On our way from South Yorkshire to Beadnell for a week's holiday we stopped off here for lunch. I must admit it wasn't our first choice. Although the place was like most other 'chains' it was clean and quite comfortable with quite a nice ambience. Also the staff were pleasant. However, when you pay £13.95 for a burger you expect more. We were recently in London and paid less for very nice burgers. The patty itself was very average, the bacon was hardly cooked, and the coleslaw that came with it was very runny and had no flavour. The chips were quite nice though although lots of 'scraps' in there with them. I suppose the saving grace was that we didn't really expect great home cooked food so weren't disappointed, however the food just seemed too expensive for the quality on offer.
Had a recent stay at the Hogs Head, this is the fourth time we have stayed there. Hotel is new and well presented, staff are very friendly and helpful. Rooms are of a decent size and very clean. Down side, the thermostat on the hot water could do with being turned up and vegetarian choice was limited. I think we will return.
Delicious food at a reasonable price

Expected basic pub grub for the price, but it was delicious. Much better than your average pub food and a double-surprise as you don't really expect a random pub by the A1 to be this good. Decor and staff also lovely. Highly recommended.

Went on Sunday 27th for my partners birthday. We went early so had no problems finding a table. Staff lovely pleasant and welcoming. Choice of beef pork or turkey. I had the beef, partner had beef and kids had turkey. Very tasty and huge Yorkshire puddings. Veg was nice and my partner enjoyed the stuffing slices. My 10 year old ate the whole plateful. Reasonably priced in a nice location. Will be back.
Great hotel. Lovely breakfast. Rooms large and clean. Would have liked 3 cups in room as that’s how many guests there were. Great stay
