Stopped off on the way up the A1 and so glad we did. The service was super friendly. And the food was delicious. Recommend Black pudding fritter, goats cheese salad, burger and the pork pie. Fantastic food. So much better than MacDonalds!!! Look out for the sign on the A1. Olive green and classy.

We visited whilst staying locally in the village, having tried to get to the bar when we arrived on the Saturday we knew it was popular from the large crowd gathered both inside and out. We booked an early evening meal (accommodating old folks) and were delighted that our four legged pup could join us. Food, service, surroundings and price... More

I accept we were a slightly last minute booking and were lucky to get the two bedrooms we required. However, these were very "tight" (I kept banging my shins on the bed legs) and need a little updating. We did peek into the other three rooms (they had been vacated) and two of these were lovely and a good size.... More

Dinner here Friday night on recommendation and even though they had group of 40 plus dining, there was no delay and very prompt and attentive service. Seared salmon was delicious. Only after meal we were told regular chef on 3 weeks holiday and landlords wife was cooking!! Well done and watch out regular chef!

It's a few months since we went to the Pack Horse. I am delighted to say the food is still excellent. Service was very good too. Plenty of menu choice without going over the top. We chose tempura prawns, duck with blackberry and a salad for starters. Main course for two of us was the rare beef which was superb... More

After a days diving in 10 degree water this is exactly what I wanted. We were quite late, so didn't bother with starters. Most of us went for the steak which cooked to perfection in each case. Excellent flavour and good fries/salad too. The vegetarian option was a small portion but as soon as this was mentioned the chef quickly... More

Found on yell.com and booked in advance of our weekend break. Charming setting. Delightful decor- all recently done. Service -pleasant but distracted. Food- menu not quite as varied as website sample but adequate choice and selection. Kitchen staff prompt and beautiful presentation. We especially enjoyed tomato bread to start.

We ate here on Saturday 21st May (a family of 5). The food was delicious, can't fault the presentation or the portion sizes. We have dined here on several occasions over the last 7 years and whenever we are in the area we try to visit. Initially we came across the pub whilst staying in the village at Ellingham Hall...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
We offer bed and breakfast and a one-bed (twin) self catering holiday cottage. Our restaurant offers superb food, wines and ales in this traditional Northumberland village pub. If you enjoy good food at a reasonable price then the Pack Horse Inn is the place to eat. All the food is prepared fresh daily using the best locally sourced ingredients. There is no bought in pre-prepared food served at the Pack Horse, and consequently the menu changes almost on a daily basis to ensure the freshest most interesting seasonal food is always available. ... more   less
