The Duke of Wellington Inn is nestled in the Tyne valleys village of Newton just off the A69 near Corbridge, within easy access to Newcastle, Hadrian’s Wall Country, Hexham and Northumberland’s National Park. The inn has recently reopened following an extensive refurbishment. The new décor reflects the traditional country inn history but with a modern twist. Existing oak and stone has been enhanced with modern colours, furniture and fabrics. Lunches and dinners are served seven days a week in the bar and dining room.

The food provides traditional British comfort eating to an exceptional standard and makes use of local, seasonal ingredients. A comprehensive range of beers and ales compliments an extensive wine list. The inn experience continues with seven bedrooms providing a very high quality of luxury accommodation. There is an internal cycle and golf club store along with a boot room for those visitors who favour a less relaxing country break. The outstanding views across the Tyne valley provide the ultimate conclusion to a visit to the Duke of Wellington which will stay with you long after you leave.

A lovely village with attractive stone houses with excellent views across the fields from the hotel - good safe parking and room to sit outside in the sunshine and take it all in. Meeting here with fishing friends and like any new place we were slightly apprehensive - but overall a very good, comfortable and enjoyable stay for four nights. There were a few hiccups over the water for baths,showers etc but these problems were eventually rectified and everything was fine. Sterling work was done by the girls running the show - Sophie,Flora,Gail and the trainee lawyer behind the bar and others in the restaurant who worked amazingly hard and with patience, courtesy and smiles and who undoubtedly saved the day for old piscators like us who can sometimes be difficult after a hard day on the river - oh really? ! We all appreciated the complimentary bottle of wine which helped to lower the temperature. Great value, great breakfasts,great service,great rooms ( tea,coffee,water etc) with good wines but a bottle of Highland Park behind the bar would be a good addition. We will definitely return. NB. Watch out for travelling USA tourists all eating in the restaurant with their hats on - disappointed not to see any stetsons though.

amazing views over the tyne valley

enjoyed a traditional Sunday lunch with the family, quality of the food was exceptional, service 1st class. Great to sit outside on the terrace & soak up the view.


Lucy B,
We had booked from Friday to Monday. Arrived early on Friday and took advantage of the lunch menu and the sun terrace. The food was excellent and after the long drive, sitting in the sun with good food and a cold lager was lovely. Our room was airy and spacious, with everything we could need. I fell in love with the huge bath and considered making him sleep in it so I didn’t have to share the bed 😄 We are at the restaurant in the evening and the food was really good. There was a good variety on offer. Slept well and got up for breakfast, again, a really good choice. He had the full cooked and commented on how good it was. He really enjoyed the black pudding and even asked the chef about it. All in all I can not fault our stay. The staff were all so friendly and helpful. Location was stunning, lovely views and fields of sheep with lambs (although if he did his Hannibal Lector impression “can you here the lambs Clarice” one more time I would’ve happily killed him) Close enough to Newcastle but far enough out to avoid crowds. Close to train stations to get into Newcastle. Would happily return.

First rate.

Been here a few times for various occasions, but never Sunday lunch. Sunday lunch is equally a good as any other day, fantastic roast beef. Huge Yorkshire puddings, plenty of veg all cooked to perfection. The option of having the beef pink or cooked on is a good touch too. Once again the staff were friendly, helpful and the service was excellent. The food came out exceptionally quick, but we weren't rushed to finish. Deserts were just as good as the mains. Well worth a visit.

Within the space of a week, unusually for us, we had a lunch and an evening meal here. Beautifully set overlooking the countryside this pub does bar and restaurant meals. The restaurant is attractive with some lovely views. Two or three course lunch is well priced and attractively presented by pleasant staff. Our evening meal however was a little disappointing. I had fish and chips. The fish was cooked to perfection. The chips were dreadful - I love well done chips but they were well done, soggy and the potato inside was an unpleasant dark and greasy colour. My husband and our friend asked for beef and lamb respectively, neither of which could be cooked as they requested. It came as it came which felt odd for fillet of beef for £25. This pub is worth a visit as overall it was not an unpleasant experience just consider what you're ordering.
