I was up north visiting my parents and they said while you're here we must take you to the Three Wheat Heads at Thropton they do great food. So we duly arrived late Tuesday afternoon and were greeted by very friendly and helpful staff, we had the place almost to ourselves, a lovely atmosphere with great views over the valley... More

We arrived early for our table and were offered drinks to be take on he bar, these were to be brought to us, but were left on a bar until we happened to notice them, I hope they were ours. We were seated in good time and ordered promptly. After an hour and a request to the waiting staff, our... More

I thank you for this report as I will be giving it to the police as you left our establishment without paying for £30 worth of drinks and this is theft. More

Choosing a venue for a family event can be difficult. There's inevitably a feeling that you probably can't please everyone. Well, on this occasion, The Three Wheat Heads did please everyone and surpassed all reasonable expectations. The event was to celebrate a family members 50th Birthday and twenty three of us turned up at the agreed time of 7.30pm. From... More

visited The Three Wheatheads on Sat 1/10/16.Three different mains ordered and all were well cooked,well proportioned and sensibly priced.I tried the Sea Bass which was delicious but not filleted which i didn't ask to be done (my fault).All in all a nice eating experience in this very good Country Inn.

I came here on a Saturday night in early October and it was busy, but not so busy that my Wife and I couldn't dine in their delightful bar area. The menu is to say the least extensive, with an impressive and inventive range for the pescatarian and vegetarian, a well as the carnivore. In fact their specials menu is... More

We were stopping in the nearby village of Rothbury and had been told how good this place was so we booked a table. We were not disappointed! From the very welcoming greeting to a table with a view over beautiful countryside to the fabulous food. We both had lamb which was cooked to perfection as were the accompanying veg. We... More

Looks good from the outside and was well frequented. Called in on the off chance as we passed through Thropton, staying at Holystone. Service was good so we booked for an evening meal. Great food, fabulous service and superb outlook onto the garden (scaffolding up at the moment but doesn't detract from the view too much. Booked to return but... More

We ate here tonight after recommendations from our self catering hosts. It was amazing. The food was excellent as was the service. The staff were delightful. There is an extensive menu and there were lots of specials available. The portions are huge. I was so looking forward to dessert but couldn't manage one! The food was well cooked and flavoursome....

I celebrated my 70th birthday dinner here. The meal was excellent, good choice for main courses and deserts; and also a good children's menu. Fantastic view from the large windows and large children's play area.
