I stayed here the night of my wedding (up at Kirkley Hall) and I can not pick a fault. The guests filled every room and every single person said how good the rooms were and how welcome they felt. They all couldn't believe the value of what they paid for what they got! The breakfast was awesome and they easily... More

Stayed on a Saturday night in June with my wife. We were greeted at the bar reception by a very polite and helpful lady who showed us to our room. The room was spotlessly clean.The rooms are adjacent to the pub with their own carpark. Only down side there was a bit of noise at closing time but that only... More

I stayed at the Diamond on Saturday night with two friends as part of a coast to coast cycle ride. The total price was £85 B&B, we had a good standard triple room separate to the main hotel. The room was was spotlessly clean and our bikes had their own room - we could have stayed in that room but... More

I've been fortunate enough to eat here on several occasions, often with my kids (4 and6). Each time we have been really impressed with both the food and the service. The kids are always made very welcome and the atmosphere is very relaxed. The Sunday lunches are great for both quality and value. Definitely worth a visit.

My husband and myself were fortunate to win a 3 course Sunday lunch at The Diamond Inn Ponteland. Our starter was perfection. Perfect caramelised red onion and goats cheese tart with peashoots. Fresh and delicious. Our mains were incredible. To sample all the vegetables, crispy huge Yorkshire puds and vegetable gravy was such a joy/relief. My husband and I have... More

stayed here again and the chef had changed giving the food a different style, very unusual for a pub bar/hotel. breakfast served by friendly staff and enough to set you up for the day. good selection of beers and wines and probably the cheapest bar in the village. close to Newcastle airport and plenty of sites to see close by....
