Stopped off for a lunchtime meal with our disabled Mum. Brilliant access to all facilities for us all. Friendly , extremely helpful staff. Nothing was too much trouble. The varied menu is served all day. many choices to suit all tastes and requirements. Plenty of room to move around, in fact quite spacious. We thoroughly enjoyed our time there. So many thanks to all.

Visited here with my husband a few times since Jan, varying from breakfast and dinner, if you are wanting hearty warm pub food you have come to the right place. I had the lamb shank for my main and it was delicious fell to pieces. It was complimented with mash potato and mint sauce. The pub is very modern with a homely/warm decor with plenty of seating. You have to go to the bar to order and pay however your food is brought out to you and very promptly! This place also offers accommodation, I am unsure what the rooms are like however if the restaurant is anything to go off by, I would expect them to be of a high standard as well! Will be continuing to visit here. :)

I stayed here with my husband for a wedding just outside of Alnwick for two nights. We arrived late in the evening due to travelling up after work and were able to check in really quickly. The check in desk was a little counter at the end of the bar and they were expecting us when we arrived. The restaurant does serve food but this stops at 9PM. There is however a McDonald’s right next door which was great as we’d not eaten since lunchtime. Our room was 102, on the first floor which was close to reception up a set of stairs. There was also a lift which was really handy for me, being six months pregnant, tired and having multiple bags, but I wouldn’t say it was any quicker than taking the stairs. Also, you have to buzz into the corridor which leads to all rooms which is a touch I appreciated, meaning we felt safe and secure. Our room was big and spacious and the bed was huge! There were tea and coffee making facilities which had more than enough teabags and coffee sachets for a couple of nights. They also provided big fluffy white towels. The shower was really powerful and the bathroom was well equipped. There was lots of room to get ready in the morning, with a big desk/dressing table I could spread all of my makeup on. There were also several mirrors in the room. As we were going to a wedding, I spent a long while getting ready until about 11:45, so put the do not disturb sign on the door and forgot to take it off! It was a welcome surprise when we got back later that night to find a neat pile of new towels and tea and coffee supplies waiting for us outside the door! We had breakfast as part of our booking down in the main bar/restaurant area, which did the job nicely. It was buffet style and there were plenty of hot options as well as cereal, fruit and croissants. Check out was quick and easy, and there is a huge car park at the back which was great with all of our bags! I would definitely stay here again if I were up in Northumberland!

My husband and I stopped for dinner on our way home. The restaurant was very nice inside and it was quite busy. We ordered our food which you need to go up to the bar and order. The menu is pricey. There are lots on it. The food was really good. Staff were friendly as well. Would definitely go back
