The worst pub Sunday lunch i have had in a long time. It looked unappetizing and it was, small portions, tasteless, wouldn’t go back or recommend it. Possibly as menu too big and large restaurant so somethings got to go and its the food.

My friend and I ate at the Keelmans recently and it was very unimpressive! Both our meals were poorly presented, even for an average pub lunch, and her ham and my beef were both tasteless and chewy. The head service guy was also more than a little brusque in his manner. We won't be returning.

the room is quite large and has all amenities, staff is friendly but the mattress and pillows are kind of hard. The food at the pub is very good with many choices. If you drive, parking is easy on site. Breakfast was complete and well done.

We live locally, and have visited the Keelman's Lodge many times for drinks and meals. It's a lovely stone building with a brewery attached, in it's own grounds overlooking the rural part of the river Tyne so it has an idyllic setting. The Keelman has a separate bar and serves a good selection of ales from it's own Big Lamp... More

We walked Hadrians Wall in beautiful sunshine carrying all our camping equipment. Foot sore and weary we arrived late on Friday night to a warm welcome comfortable accommodation and good food. Staff were helpful, nothing was too much trouble. The place had a real buzz and was clearly patronised by local people too. A great stop and set us up... More

Stayed here as our first stop on our East-to-West Hadrian's Wall walk. Close to the path (150m?). What a welcome stop after the walk to be greeted by a pub with so many great ales brewed onsite. Our room was spacious and clean but as others have noted could use some updated decor. It reminded me of a dated motel,... More
