What a great place! Came for a valentines meal and couldn't eat the dessert as we were so full. Such good food and fabulous atmosphere. The staff were fantastic. If you've not been here before you're missing out.

Popped in on some of the good trip advisor reviews and have to say really impressed. Staff are so tentative, great service and lovely food. Well worth a visit and 100% will be back! We came for Sunday dinner and had the cheese board desert! Please visit, food is fresh and definitely homemade! Lovely

Just had Sunday lunch here and it was really good. The staff were friendly and attentive. I had a booking but rang half an hour before to change the time as we were running late and this wasn't a problem. The food was great and all fresh and homemade. I had the beef but my daughter had chicken and beef,... More

I visited the Northumbrian Piper at around 2:30pm on Sunday 8th January for a Sunday lunch for 2 people. The staff at the bar served me extremely quickly and the food was served 10-15 minutes after we sat down. It was very hot, very tasty and the whole meal was really lovely. We have been several times before and it's... More

Gradually seen reviews of this place suggesting decline but, as we'd always mainly liked it, came on Bank Holiday. The 1st bad sign was the place was dead. That said the Ice Witch beer from Moorhouse Brewery was great; menu wise there were a few choices on the blackboard in addition to their impossible to read normal menu. We went... More

We used to visit most weekends and enjoyed the atmosphere and the food. Not the case on our last visit. Large quantity of tasteless food, no atmosphere and really didn't like the look of the place including the tatty menu . We won't be back which is a shame as we used to enjoy 'our local'. We used to use... More

Recently visited the piper which is a pub we have very often frequented and what a shame the place has deteriorated to what it is now. It used to be a fun family pub with a happy and cheerful group of staff and a great atmosphere and now the staff seem so unhappy and the place was flat. Not the... More

My husband and I with 2 friends had Sunday lunch here. It was delicious. Food was beautifully cooked and piping hot. Portions were very generous with plenty of meat. Would definitely recommend this pub and will be going back again.
