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!

Dog Friendly

Kep70, Brigg, United Kingdom
Stayed in the next village but walked here on a couple of evenings for some food and drinks and really pleased they were dog friendly. Nice place inside with lovely wood burner. They have a restaurant or you can eat in the bar area which is what we did due to having a dog with us. Nice real ales to opt from and great to see a place that has nice cider and not the usual cheap strongbow. We ate here twice and I have to say I was not that impressed with the food for the money. I had chicken curry, rice and a popadom.....unfortunately my chicken was dry and the rice was rubbery, my husband had twice cooked belly pork which he said was ok. On our second visit we had the potato skins to share, not many on the plate and very greasy, also not what we were expecting they were more like the potato peelings that they had deep fried. I had sea bass whch was ok but nothing to get excited aboutand my husband had the chicken with haggis which tasted more like stuffing from the christmas lunch. All in all from the write ups I was looking forward to great food and was disappointed and unfortunately the menu is very limited and there is no specials board to fall back on in the bar area and we were not offered one if it was in the restaurant. For a dog friendly pub as well only the locals made a fuss of any dog that came in and this is one of the pubs in the area that do not give out doggy treats, most places have jars on the bar for you to help yourself to doggy biscuits which is disappointing. The locals were very friendly and very helpful with information and they told us that the people that own this place also own the Boatside in Warden where the food is much tastier and we were made to feel more welcome by the staff.

C2C ride overnight stop

Lala L, Abergavenny, United Kingdom
Wow. Stayed here, 3 blokes on the C2C Hadrian's Wall route. Firstly it's in exactly the right spot, more or less halfway. The owners are fabulous, friendly and welcoming. Rooms were excellent, HUGE bath, very welcome after cycling, hot water didn't run out, even after 2 bathfulls! The food is excellent, varied and reasonably priced, beers really good. If we'd known how good this place was we'd have stayed 2 nights. Secure store for bikes a huge plus! Several mile downhill to the pub if coming from the West. Cannot recommend this place enough.

Good location

RB5655, Canberra, Australia
Great location for visiting Hadrian’s wall. Room was nice but tiny. A quiet location with a good breakfast provided. Dinner at the restaurant was good with very generous serves. Staff were all very pleasant and friendly.

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!!!
