Smokehouse, Bishop Auckland


The ‘Smokehouse’ is one of the newest businesses to open in Bishop Auckland, and for those people who have had the opportunity to try their menu, they can’t fail to not be disappointed.

The Smokehouse has an air of mystery to it, hidden down the side street of Railway Street, and is more or less opposite the Hippodrome Bingo Hall, but on their growing reputation, it will be the Smokehouse on where people describe where Railway Street is in the future.

With a rustic feel to the venue, with upcycled school tables and stools to sit and eat it simply adds to its charm.

Located in one corner is an upcycled bar with hand pulled local produced beer from a beer and food festival that they had last month, and are keen to replicate something similar again in the future.

But wait until I tell you about the food?

Beautiful is the only word I’d describe it.

For the town of Bishop Auckland it offers something different, and talking to their owners, the Smokehouse is only the start of their ambitious plans.


The menu consists currently of varying tasty treats such as;

Pulled Pork with the most delightful twice cooked chips, apple sauce, homemade coleslaw and the spicy kicked accompaniment of barbecue sauce, and a drink coming in at great value of £5.00 as a meal deal.


Alongside this the brisket is extremely tasty, equally are the chicken wings, chicken legs or a spicy sausage, with new additions constantly being introduced and added to their menu.

Including the outstanding belly busting of a meal with the giant smoked beef ribs as below.

Smokehouse is fast becoming a popular place to visit, and from not only the photos and videos but the glowing reviews, you can really start to see why.

Open from around 11.30am each day why not give it a try for your lunch when your next in town, you’ll not be disappointed.
