“Great Hotel”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 21, 2012

We recently had a family meal, eight people, at the Hogs Head Inn and with it being a Friday evening the restaurant was exceptionaly busy, however the quality of the food and service was excellent. The staff are very friendly and their attention to detail is very impressive. We will certainly re-visit the hotel

We saw this hotel on the net and were a bit worried after phoning reservations to be told it had only just opened, but everything turned out fine. It's not luxurious, but all is clean and tidy and decorated to a good standard. The breakfast is tasty and hot and presented well. Only a couple of miles outside the centre of Alnwick and only a stones throw off the A1, it's very handy as a base.

Thank you for your review - just to make one point we are actually a pub with rooms and as such don;t have a reservations desk... Glad you enjoyed your stay.

We stayed at this hotel on a weekend in august just a couple of weeks after opening. When I rang to book room was booked into 2 rooms they were joined and these were really nice. A nice touch was the hotel rang on the day to confirm we were coming and asked how we wanted the rooms set up which I thought was a really nice touch. The rooms are new so are clean and comfortable, they have tea and coffe plus bathroom has shower gel. there is a restaurant downstairs which we used for breakfast and dinner on second night and was really good. there is a service station next door if you need any extras. The only problem we had was it wasnt signposted very well but hopefully that may be sorted soon as if you miss turn off you end up back on a1 and have to drive a long way to get off the a1 again. We had a great weekend staff are really nice and will hopefully return soon.

Me and my family stayed at The Hog's Head Inn for a weekend earlier this month.

I have to say we were very impressed. The venue is absolutely lovely and the staff made us feel very welcome.

We had adjoining rooms which were really convenient with having two children with us. They were more than comfortable, very clean and had everything that you would need for a weekend trip.

The food was very nice, we had an evening meal, breakfast and a carvery while staying at the venue and we were very impressed with every meal we had. We also took friends and family up the weekend after for a carvery as it was that nice!

The venue is also very close to Alnwick Castle & Gardens, so is really convenient for families looking for fun trips out.

Overall, I'd highly recommend.

I have stayed at this hotel on two occasions. On both occasions my husband and I had a lovely stay.

The rooms are large, spotless, with large comfortable beds (so much so we slept in!)

We had two evening meals here and the food was very tasty- love the crab and prawn starter and the seabass. The puddings were very tasty.

In particular, we were very happy with the service we received. The staff were friendly and always happy to help and we felt they could not have done more for us.

An asset to Alnwick and a great base to explore Northumberland.

Don't get me wrong the look of this place is fantastic, the staff were friendly & they have san miguel on draft. That aside i would say i was very disappointed, the menu, where do i start? Well first of all if your not a pork lover(which i'm not) there is not a lot to choose from. I found the kids menu a little strange too, a goats cheese tart?? Their lunch menu i would have to say isn't great either. Anyway we ordered in the end two kids meals and a burger which took an amazing 45mins & it wasn't busy & i would have at least expected the food to be hot on arrival not warm! Our coleslaw was warm, my chips had been reheated and the taglailette was very bland to say the least. There was at least 5 tables around where we were sitting that needed cleared but staff walked past and our table only got cleared when my son wanted to order dessert, One word= disappointing

We do like to think we have plenty of non porky dishes - all we can say though, is please come back and give us another try?
