Fantastic service and absolutely delicious food. Staff members were very friendly and food was absolutely worth the price as food is always freshly cooked by a great chef. We tried the crispy duck which was absolutely delicious. Definitely give this place a try.

We lunched here again with a friend during a visit to Hexham, taking the set menu. As usual, service was reasonably prompt and professional though the brigade seemed to be under pressure, perhaps because of service to a party upstairs, and it showed a little. We started with French cafe salad for my wife and friend and butternut squash soup... More
