Food and ambience

Location and contact

The Travellers Rest is situated in stunning Northumberland, only a short drive away from the market town of Hexham. The inn, which dates back to the 1840s, has a warm and cosy atmosphere due to the low-beamed ceilings and large open fire. We offer a warm welcome and high standard of hospitality to all. There is a large selection of real ales, spirits and wines available, as well as freshly cooked dishes sourced from local ingredients.

One of us had a delicious steak -the other an inedible Thai green curry. Complimented them on steak -no question was everything ok with the curry-clearly barely touched but completely uninterested-not acceptable today-maybe uninterested-young untrained team?More

The food was fine, as was the service but there was a definite lack of atmosphere. We're used to our local where someone - both locals or visitors are always up for a chat
