I had a beautiful ham omelette, we waited about 20 /30 mins for our food but to me that shows it's made fresh. The service was excellent, our waitress was very nice & nothing was a bother to... 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. The choice of pork, lamb, chicken or beef. The dinners were very tasty and very sizeable. There is gravy on the dinners, but you are supplied with... More

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

We didn't realise that this gem of an establishment existed until today - what a find, a lovely building in such wonderful grounds!

Ah great news to me that we do have many satisfied customers after all. Thank you very much for your lovely comments. Sometimes when people leave negative comments I like to email them direct (something the business owner can do through tripadvisor) to ask for further information so that we can improve on things. Of course the people dont usually... More

Went after work for a quick bite with friends. Had the chicken chorizo Salad, the plus is that you got a really good chicken portion but the salad was minimal, leaves and not much else. Colleagues meals were all a bit dull.

Disappointed that you were disappointed with you salad which was mainly leaves? Im at a loss to know why this occured as the salad in question is very popular as you said you get a whole chicken breast in it. Quite why you didnt say something to the staff member at the time and then gave us 2 stars for... More
