Superb location, idyllic setting, peacefulness personified. Wonderful hosts that were welcoming, friendly and helpful at all times. Very nice comfortable room with good bathroom facilities and wonderful view from the window. Downstairs resident lounge very accommodating and quirky. Sublime filling and satisfying breakfasts. Pub is great, very engaging and gorgeously kept beer, Northumbrian Gold = Mmmmm! Bar meals were just... More

Living only an hour away, we often come walking around Alwinton and over a drink in the Rose and Thistle afterwards have often said that we must stay. We are so pleased that we did and have just had a fantastic stay there this weekend. Our room (Alwyn) was delightful and we were given such a friendly welcome. We both... More

Two friends and I cycled the Sandstone Way mountain bike track last weekend. 2 Miles from this pub one of our party suffered a blown tyre. Upon arrival (around 8:30pm) we enquired within about finding a phone to call a bike shop/make plans to get a replacement tyre. The old dear in the pub subsequently led my friend around the... More

We spent three nights at the Rose & Thistle at the beginning of June. On arrival we received a warm welcome & were shown to our room, which was clean, comfortable & had beautiful uninterrupted views across to the Cheviot hills. It wasn't so warm in the North East as it had been at home, but the heating was on... More

We've been here several times now. Meals and drinks have all been of very high standard. The bar is a real gathering place for the local community and visitors alike. We were made to feel very welcome and would have no hesitation in recommending it to others. Alwinton is a proper hidden gem and Gareth and Jane the perfect hosts.

If you are in Alwinton you need to eat here. The food is second to none and plenty of it. Some amazing walks near by. Friendly place and a well stocked bar. Kids and dogs welcome. Not too fussy pub but lovely and clean and exactly what you want from a local rural pub. Give it a visit. We didn't... More

We had a lovely stay in this very friendly b&b in the beautiful Cheviots. Accommodation is self contained to inn and is spotlessly clean with everything you need. Food in pub next door is good with plenty of variety. Walks are on your doorstep with a choice of tough fell walks up to the Scottish border or more gentle strolls... More
