We were passing through Hexham and stopped for a walk round and some lunch. We luckily found this pub which gave us everything we were looking for. Comfortable pleasant place to sit and enjoy lunch. Friendly easy going. Good food and beer. Wish we had a pub like this near us!

Dropped by to meet up with family for a snack. Lovely wood burning stove on a very cold day! Nice menu, friendly staff and lovely local beers - Allendale Brewery 😀 Fish fingers for my granddaughter were delicious and every scrap eaten, soup gorgeous and hummus also lovely. Nice vibe and decor. Look forward to a return visit to sample... More

We tried this Pub on a Friday night-the pub was very busy but the staff were very friendly and the Menu had a good choice. The roaring log fire added to the atmosphere-would go again if in the area.

Tried their scrambled egg and smoked salmon on sourdough, very nice, minimal wait for service, tea and coffee hot. Very different and vast change from when we were last here 3 years ago, decor updated and now a well patronised friendly atmosphere. We were outside their stated brunch hours, but when I realised that and apologised to bar staff I... More

Classic British menu, which normally isn't my thing. The mushroom wellington was simply perfect. The service was unpretentious, natural and warm. I'm looking forward to my next visit to this interesting, old school, yet progressive pub. The veg served with my mushroom wellington was cooked to perfection.

My wife I dropped in to The Heart of Northumberland mid morning with our two dogs to grab a hot drink and warm up from a cold wind. We ended up grabbing brunch as the pub was comfy and warm. The Northumberland Breakfast and Haggis & Eggs on toast we had was lovely and the dogs appreciated a dog biscuit... More

This is a great place. The staff are friendly & welcoming without being formal. The beef Sunday Lunch was superb - knife not necessary as the meat just fell apart it was so tender! Considering the quality, i also thought it excellent value. Thoroughly recommend!

Into Hexham we drove quick Google search and this little gem popped up. Entered the pub and we were greeted with two friendly members if staff and delightful kitchen... More

We had been in and around Hexham this weekend and needed something to eat before our long journey home. A quick TA check brought this pub up at the top of the list and it didn't disappoint. Great atmosphere, as in not too much noise and obviously a popular pub with locals. Ordered our food and we're told that we... More
