The Rose & Crown - Romaldkirk.
About a 50min drive from Maulds Meaburn.
A little distance from Maulds Meaburn but worth the drive especially if the A66 is avoided and you drive the "back way" through Brough. The food here is really excellent, and inside this traditional pub is well decorated and has a friendly atmosphere. Beers include Theakstons, Black Sheep, Guinness and John Smiths. A real coal fire in the bar area.
The village itself is beautiful and a good centre for some excellent walks. If you find the Rose & Crown too busy nip down the road to Cotherstone and visit the Fox & Hounds - another little gem!
