We decided to try the Dorset for a meal having read the past reviews and the fact it is relatively local. The restaurant itself is well presented with a comfortable atmosphere. Upon arrival we were shown to our table and the service throughout the night was friendly and prompt, but without being pushy. There was a decent selection of food... More

Comfortable b&b above a pub and restaurant. The locals in the pub were really friendly and gave us information about our trip. The owner was lovely and gave us advice and help for the rest of our break (we walked the Hadrian's wall path). The room was comfortable and the restaurant was great value. It is close to the start... More

I stayed in the family room of the Dorset arms for 2 nights with my wife and grandson. We all thoroughly enjoyed our stay and were made to feel very welcome by the staff and locals. The rooms were very clean and excellent value, breakfast again was of a high standard and it seemed nothing was too much trouble. Overall... More

We have had Sunday lunch here on several occasions and each time has been fantastic. Whether the Carvery or off the Menu is he food has been delicious. The beer garden is great with a few treats for children. If it gets more popular they may have to take bookings for lunch!

Clean room and facilities, power shower was therapeutic, Staff were great, smiley and very helpful, had a great sleep and breakfast. The only thing i can grumble about was a squeaky bar door below our room (1), but i forgot to inform the manager of this. Location wise, yes the Hotel is on an estate, but neighbours were very friendly... More

Arriving at five thirty , we were pleasantly surprised the £4.95 four course special was still available from twelve until six pm. We both chose potato skins with a... More

Went to Newcastle on Satyrday 11th April for horse racing. Choose Dorset Arms as it looked central for train station and race course. Took number 1 bus (£3.80 for day ticket)from city which dropped us off in Wallsend. 10 minute walk to Dorset Arms from bus stop. Checking in really easy and staff very pleasant.
