We've stayed and dined here before and it won't be the last time (even though due to popularity it's getting busier). Meeting friends from Durham it was ideal as we were in one of the cottages attached to the main hotel which gave us a bit of privacy and genuinely felt like a home from home. Great welcome from consistent... More

We were a party of ten family members who hadn't seen each for a while and what a lovely place to meet up in. The evening meals were really good and staff were pleasant and very helpful. Breakfast was also very good and the atmopshere was lovely. Our room even though it was on the top floor was really nice... More

Called for lunch midweek and sat in the bar. The fishcakes and cheese and pesto sandwich were both delicious and the triple cooked chips to die for. Very welcoming and comfortable dining experience. All the staff were friendly and efficient.

We stayed here for one night, on our way to Northumberland. We found that Romaldkirk is a long way away from the busy A1! But it's well worth the journey. Romaldkirk is a small village - a cluster of houses, a church, lots of grassy areas - and the Rose & Crown. The Rose & Crown is a large pub... More

Breakfast was a different matter . Really quite ordinary and certainly not up with previous breakfasts we have enjoyed , Coffee and toast were excellent but the... More

Enjoyed an excellent lunch for seven friends in the hotel. Outstanding service, lovely ambience, excellent food and good wines. Found it by chance and enjoyed the experience so much we returned as a couple for a sandwich lunch the very next day. Will probably be back again... 😊

We were tipped off about this place (although had seen on TA earlier) so decided to give it a go for our anniversary. Lovely meal, well cooked and well presented, in a nice traditional gastro style pub in a quaint village. Add in lovely weather and it made for a very enjoyable dining experience!

We stayed at this small boutique hotel for 3 days, eating at the restaurant each night. There was a warm welcome from Sara and her staff, and every major aspect of the stay was enjoyable. The top floor suite was newly refurbished to a high standard as were the ground floor public areas. The food was very good and above... More

Lots of pluses, rooms,morning news sheet. Breakfast Good. Great for walking and wonderful country side. Dinner Poor for the prices charged. The menu is too big for the kitchen to do properly. Staff mostly friendly, but some were lacking in training.

Have been here on several occasions, warm welcome from all the staff. Food fantastic, price range medium to high, but well worth it. Accommodation second to none. Definitely recommended.
