Made welcome from the minute we walked through the door, of this oldie worldly pub. Found lunch menu a little limited, but decided to try salmon salad, which was lovely. Lots of tasty salmon accompanied with a mixed salad and several pieces of lemon (enough lemon to cover salmon easily). My husband enjoyed his steak and ale pie, which appeared to have large chunks of lean beef. The service was polite and food order was delivered quickly. Our only grumble was that the main restaurant was extremely cold on the day we visited, and unfortunately this resulted in us leaving more quickly than we would have liked. Otherwise a lovely place would definitely return.

We are very happy that you both enjoyed your lunch. We are however very sorry that you found the pub cold, when the wind blows from the north it is very hard to heat the place. we have been decorating for the past few weeks and i have found gaps were the draughts have been coming in so they have been filled so the restaurant feels much warmer now.

Had not long moved into the area - found this place when 'exploring' my new environs !

It is a short drive from Alnwick or off the Alnwick Gardens ( Alnwick north ) exit off the A1.

Head for Denwick, then Rennington ..The staff are friendly and the restaurant is cozy.. a lot of locals recommend it so that says a lot !

I intend to work my way through the menu..it is THAT good.

I asked for the duck breast medium cooked and pink in the middle and it came well done?????? If you are going to have thinks like duck with a wild berry jus, don`t serve it with frozen chips. After reading the reviews on here, we thought we were in for a culinary treat.......nah. Best avoided.

Hello The - Fife - Flyer.
We are sorry you felt that your meal was average.
If you had said something at the time we would gladly have cooked you another Duck or another dish of your choice, we also are only too glad to do potatoes for those customers who don't want chips we are very accommodating when asked. The frozen chips we use are of a very good quality, unfortunately homemade chips are not practical for us to do. We are only human and can make mistakes. Your review was shown to our chef and has been noted.
Once agin our apologies.

Mark and Louise Dean.

This our favorite pub by far. We usualy go once a week as a family but my husband will try to get there for a pint as often as possible. It's a good pint. The owners are very friendly and love children. Everything on their menu is delicious - whether you stick to your usual favorite or try some of the amazing dishes from the blackboard. The portion sizes are huge, with plenty of dishes of chips and seasonal vegetables. Chocolate lumpy bumpy and banana split are two of our favorites - great home made sweets. You get chocolates with your coffee and chocolates for the children to take home too. You won't find a more welcoming pub and restauraunt and I am sure you will want to visit again and again.
I'd recommend booking just to avoid dissapointment.

We arrived lateish but were made to feel very welcome and the availability of wi-fi helped our forward planning. The meal was good and the service prompt and friendly. One more sign would have helped us find the pub in the village more easily, and why should such an excellent establishment not make it as easy as possible for customers to beat a path to its door? Thank you Horseshoes for an excellent experience.
