So I spent 20 minutes typing a small novel to which the review then didn't upload. So here in a nutshell is the review for the newly named 'arrogant inn' Had food on the wednesday. No welcome from anyone and asking for a table for 5 sent one lady into panic mode and another to continue to suck her imaginary... More

Just travelling past on way to Dundee. Decided to stop for a break, then decided to stop for the night. Fully expected it to be like "The Slaughtered Lamb", but no, it wasn't. Staff were very helpful and amenable. Room was clean and bright. Pretty much a pub with rooms, but somehow so much more than that. Food good, well... More

This is a hotel situated 5 miles from the picturesque village of Otterburn. This is effectively a pub with rooms. The rooms are ok size, clean but quite cheap furnishings and lack of water pressure in the shower make this a vey average hotel. You do get free Wi-Fi, TV but I stayed for two nights and did not receive... More

Great centre for visiting Northumberland and Scottish Borders. Spotlessly clean, well-appointed room and great views. Very hospitable hosts and excellent food at a very reasonable price and a good choice. Can't recommend highly enough and will definitely return.

What a cracking find the place was. 3 of us on a biking tour stayed one night. It was a bit cheaper and smaller than the other places we'd booked so wasn't expecting anything too flash……. we were fabulously proved wrong. It's a cracking little pub with very friendly staff….. smallish sized bar, but decent lounge for dining. It's obviously... More

I was recommended this place by the locals in Otterburn, just down the road. I set off to find it, drove straight past because I was looking for a pub sign with 'The First and Last' on it. Thankfully I was redirected. We thought it was closed because the doors were closed. When the wind blew we realised why!!! Anyway,... More

Dear blue01York, Thank you for taking the time to write your review, I’m glad you found us eventually. The locals do refer to us as the First & Last and we used to have a sign indicating we were the first and last, maybe we need to reinstate it! We do have to close the doors during high winds, as...

Very good pub food.We came here at the recommendation of our b&b owners,for which we're very grateful. Were slightly concerned at what the prices may have been like given the lack of options for food in the area,but these were pretty reasonable. Both myself and my partner had two courses which we thoroughly enjoyed,and we would certainly return if we... More
