“Satisfactory Food”
Reviewed July 12, 2014

A fairly limited menu but food was served fresh and piping hot. Restaurant area is not particularly attractive, furnishings dark and a bit dated and one table positioned adjacent to door direct into ladies toilet which is a bit off-putting. Staff were very friendly and welcoming. You can eat in the bar area which is at front and this might be a better option than the gloomy restaurant at the rear.

“Horrible smell”
Reviewed May 31, 2014

I walked in and immediately walked out, the smell was disgusting. We just wanted a quick drink whilst waiting for our table in a nearby restaurant, but unfortunately I was unable to stand the smell.

“Good Value, friendly staff”
Reviewed April 21, 2014

We called for carvery whilst on holiday nearby. Excellent value, staff were lovely. My kind of family run pub :) Food was lovely best mash/roasties I've ever had although the beef was a little undercooked for my liking but my other half couldn't fault it

“Popped in on way back to Rothbury”
Reviewed April 20, 2014

Founs this pub by accident. Have to say we thoroughly enjoyed our food. I had scampi and home made chips with a little salad and my husband had the steak and ale pie. Scampi was just as it should enough to fill and satisfy me. The steak pie was made with a suet crust and this was so good. Pie was full of steak and the feedback from my hubby was just like my mother used to make. Can't say better than that.
