I stayed here for a couple of nights while attending a wedding at the nearby Treehouse Restaurant with many members of the same wedding party. Was greeted with a swift check in process and the staff were very helpful as we had arrived much before the stated check in time. I’d booked for a B&B as well as an evening meal as part of my package. It was agreed by the hotel that we could change our evening meal to lunch as we would be eating out at the treehouse for our evening meal. The food served was of a good quality and served quickly. The rooms are very large and of a very good quality with comfortable beds and good showers. The only criticism I have is that as my room was sited next to the A1 I didn’t have the greatest nights of sleep as there was still a surprising amount of traffic throughout the night. Due to the way the hotel is laid out there are many rooms that face the A1 and many that don’t. There were other members of the wedding party who mentioned the same as me in regards to the noise from the traffic. Overall I enjoyed the stay at The Hogs Head and wouldn’t hesitate to stay again providing I had a room facing away from the A1. It may be worth the hotel looking into maybe using triple glazing and sound proofing on the rooms that are closest to the A1 and that would make it an extremely good option for anybody staying in the Alnwick area.

Was going so well

Was going so well until we got to the puddings. The wait to get a children's pudding was long and our child got bored wait and my wife had nearly finished hers and that was with us chasing it up. Also the wife pudding had burnt cake in it. Other than that the service was ok.
The Hogs Head Inn replied: Thank you for leaving this review, I am so sorry to hear about the desserts! Did you mention to a member of staff about this as we would have happily rectify. We would always far rather know at the time if something is not quite right so we can put it right. We do hope you come back to give us another try!
Business food stop

Stopped on a business trip to Scotland for some food. Great looking place. Fresh and spotless. The food was good. Had the chicken curry, nice flavours, nothing special but reasonably priced. Great service, quick and efficient. Would stop again

Went for lunch we had one Burger which was Ok. But served on a wooden board which I personally think is unhygienic. I also had a Lamb Tagine with Couscous. Very tasty.service was good in a nice warm restaurant.
