Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Booked by my wife for my birthday meal. Was greeted in a friendly manner and shown to our table. The food and drinks were served promptly. I had the Gammon and must admit I found it rather salty. The pub was very quiet but we...had an enjoyable evening.More

12 of us went for a 65th birthday meal, on arrival the first impression was this place is a bit old and dated but clean and friendly staff. The food was absolutely fantastic and portion sizes were huge. The only thing we were left disappointed...in was the fact they were fully booked for the following night so we couldn’t return! Would highly recommend this place and we will definitely visit again when back in the area.More

My wife and I were visiting the area and we decided to give the Inn a visit after looking at some online reviews. Pleasant country inn with an authentic feel and very welcoming staff and hosts who couldn't be more helpful or attentive. I sampled...some of the local beer which was delicious and my wife some of a local cider . I had the salad with a generous helping of locally smoked salmon and prawns amazing and my wife had chicken in a white sauce with generous amounts of veg and massive tasty potato wedges which she thoroughly enjoyed. Its great to have authentic home cooked food and this is becoming less common in pubs where the food is often bought in pre prepared. We were asked if we would like dessert which I would have loved but we were just too full although we did have another drink each to cap off the lovely meal. Would definitely visit again if we came back to Northumberland on a visit. A real asset to a beautiful County.More

Lovely, tasty fresh food and very good service. We had our dog with us and they had set us a table up in the bar area which was a great spot. Staff were helpful and attentive, as others have said the portions are more than...generous so we did have to take a box home. Lots of produce is locally sourced. Well worth a visitMore

As far as I can tell, the chips are home made. You won't find fresher food than that prepared at the Horseshoes.
