right but on your left, you will then come to the entrance for the new development St Mary’s Park. Drive into the development and the road ahead will fork. Take the left fork and St Mary’s Inn is about 400 yards ahead on the right.A BIT OF BACKGROUND… OUR SISTER PROPERTY: JESMOND DENE HOUSE
TEMPORARY CLOSURE OF ST MARY’S INN, 22/03/2020
Dear Family and Friends of St. Mary’s Inn,
We are absolutely committed to the well-being, health and safety of our guests and staff.
The COVID-19 virus is rapidly spreading throughout the world and each Government is following their own strategy to minimise the impact on their people.
The UK Government have advised most recently that people should avoid pubs, theatres, clubs, and by implication, restaurants, though businesses are left to make their own operational choices based on their unique circumstances.
This is a rapidly changing situation and in order to ensure we put our guests and staff at the front of our considerations we have made the decision to temporarily close the Inn effective from 19:00hrs, Sunday, 22nd March 2020.
We will keep everyone advised as the situation changes and look forward to welcoming you all back at the earliest possible time and in accordance with future Government and WHO advice.
We wish the people of the village of Stannington, our guests who travel so far to see us, and our loyal staff and your families well through this difficult time.
The St. Mary’s Inn team
