Visited again for Sunday lunch and once more it did not disappoint, service was great, staff very friendly and super helpful to all around us and the Sunday roast has to be the best in the area. I almost don't want to review for fear of having to book in future

This pub used to be awful before being bought privately, completely re-modelled and dramatically improved. It is now an attractive modern pub with great range of beers, fantastic food (and a good menu), really nice staff, live music and a cool ambience.

Thoroughly enjoyed the first (hopefully of a regular event) special Vegetarian night at the Heart! The place was warm, friendly and buzzing - it was a treat to enjoy the real fire and candles and have a choice of imaginative veggie dishes for a change. The roast pear starter was particularly good, with main courses influenced by Morocco, Thailand and... More

My husband and I had an evening meal here. It was quite quiet as it was the Tuesday after New Year. We were welcomed by staff and seated at a vacant table. The food was very good and we'll presented. It was quiet when we went in but had noticed that on New Year's day it was very popular and... More

LOVED this place. We were struggling to find somewhere for a decent pub lunch and stumbled upon this little pub. It's easy to miss, but try not to! The fire was going, and the staff were so friendly. The pub allows dogs which I love. The food was really good with a good range on the menu, and the beers... More

Website implies you can book on line. We booked on line for 2 people the morning of the lunch expecting to be told we were too late. No communication was received so we arrived for lunch only to be told by the owner that they were fully booked. No apology or explanation given as to why we had not been... More

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
