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!

A Very Good Stay At The Red Lion, Newbrough

Trevor W, Suffolk, United Kingdom
First time in Northumberland and we weren't disappointed. Whilst retaining the charm and character of an old inn, the room was clean, well equipped and very comfortable. Sue and Andrew, the landlady and landlord, were very friendly and nothing was too much trouble for them. The quality of the food was very good as was the service throughout our stay. We were made to feel welcome by the locals in the bar and Sue was always willing to suggest places to visit in the area. We stayed here for 5 nights and intend to return.


ronf197, Bath, United Kingdom
Stayed for 6 nights whilst visiting various parts of Northumberland. Although tucked away from the main centres it is within easy striking distance of Hadrian's Wall, Hexham, Newcastle etc. The accommodation is very good, noting that is based around a very old Inn so some creaky floorboards, the food excellent, great breakfast and evening meals. There is also a nice walk along the local burn. Thoroughly recommended if you do not want a chain hotel or standard B&B.

Lovely pub and B&B

Great for Hadrian Wednesday club cycling

Ian B, Birmingham, United Kingdom
The Wednesday club stayed here for one night , while cycling coast to coast . The welcome at the red lion is great , they even stored 7 bikes for us , the rooms are very clean comfortable and warm , all the facilities you would expect are there and the food in the pub is really good with a nice selection of local ales . The staff were really accommodating and friendly The pub is at the centre of the village and it’s got a great feel to it , would have no hesitation in recommending to any one , thank you from the WC club
