“nice for a drink, forget the food”
Reviewed May 7, 2012

We like the Hermitage for a drink, the atmosphere is lively and welcoming.
The food, however, is another thing. Badly presented, lacking taste, cafe food but higher prices! This restaurant is also in need of a good clean. Wont go there again for food.

Stayed at this lovely country pub 2 weeks ago in the beautiful village of Warkworth.
The Hermitage offered everything I required, a genuine beaming smile from all the staff and a wink of the eye to the bar staff guaranteed another pint on the table.
There was a wide variety of dishes on the menu of which I had the chicken curry which came as a very generous portion and served with homemade chips and salad and at a sensible price.
I would not hesitate to stay here again when I am next in the area and I am sorry you seem to have had a few bad reviews as I thoroughly enjoyed my stay.
Well done The Hermitage.

We were staying in warkworth for one night at the Roxbro house and thought we would try here for food we weren't disappointed, when we arrived it was quite busy as it was the week leading up to Christmas and as we hadn't booked we may have to wait 15 minutes but we had only just got our drinks and were shown to a table, service was friendly and quick the food was lovely we shared the wild boar pate for starters then I had fish and chips and partner had the sausage pie, the chips were proper chips and food very tasty, would recommend eating here to anyone.
Ps I have rated the rooms as a 3 as it won't let me submit the review without rating the rooms and as we didn't stay here I was uncertain what to rate them as.

Stayed one night on spec travelling north. Great village with wonderful riverside walks, superb castle and friendly folk. A very friendly welcome from young lady doubling as bar person and receptionist showed us to a clean unpretentious double room with en suite shower etc. Nothing amazing about it but nothing wrong although it may be a bit unintentionally retro for picky guests. Cost for the room including full English breakfast (good it was too) was £80 which is possibly a bit high for mid November and the standard of the room.

We were informed that there was 'live music' later in the bar and although most tables were booked we could reserve in the restaurant. The unintentional 70's retro theme was carried through to the menu, yet despite our forebodings we were treated to some of the best seared king scallops for our starter that we have ever tasted, although the incongruous salad garnish was an irrelevance. Then having decided to get into the spirit of things food wise we ordered steaks rare. Perfectly cooked, tender to the point of butteryness and huge, they were simply superb. Forgettable accompaniments apart from decent handcut chips we ate the lot. Going the whole hog literally we even had puddings - the only real mistake. Friendly service too. Repairing to the bar we found the barman very amenable, efficient and organised and apart from an alarmingly soft collapsed bench seat just to the right of the entrance door, enjoyed the rest of the evening including the singer with a selection of Jennings ales, all well kept but none really a wow. The atmosphere was very comfortable, the locals well-behaved and out to enjoy the evening without the usual loutish drunken behaviour that characterises most towns on a Friday night. In short we had a great night, met some agreeable friendly people and would like to stay again as a stopover. The landlord himself is rather taciturn and short of charm, but the staff compensate well.
