Visited as a family of 4 in between Christmas and new year. The food was gorgeous, great quality and cooked to perfection. Had numerous visits to the garden house and the food and service has never faulted. Really friendly staff, always a warm welcome.

We popped in to the Garden House for a meal with my husband, children and Father (who is a very fussy eater). 3 of us had the Pepper Steak which was cooked to perfection, one Son had the chicken burger and the other had the venison stew. The venison stew was apparently to die for. Dad opted for the fish... More

Stayed here for one night. Room was good heating was playing up but they had supplied electric heaters which were more than adequate. Friendly staff. Bar area was great as was the food . Not a massive choice (which is a good move) but food was brilliant & plentiful. Continental breakfast was great also . Would stay again definitely

The first of our party headed to the pub at 1500 and began spending money. Others then joined and our party of 10 ordered some food. We were having a lovely time until 1900 when the barmaid came and informed us we needed to be put by 2000. Upon questioning she said she had placed a sign on the table... More

Was a bit worried when I realised my friend had booked us into an inn rather than an hotel. However, we had a lovely room with crisp fresh linen, plenty of space in the room and everything we needed. Heating was very good, easy to control. A large bathroom was a plus, even if the shower was a bit dated.... More

I really wanted to like this place. The pub downstairs was lovely. The food in the bar was fantastic and the staff behind the bar were lovely. The room however.... not so good. The shower was controlled via the bath taps which proved an issue with pressure and temperature. I've not seen anything like that since my Nan's house in... More

We recently spent one night here meeting family – we travelled south and they travelled north!! We had a very large and airy room with a big bathroom but their room was smaller with a tiny shower room. The beds were lovely and comfortable with crisp bedding. The bar area was very busy but cosy with a lovely atmosphere. The... More

Spent two nights here and found the hotel to be comfortable and very clean. Our room was large and nicely decorated. The owner was very friendly and we enjoyed a meal in the bar on our first evening which was very good. The bar and lounge area are lovely and cosy especially after a day of sight seeing. The only...

Booked in for one night with friends for watching World Cup rugby match in Newcastle. First impressions were good, car park a little small but we got in. Friendly looking bar though didn't get chance to try it. Room was spacious with a large bathroom. Only 10 minute walk to train station and city centre. Bed was comfortable and although... More
