How refreshing. A real honest to goodness pub with a fabulous restaurant that does not break the bank. All this in the quaint town of Corbridge on a street right out of a Dickens novel.

Popped in on the off chance for lunch with family after a wander round Corbridge, the steak was fantastic and the others liked their food. Reasonably priced and fairly quick service also.

Enjoyed a family meal for six, the food was delicious, presentation good & the staff friendly & pleasant. What let the restaurant down was the apparently disorganised service - a long wait to place drinks order after we'd been shown to our table & waiting staff appearing with food we hadn't ordered & having to go back to the kitchen...
