I had a well made and very tasty pate and the biggest plate of turkey with...... mashed and roast potatoes, parsnips, carrots, sprouts, pigs in blankets and... More

We returned to the Northumbrian Piper again last night and had a lovely meal. Thursday is Grill Night and both my husband and I chose the rump steak. It was beautifully cooked and served with salad and chips. This together with a bottle of wine cost £20 for the two of us! Great value, friendly service and a nice atmosphere

I'm so sorry that you didn't enjoy your food when you retuned to see us there is no excuse for the chicken to be not good we use only chicken breast in our chicken dishes and burgers . I will be looking into this. The chips we buy are fresh cut chips and we have had quality issues with them... More

Visited here with my wife and two small children. The pub is not on a main road but isn't that hard to find. We ordered from the Sunday menu and all had dinners.

How nice to hear that you enjoyed your Sunday roast it's very comforting to know that we are getting it right most of the time. We strive to get it right all the time but sometimes expectations of some people make this illusive. Please tell your friends and return as many times as you like your custom is greatly appreciated.

...to find a genuine country pub on the fringe of a housing estate and close to the A1; its a gem and much better than similar establishments which tend to be part of chains. Food good as was the range, prices a little less than others of its kind. Staff and service excellent.

Thank you for your lovely review and kind words. Yes we are quite a hidden gem so much so that even people in Gosforth dont know we are here. You certainly dont expect such a lovely building tucked away in its own mature grounds on a 1960s housing estate do you. It nice that we can be what we want... More
