Terrifically welcoming staff with great knowledge of the ales on offer - insisting on me tasting the range. Great veggie options on sandwiches. Dog friendly and a cosy atmosphere. Friendly and chatty clientele too. A great lunchtime experience.

Quirky restaurant in the beautiful town of Hexham.Sunday lunch was super. Piping hot , freshly prepared vegetables and succulent lamb. Only reason it didn't get a 5 was because I could have really had a few more vegetables. Well worth a visit. Reasonably priced, around...More

A contemporary update of the great British pub in a stunning, grade II listed building in the heart of the historic market town of Hexham, Northumberland. We specialise in doing things right-entirely homemade food, both classics & seasonal creations, beautifully kept local cask ales, artisan coffee, friendly service, roaring log-burners & pretty much anything else you would want from a great local, independent pub.
