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 seasonal 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 (during winter months till 8 pm Tuesday til Thursday).

We have six 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 adults occupancy and room 6 king size.

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, Newcastle, 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!

Perfect base to explore Hadrian’s Wall

Tanya P, Maidstone, United Kingdom
We spent three nights here to explore Hadrian’s wall, including Housesteads and Vindolanda. We had a wonderful time, the inn is cosy and comfortable, the room was spotlessly clean with well stocked tea and coffee making facilities. The breakfast and dinners were lovely, staff friendly and we were made to feel very welcome. Would definitely recommend this as a base for exploring the area.

I’m so Happy I’m Coming Back!

thomas m,
My wife’s last name is Newbrough, so we thought we would add a couple of days after our British Isles cruise to visit Newbrough, England. She loved seeing her name all over and couldn’t get enough pictures. I enjoyed playing quoits with the local farmers (Max, Phillip, Richard and Andy are the only names i remembered). Both dinner and breakfast were well worth it. The host and hostess welcomed us with great hospitality. We plan on going back next year and spending more time in Newbrough. Looking forward to playing quoits with the locals again. BTW, don’t forget to try the black pudding!!!

Lovely country Inn

We spent three nights there as a base for exploring Northumberland. So convenient. Very comfortable bed and spacious room overlooking fields. Quiet too, even with a pub crowd around. Great choices for breakfast including huge full Northumberland breakfast. Evening meals good and open 7 days a week for residents. Highly recommended.

Excellent Food

We came across this restaurant in the middle of nowhere after trying to find somewhere decent to eat. We were not disappointed. The food, service, and staff were excellent. The ambience was great too. The freshness of food the veg and the cooking was all fabulous. Well deserved of the 5 stars awarded. Well done Red Lion

All round great experience and the dog liked it too!

Jane C,
Room was clean and comfortable couldn't have asked for better. Breakfasts were eagerly awaited as were brilliant. We stayed three nights. Staff very friendly ate in the evening once and it was very well presented and quality of ingredients evident. Super place for a base to explore Northumberland. We also went over to Cumbria only an hour drive. It is well situated for Hadrians Wall and the Fort about 10 mins drive. Easy access back to A1 for on going travel both to the South and North.
