The restaurant was very busy and we were lucky to get a table even at 6.30pm, the food was though delicious and reasonably priced. My Son is 7 and ordered fish and chips, I'm always heartened when the fish is handmade and not... More

Just returned from a 2 night stay via buyagift. On arrival we were greeted by a very cheery young man who showed us to our room, in fact without exception all the staff were friendly, pleasant and helpful. Our room, although dated, was a good size and clean with a comfy bed. Good choice of hot breakfast and the cold... More

I was part of a 7 man group of walkers of mature years who visit a different part of the UK every summer for a 6 day hiking holiday, in former years following a linear path but now happy to enjoy the comforts of a one centre stay. We chose Northumberland as a place little known to us and Rothbury... More

This was our third trip to lovely Rothbury but our first stay at the Queens Head, which we chose through a Living Social deal. Staff are excellent, all very friendly and helpful and the restaurant worth a visit ( we ate on both nights). Good selection on the menu and local produce on a specials board all presented well, tasted... More

We stayed here as part of a group touring the area and found the restaurant quite good and our room acceptable. The room was spare at best but clean and well heated in a cool season. Nothing fancy, but convenient for our purposes, and the staff was friendly and professional.

Having received a gift voucher for a two night National Park stay we chose the Queens Head in Rothbury to redeem the voucher. Couldn't be more pleased. A very warm welcome on arrival by staff and locals as well, a comfy bed and good food. The views from the bedroom window were lovely. Rothbury is a beautiful village very close... More

I stayed for one night over the bank holiday weekend, received a warm welcome and the room was large and comfortable. I didn't have any food, but did have a very comfortable night's sleep. I felt the stay was good value for money and I would stay again.
