Overview

This historic 17thC inn is run with an instinctive understanding of its traditions. The stone walls hold old photos of the community; from colliery to smithy, a vital record of its past. The bars are wonderful: brass beer taps glow, anything wooden has been polished to perfection and the clock above the fire keeps perfect time.

The house ales are expertly kept - Timothy Taylors, and local beers from Wylam Brewery. Robin cooks with relish nothing too fancy but more than enough to keep a smile on your face: fresh fish simply cooked, game and mushroom pie and slow roasted Northumberland Lamb. As for Sunday Lunch The Observer readers voted it one of the best in the North.

Bedrooms in the purpose-built annexe and the old hay barn are simple and tidy, not grand but cosy, and you'll get a piping hot breakfast the next morning - accompanied maybe by a view of the sheepdogs bringing the herd in for shearing. This is the glorious Northumberland National Park - no traffic jams, no rush and don't miss the sculpture at Kielder. Kielder Water is the largest man made lake in Europe and has the least light polluted skies.

Try everything from sailing to golfing, nature safaris to working forest visits. Visit the new Observatory, or further a field Northumberland's top tourist attactions: Alnwick Castle and Gardens, Hadrian's Wall and Forts plus countless castles, rolling countryside and miles of rugged coastline. Then hire bikes and cycle round the lake, or saddle up a pony and take to the hills. close to Kielder Water. Fishing, riding and all water sports are nearby, as are the Scottish Borders and Hadrian's Wall.

Excellent stay


brownsWestYorkshire, West Yorkshire
We stayed here on the recommendation of our son who has stayed here twice before. We were not disappointed. Our room was very comfortable and spotlessly clean. For our evening meals there was plenty of choice from the menu board and when the food arrived it was served with a smile from the waiting staff and was delicious. There was also an excellent choice at breakfast which accommodated all tastes. We would definately stay here again if we come back to Keilder.

Research


Murray S,
This is the best place I’ve stayed in over all trips to the UK. Accommodation is fabulous and the food is the best. No wonder it’s won so many awards - well deserved! It’s well located in a quiet location. It seemed to be very popular so worth planning well ahead

Food good, sweets were more for cold weather


Nikki M,
Had a meal here recently. Had the twice baked cheese soufflé to start which I found disappointing. It didn’t have much taste. Goats cheese tartlet was nice. The salad with it had a dressing already on which I would have preferred separately so it could be added if required. My partner had the steak and kidney pie he commented that there wasn’t a lot of steak in it. It did look homemade and he did say the gravy was tasty.

Fantastic Sunday lunch


mummybrown81, Nottinghamshire, United Kingdom
We are two adults and two children age 7 and 4. We are staying in Kielder Water and chose to dine here based on tripadvisor reviews and weren’t disappointed! The food was outstanding very tasty and locally sourced. The service was fast and the inside has a lovely local village pub feel. Only slight downside is no kids menu but several of the adult dishes were available as a child’s portion. My daughter had the lasagne and my son had the chicken pie both appropriate sizes for them and they both really enjoyed them. I can imagine though with fussier children you could struggle as none of the normal fried stuff and chips! Nothing for the children to do inside or outside the pub but we took our own colouring books etc and as the service was so fast they didn’t need much entertaining. I had the lamb and my husband had the steak and kidney pie. The lamb was to die for real melt in the mouth meat. My only improvement would be the accompaniments were roast potatoes and new potatoes, carrots and red cabbage so could have done without one type of potatoes and more variety of veg. Overall great local pub with great food and service but don’t go expecting stuff for kids

Would recommend


katienewcastle2014,
Me and my boyfriend travelled up to Kielder from Newcastle to cycle Kielder Lake. We left the car at the b&b and went out for the day. The staff were lovely, the full place has an old cosy feel to it. Very clean and the rooms were lovely. The view from our room was facing out into the fields. The restaruant opens from 6pm to 8pm and the pub opens from 6pm to 11pm. We had our tea at 6pm and chose from the evening menu, if you are staying with the b&b your seats for evening meal and breakfast are reserved. Unfortunately there was not much variety on the menu for me, and was pretty expensive for example 8oz-10oz steak was £19.50 i dont know what it came with as the menu didnt say..but we had puffed pastry garlic mushrooms for a starter and lasagne and salad for our main as well as sticky toffee pudding and custard for our desert along side 2 bottles of Budweiser and a J2O and our bill was £54. The food itself was gorgeous I couldn't fault it. The only thing I would say is the place could of done with a proper menu to say what foods came with what but other than that I enjoyed our stay and would really recommend it to couples. I would not say this is a family b&b as the food is limited especially for kids (they don't offer chips) and there isn't much to do for kids around the b&b. Breakfast was free and you could help yourself to fruit, bread, coissants, Apple juice, fresh orange and cerial. Then order your breakfast from the menu. We both had the full English which consisted of 1 egg, 2 rashers of bacon, 1 hash brown, 1 sausage, 1 tomato and some mushrooms as well as some toast which you can choose brown or white.- was lovely.
