The Hogs Head is one of the Inn Collection: this outlet is a modern building located just outside Alnwick and off the A1 on a small industrial estate, so handy for both travellers and locals alike. There is a good safe children's playground for the under 13s and plenty of parking, but no views of the rolling country etc from the restaurant. We went for an early evening meal. Food is served all day until 9pm, from breakfast through to dinner, which again is most helpful for a pre evening meeting meal. Food was up market quite expensive pub fare, the ale was excellent and the dining room/lounge extensive with different types of seating to accommodate people's preferences/needs. Well done. Staff were attentive and helpful, service swift and one could eat at one's own pace.Will appeal to a wide range of clientele, but it is on the expensive side for pub food.
Food was ok
Went here on the morning of my brothers wedding for the breakfast as it had been recomended by others. Paid for breakfast too be told that it finished at 9:30 however we would keep it open for a little longer too accomodate. Thats good customer service if you ask me. Selection was OK but could be better. Found bacon cold and eggs had been left far too long they could have probably bounced off the floor. However sausages where unbeleivable. I did ask for 2 coffees however these never materialised. My nephew was having a bit of a neltdown so we decided too finish food and knocj it on the head. I will return for food again however not the breakfast
The Hogs Head Inn replied: So sorry you felt this way about our breakfast, thank you for leaving the comment's. We do hope to see you again soon!
Dinner time snack

We arrived at lunch time 12pm and were offered a table not too far from the bar. We ordered a "beef skillet" and a "pork, black pudding burger" Both meals were excellent and we then ordered a cheese board and a winterberry crumble. The cheese board was again excellent but the crumble was exceptional. No complaints whatsoever about the food. The staff were also attentive but never overbearing. We will be back for a visit soon as we've heard that the Sunday menu is also outstanding.
The Hogs Head Inn replied: Thank you for your review and the 5 stars. I'm pleased to hear you had a lovely dinner with us, we like to assure that everyone is happy. We all hope to see you again soon!
Excellent stay and great value
Stayed here on the way up to watch Scotland vs Italy and so pleased we did. The room was massive and great for our 2 year old toddler, food in the evening and breakfast were all really excellent but the friendliness of the staff is definitely worth a shout out - they were truly outstanding. Would definitely stay here again
The Hogs Head Inn replied: Thank you for your review and for your kind words. Really appreciate the 5 stars, we do take great pride in our services and aim for the highest standard in every area. Hope to see you again in the near future.
