I have given one star but our meal didn't really deserve one star. Met up with friends for dinner my husband and I both had smoked kippers and new potatoes to start, the kipper was only the size of your little finger, if that, and tasted awful. My Husband then had sirloin steak with chips, steak was o.k but the... More

I won't keep you in suspense. The pigeon and venison pie from the specials board was simply outstanding, complementing a couple of pints of Black Sheep Ale. Frankly, after that you wouldn't mind where you slept, but the rooms are clean and comfortable with decent shower power and the staff are friendly. So yes, would definitely return. P.S the breakfast... More

After a lovely morning and lunch in Alnwick, we made our way to the Cook and Barker. After booking in with a very pleasant girl, we went to our room. Once inside we were almost knocked out by the heat blasting from the radiator! My husband went to turn down the thermostat, only to find it had snapped off and... More

Have eaten here a few times before and it's always been very good, however this visit left me disappointed. The scallops in the starter were tiny and a bit gritty in places, the black pudding was too little and the pea purée negligible. The roast partridge main was overcooked which made it a bit chewy. Maybe I'll stick to the... More

My wife and I enjoyed a delicious meal at this pleasant country pub. The menu had a good mix of choices and the portions were ample. My wife cannot have dairy and the chef was willing to adjust accordingly. Service was excellent and a couple of nice local ales on draught too. Worth a visit.

Dined last night and highly recommend the Xmas Fayre on offer. The food was superb, very tasty and well presented. The restaurant & bar was cosy with lovely Christmas decorations. Our party of four thoroughly enjoyed our evening. Can't praise it enough! Very good value for money.

Booked in for lunch on recommendation by family member. It was a really good, positive experience. The food was wonderful and beautifully presented. The staff were friendly and attentive without being overfamiliar or intrusive.

These early bird deals are well worth a try, cracking offers and the choice is unbelievable, there are nice choices of ales available, the service is always first class. I've been coming to this bar since the late 70's and its always a pleasure, I can remember when the jukebox was in the fire place beside the bar
