I stayed here for one night, the staff were friendly and chatty which was nice as I was travelling alone, the view from my room was stunning, the room was spacious and comfortable, the only small moan is that the shower in the bathroom didn't work, however this would not stop me stopping here again. Food was great, including the... More

A chance visit to the Three Wheat Heads last year was so delightful that we chose to spend a couple of nights there this year and we thoroughly enjoyed the experience. A very warm welcome awaited us and our immaculately clean well-appointed room had the delightful view across the valley which had enhanced our visit to the restaurant last year.... More

Our summer stay in Thropton confirmed our view. The rooms are fine, the service ideal and the views are exceptional. Meals are great - we enjoyed two breakfasts and one evening dinner, and no complaints at all. Indeed the quality was beyond expectation.

My wife and I ordered lamb cutlets that were supposedly from a spring lamb... well which spring? What we were served was chops from an old sheep thick with fat, big thick mature bones and extremely tough. It was disgusting! As a butcher for over 50 years I know meat from an old beast when I see it. However the... More

Stayed for 2 nights. Room excellent, food good and served in nice bar area (as our Irish Setter was with us - who was made very welcome). Staff very friendly. Excellent location for us to visit Northumberland for first time.

This was a very enjoyable stay in a rural pub/hotel in the Rothbury Hills/ Simonside Hills. The views from the garden are excellent and the staff were very attentive to the needs of our group. Breakfast service was a great mixture of good English Breakfast food and a touch of 'School Dinners' for those who might have experienced the specialist... More

Food was delicious, 9+ out of 10. Service great, Our room No. 5 was clean and the bed comfy. Only downside was the en-suite. Shower door needs changing, the shower switch needs looking at. The hand basin was loose, took 4 to 5 mins for hot water to come through, and 1 night and in the morning no hot water... More

My wife and I went here for a meal on a recommendation from the manager of our holiday rental. The restaurant has a brilliant view over the valley and the staff could not have been more helpful. The food was quite simply fantastic. The menu is fairly extensive and caters for all tastes. The staff were very helpful in explaining... More

Sad circumstances led to a group of us holding a 'wake' for a departed friend at the Three Wheat Heads last week. One friend arranged a full (14 piece) Pipe Band to play for a couple of hours in the inn's garden. Another arranged with the hotel to provide (very good) buffet food outdoors for an uncertain number of people.... More

Lovely, clean, well-decorated and furnished room in an old inn with stunning views over the hills. Breakfasts were great and evening meals quirky but tasty. Owner and staff all very friendly though, like other places we ate locally, they must struggle to find young wait staff who really know what they're doing. Deeply disappointed to find no shower in the... More
