Recently refurbished, a new beer garden in the back. We had a group of 6 in the back room. Service was a little slow but the food was hot and tasty. I had a Cajun Chicken burger with sweet potato fries & mayo, the roast beef looked good, the fish and chips and fishcakes were also good.There were salad and... More

Just popped in for a drink and to check out the options for eating. Will try this place on our next visit to Hexham. What we saw looked very nice. There is a small terrace to the rear where it is pleasant to sit. It's not applicable to us but the pub is dog friendly.

Third visit to this pub but am pining for the veggie pie which we had at the first visit. It is rare to get a good short crust veggie pie and this place had it but the second time we were told ' we don't do this anymore'. The menu at this pub is short and without the pie there... More

On a quiet Sunday (at the end of April) we were pleased to find Heart of Northumberland open. We enjoyed a very good Ham Hock Terrine and Pease Pudding with a side order of delicious Sweet Potato chips. The vegetarian sausages were okay but the onion gravy was sadly gelatinous and unappetising. The Apple Crumble with clotted cream ice-cream was... More

Arrived on a sunny lunchtime and was pleasantly surprised to find out there is a patio area outside where you can eat! The service and food were both really good. Not many places in Hexham have outside seating so this is definitely a plus. I ordered the fish and chips - it was really good, and I would highly recommend/get... More

We dropped in on 'classic Monday' - tasty food on special, charming and helpful staff and great music playing - who could ask for more? Good choice of vegetarian food, freshly prepared, and good beers. Would definitely visit again when in the area.

Found this place purely by accident on Friday evening, looking for somewhere in Hexham to accom 5 people at short notice. Nothing too much bother for both the guys behind the bar, good selection of ales and wine. Food was excellent, good value and loads of it, I had the lamb special which was perfectly cooked washed down with a... More

We've been here a few times and the staff are always welcoming. There are a couple of vegetarian options and plenty of meat options. A bit more expensive than usual pub grub, though.

We called in for lunch after a walk around Hexham, the pub was actually chosen by our dog as they had a bowl of fresh water outside - he made a good choice. A good range of real ales and an excellent light lunch, staff were great happy and friendly and the decor although sparse was comfortable. well worth avisit... More
