Had a good xmas meal with a group of fiends. Very nice pub with good atmosphere. The food was good as was the beer, and the staff were very friendly and welcoming. Wouldn't hesitate to recommend.

The atmosphere is cozy and the food was delicious! There pints were cold and the steak and Guinness pie is the best I've ever had! We will defiantly return for a meal again!

Very slow service had to wait nearly a hr for our starter ,a lot of staff but just slow . Food ok but have had better ,potatoes were burnt .and vegetables were overcooked . Perhaps they need more help in the kitchen .

Thank you for doing a review, we are disappointed to read about your experience and only wish you had informed us at the time of your visit and as you haven't said when your visit was I can't comment on the wait for your starters but find an hour very unusual for a customer to wait for their starter and...

Was here last Saturday for dinner and it was a real treat. The food and service was very good. The pub has a lovely ambiance and a real log fire.

Another example of excellent Dinning in Corbridge - a cosy seat by the fire is always a pleasure on a cold winter evening and with the addition of some great comfort home cooking it makes for an amazing combination - looking forward to many meals here in the future

We have been there on multiple occasions; it is our typical choice of stop-over when we are visiting Corbridge for a day out. Centrally located, it is easy to reach from the train station, and then continue to Hadrians wall (or visit Black Bull on your way back from the wall). The food is very traditional yet with twist which... More

This has always been a great pub and restaurant and is a great pit stop when travelling the A 68 or A69. A change of ownership has altered the menu somewhat and we found we were limited for choice due to an overcomplicated way of finding what was and what was not gluten free. Vegie and vegan options are clearly... More

Thanks for taking time to do a review, we are sorry to hear that you were not given our 'Gluten Free Menu' which is separate to our main menu and lists the GF selection, we try to run the pub the same as we have done for the past 21 years that we have been here and I do hope... More
