This is a very welcoming family pub where nothing is too much trouble, Mum cooks excellent meals, Dad serves and gives excellent walking route advice, Grandma keeps the hens that lay the fresh eggs. The room was comfortable and clean and overlooking the garden - we enjoyed the birdfeeders and watching the hedgehog pick up the scraps under the tables.... More

The Rose and Thistle is a lovely friendly inn located in an absolutely stunning area of the Northumberland national park. We arrived mid-afternoon and took a walk for a couple of hours to the nearby village of Harbottle and its ruined castle. We received a warm welcome from Jane, the landlady, who was also very helpful in giving us tips... More

We were acting as the support vehicle for our son and his wife, who were cycling from Berwick-upon-Tweed to Appleby-in-Westmorland (route 68), and this was one of our overnight stops. The welcome we received could not be bettered, the cycles were safely locked away in a garage, and we then enjoyed an excellent pub meal. The bed and breakfast clients... More

Arrived at the Rose & Thistle Inn have ridden 54 miles on tough MTB routes to be greeted by the owners Jane & Gareth. They were amazing, the food and accommodation is top notch. This is a must visit, we will definitely be back on a regular basis, David, Paul & Neil.

We spent the weekend at Hosedon House and found everything about the accommodation fantastic. The Rose and Thistle is a very friendly and very good pub. There is also some great walking straight out of the front door. All in all, one of the best family weekends we have had. We certainly intend to return.

We stayed one night when walking the Inn Way. Great pub, food and hospitality. Comfortable rooms with separate sitting room, with its own fire, for guests where breakfast is served. Recommended for walkers and families.
