We didn't stay here but just saw it on our travels, when we were getting hungry. Very glad we did! Very nice bar meals, freshly prepared and reasonably priced. The setting is cosy complete with open fire. So much nicer than a chain pub with pre-prepared food.

Lovely homely and friendly pub. Enjoyed the local community spirit. Cosy log fire, great value food and accommodation, would like to return. Our 3 day break was not enough to see and do everything we would like after having a taster before Christmas. Met up with friends who had a 2 night stay. Weather was VERY wet but it didn;t... More

My wife and I stayed at the Elks Head as a prelude to a days shooting on the Whitfield estate. The staff were kind and helpfull and nothing was too much trouble. The evening meal was worthy of a much more spectacular venue and was simply excellent and breakfast was wholesome and tasty. All in all it was a wonderful... More

This is a typically English country inn at the side of one of the UKs most scenic drives. The drive there is itself worth the visit. The staff throughout were very friendly and helpful. The bedrooms are small but clean and well equipped. Whilst our bedroom (9) view was poor, it was made up by the wonderful river view from... More

Great location by the river near Hadrian's Wall. Friendly team who run a cosy pub and hotel. Menu had plenty to choose from and all the meals were a great success - black pudding at breakfast etc! Rooms all good - best are those in the new wing - recommend room 10!

We recently found this offer on Groupon so not that sure what to expect. What a charming place surrounded by breathtaking countryside. On arrival we were greeted by warm and friendly staff who showed us to our room which was very clean and cozy with everything on hand to make you feel at home. After unpacking we decided to go...

Visited with other family members recently on way home from holiday. What a find! Good selection of real ales on the bar, both local and national. Pleasant surroundings both inside and out, particularly on a sunny day by the river. Varied menu appealing to all ages with 'daily specials' on the board as well. When the food arrived it was...
