Lovely meal with friends

This is a lovely village pub with gorgeous views, honestly you should visit just to see the view. It was a wonderful setting for a meal. We had a wonderful meal, the portions are so generous and the food was high quality. The menu is very extensive, there was almost too much choice! But I settled... read more

I called in here on recommendation and was not disappointed with the Sunday Lunch. I chose the medium meal which is 3 slices of meat but next time I will go for the large 5 slices! The meat was so tender and tasty. The vegetables were ready on our table by the time we sat down and they were fresh... More

We booked up here for my Mams 75th birthday meal. We have been visiting this area for over forty years so seemed the right place to go. We were not disappointed. Great choice and all 8 of us thoroughly enjoyed our meals. I would personally recommend the king prawns, scallops and monkfish dish and the lamb in red wine dish.... More

I had the Moroccan Chicken sizzler, the sauce was delicious with tender chicken. I asked for vegetables and they were cooked al dente perfect! Absolutely excellent meal and attentive staff. Could not fault it. Shared the cheese board with my sister which had a good selection of cheeses. Also the bill was very reasonable which was a bonus.

This is the first time I've put any reviews on Trip but... More

We were staying in the area for a week and never ate any where else, in fact another few days were needed to try everything I fancied on the menu. The view from the restaurant is fabulous so the window tables are much in demand. The room as buzzing each evening and so booking is highly recommended during the summer.... More

Visited Harbottle for a week's holiday last week and my partner and myself wanted to have a meal out with a drink or two. However because of the distance to Thropton from Harbottle didn't want the price of a taxi on top so were reluctant to go but so glad we did even though we couldn't have a drink. The... More
