Another fantastic stay


Paul R, Renfrew, United Kingdom
Just to reiterate from my last review of my last visit, very happy once again, bang on the money, great DB&B package, including generous carvery if your stay is over a Sunday. Although not in the the throng of the Alnwick Attractions, it's only a 2 minute drive away, or £6 in a taxi, very handy for the A1 and a great base to explore this part of the country. We stayed for our anniversary weekend, met up with some local friends, went up to Alnwick town centre for a few drinks and saw a good bit of Northumberland. We had occassion to ask the staff for assistance on two occasions, after the massive carvery we wanted a break before ordering our desserts, so we were able to come back a couple of hours later, also although the carvery had been cleared away staff were happy to fetch my wife some more gravy from the kitchen. What makes this place a rung above the normal travel inn or lodge is the quality of service. You have some really pleasant and helpful friendly people working for you at the Hogs Head Inn, as we found the last time. I've used the Hogs Head as a base for work, and as a base for a break. I have two silly daft things to point out, minor grumbles I suppose, but in balance.. - the light switch position for the en-suite is in a daft place. - £3.50 for a soft-drink is a bit steep. Otherwise absolutely delighted, Thanks for having us.

Mr


tomlZ1702DG,
Sunday, time for a leisurely lunch in pleasant surroundings. We arrived at the Hogshead not quite sure what to expect, but were pleasantly surprised. A LA carte offerings were available, but we opted for the carvery. These available in small, medium and large helpings and priced accordingly from £7-50/to £10-59. We opted for the medium. Choice from 3 meats, pork, beef, turkey. Everything else self serve. This being: roast and boiled baby potatoes, Yorkshires, carrots, peas, turnip, broccoli, stuffing, pork crackling and lashings of gravy. All piping hot and delicious to boot. You decide what to select and the amount of each. The meats were well cooked and succulent, the accompanying tasty and satisfying. This was a delight, a plateful of good, wholesome food. I was glad we chose the medium option, don't think we could have managed the larger. This washed down with an excellent pint of "black sheep", a glass if Shiraz, and a gin& tonic. The bar was well stocked with choice beers, wines, and spirits. All in all, an enjoyable lunch, with friendly, efficient service. Highly recommended. The adjoining hotel accommodation is also an additional benefit. The restaurant area tastefully decorated in rustic style. I could find nothing to criticise, and everything to praise. Situated conveniently alongside the A1, access is good to all points of the compass. Well worth trying out to the uninitiated. Brilliant!

First Visit - very impressed - will return


JonnyThomp, Newcastle upon Tyne, United Kingdom
We visited Northumberland and stayed in Embleton for the weekend. With limited choice nearby we soon ventured into Alnwick and found The Hog’s Head Inn situated on the outskirts of Alnwick where we ate on Saturday night. When we entered the building it was very busy but we were greeted by a friendly member of staff who seated us without any fuss. After checking the menu we ordered at the bar and were served by Gabrielle. She took our order and informed us that there was a small wait due to the high volume of orders which had been placed. We thought this was very informative as most restaurants wouldn’t tell you. Our food came promptly and we are very happy with what we ordered. The meals were excellent especially the Homemade Game Pie and the Pork Loin. We thoroughly enjoyed our visit and even returned the next day for the carvery! The two girls that served us were very friendly and attentive despite a few grumpy diners. It seems you can’t please everybody. Can’t wait to return!

Great rooms and convenience


148louiseh,
Arrived later than planned on Friday evening due to the artic conditions on the drive up. We checked in at 8:40pm and were informed that we must order food in the next ten minutes as the kitchen closes at 9. A little inpersonal given the hotel was nearly empty and the weather was extremely bad. Dinner was good with good size protions. Room was lovely, really big with a king size bed and small bathroom. Breakfast was a bit disappointing, no grapefruit or fruit salads just a bowl of whole fruit, plain yoghurt and lack of coffee choice. Cooked breakfast was ok with fried potatoes rather than hash browns. Great location to visit Alnwick or as an overnight stop when traveling on the A1.
