“Pleasure Aplenty”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 13, 2008

My wife and I were visiting from Australia and had the pleasure of staying at this lovely hotel. My wife was in a wheel chair at the time and the staff went out of their way to make her feel welcome and comfortable. The food was first class and the chef should be listed as a national treasure. Try the locally smoked fish for breakfast- kippers or haddock? - I couldn't decide so had both each morning. The draught beer is also kept in remarkably good nick and adds fully to the quality of the stay as do the locals who are friendly and highly entertaining. We'll visit again stock market permitting!

5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2008

We visited this hotel set in a small village in Northumberland after reading a review in a national newspaper. It was everything it promised to be.....warm & welcoming with cosy bar and great real ales. The restaurant serves locally sourced produce and the desserts are to die for (the owner has won awards for them). The rooms are simply furnished with state of the art tv and lwe had a huge bathroom with a jacuzzi together with lashings of hot water. The breakfast was one of the best i've ever had and everyone from the manager to the chef made us feel so welcome. One word of warning though.....if you are addicted to your mobile phone..there is no signal in Wark!!

  • Liked — A quiet cosy hotel with good food & beer
  • Disliked — Nothing
  • Stayed October 2008, traveled as a couple
