Had several meals here over the past 6 months and its never failed to deliver. There's a good range of meals to choose from the main menu with some delicious choices on the specials boards. The staff are always professional and friendly and the atmosphere is a typical homely local pub, just great whatever the season.

Not been for a while but will be going back soon. The menu is quite extensive. The haddock and chips are delicious. Fish is huge and very tasty but even though it was crispy it could have done with a little longer to drain as there was quite a lot of grease on the plate. Service very efficient.

We called here for lunch. I had Welsh rarebit, which was delicious, rich and satisfying. My husband had a bacon and mushroom hot stottie, which was disappointing. First of all, the bread seemed to be ciabatta rather than stottie and it was very dry. The chips that came with it were pale and didn't taste great. The food took quite...

Stayed with my sister in castles room, lovely and clean, cosy and quiet. We had dinner here both nights and it was very good, even catering for vegans with no problems. Loved the area and this was a great place to stay whilst we explored, thanks

I recently stayed here for a long weekend. This is a great find beautifully situated in the middle of the stunning Northumberland countryside. We arrived late but the kitchen was still open so we were able to eat a delicious meal. The next morning the breakfast was tasty with lots of choice. A great start to the day. The atmosphere...
