We stayed here on our second night of our Hadrian's Wall Walk Challenge. Rooms were away from the main lodge but were large, clean and fairly comfortable although a little dated. It also housed a bath which was very welcome after an 11 mile walk that day to soak our weary joints. Beds were pretty comfortable and plenty of room... More

I stayed here during the week whilst working in the area. Rooms are comfortable and quiet and a short distance away is a walk along the Tyne. Plenty of tea, coffee, biscuits and toiletries. Only minor gripes were small TV and kettle not emptied after room servicing. Microbrewery beer is excellent and cheap and restaurant service and food were good.... More

This was a family pub.Now it has been taken over by 'the locals' called The Furniture even by some of the restaurant staff. Typical when the management do not maintain their presence and control over the regular drinkers. Bad language and having to walk through a haze of cigarette smoke at the door is bad enough.Talk about Passive Smoking. These... More

Excellent place on edge of country park about 10 mins from Newcastle city centre. Room was comfortable and very spacious. As ever, the beer was perfect (brewery on site - Big Lamp). Only flaw to prevent a 5-star - B&B customers are charged £7.95 for breakfast, however non-stayers can get this for £5.55. Still recommend it highly.

Walking westward from Wallsend this was our first stop for the night. And we would pick it again: lovely place, good room, great surroundings, very friendly staff,.good value for money. Only the kitchen is extremely English: generous in chips, meat, sweets and calories, but not so in vegetables, with few vegy options. If only they could add some vegy salands... More

This is an excellent place to stop and rest your weary feet if you are walking Hadrian's Wall Path. The shower refreshes parts that other showers can't reach and the old world buildings have a real charm. Rooms are clean and comfortable and the food is good. Would highly recomend

These folks bend over backwards to please you and get what you want. I'm very particular about what I eat - and they made arrangements to suit my needs. The place was crowded - lots of people really enjoy the place - dogs are most welcome and there's a free Wi-Fi. The room was VERY nice - such small touches... More

I have visited many, many times - it has never been a let down. Food is great, staff excellent, choice of beer from the brewery a real boon!! Pub small and quaint, restaurant very comfortable - with conservatory. Large, free parking, kids play area and large beer garden. You can't go wrong!!

Stayed the night here for a big family get together. New Baby and a Birthday! Have been for meals and drinks when we lived in the North East, pleasant surprise to find we could have B & B. We had a room in a house in the carpark. Sounds strange, but it was very comfortable and clean. TV was very... More

We stayed here on our hike of Hadrian's Wall this past fall. We got in after dark and they gave us our room key and set dinner reservations for an hour later so we had time to shower and get all the mud of us. Our room over in the cottage wasn't large, but was alright and was clean and... More
