Having spent some time in the area over the years, the Rose & Thistle always offers all guests a warm and friendly welcome. I recently celebrated my 60th birthday there and a grand time was had by all. The food is always first class and there is always a quality Real Ale on tap. If you are ever in the... More

a truly delightful alwinton inn. the food was delicious and reasonably priced, the accommodation was clean and comfortable with every amenity and the landlord and his family were extremely helpful in every way. I would most definitely recommend this lovely little inn with its beautiful gardens, good food and well stocked bar .. an absolute joy to stay there. x

I've popped in to the Rose & Thistle on several occasions to have a pint at the end of a walk but never have I stayed there before, what a treat!!! All 3 rooms are furnished in lovely rustic style, we had the double room and it was great, comfortable mattress, no rolling into the middle, the best shower I... More

My son recently moved to Alwinton and since that time the Rose and Thistle has been our first choice venue for a number of family get togethers. There is always a friendly welcome and the food is excellent - home cooking at it's best - a great choice for Sunday lunch. Tender meat and perfectly cooked vegetables followed by apple... More

Arrived filthy, sweaty and a little weary after a long day walking over the Cheviots as part of the Northumberland Inn Way to be greeted by a wonderful beer garden with the most amazing views of the surrounding countryside, basking in the afternoon sunshine and a friendly, convivial landlord who welcomed us with open arms. Both our expectations were surpassed... More

After a long ramble in the Nothumberland national park this was just the end station we needed. A warm welcome, good menue and comfortable rooms after a long walk. Wonderful garden and beatuful location. A very nice place indeed. This is what a pub in the countryside is all about. Recomended!

On a damp Northumberland Spring bank Holiday, with a hungry wife and her mum we dropped into the Rose and Thistle for lunch. Lots on the menu to choose from and half portions should you not want a big meal midday, Real ale and dry cider on draught(wife can't stand the sweet and trendy stuff). Comfortable lounge and great service... More

Called into the pub on a walking trip and instantly felt at home. This is a 'Country Pub' in the true sense of the word. The main bar is a big comfortable room where children are welcome until 9.30pm, and the seating is plentiful; there's also pool table for the athletically inclined. No fake horse brasses or boring hunting prints... More
