The Gun is a great place to stay to get away from it all and the perfect base for visiting all the attractions around, it is an old building and has all the village charms. Liz and Mike are the friendliest hosts and will go that extra mile for there guests. When going to a B & B you want...

This Inn is old fashioned, good friendly and warm. You feel welcome as soon as you walked in and was greeted warmly by the lovely lady. If you want modern and contemporary don't come here. If you want good old fashioned hospitality and good food do! The bed was very comfy and the room basic with all the usual facilities,...

Just happened to be passing this place while looking for somewhere to eat, 2 adults, a 9 year old and 2 dogs. We were made to feel welcome straight away, as were the pooches (a staff and a JR).

Liz and Michael who own the Gun Inn are the most welcoming, friendly people, willing to go out their way for you to enjoy your stay. Located in the countryside of Ridsdale, it's a beautiful location to unwind and relax. Close to the Lakes, Newcastle and the Scottish border, there's lots to do. Would stay again!

Though the Gun Inn is very basic, the hospitality is second to none. great hosts but equally friendly locals. large bedrooms easily accommodate 4 in each. comfy beds. Food simple but well cooked and very tasty, good servings. Just what we needed after a hard day cycling up hill to get there! Many thanks!

It was a beautiful spot and the people made you so welcome. I did not want to leave. I will definitely return. Not far from Keilder forest and Reservoir. Great walking and cycling area or just to relax and take a rest from the madness.

The cottage in which we were staying had a leaflet on the kitchen wall advertising home cooked Sunday lunch at The Gun so we decided to try it. The welcome was warm, the view from the restaurant window is beautiful and the meat was very tender. Well priced too. We would certainly stop here for a meal again when next...
