The meal was okay but not great. The dining room at our hotel was closed and this was an alternate choice for dinner.

I had the fish cakes with chunky chips and they were beautiful. Nicely presented, tasted great and more chips than I could eat! I had a couple of drinks - tea and sparkling water and the bill was less than £15. I felt comfortable eating alone as a single female traveller and the staff went out of their way to... More

Called in for mid-week lunch. Menu is not very veggie friendly but helpful staff tried hard to find something for a vegan and provided an imaginative mixed salad (definitely not your average pub salad!) Well presented.

How to start, do I begin with the good or the bad. I think I'll start with the good. This is a complicated establishment offering fabulous food, a strong menu, reasonable ale, a wide selection of spirits, accomodation, it is well liked by locals and visitors, some great service and a friendly welcome. Now for the bad, the toilets are... More

Both had pies, they were fantastic. Food all prepared fresh and you can tell. If we lived in the area this would be my favourite place to eat

Food is great-- my wife had a bacon and brie burger that was quite generous, the starters were tasty and the brew and cider selection was great. This area is central to Hadrian's Wall's best hiking and attractions, that this would be a great place to end a day. I'd like to go back and try more items.

My partner and I dined here on two consecutive nights. We returned for the second night because we'd enjoyed our food on the first night and whilst the atmosphere was a little noisy it was tolerable. Our second visit was tortuous. The noise level from other groups was so bad it was impossible to have a proper conversation. The atmosphere... More
