We visited the Cook and Barker last week, while on holiday in Northumbria. Having last been in the north of England over a decade ago, we wondered if this excellent venue would still be the place we remembered so fondly, or if it would have...More

Four of us visited for a Friday night out. The food was fantastic with the Deer, Beef, Gammon and Steak and Ale Pie all being polished off with a few drinks. No shortage of the main course but a bit light on the delicious vegetables....More

A very rainy Thursday lunch time was just the right time to pop into the Cook and Barker for lunch. Tasteful interior, very comfortable seating and attractive tableware all added to the enjoyment of the lovely meal. My companions were visiting from New Zealand and...More

I went for lunch with friends and debated having the Thai Fish cakes due to them being accompanied by chips instead of rice. Anyway against the reservations I had I decided to go with them, I wish I hadn't. They were pleasant fish cakes, but...More

Gorgeous setting for a wedding celebration. The food was delicious, especially the beef wellington and the chocolate torte pudding. The evening hot buffet was very tasty and plentiful. We returned the next day to try the lunch menu. 2 courses for £10 was excellent value...More

So, it's been a long time since I last went to the C&B, mainly due to the fact that I no longer live near this area as work took me North of here. It was on a trip to Yorkshire that we stopped off for...More

Not sure...
Hi, are you serving Christmas day lunch this year? If so, is there space for five adults and can you give me menu and prices please? Thank you, Julie Dawson.

Julie, I'd really give this venue a wide berth this year. We are now into October and they still haven't produced Christmas Day menu. My elderly parents have paid a deposit and they have no idea what the menu is or the... More
This restaurant really worries me. Parents go every year for Christmas Day lunch and always book the following Christmas Day when leaving They have rang several times now to ask about the menu and always been told 'we haven't produced menu yet' A few days ago someone from the restaurant phone father and demanded a deposit for Christmas Day......he still doesn't know the price or menu.....I am fuming that an established restaurant should do this to elderly people. He wouldn't tell me how much deposit he's paid for a meal he has no idea what it consists of. Have checked their website several times and all they are offering is set lunches during December. Why has a menu for Christmas Day not been produced?
