Not much to see or do in Brampton, its a small place with little choice of eating places. Two hotels/pubs and a pasta restaurant. Only suitable as s base for touring. The White Lion is clean, freindly and welcoming.

Attracted by homemade food sign and wasn't disappointed. Chose cheese and leek frittata which was a refreshing item to see on a pub menu. Everything was homemade and superbly presented. Light delicious frittata, creamy homemade coleslaw and crispy fresh sale. My husband's curry received top marks as did my fussy son's scampi and (homemade chips) yes the pub is a... More

We found this a little disappointing. The stand in managers are trying really hard. But the building really needs completely refurbishing. The food was adequate but not great. They had a couple of nice real ales on and there is good free wi-fi. There was a big dog laying in the restaurant area. But he was very hold and quite... More

However the rooms were clean,the bed was clean and comfortable and we had clean towels every day. We also had tv and tea making facilities. On the downside some... More

We used this as a base for a short walking tour of Hadrian's Wall; the rooms were basic and quite small - rather in need of some refurbishment , but were clean and tidy. The staff were attentive and looked after us well. The breakfasts were very good with plentiful juice, tea and coffee and you could choose whatever you... More

Well I’m not going to deny that the accommodation is basic and the place is certainly in need of a refurbishment but overall we had a great stay. Some of the room's were quite small but they were clean, the towels were changed without us having to ask and they were all en-suite. There was a TV with freeview in... More

We stayed here as part of our route along Hadrian's wall, booked via Sherpa Vans, so we had not read any of the reviews and now wish we had. It is the most awful place. A pub hotel, it smelt of cooking fat. The rooms are small, but also smelt of damp, the rooms looked like they had never been... More

I had booked a double room but got a twin room, the girl said that there were no other rooms available but it transpired that there was only one other guest in the hotel. The room looked as if the door had been forced recently, and there was a very strange arrangement where the beds seemed to be sitting on... More
