Family visit

harshman, York, UK
Visited for dinner with 3 adults and 1 teenager. I opted for the large fish and chip. It was a good choice. My grandson really enjoyed his burger but he enjoyed his dessert of sticky toffee pudding even more. We were all pleased with our meals and the service was excellent.

Friendly staff ok menu

elhana, northumberland
Visited for lunch with friends. Pub nice and lots of seating areas to choose from. Staff friendly and helpful. Menu limited if you want any traditional food with vegetables as everything comes with chips, rice or pasta. I ordered minute steak and onions in a ciabatta with chips and side salad. Unfortunately the steak was too tough for me to eat and even difficult to cut with a knife. The staff were very helpful and gave me time to choose an alternative (I opted for turkey and cranberry on ciabatta) which was fine. They came back to the table and checked everything was ok and when they cleared the plates they refunded me £2 as the turkey was cheaper. I hadn't realised this so well done to the staff for dealing with the situation.

Wedding Party

As a very large wedding party we had the pleasure of staying at the Hogs Head Inn at the beginning of September. The rooms are a great size, with super sized beds and all the usual bits and pieces you would expect as well as being good value for monely. The breakfast was delicious with plenty of choice and a good choice of lunch and evening meals are also available. Travelling from Cheshire it was easy to find and only a mile outside if Alnwick which has plenty to see. We will definitely revisit and would recommend The Hogs Head to anyone who finds themselves in this lovely part of the country. We

Sunday Carvery - pleasant

CK040910, Sheffield, England, United Kingdom
We entered as a party of 7 (including toddler) with no booking for Sunday lunch and were immediately impressed with the service. A gentleman very quickly arranged a table for us and ensured we had everything we needed. We all had the Sunday carvery and so got our food quickly. The meats were cooked very well and the yorkshires were perfect, homemade and a good size! Unfortunately we found the veg selection to be a little lack lustre and underdone but the stuffing and gravy were tasty. Due to the veg we found the meal a little overpriced but not offensively so. The pub itself was clean, had a good play area and a nice atmosphere though I personally could have done with better lighting for a lunch service. All in all a pleasant dining experience.


C A, London, United Kingdom
We booked this at the last minute when anywhere cheaper was already booked up. The restaurant had cheerful staff and a good selection. The room was large but poorly lit. Checkout was 10.30 which we were not warned of at check in. The inn backs onto countryside but essentially is a service station. Spar/ petrol station/ mcd all handily next door. In a word overpriced- 4 times the price of a travelodge/ Premierinn and only slightly nicer.
