The accommodation is in 2 cottages adjacent to the Inn. One cottage is a 2-bedroomed self-catering unit, whilst the second cottage is 2 double & 1 single rooms, all en-suite. We took 2 rooms in the latter, staying 2 very comfortable nights. On entering, you are greeted with a stone floor leading to a vestible area with an old fireplace... More

We called into the Punch Bowl as we were driving out of Consett and towards Hadrian's Wall but the weather wasn't good so we stopped for a spot of lunch! We were welcomed warmly by the staff and shown the menu and the specials boards and we quickly chose a couple of mains to have. I went for the turkey,... More

The Sunday lunch menu gave a choice Pork, Beef or Lamb, they dont serve the usual menu on a Sunday which is a shame. The lunch was nice, the meat well cooked, I had pork with crackling and stuffing, and the vedge was lovely, especially the creamed leeks, but the plate wasnt deserving of the £10.99 price tag, in fact...

We've been here a few times and every time, the service, food and general ambience is always top notch. Try the garlic and blue cheese mushrooms or/and the steak and ale pie. All excellent home cooked pub food. Set in the beautiful Northumberland countryside, what more could you ask ?

Lovely atmosphere country pub. A great find and really high quality food. The mushroom starter was excellent and the extensive range of main courses was a delight. The speciality pies were really tasty and the mince/dumplings was a treat. There were 8 of us and the service was excellent. The pub is dog friendly and has a really relaxed feel.... More

We ate at The Punch Bowl last Saturday night as a group of 8 celebrating a birthday whilst staying down the road at one of the Ruffside cottages (Birchinlee). The food was excellent and there was a really wide range of specials - some really interesting dishes! We all really enjoyed the food - portions were pretty large and some... More

When visiting family in the area, I always make a point of visiting this lovely pub. It is a nice drive into the countryside and Edmundbyers is a pleasant little village. The pub has character and we have always had a friendly welcome from the mostly young staff. The pub menus are written on 3 blackboards placed around the bar.... More
