As we have been regulars for Sunday lunch and having been disappointed it seemed an appropriate place to go with friends for Tuesday lunch. The staff are amazing in friendliness and efficiency. To say we were looked after well is an understatement. It's as if we were long lost friends. We all like good friendly service. Just as important is... More

Visited after reading the good reviews on here. Wasn't disappointed and had a good meal. Atmosphere was a little lacking but assume due to off season. Still didn't detract from the good food and been dog friendly in the bar Good value at less that £40 for 2 courses and 2 drinks. The owners dog Guinness is charming too!

We visited the Three Wheat Heads for an evening meal during a short break in Northumberland recently. Good food, friendly, efficient service and great beers too.

Firstly cannot fault the staff in any way, pleasant, polite and efficient. Arrived just before lunch and were a bit dismayed that all that was on offer were a range of fillings on bread or in a baked potato. Baked potato was nice but would not have been first choice, but it is getting late in the year and footfall... More

Really lovely meal, with very pleasant and efficient service. The lamb shoulder and the liver were both beautifully cooked and very tasty. Highly recommend - if we lived nearer we'd be regulars.

After a wonderful walk on the moors up to Drake's Stone and Harbottle Lake we were looking forward to some good food and relaxation at a local Inn based on previous Tripadvisor reports. What a disappointment. The place was soulless and unwelcoming. So to was the grumpy man behind the bar. It then took an hour and a quarter for... More

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
