Very welcoming and lovely place to call in for a drink or something to eat! We called in here twice during a two-day stay in the area.

After visiting Haltwhistle many times a year we found this little pub just off the high street. There is a little market square and you find the pub just down a short lane. The staff are very friendly and the pub also accepts well behaved dogs. The food is really nice and the home made burgers are yummy. Good thing its its not far from Hadrian's Wall and after a good meal, short drive, you can walk the meal off and return later for a drink

We had dinner at the Black Bull in early May of 2012. It's a cozy local pub in a building whose foundations (According to the bartender) date to the 1400's. The waitress got a little short with me when I asked what gammon was (In the States we just call it ham) but the bartender was pleasant and I had a good local cider on his recommendation. The place is chock full of football trivia books and and was nice & warm after a cold day of hiking.
