Superb accommodation, friendly and welcoming owners, great food and atmosphere - what more could you ask for? Breakfast was at 7.30 am (our choice) on the Sunday morning and Gareth provided us with one of the best 'Full English' breakfasts I've had and still was cheerful, friendly and obliging despite the early hour. The fresh fruit salad was an unexpected bonus and set us up for a brilliant day of walking in the Cheviot hills. This Inn is situated in a truly beautiful part of Northumberland. I would recommend the Rose and Thistle in Alwinton to anyone who wants a comfortable bed, great food, splendid local beer (Tyneside Blonde) and a wonderful friendly atmosphere.

Fabulous fresh home cooked food, there was 15 of us and we all had a great meal, would really recommend Prawn Cocktail, the best I've ever had! Also the ham salad is a wow, and the steak pie. Well anything of the menu is excellent.
Not forgetting how great the venue is, big comforty seats and tables, with a territic views.

We were staying locally and ate here 4 times during the week trying something different each time. Each meal was home cooked and would leave the biggest eaters satisfied. The steak pie deserves a special mention.

Meals were washed down with a decent pint of local real ale and the views from the garden or through the large windows is fantastic.

We intend returning one day to say hello again to Gareth and his family.

Generous portions of good pub grub. We had scampi and chips served with salad and coleslaw. Freshly cooked and lovely home made chips. Also had glasses of real ale from a local brewery. Locals were very friendly and helped us plan a cycle route for the next day
