A very popular pub in the centre of Haltwhistle, recommended by our B & B. It is not a big pub and the first night we went it was so crowded we had to go elsewhere. We got there earlier the next time and were more successful. There is a good and varied menu, the food is pub grub at... More

We visited this pub as it was dog friendly. We ordered a sunday roast. The food was delicious. The real bonus was that our dog was allowed to sit inside with us.

The owner and staff are lovely, the food is proper pub grub, but definitely better than your average pub food! Cosy, old fashioned English pub in a central location to the town, with a variety of local ales on offer. Perfect place to spend a raining Northumberland evening!
