We offer bed and breakfast and a one-bed (twin) self catering holiday cottage. Our restaurant offers superb food, wines and ales in this traditional Northumberland village pub. If you enjoy good food at a reasonable price then the Pack Horse Inn is the place to eat. All the food is prepared fresh daily using the best locally sourced ingredients. There is no bought in pre-prepared food served at the Pack Horse, and consequently the menu changes almost on a daily basis to ensure the freshest most interesting seasonal food is always available.

The Pack Horse Inn is ideally located for the many wedding venues - including Doxford Barns where I was - and offers exactly what you need: a bed, and a great breakfast. The owners and their staff were fantastic, letting me into my room early to get ready and allowing me to sit
