Another delicious Sunday lunch at The Shepherds' Rest today. The welcome is always friendly; hence we keep coming back. It is well worth a visit, for an excellent Sunday carvery, to this character pub.

I visited the pub and restaurant for one of their much fabled Sunday lunches. Having heard good things we headed along and walking in the door it felt like it was 1977 again. We were seated in the bar which was about half full and could see a temporary carvery setup with pans full of veg and a roast side... More

A cosy, real-fire end to a soggy Northumberland August day. Great local music, good beer, fantastic company. But the real entertainment is standing station behind the bar. Every pint comes with a dry take on just about every aspect of modern life. Bob is a Northumbrian treasure, if not a national one. Oh, and he can't half cook, too. Sincere... More

Home from home - well without any of us doing the hard work. We stayed with our friends for 3 nights week commencing 19 September 2011 and had a fantastic time. Bob is the perfect host, he is funny, entertaining, a good cook and very welcoming in his homely inn. There's a real nice atmosphere to the place and it's... More

We have just got back from a 2 night break at the Sheperds Rest with our 2 young children and we will definitely be heading there again, we were made to feel very at home the moment we arrived. Bobs meals are brilliant, the children were very well catered for and me and my husband were absolutely stuffed with the... More

We stayed for 2 nights last week for £75.00 per night for the two of us and that included breakfast & dinner!. We had a lovely ensuite room and the food was great, all prepared by our host Bob. Breakfast certainly set us up for the day. We spent our evenings in the bar clutching our sides with laughter after... More

I stayed at The Shepherd's Rest throughout July and a little of August, and have found it to be an exeptional establishment, like a home away from home. The room was always immaculate, the food second to none, and Bob was always there with a warm greeting as soon as I stepped through the door. I'd recommend a stay here... More
