I had a delicious Bacon and (Doddingtons) cheese panini which I would highly advise trying. The outdoor seating was situated in pleasant enclosed grounds which were ideal for the dog to enjoy without disturbing other diners. There was also a park which kept the younger ones occupied

We came across this Hotel/Restaurant while staying in Northumberland on holiday. It was pouring with rain so we ran from the car to the Pub to a very warm welcome from the Host. They found us seats in the restaurant straight away and it had a nice atmosphere in there. My friend and I both had the same meal which... More

I stayed here once before and it was a disaster , but three years down the line I thought I would give it another go . Staff were very friendly and food was ok for some of us but poor for others . Entertainment at night was excellent . Breakfast was supposed to be at 08:00 hrs but we never... More

We came across this hotel whilst doing our usual 'let's go where the weather is good and book on the off-chance' type of trips. What lovely, warm welcoming staff, so laid back but quietly efficient. They found us a room, "no bother!" Can we have an evening meal? "No bother!" Can we stay a litle longer? "No bother!" To be... More

I used the Cottage Inn whilst walking the Northumberland Coastal Path. The room was clean, comfortable and quiet for sleeping. The staff were efficient and friendly. I found both meals, dinner and breakfast, extremely tasty and the helpings to say the least were generous. I would recommend anyone visiting the area to stay here.

Stayed for one night, the room was superficially clean... Until we looked in the toilet. Won't go into details... But it hadn't been cleaned. It's a quiet location with a big garden and children's play area. The bar seems to be run mainly for the bar staff. One of the bar staff was extremely drunk by the time we went... More

We visited this pub again in June 2015 having stayed last year in June 2014 on both occasions for 5 nights. The food was fine albeit we always ate in the evening and we were made very welcome as was our Labrador. The room was clean and comfortable
