Visited the Pack Horse for the first time in many years today. We received a warm, friendly welcome and nothing was too much trouble. The food was excellent as was the wine. The Pack Horse was the perfect place for our lunch and it won't be long before we go back to try something else from the menu.

Popped in here for a quick snack whilst spending the weekend away for a birthday treat, forgetting it was a Sunday!! Ended up with a roast beef baguette for the husband and I plumped for a half portion roast chicken dinner, as it sounded like the smallest option (after a full cooked english breakfast and a 3 course evening meal...

We went to have Sunday lunch here by default, as I'd phoned another pub in the area, and twice they asked me to call back to make a lunch reservation. We then found The Pack Horse online, and how glad we were to change our plans. The bar area is small, and inviting with a cosy log fire burning in... More

we went here when staying in Ellingham. A cozy environment with good pub food. Lovely wine and great service. And we could walk there from the cottage!

We stayed in the village of Ellingham so this was our local restaurant/pub for our week's stay in Northumberland. It is a lovely country establishment with excellent food which is locally sourced. We did book a table on the three occasions we dined there as they do get busy. All our meals were hot and tasty with no complaints. It... More

Went twice during a weeks holiday rental nearby. One of the best pubs we have eaten at in ages. All produce local as possible, in fact we found out that farmers for the beef, pigs and lamb were all sitting at the bar having a pint when we were there. They also sell their own marmalade. Friendly staff, big garden,... More

Having read all the excellent reviews of the restaurant on tripadvisor we decided to book for Sunday lunch. On arrival we were seated beside the door to the kitchen, when we asked to be moved we were told all other tables were booked but we could move to the snug - not ideal but decided to move there anyway. When... More

Ate here 4 times in a week. First time we popped in on a Fri evening having spent 6 hours travelling. Despite us not booking and them being full, they accommodated us (we sat in the bar area rather than wait for a table in the restaurant). The food was tasty and filling. Husband had lamb shoulder, I had baked... More
