Bristol Arms

Overlooking the River Stour, the Bristol Arms is set on the tip of the Shotley Peninsula and is a wondeful place to watch the gorgeous sunsets, see the continental ferries and cruise ships slip harbour or just gaze at the serene scenery.

The Bristol Arms offers fresh-cooked food, lunch and evenings, great beers, wines and guest ales in a typical English pub atmosphere.

Great for an intimate chat, or a lively night out when live music or open mic night is on.

Ideally placed for lunch before or after a walk along the front where you may visit the Shotley Heritage Park or wander along to see the HMS Ganges museum and Shotley Marina.
