The Travellers Rest at Witton Gilbert, a village a few miles outside Durham, is not the prettiest pub to look at, but the interior does make up for it. Enter from the car park at the rear and your into an extremely comfortable and inviting bar and restaurant area.
The 4 steps at the back were a bit difficult for me by the way.

The real ale selection of permanent Black Sheep Bitter with 2 changing guest ales, which were St Austell Tribute and Caledonian Auld Acquaintance on this occasion, was superb. Particularly the dark and delicious Auld Acquaintance.

A good real ale pub and well worth a visit.
