The pub appears to have been recently decorated as it looks very clean and fresh with a modern feel. Four of us dined but the food was only ok, i've had better at other pubs in the area. Service was good. The pub is situated not far off the A1 and would probably make a good base for visiting a... More

Went here with my family for an evening meal. The menu looks very classy and you can tell they are trying to provide more than your average pub food. Unfortunately, despite some excellent dishes, a few fell short. On our table we had some undercooked fish, very fatty meat and some burnt bread. I think if they can iron out... More

The Pack Horse is a great country pub with a classic country pub atmosphere serving a good choice of ale, complemented by a superb restaurant. Too often the restaurant takes over the pub, not at the Pack Horse. The new friendly management team of Linny and and Oli made us feel very welcome. Having enjoyed a good pint of Blacksheep... More

Great country pub given a new lease of life by an enthusiastic new landlady (I say new, she has been in for a few months now). I've not eaten there myself but have heard positive comments from others who have. I use this as my local when I am up holidaying in the village, and come in every night. The... More

We recently called in to this fantastic country pub for a lunch time drink. We were made to feel very welcome by Belinda the landlady and on looking through the menu decided to come back that evening for dinner. The food was delicious using fresh ingredients, some of which were picked especially for our meal from their well stocked vegetable... More

Myself and friends went for a Saturday evening meal. The quality of the food and service was to a high standard, the new chef is most definitely stamping his mark! When we came to pay the bill it was great value for money too. The pub has been newly renovated and it looks great. We had our meal in the... More

While visiting the area, the restaurant was recommended. Apparently a change recently either in ownership or just the chef. Bravo! Especially if other reviews were accurate. I rarely have a 3 course meal, as we shared a bit, I was happy to have had a 5 course meal. From the menu that evening: blue cheese soufflé and Waldorf salad -... More

The Pack Horse is back! Seriously, after a few years of apparent decline, the new regime have literally revitalized the place. The change of ownership has brought new ideas and a total refurbishment that manages to bring everything nicely up to date without losing any of the charm of the place. Situated in the pictureque vilage of Ellingham, this pub... More

We stayed at the Pack Horse Inn for two nights and had a very enjoyable and relaxing stay. The food was delicious and the new manager was very impressive. I would recommend the Pack Horse Inn to anyone, you definitely will not be disappointed.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
We offer bed and breakfast and a one-bed (twin) self catering holiday cottage. Our restaurant offers superb food, wines and ales in this traditional Northumberland village pub. If you enjoy good food at a reasonable price then the Pack Horse Inn is the place to eat. All the food is prepared fresh daily using the best locally sourced ingredients. There is no bought in pre-prepared food served at the Pack Horse, and consequently the menu changes almost on a daily basis to ensure the freshest most interesting seasonal food is always available. ... more   less
