Called in today for a couple of pints after a pleasant walk in the South Tyne valley. Really nice centuries old pub with a great ambience. Beer was spot on and landlord very welcoming. Very pleased we stopped by.

Great to find the pub open and loved again. Very friendly and welcoming. Food in the evenings and pub open every weekday evening and lunchtime too on the weekend. Well worth a visit if you’re in the area. I highly recommend the rhubarb cider!
