We have popped in a couple of times for food. The staff are very friendly and the service is excellent. The food is amazing. We will definitely be going back! The beer garden is huge for the Summer and even has a park for the kids.

Decided to pop in for dinner on Sunday. We both ordered the chicken dinner. Was expecting something really decent considering we paid over £20 for two dinners and two soft drinks.. the roast potatoes were burnt and the mash was lumpy. The Yorkshire puddings looked lovely but tasted of nothing. The side dish of vegetables consisted of limp cabbage, hard... More

What a great place! Came for a valentines meal and couldn't eat the dessert as we were so full. Such good food and fabulous atmosphere. The staff were fantastic. If you've not been here before you're missing out.

Popped in on some of the good trip advisor reviews and have to say really impressed. Staff are so tentative, great service and lovely food. Well worth a visit and 100% will be back! We came for Sunday dinner and had the cheese board desert! Please visit, food is fresh and definitely homemade! Lovely

I had a booking but rang half an hour before to change the time as we were running late and this wasn't a problem. The food was great and all fresh and homemade.

I visited the Northumbrian Piper at around 2:30pm on Sunday 8th January for a Sunday lunch for 2 people. The staff at the bar served me extremely quickly and the food was served 10-15 minutes after we sat down. It was very hot, very tasty and the whole meal was really lovely. We have been several times before and it's... More

Gradually seen reviews of this place suggesting decline but, as we'd always mainly liked it, came on Bank Holiday. The 1st bad sign was the place was dead. That said the Ice Witch beer from Moorhouse Brewery was great; menu wise there were a few choices on the blackboard in addition to their impossible to read normal menu. We went... More
