A contemporary update of the great British pub in a stunning, grade II listed building in the heart of the historic market town of Hexham, Northumberland. We specialise in doing things right-entirely homemade food, both classics & seasonal creations, beautifully kept local cask ales, artisan coffee, friendly service, roaring log-burners & pretty much anything else you would want from a great local, independent pub.

Good selection of beer - including some local options. Good food (even on a Monday night) and a real fire. Friendly staff too. All in all now the best pub in Hexham, IMHO.

To begin with the beer was served too cold. The service throughout our lunchtime visit was extremely slow and the food was poor. The fish was undercooked and returned to the kitchen and it took so long to re-appear that we left without eating it....More
