Stayed four nights bed and breakfast. Room small but very comfortable. Breakfast between 9 & 10 but kindly gave us early breakfast at 8 so we could get out and about on the local busses. Staff very attentive and nothing was too much trouble.

Well, next time we come to England, we will be stopping by to visit. Perhaps have a pint of Guinness and a bite to eat.

An ancient and historic pub, where Robbie Burns once slept, offering a warm Northumbrian welcome and great local food - try our fabulously fresh fish and chips, or delicious beef sourced from a farm just down the road.Service with a smile and a relaxed and comfortable meal waits for you - there's been an inn on this site for around 600 years so why not call in and take a break - we serve food from 12 noon until 9 pm seven days a week.
