My partner, dog and I stayed for one night on a Groupon deal and so payed £60 in for bed and breakfast. On check in the member of staff said our room wasn't ready and seemed annoyed that we were there. Our bed was very comfortable but we couldn't enjoy it as we were above the kitchens which were really... More

What a delightful inn situated in a beautiful part of the country. We received a very warm welcome when we arrived and a complimentary drink as part of the deal. We had a lovely meal sat in front of a roaring log fire and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. All in all a lovely place to stay and have no hesitation in... More

A fine country inn. They have an amazing chef who delivers food of a very high standard. All the staff were extremely polite, courteous and welcoming. Our room was warm and cosy even though it was freezing outside. All in all it's a great place to spend a few days relaxing and enjoying the Northumbrian countryside while absorbing the history...

Loved everything. The staff were very friendly, the room was immaculate with all the trimmings, including the Prosecco. The bar had a roaring fire, with lovely background music. There was a pool table. We were the only two in the restaurant but it did not feel lonely the atmosphere in the whole of the place is lovely. The dinner was... More

Very pleasant stay. Thank you. Friendly and welcoming staff. Very good evening meal, especially the ribeye steak which really hit the spot:) We really enjoyed our weekend break, including our Lurcher Dexter, who didn't want to leave. Excellent value, highly recommended. We will stay there again when in the area.

My husband and I stopped in for a light lunch on the way back from the lake district a few weeks ago and decided to take a different route via Alston instead of the main road. It was a lovely stop to break up our journey! There was a lovely young girl behind the bar called Joanna who was very... More

We stayed on a groupon 2 night deal, with breakfast both days included. This was excellent value, especially with the chilled bottle of prosecco waiting for us in our room! The atmosphere in the pub was lovely and cosy around the real fire and the staff were welcoming and friendly. The room was well presented and clean with one of... More
