A typical country pub with B&B rooms. Rooms are small but clean and well enough equipped. Bathroom was spacious and had all that we needed. Views over the countryside from the bedroom were lovely. The food is all based on mainly local produce from their farm. The restaurant area, especially the Garden Room, is beautifully decorated. Cooking was first class...

This pub was recommended by our house rental company and they were right. Although we were disappointed that the full menu isn't available at lunchtime, the small menu was good quality and the staff friendly and helpful. The seafood was tasty and the real ale was good too. The conservatory dining area is bright and clean, the food served piping...

A quick read through the visitors book where we were staying mentioned The Pack Horse in Ellingham, so we booked in for an evening meal on the last night of our holiday. Lots of choice on the menu, but we decided on a couple of pub classics - steak and ale pie and a burger. Both were done to perfection,...

Great local pub with good quality food, wish we were there for dinner as we could have had the evening menu. Lunch menu was great however and alterations were accommodated with great ease. We stayed in Seahouses for a week and would advise anybody to try this pub with great confidence. Staff very welcoming and friendly and service great.

Firstly the good. The Pack Horse Inn is situated in a lovely quiet village conveniently just off the A1. The proprietor was friendly and welcoming and the bar had a warm and atmosphere helped by an open fire. Sadly the room which we stayed in(room 3) let the experience down. The cleaning was was below par, the duvet cover looked...

The bedroom we stayed in could do with a make over,. On arrival to room.first thing we noticed was the wrinkled quilt cover. It needed ironing. The room was small with a small wardrobe which had a thick layer of dust on top also the lampshade had thick layer of dust on . But after a hectic day we decided...

We are up the coast most weekends at our holiday home so have tried the usual places like Low Newton, Craster and Bamburgh which are all good at more or less the same price which is the same here.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
We offer bed and breakfast and a one-bed (twin) self catering holiday cottage. Our restaurant offers superb food, wines and ales in this traditional Northumberland village pub. If you enjoy good food at a reasonable price then the Pack Horse Inn is the place to eat. All the food is prepared fresh daily using the best locally sourced ingredients. There is no bought in pre-prepared food served at the Pack Horse, and consequently the menu changes almost on a daily basis to ensure the freshest most interesting seasonal food is always available. ... more   less
