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.

Nice country pub


Gill S, Sunderland, United Kingdom
Ate here as we were staying close by and visiting Kielder observatory. The staff were lovely and we enjoyed our food. It's not your typical pub food ie no scampi and chips etc but that is not a criticism. We all had slow roast lamb and it was beautiful. The only reason I didn't give 5 stars is my ham hock starter was a bit disappointing. We would definitely eat here again.

Dark skies experience


terryd443, Sunderland
Unfortunately only used the hotel as a place to stay so didn’t get a chance to sample the beers and atmosphere. Very comfortable room, slept well nice and quiet peaceful. Brilliant breakfast taken at leisure, no hurry! Hopefully be back later in the year and will make it a 2 night stay to see the stars one night and try the beers the other night. Very hospitable friendly staff. Thank you

A welcome in


devoniantoper, Beverley, United Kingdom
Kielder Water is a gem in the crown of English countryside. Soothing and serene in spring and summer, often brooding and majestic in the depths of winter and always a beautiful place to be. Nestled less than 2 miles eastwards of the huge dam is the hamlet of Stannersburn where The Pheasant Inn is the most relaxing of venues. Lovely accommodation and superb food make this excellent value. The staff are friendly, very helpful and show great pride in the place. It is a charming hotel and exactly suited to its wonderful setting. No wonder we return each year.

Missed opportunity?


bellytubby, Lockerbie, United Kingdom
Visited this charming pub on spec as we were travelling through the region. The bar was busy without being packed and a very hot summers day, this contrasted with the ridiculously long queues at the bigger and busier bar in the nearby Kielder Lodges. Found a table, food was ordered, arrived in a timely fashion, and consumed in an equally timely manner. All was good - fresh and tasty. The accompanying salad was rather unimaginative and dated - my tomato evoked distant memories of a Chinese restaurant circa 1982. Both my wife and I commented on the fact that 4 separate couples were turned away for lunch as this was served only until 2pm (the website actually states 2.30). The big hand had barely passed the hour! All 4 couples were then informed that evening meals started at 6pm. Were they supposed to hang around for a further 3 hours and 55-ish minutes?
