Stayed locally and was recommended to eat here, the menu is quite extensive and some unusual hot skillets and the views are lovely with a large garden.The food was nicely presented , the starters overpriced for the quality.The main course comes complete with a nice dish of vegetables. The land lady and bar man had excellent customer service skills but... More

Catching up with old friends who go there regularly. They'd booked a window table (recommended) and we had fabulous views all evening across the coquet valley. The food was delicious lots of meat and fish dishes and some great veggie options. I had the scallops followed by the tuna steak. Warning - big portions! Very, very tasty and beautifully presented...

The menu is extensive! so many to pick from, but I went for the veggie Theodora which was so yummy and filling. The portions are large and so... More

A life saver. After booking a B&B in Rothbury with which we were very dissappointed, we went for an evening meal at the Three Wheat Heads. The Restaurant had a magnificent view over the Simonside hills and the food was to die for. So much so that we booked for another evening. If only we had known they did B... More

We were advised by our B&B to book in advance for a Saturday night - good advice. Menu OK, difficult to choose, good hot food and portions. Service somewhat slow (but they were busy) and the restaurant was very noisy as guests at a private function on the lawn were constantly streaming to the restaurant bar. Would we go again?... More

A party of six booked a table for a leisurely Sunday evening meal and we couldn't have chosen better. The view from the restaurant was amazing, the food was the best of our four day holiday. The staff went out of their way to meet our needs. We spent a most delightful two hours in the very pleasant surroundings.

Great lunchtime venue. The menu offers a great variety of choices to suit all tastes. The service was excellent. We were a prty of nine people and everyone commented afterwards how much they had enjoyed their meal. Furthermore it was great value for money. Will definitely visit again whenever I am in the area.

Firstly - despite the three stars this isn't a bad pub, but it is a mixed bag. If you're prepared for that then there's much to like. The food is a tad variable - the mains we had (over two nights) were, without exception, perfectly fine pub food at a reasonable price. This wasn't gastropub standard - but that's not... More
