We were booked in here for the evening of our longest day walking the wall - 21 miles. I'd contacted Denise a few weeks before to book in for dinner but due to the length of our walk and the 7pm seating for dinner Denise booked us a table at the local pub. We managed to get to the Brookside just before 6pm and were therefore in time for dinner. The B&B is easy to find from the wall being about a 10 minute walk (although after 21 miles I wish it had been a bit closer). The room was well appointed, spacious and comfortable. The visitors lounge and honesty bar is a really nice touch and nice room to spend some time in. Dinner was really nice - the best garlic mushrooms I've had in a long time! Breakfast was great too. Denise was a really welcoming host and I felt really looked after.
