Visited the Pack Horse on Saturday evening. The food was excellent. Both courses were delicious. A lovely menu with lots of choice. Dog friendly which is an added bonus. We were served by Eve who is an asset to the Pack Horse. We will certainly return in the near future to sample some other lovely food. Definitely one of the...

Dear Clare, thank you for your comments and bringing this to our attention. We are very sorry for this extra charge and offer our apologies. This was a misunderstanding between our chef and staff. We completely agree that extra gravy should not come at an additional cost. We would like to offer a drink on the house for you and...

Recently stayed in Ellingham and visited the Pack Horse twice. Sunday lunch was great, with both the beef and chicken supreme very much enjoyed - an interesting bowl of deep fried cauliflower florets accompanied the vegetables. Later in the week we had the beef bourguignon and butternut squash gnocchi - both excellent. Friendly accommodating staff; dog friendly when eating in...

Stopped off on the way up the A1 and so glad we did. The service was super friendly. And the food was delicious. Recommend Black pudding fritter, goats cheese salad, burger and the pork pie. Fantastic food. So much better than MacDonalds!!! Look out for the sign on the A1. Olive green and classy.

We visited whilst staying locally in the village, having tried to get to the bar when we arrived on the Saturday we knew it was popular from the large crowd gathered both inside and out. We booked an early evening meal (accommodating old folks) and were delighted that our four legged pup could join us. Food, service, surroundings and price...

I accept we were a slightly last minute booking and were lucky to get the two bedrooms we required. However, these were very "tight" (I kept banging my shins on the bed legs) and need a little updating. We did peek into the other three rooms (they had been vacated) and two of these were lovely and a good size....

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
