I travel from the English midlands to Scotland fairly regularly and the A68 is my preferred route; an interesting drive with stunning scenery. The Redesdale Arms is a must for travellers on this road. I try and stop whenever I pass; for a coffee, or a meal or - preferably - overnight. One is assured of a warm welcome from... More

We often visit this place on our way up the a68, brilliant food although the menu has changed a wee bit since we last visited. steaks are to die for as are the chips - proper home cooked food. creme brûlée was magical, also seen a sticky toffee go past and that smelt devine. reasonable prices.

The Redesdale Arms is located on a great spot along the A68 surrounded by the beautiful, rural landscape that is the Northumberland National Park. The staff were polite and friendly. Good pub grub and ambiance. Fast Wi-Fi. Seriously considering going there again for a Dark Sky event.

We were travelling back from Edinburgh via the beautiful A68 and by chance stopped at this restaurant. We had a lovely lunch at a reasonable price. It also has a stunning view of the countryside just over the road. We didn't have time but I imagine there are some fantastic walks.

Ate at the hotel's restaurant on the way back from a long business trip in the Middle East, having just landed at Newcastle Airport, and returning to Scotland along the A68. It is tucked away, just between Rochester and Otterburn but is well worth a visit. Great setting, good food and all at a reasonable price. I had the roast... More

I booked a weekend break after receiving an email from northumberlandtorism.co.uk advertising a dark sky event and timed the visit to coincide with the geminids meteor shower. We were not disappointed, I can honestly say I have never seen so many stars in the night sky as that weekend, and we were treated to a celestial firework display I will... More
