Good Pub Guide 2017 Pub & Bar Award


The pub is little changed, in 200 years with wood burning stoves in all the rooms, bare wooden tables and exposed stone work. We combine an informal and relaxed style of dining with a kitchen team using ingredients foraged and farmed in the surrounding area to create a unique experience. Rhian and Helen celebrate ten years at the pub this year and the winning formula that has seen them win 36 awards during this time.

We’re almost the most southerly point in Northumberland and you can see four counties from the pub; Cumbria and the lakes are to the west,  Gateshead and then the metropolis that is Newcastle to the East (with the coast visible in the distance). County Durham is just south from here, only 18 miles to Durham city. Take a look at our map to see where we are, not far from anywhere! The Cheviot is 60 miles due north!

Rhian and his team create a daily changing menu maximising the local produce with in house butchery, charcuterie, preserving, smoking and butter churning. Fermenting  beer to create vinegar and seeds to create rye and sour dough white breads. Working with local farmers and taking whole beasts straight from the abattoir allows them to use the lesser known cuts, many glorious dishes using offal, everything is skilfully crafted into delicious and satisfying feasts.

 Game comes straight from the shoot, with the skinning and plucking carried out by our team. Traditional and long forgotten recipes are recreated and skills are taught to a new generation of chefs.

With a seasonally changing wine list all selected to pair with the food offerings as well as an extensive whisky range, perfectly kept cask ales, the drinker is as welcome as the diner. We have spent the last ten years working tirelessly to create the ideal county pub.

Access information

There are a couple of steps up into the pub from the front entrance. Access after these is easier to the left hand bar. Toilets are up a couple more steps from this bar. Access to the toilets from the rear entrance (and car park) is on the flat and from here access to a third dining room is down one step. Customers can park in either the front or rear car park, both only yards from the door. Also customers with limited mobility can also park immediately outside the front door of the pub whilst not blocking the entrance.

Road directions

Hedley on the Hill is near Stocksfield, which is just west Prudhoe on the A695, about a 25-minute drive west of Newcastle or 15 miles east of Hexham

From the A695, which runs parallel with the A69 from Newcastle to Hexham, take New Ridley Road south out of Stocksfield. This t turn is opposite the Chemist shop in Stockfield. After a mile or so take the left turn up the hill and you’ll hit Hedley on the Hill, where you can’t miss The Feathers. 
From the south its best to take the A68 and turn off for Stocksfield and New Ridley (Lead Road) opposite a turn for Slaley. Continue on and across the next junction (B6309). After going through New Ridley, take the next right after the Golf club up to Hedley on the hill.
The website includes a map showing where we are in relation to different locations in the region.

Public transport

There is no public transport to the village but Stocksfield has good bus and train links and is only 2 miles away. Local taxis can be booked to bring you up to the pub unless you want to walk up one of the many footpaths to Hedley. As the name suggests, it is up hill and of course the return is all down hill!

Fantastic as ever

Kirsty T, Newcastle upon Tyne, United Kingdom
I've been lucky enough to eat at The Feathers several times now. I am never, ever disappointed. The selection is great, the food and drink delicious and staff friendly and accommodating. Today was my first Sunday lunch there and it was a very good deal with prices for 1, 2, or 3 courses. Keep up the great work! Yum!

Absolutely Fabulous!

Visited this week after an absence of more than a year (our fault, not theirs) and had an absolutely fabulous evening meal. Excellent quality and beautifully cooked, high quality ingredients. Cannot praise the chef enough. We have said before that The Feathers has never let us down, and we are pleased to be able to continue to say just that. Well done to all at The Feathers and thank you.

As good as ever

Really nice lunch on a Friday. Staff as attentive as ever, great choice of beers. COD and chips unbeatable, but milk marinated ox liver was amazing.

Socialising again!

Quick review. Shared the heritage salad and bread plus pate - more than enough. Sweet plaice and tender pork followed. On a day like today we needed a phone camera to drink in the scenery - next time - stunningly Lovely service I have to add including food and water for the puppy :-)

Me and the Mrs stopped off whilst staying near Prudhoe. We checked the website first of all to see if dogs were allowed, unfortunately they wasn't but on the day we visited, the sun was cracking't flags so we turned up and sat outside. Very welcoming, friendly and advisory staff who gave me advice on which beer is like. We wasn't that hungry but we decided to jump straight to dessert where I had a Yorkshire Rhubarb Crumble which was beautiful. My wife had an Almond Tart which again she couldn't fault. If we hadn't of had the pooch we would have stopped for lunch inside. From our experience, 10/10.
