I stayed for B&B on August 15 and also had an evening meal. The choice on the menu is astonishing. My meal was cooked to perfection, as was the breakfast in the morning. Others have commented on the view from the hotel, and I can only agree. The staff were very polite and helpful, and despite the restaurant being fully... More

We had a lovely stay here, the restaurant was excellent and the breakfast set you up for the day. Staff are very friendly and helpful. The only down side to the hotel is that there is no lounge area, it would have been nice to sit comfortably after the meal with friends but there was no facility. The bar area... More

When we booked this hotel we expected "en-suite" to include a shower but were disappointed to find upon being shown to our room that the electric shower was not working so it was bath only. The hotel needs to get this fixed as it will put people off from returning or booking in the first place. The bathroom also proved... More

Friendly staff, views at the back of this pub / restaurant, as other reviewers have said are stunning. My steak and mushroom pie was lovely, as was the gravy, chips and veg, my partner's chicken was a little over-done and the Mexican chilli style sauce was a little like something bought in ? Very busy, good atmosphere, nice location overall.

Just spent 5 nights at hotel and had a great time. Room spotless with wonderful view of hills. A very warm welcome from all. Breakfast sets you up for the day - chef doesn't believe in small portions. Recommend the evening meals just starve yourself before you go - big portions and worth every penny. Definitely going back again when... More

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.
