What a friendly crowd, from the owners to the punters! In fact it was a challenge to stop them chatting and get our order in! When we did the food and drink was all excellent and thoughtfully served, as we were weary walkers! The fayre was much better than standard pub grub with a really good choice without being tiny...

Every so often you find a gem of a place. This is one. Recommended by a passer by on day one of the walk when we said we were staying over at Heddon on the wall on day one. We reserved a table but turned up an hour early, and the friendly staff seated us immediately. We chose casual rather... More

HI Gaz Thanks for leaving your comments. We don't want anyone to leave unhappy and want to be better for our guests. Roast chicken dinner is not on our regular Sunday menu, our roasts include beef, pork and turkey.

Our experience visiting this pub was great. We arranged to meet friend there. We were made to feel very welcome. The hospitality we received was first class by all. Dogs are also welcome.

We visited here with our 2 young boys. Friendly staff, relaxing atmosphere and nice and clean! Food was great, although could have fancied a bit more veg but no complaints! Went for the chicken, may try the beef next time! 😛 Price not too bad either. Would definitely recommend!
