Andy, Sue and Staff welcome you to the Red Lion at Newbrough, an old coaching inn dating back to the 1190's that has been brought back to the 21st century whilst maintaining all the charm of a countryside bed and breakfast with its log and coal burners and comfortable chairs. Relax and enjoy local real ale, fine wines or other beverages available from the well-stocked bar. We have two restaurants; the Stable and Beattie's, both have log fires and a homely atmosphere. We offer a selection of freshly made food with a twist; the Red Lion prides itself on providing very high quality delicious food. The menu is season and the produce is locally sourced, our cod and mackerel are caught off the Seahouses and Beadnell coast only an hours drive away and well worth a visit.

Andy has been a professional chef for more than twenty years in many fine establishments gaining 2 rosette accolades, you can be sure of the highest quality food and service here. Breakfast is served in the Stable restaurant from 8:30 until 9:30 am, lunch from 12-2 pm evening meals from 6-9 pm Tuesday to Saturday (during winter months till 8 pm Tuesday to Thursday).

We have five letting ensuite rooms all upstairs, room 1 can be a twin/double, room 2 is a double, room 3 can be a single/twin or double as with room 5 and room 4 is our family room, 2 adults and 2 children or 3 adult occupancy.

We have a boot and laundry room with washer/drier and ironing facilities available,and secure outside storage for bikes. Our new Stanegate room which is situated in part of the pub has recently opened to celebrate all things local, it represents local history along with lots of craft and artwork by local residents and showcases for new and developing local talent.

The Red Lion enjoys a scenic location in the picturesque village of Newbrough four miles from Hadrian's Wall. The historic town of Hexham is close by with its lovely Abbey. If you fancy a spot of shopping, Newcaslte, Gateshead and Carlisle are only a 30 minute drive away. Northumberland is a wonderful county with many unspoilt areas of outstanding natural beauty. Bamburgh castle, The Farne Islands and Lindisfarne (Holy Island) are all beautiful and worth a visit Cragside, Wallington Hall, Dunstanburgh Castle and Alnwick Castle and Gardens are a must as well!

Peace, tranquility and a warm welcome

Karen B,
We stayed for one night while visiting relatives nearby. We had our evening meal and breakfast here. The food is excellent; particularly the locally sourced lamb hot pot which just melted in the mouth, Breakfast too was excellent with plenty of choice from both continental and full Northumbrian menus. The room was very clean and comfortable with lots of attention for the smaller details that show thought has been given to customers needs.The location in peaceful, picturesque countryside means I would definitely return when the opportunity arises.

What a gem of a place

We stayed for one night while on a road trip from London to Edinburgh before Christmas, and so thankful for the nights stay. The room was comfortable, cozy and all you need. The pub downstairs offers some of the yummiest pub food I've ever eaten, with staff being incredibly lovely and beyond helpful. Highly recommend staying and eating here, it's a marvelous old pub and inn.

Hidden Gem

Hugh C,
10/10 in every department comfort ,staff,food and ale and of course the friendly customers in the bar top notch we stayed for 2 nights and were spoiled rotten from the wonderful comfortable bed and huge breakfast to their own Twice Brewed Ale Also we had two of the best meals we have had in a long long time.The Twice Baked Souffle is a must for any cheese lovers! We honestly could not find any faults with this place and wouldn't hesitate to recommend it.We will be returning to the Red Lion the next time we are in the area

Great atmosphere, superb value and excellent food

Mike J, Lincoln, United Kingdom
Four of stayed for three nights while in the area and we were all delighted with the hotel. It is also the popular local pub and the welcome when you walk in just what you would want warm and friendly with a comfy sofa and a log burner to sit by. All the staff we met were smiley and chatty and could not do enough to help us. We needed and early breakfast, no problem, we had to leave at 6 on the last day and we were presented with a very generous and tasty lunch bag in lieu of breakfast (thick cut beef rolls with horseradish delicious) We ate in the restaurant on 2 night and were treated to some very fine dishes beautifully cooked and presented, the beef and ale pie is just sublime and I also had pink cooked lamb with the most delicious sauce. Everyone agreed that the food was fabulous and the prices very reasonable. The rooms were good according to my friends and I shared a twin, it was warm, comfortable and equipped with not only a kettle for tea and chocolate but also a coffee machine which was much used by us. The bathroom was huge and very well appointed, it looked brand new with an l shaped bath to accommodate an excellent shower as well. All the rooms were immaculately clean. If you know the area you will know how beautiful and indeed interesting it is and the hotel offers great views across open country in a very quiet village but only a short drive from the A69 and to the north the spectacular Kielder Forest and lake. the Red Lion is a great place to stay and I will be back.

Excellent value & quality

chris p, Northumberland, United Kingdom
We tried the Red Lion out for a 'Sunday Lunch'. Thankfully it wasn't Sunday lunches only; nor was it predictable fare. The menu was not extensive (a GOOD point); it was interesting, varied & good value! Two of us had three courses, which we don't normally do...but the menu was so tempting and not the normal 'run-of-the-mill' pub grub. Service was excellent throughout...and there was a good choice of ales from the bar. Delighted we tried the Red Lion...look forward to going again...highly recommended!
